While it took over 10 years to get a fourth Jurassic Park movie made, Chris Pratt somehow knew he’d be the one to star in it.

That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which checks out some facts a million years in the making with Jurassic World!
Marvel’s Ant-Man opens in theaters today and to this point we’ve seen no shortage of trailers, clips and TV spots showing off all kinds of footage. But, on the last stop on his promotional tour for the movie, Paul Rudd stopped by to visit Conan O’Brien and brought something extra special.
Did you know that Marvel has been working on an Ant-Man movie since the late-1980s?

This is just one of the little facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which proves size matters with Ant-Man!
Here’s how fast motion-capture technology is evolving: On Rise of the Planet of the Apes, all the motion-capture work had to be completed after principal photography had been completed, but on Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, just a few years later, the ape actors shot alongside the human actors on set, even in exterior locations. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which gets into some serious monkey business with Dawn of the Planet of the Apes!

Anne Hathaway memorably played Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises, but she very nearly played another catty superhero.
