Crucial final frames

Postby OP Tipping » Sun Apr 30, 2017 3:16 am UTC

There are a few frames, maybe a quarter of a second, at the end of BvS where flecks of dirt rose off Kal-El's coffin. My wife missed it and argued with me that I was imagining it but the electric internet tells me I wasn't.


There are similarly a few frames at the end of X-men: The last stand in which Magneto wobbles a chess piece.

Can you think of other examples where crucial information is given in the last fraction of a second before the roll of credits?

Inception famously goes black just before revealing the answer.

Michael Caine says he's got a great idea, at the end of The Italian Job..? (Ok, so it then goes into the scenery-porn and musical outro of the credits, not a post-credits stinger, but this was already quite a sophisticated ending for a 1960s British crime-caper romp... :P)

Yeah but I am talking about literally the last fraction of a second before the end of the film: blink and you'll miss it.

Inception is probably another case, yes, with that final wobble.
