14 awesome behind the scenes photos from some of our favorite blockbuster movies

What goes on behind the scenes of a movie is often as intriguing as the film itself! You may be lucky enough to get work as an extra or know someone who can sneak you in for a quick tour.  But for most of us, shoots are highly protected and often completely out of bounds. Thankfully, social networks mean that it's easier for us to get a glimpse of life on the other side of the camera!
