1) Walter White is real
Can you believe that Walter White is actually real?
Yes! Walter Eddy White is his real name and he considers himself as the best meth cook in Alabama (Duh).
He cooked meth for over 10 years, and gave up when his lawyer warned him about the DEA. Well looks like the real Walter wasn't so ballsy. It's so scary yet cool when you realise that one of the most badass men in television history actually existed.
2) Losing an arm after '127 hours' of struggle.
127 hours starring James Franco was inspired from true events which happened to Aron Ralston.
With no help, food and water he finally survived with only one arm left. In his defense, nothing was ever Handy at that situation. Funny how he doesn't have enough hands to function but enough to shoot himself the entire time. Swag much?
3) The Wolf of the Wall Street in real life.
Jordan belfort a motivational speaker and former stock broker, Who actually pleaded guilty to his fraud and crimes which related to the stock exchange.

4) The chapters from Ed and Lorraine Warren
The Sneaky Asian James Wann picked an amazing plot from the case of Ed and Lorraine warren.
Being Paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren came across some of the most dangerous and spooky paranormal cases out of which 'The Conjuring' was the spookiest of the all. Imagine if some of our films were true? Nah. We put too much masala and end up with Aranmanais and Kanchanas.
5) The Master of Suspense
The most favourite movie of Alfred hitchcock 'Psycho' was inspired by true events.
This movie made an huge impact on the English audience as it was the first movie to showcase a different type of film making and having excessive violence in it.

6) American gangster
Based on a true story of the drug lord Frank Lucas and the detective who brought him down. Russell Crow and Denzel Washington carried this biography drama extremely well. Steven Zaillian is really good with his pen and shown us that a real life story can be exciting as a fictional movie.
7) The real case of Benjamin Button.
Sam Berns, The 17-year-old was the boy that grew up too fast and unfortunately passed away.

8) When you play the Game of Thrones, You either Win or you Die.
George R.R. Martin's 'The Song of ice and fire' was inspired from many true events which took place around 1422.

LONG LIVE THE KING!

The cause of her death was of dehydration and malnourishment.
10) The Texas Chainsaw Massacre!
The Most Horrifying Movie of 1974 and 2003 was also inspired by true events. Isn't it spooky to have such characters in real life? Ed Gein didn't actually kill people with a chainsaw, he shot his victims and gutted their bodies like that of a deer while removing their heads.
11) Wait, Did Bruce wayne direct an oscar winning film?
Yes, Ben Affleck's 2012 film Argo was based on a real CIA mission to rescue six US diplomats from Tehran during the Iran hostage crisis. The best part was that- When Argo won the oscar for the best motion picture the CIA revealed what was real and what was wasn't on twitter. I guess Batman can really do anything. Hmm
12) The Real Bomb Defusal Expert.
Sgt. Jeffery Sarver, An Iraq bomb defusing expert claims that The Hurt Locker is a story which was based on his real life. He tried to sue the Oscar winning team but got convinced later. If what he implies is true then it's only scary to even think about what this man has been through in life.
13) Spielberg's magical "The Schindler's List"
The incredible true story of Oskar Schindler , a German angel who saved the lives of more thousand Jews during the hollow cast . The girl in the red coat who was well known in the film wasn't a fictional character. The most respected and wonderful part of the film was Steven Spielberg's refusal to accept his salary for making this film.
14) A Whale Sinking a boat?
In the Heart of the Sea starring Chris Hemsworth where the plot Involves on a Whale Sinking a Boat around 1870, That is not all of it. This is a true event and Herman Melville later got inspired for his novel.
A Whale Master planned and sunk a BOAT in 1870, isn’t that AMAZING? Funny thing is that back then Whales were the Backstabbers.
15.Vetrimaran's victorious VISARANAI
Wonder why a tamil film came in between a list of Hollywood facts , its because Visaranai is very close to my heart. The writer of the book 'lock up' (which inspired Visaranai) who is known as Auto Chandran happens to be my uncle. The struggle which the lead in the film experiences was not even half of what happened in reality. Vetrimaran's Visaranai won special awards in Venice Film Festival and there was a special mention for my uncle Auto Chandran for sharing his experiences and feelings through the book. Chandrakumar aka Auto Chandran can still be found riding auto in Coimbatore despite the fame which he got through Visaranai.
