What is an Easter egg. It’s hidden feature(s) that are contained on the disc and to access them one must press a sequence of keys to view them. Not all disc will have them.

Incredible Hulk (2008)
Captain America makes a cameo. In the alternate opening it shows Bruce Banner wandering around the Antarctic emo-style, trying not to get enraged when, surprise, he Hulks out. The sequence is 2:25 long, and the cameo comes right near the end as an avalanche crashes down toward the camera. Got to be quick with the pause button.
B[/B] U.S Army makes a requisition request to Stark industries, which it is approved.
B[/B] Blueprints of the military requisition which is used later in the film to attempt to capture the hulk.
B[/B] A Classified Document addressed to Nick Fury. Threat Level is Red, Surveillance only manhunt of Bruce Banner is not over.
Courting The Hulk
Bruce is at home eating breakfast before going to his job at the bottling factory. While eating breakfast, he clicks past several TV stations to find a show he can watch to help himself learn Portugese. One of the shows he passes by is “The Courtship of Eddie’s Father” an early 70’s show starring Bill Bixby, who would go on to play Bruce Banner in the late 70’s TV series The Incredible Hulk (opposite Lou Ferrigno as the Hulk).
Dr. B Banner is walking up the hill in the town in Guatemala the music that is playing is from the original TV series that starred Bill Bixy as Dr. Banner and Lou Ferringo as the Hulk.
Cryosync - Stark Industries
The cryo containers bear the name of the lab that made the super soldier serum and the serum name is dropped many times. Stark Industries played a part in the weapons used.

You may recall the scene more clearly knowing that this is right around when Stark says to Potts,â€Letâ€™s face it, this is not the worst thing youâ€™ve caught me doing.â€
[B]This is the so called Easter Egg list if you want to call it that. Maybe more little innuendos and projected perspective’s for past current and future time-lines all in the realm of super-heroes and super-villains. Hardcore Marvels with most likely have a better grasp.
Movies to come.[/B] [B]
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)[/B] [B]
Hulk Sequal (2012 Rumored)
Iron Man 3 (2012)
The Avengers (2012)
All references have a approx time in which they occur in the film[/B]
A small newspaper clipping on Ivan Vanko’s workshop wall in Russia. On that clipping two surfaced submarines and the word “Atlantis.”
Could this be in reference to the home Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner. The mutant son of a human sea captain and of a princess of the mythical undersea kingdom of Atlantis, Namor possesses the super-strength and aquatic abilities of the “Homo mermanus” race, as well as the mutant ability of flight, along with other superhuman powers. Through the years, he has been alternately portrayed as a good-natured but short-fused superhero, or a hostile invader seeking vengeance for perceived wrongs that misguided surface-dwellers committed against his kingdom. The first known comic book antihero, the Sub-Mariner has remained a historically important and relatively popular Marvel character. He has served directly with the Avengers, Fantastic Four, the Invaders, and the X-Men as well as serving as a foil to all of them on occasion.[/B]
Although this gentleman is introduced as Larry King, look again it’s Stan Lee. Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor, actor, producer, publisher, television personality, and the former president and chairman of Marvel Comics.
[B]The Ten Rings
The Ten Rings is the name of the terrorist organization that abducts Tony Stark in Iron Man. The Ten Rings receives much of its weaponry from Stark Industries through Obadiah Stane.
The guy who gives [Whiplash] the Monaco ticket is from Ten Rings, That means that The Mandarin’s group was working behind the scenes to help Whiplash get his revenge on Tony Stark, which means that they’re possibly manipulating other elements in the story.
The Mandarin (Iron Man 3 Rumored) is a superb athlete with tremendous skill in the various martial arts. Through repeated practice, he has toughened all the striking surfaces of his body, especially his hands, which are covered with thick calluses. He can even split Iron Man’s magnetic-beam reinforced alloy armor with repeated blows. So great is the Mandarin’s martial arts ability, that he can even survive years without food and water, apparently sustaining himself purely via his mastery of chi. The precise degree of The Mandarin’s martial art powers has been
the subject of multiple implied retcons by Marvel Comics. Initially, Mandarin was portrayed as being such a superhumanly skilled martial artist that he could destroy Iron Man’s armor with his bare hands. Later portrayals focused on his use of the rings, and implicitly retconned the Mandarin’s skill to being great but no longer superhuman. The most recent continuity has restored Mandarin’s martial arts ability to its original superhuman level. The Mandarin is one of Marvel Earth’s greatest scientific geniuses, and highly skilled in various sciences. Not only has he made himself into an expert authority on alien Makluuan science, but he has also built upon this knowledge by making further discoveries based upon it. The principal personal weapons of the Mandarin are the ten rings which he wears on the fingers of each hand. The rings’ operations cannot be explained by contemporary Earth science, but it is known that they served as near-limitless power sources for the warp-drive engines of the Makluan starship of Axonn-Karr. The Mandarin learned how to convert the rings to his personal uses and to make them respond to his mental commands[/B]
[B]Reading the list of race car drivers you will notice the name Chapman
So who the heck is Chapman?
Keen eyed Marvel readers know that Joseph Chapman is the alter ego for Union Jack. A WWII member of Captain Americaâ€™s Invaders and Britainâ€™s batman-like character.[/B]
[B]Notice the Roxxon logo on the car flipping in the air.
Roxxon is the world’s largest conglomerate. Roxxon is notorious for its determination to make massive profits regardless of any laws or moral principles, and continually covertly uses unethical and illegal means to increase its profits. As such, it is involved in numerous criminal plots that require the opposition of the various superheroes to stop. The name of the company resembles that of Exxon, an American petroleum company often criticized for its profiteering at the expense of the environment.
While this fictional company has encountered numerous superheroes, it has most notably been at odds with Iron Man, as in a storyline called “The Iron Age” where it was revealed that agents of Roxxon Oil killed Tony Stark’s parents. Roxxon has also regularly been at odds with Project: Pegasus regarding energy sources as the latter has been involved with alternative energy research that could hurt Roxxon’s oil profitability.
The central division of the Roxxon conglomerate is Roxxon Oil; subsidiaries include Metrobank and the Brand Corporation, a scientific research and development firm which has conducted many projects for the federal government. Brand is another for-profit company that has specialized in creating superhumans; while Brand is usually considered a Roxxon subsidiary, it has sometimes made its own decisions and acted independently.
Roxxon has its own army-like security task force, and has employed a number of special agents, many of whom it has given superhuman abilities.[/B]
[B]The Black Widow
The introduction of Black Widow aka Natasha Romanoff or “Natalie Rushman” as a S.H.I.E.L.D agent will definitely play a major part in the future. There have been rumors that Scarlett Johansson’s character will be in The Avengers film set to come out in 2012. But remember, that’s just a rumor.[/B]
In Iron Man 2 Nick Fury tells Tony Stark that he knew Howard Stark much better than Tony ever did, as Howard was one of the founding members of SHIELD. But when was SHIELD founded? And when did Fury join? Was he a young cadet or was he also one of the founding members in the movie universe? Considering that Howard Stark died about 20 years before the events of Iron Man we can assume that SHIELD started before the 80s, and the way Fury talks in the film makes it sound like he was there when Howard sent Tony to boarding school, which would have been some time in the late 70s.
The movie is leaving the door open for Nick Fury to be ageless. We know that Fury will appear in Captain America: The First Avenger, but sources say there are modern sequences that bookend the main WWII story, so it’s likely that Fury will appear there. The truth about Nick Fury probably won’t be revealed until The Avengers, which Samuel L Jackson has said will be ‘his movie.’[/B]
B - (1:14:18)[/B]
In the case that Tony is going through you will notice a comic book cover. It’s a First Edition Captain America from March 1941 also starting his sidekick Bucky.[/B]
[B]Map of Antarctica
Vibranium is a fictional metal that appears in the Marvel Universe. It is most commonly known as one of the materials used to construct Captain America’s shield.
In the feature film Iron Man 2, Tony Stark synthesizes a new element to take the place of the palladium that powers his armor. Although unnamed in the film itself, the movie’s novelization identifies the element as vibranium because it shares characteristics with uranium and has similar transgenic properties of vibranium. Its molecular structure is that of a triangular buckyball.[/B]
[B]Hypercube (Cosmic Cube)
The Cosmic Cube is one of the strangest and most enduring aspects of Captain America’s mythology. A containment unit for vast extra-dimensional energies, the Cosmic Cube gives its wielder almost unlimited control over reality.
The Red Skull has, time and again, tried to control the Cosmic Cube, and its limitless power has played into many, many classic Captain America stories - including The Winter Soldier arc, where it was revealed that Bucky, Cap’s long-thought dead sidekick from WWII, was actually a brainwashed Soviet super assassin.
The introduction of the Cosmic Cube - and the fact that the film connects it to Asgard (in the Marvel Universe Cosmic Cubes have been created by many civilizations) - seem to set up unique and large scale possibilities for The Avengers and whatever comes after. The possibilities, when one has a Cosmic Cube, are endless. [/B]
[B]Project Pegasus (Introduction of Prismatic Accelerator)
Project: PEGASUS (Potential Energy Group/Alternate Sources/United States) is an enormous research facility that is funded and operated by the United States Department of Energy. Founded several years ago, the Project was designed to investigate energy sources other than fossil fuels and other non-renewable resources. Although the existence and location of Project: PEGASUS is publicly known, the American public is unaware of the full extent of the Projectâ€™s facilities and activities. [/B]
[B]Captain Americaâ€™s shield is back (Project Pegasus - Defensive Armament Prototype)
I donâ€™t know if you remember in the first Iron Man film or not when we saw the Captain Americaâ€™s shield sitting on Tony Starkâ€™s work station in the background of one of the scenes. This was a huge deal for all of us comic book fans, and it was actually addressed in the sequel. It was absolutely hilarious how they did it, with Tony acting like the shield contained the secret to exactly what he needed to complete a project he was working on, then ended up just using the shield to help level out what he was working on by shoving the shield under it.[/B]
B - (1:45:48)[/B]
Oracle Communications is a real world company and sponsor of Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 2. They were so heavily involved with promoting the film that they created their own corresponding viral marketing campaign.
In the film itself, Oracle logos were spotted throughout the Stark Expo. The most prominent being the giant dome where the final battle between Iron Man, War Machine, Whiplash and the Hammer drones took place. Oracle’s CEO even had a cameo at the beginning of the movie, where he introduced himself and his company to Tony Stark.
In the Marvel Comics world, Prince Namor collected sunken treasures of Atlantis to finance his purchase of a corporation he renamed Oracle, Inc. Under the guise of an international businessman (even taking the surname McKenzie), he used Oracle to sponsor environmental care.[/B]
[B]The Incredible Hulk takes place during Iron Man 2
At the end of Iron Man 2 when Stark and Fury are at a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe-house talking about Tonyâ€™s future with S.H.I.E.L.D. there is a very short shot of a news report on a TV screen in the background. The news reporter is doing a live report from Culver University, which is exactly where the Hulk had his epic battle with General Ross and Blonsky. I believe this is the same report that we saw in The Incredible Hulk where some college kids had filmed parts of the battle. So right after Iron Man 2 ends is when Stark goes and meets up with General Ross in the Bar as a S.H.I.E.L.D. consultant.[/B]
The Avengers are a Marvel Comics supergroup made up of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America and others.[/B]

The first one is an easy one â€“ Iron Man. Both films take place in and around Los Angeles, plus this is his movie and heâ€™s the one currently being grilled. The map is probably meant to represent confirmed or suspected areas of superhuman involvement.
Location 2: USA, Southwest Region (New Mexico)
This could have been a hard one if you donâ€™t stick around for the credits. The circle itself looked closer to Texas, though with the knowledge gained post-credits, we can safely assume that this location is New Mexico,
indicating the area where Thorâ€™s hammer Mjolnir fell to Earth.
Location 3: USA, North Eastern Seaboard
The circles are pretty big and cover a wide area, but once you get to this area of the world in Super Hero terms, youâ€™re talking about New York City, which just so happens to be where the Hulk battled the Abomination.
Location 4: North Atlantic Ocean
Hero: Captain America
As any comic fan would guess, when youâ€™ve got a location in the frozen North Atlantic highlighted, itâ€™s talking about our frosty friend Steve Rogers who, after World War II, found himself frozen in a block of ice to be thawed out later.
Location 5: South Atlantic Ocean, off Coast of Chile
This is a strange one, since itâ€™s floating pretty much in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, pretty far from anything. This could translate into one of two things, one somewhat more plausible. First, it could be a crash
landing site or an entry site of something, similar to Thorâ€™s hammer. Maybe something crashed in the Ocean. The second explanation is perhaps more plausible, but a bit iffy none-the-less. It could be a possible location of Atlantis, the underwater kingdom ruled by the Namor, the Sub-Mariner. On one hand, this makes sense because Namor is a pretty big name and has ties to the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. The reason why it might not make sense is that there is no reason to believe Atlantis is located in that area and I always got the sense it
was closer to New York, considering Namor was always trying to get with Sue Storm who lived there.
Location 6: Central Europe
Villain: Red Skull
Being a relatively small continent, the target circle takes up almost all of Europe, but is pretty well centered on it, definitely excluding Spain, England, and Russia. Put your finger on the center of Europe and what do you find? Germany. Couple that with the Red Skull being announced as the villain in the Captain America movie, and we likely figure this circle is for him.
Hero: Black Panther
As far as I know, the Black Panther is really the only hero to actually live and operate in Africa, aside from Storm of the X-Men who spent some time there and in current continuities married Tâ€™Challa (the Black Panther),
though she still resides mostly in Virginia, as part of the X-Men. So this one is plainly Black Panther, who has ties to the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Captain America, as the material his shield is created from (vibranium) is found in a crashed meteor in the borders of Wakanda.
[B]Mjolinir Lands in New Mexico:
If you waited till after the credits rolled in Iron Man 2 then you got your first look at Thorâ€™s hammer Mjolinir. Throughout the film the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents were talking about problems in New Mexico. At one point Agent Coulson who is keeping an eye on Tony Stark get pulled away to deal with something in New Mexico. Turns out they found Thorâ€™s hammer. This means that the Thor story time line will take place about the same time as Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk.[/B]

Under the Deleted Scenes banner, scroll down until a book suddenly highlights.

Star Trek: The Original Series - Season 3
[B]Romulans or Klingons? (HD, 2 min.) â€“ On Disc 1, highlight and select the red menu button without a label.
The Bottle Show (D, 2 min.) â€“ Disc 2, highlight and select the red menu button without a label.
Birthday Shuttlecraft (D, 2 min.) â€“ Disc 3, highlight and select the red menu button without a label.
Flint’s Castle (D, 2 min.) â€“ Disc 4, highlight and select the red menu button without a label.[/B]
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Season One
Enter the archive section that houses the character models, concept art, …etc. Select an episode to view and before clicking on any other items, highlight the episode name, press left two times, so the cursor goes in what was a blank square (the opposite side of the close tab), you are treated to a two minute long featurette. The Voices of ‘Star Wars,’ featuring the voice actors screwing around, with Wood going absolutely crazy performing a mix of beasts and Battle Droid noises (mixed in with physical movements to match). Actors tease about the job, including how they originally record some voices that get altered.
Using the same method as above you are treated to a one minute slide show of sorts, with dramatic scoring, of concept art, rough animations, concept designs, and so on. A miniature montage of sorts.
Using the same method as above, Dave Filoni hosts an five minute animatic about the logistics of Ahsoka and Anakin flying, and the rationale behind focussing on Ahsoka during the ‘Battle Over Ryloth’ episode. The temp acting covering the dialogue for actors is incredibly aggravating, making even the bad voices in the show seem acceptable.[/B]
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - The Complete Season Two
[B]All of the Easter Eggs on this release are found through the Jedi Temple Archives. To access them, select an episode from the Holocron list, and in the screen that allows you to select 2D or 3D artwork, move your cursor to where the episode name is, and press left until you highlight the icon in the top left box of the screen. While you can change the episode name on this menu, there is not an Easter Egg for each episode, just one per disc.
Disc One contains the Ord Enisence Easter Egg (HD, 2 min). This feature discusses the Jedi found in the Holocron Heist episode, which is designed after one of the denizens of Jabba’s Palace, Pote Snitkin. With each and every species seemingly having a Jedi or Sith variation somewhere in the ‘Star Wars’ canon, it was only fitting that we get a Skrilling Jedi, even if for one episode. When the story shifts to Coruscant, designing buildings and scales to fit the size of the creature, but not so much on the obvious ‘Kong’ references.
Disc Two features the Jedi Library Easter Egg (HD, 1 min). It is so damn awesome. We see something that didn’t make it into the episode, a painting on the ceiling of the library, reminiscent of the great painters of Renaissance lore. A shame we didn’t see it in the episodes.
Disc Three contains the Malastare Easter Egg (HD, 2 min). It focusses on the architecture of the Dug planet, as well as some discussion on why the planet is important. Skippable, really.[/B]
Star Wars: The Complete Saga
Located on the second bonus disc, containing the archives for Episodes IV through VI. To find it from the main menu, click on Episode V, then go to the “Pursued by the Imperial Fleet” section. From there, go into “The Collection” and select the “Boba Fett Prototype Costume.” You’ll see a menu on the right side of the screen with the option “First Look.” When you choose that option, you’ll get a brief introduction and background on the special before it starts playing. Then just sit back and enjoy the weirdness.
Step Up 2 : The Streets
Includes four easter eggs. Press up while highlighting the play button on the main menu, press right while selecting the “Play All” option in the Deleted Scenes section, press right again while hovering over the “Through Fresh Eyes” featurette, and press down after highlighting the Robert Hoffman Prank. The assorted goodies aren’t exciting or substantial per se, but the fourth egg features freestyle dancing at a post-wrap party.
Paul Rudd Auditions Stormy Daniels (6 min., HD) â€“ On disc 2, highlight “Press Junket Meltdown” and press UP twice. Select the flying penis icon that appears in the upper right corner of the screen to watch a badly-staged prank involving Paul Rudd and porn star Stormy Daniels that plays like a sequel to the “My Dinner with Stormy” extra on the ‘40 Year-Old Virgin’ disc.

The Amityville Horror (2005)
Under “Special Features,” push the cursor to the right so that it moves into the middle of the screen, where little Jodie’s silhouette is seen on the window. A strange red symbol suddenly highlights. Upon selecting it, viewers are taken to two more options, called “Home Movies” (4 min) and “Scar Reel” (2 min). They’re fun short clips taken from the movie with added creepiness.
Highlight ‘Special Features’ and press Up 3 times. The baseball icon that appears will take you to a dumb clip of Jon Lovitz singing the National Anthem.

Select and hit Enter, and access a hidden trailer page called “The Summer of 1986.” Enjoy trailers for ‘The Fly,’ ‘Aliens’ and ‘Big Trouble in Little China.’
The Green Hornet
Select Special Features on the menu and then select Deleted Scenes. Once the submenu for Deleted Scenes comes up push the right arrow on your remote with the Play All feature highlighted. A green target will appear to the right of Play All, which provides a 30 second clip of Gondry pulling out the double-barreled gun and pretending to shoot someone.
The Godfather Collection (Coppola Restoration)
[B]On the fourth disc from the box set that contains all the supplements, select the â€˜Settingsâ€™ submenu.

Another hilarious hidden feature can be found on the same disc.

And there’s another one, which can be found in the ‘Filmmakers’ section on the â€˜2001 DVD Archiveâ€™ submenu. Go there and select ‘Mario Puzo’s’ biography. Once you get there, press the ‘Left’ arrow key on your remote control twice and a large dollar sign will appear. It gives you access to a short clip, in which Coppola asks the writer why he actually wrote ‘The Godfather.’ Puzo’s answer to it is quite revealing. [/B]
The Heart Break Kid 2007
From the Deleted Scenes menu, highlight the words “Play All” and press the right-arrow button. This highlights a hidden jellyfish icon that leads to a featurette about Peter Farrelly’s practical jokes.
Go to the Special Features section and highlight the trailers button. Press right one time and click on the bloody handprint that appears. What comes next may go down as one of the most underwhelming easter eggs of all time – it simply features Eamonn Bowles, the president of Magnolia Pictures giving his ten-second opinion of the film after a screening. Surprise! He loves the film his company paid to distribute.
The Italian Job
On the “Extras” submenu, highlight the top bonus feature option (the “Driving School” featurette), then click your remote’s top-left (northwest) diagonal button.

The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy - Extended Editions
[B]On the ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ disc, we get a three minute SD alternate version of the council of Elrond, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jack Black. This one has to be seen. It’s definitely not for children. It’s horribly crude, yet hilarious at times, especially the Frodo gag.
On the ‘The Two Towers’ disc, a three minute SD MTV movie award acceptance speech is shown, as Gollum won an award for best virtual performance (tough category, that). It’s pretty poor, really, but calling Dobby a %$@ing &^% is quite epic.
On the ‘The Return of the King’ disc, there is a nine minute SD interview between Monaghan and Wood, played off as a hoax of sorts on Wood. Monaghan doesn’t do a bad German, but the joke here is on us, not Wood, as it isn’t all that funny.
On the Appendices DVD discs, there is a symbol at the bottom of each page that is a not-so hidden link to the DVD credits.[/B]
The Man With No Name Trilogy
At the main menu selection screen, highlight the “PLAY” option and press the up arrow on the remote’s cursor. A revolver suddenly appears just above the banner floating at the bottom of the screen. When pressing enter, we find a brief 40-second clip of Eli Wallach sharing a memory of Sergio Leone directing a fellow cast member on acting angry.
The Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 1
Instead of pressing left and right in the selection menu, try pressing up when you highlight each individual short. There you’ll find three icons and three quick bonuses – a wireframe animatic of the “Luxo Jr” short, a look at various movement techniques developed by Pixar, and a lighting demo. Then access the Subtitles menu, press up on your remote, and click on the icon that appears. You’ll be treated to a 1986 short by Eben Ostby called “Beach Chair.”
For the upcoming Blu-ray “The Proposal”, the following easter egg is how visual effects created the atmosphere of Sitka, Alaska despite shooting in Massachusetts (1:54).
[B]This movie from Universal contains 6 Eggs. The first five can be found through the “Scene Access” submenu by selecting a specific scene number, then clicking the “Right” navigation arrow on your remote two times:

The Slammin’ Salmon
Go to the Special Features tab, highlight theatrical trailer, press the down button, and a fish will appear (one can also press the up button when Hellish Kitchen is selected to get to the fish). Click it, and you’re treated to a brief clip of the Lizards introducing a film, in a very unfunny fashion.
The Simpsons Movie
[B]The first set of eggs can be found on the disc’s pop-up menu. Once you’ve activated it, highlight the first option on the left, which is “Play Movie.” Then hit down on your remote, and the command will underline. Hit enter, and be treated to the first of three “Visual Developments” vignettes, each for a different character – Lisa’s Boyfriend, Russ Cargill and the Multi-Eyed Fish. You can accessing the remaining vignettes by hitting the next two options on the pop-up menu (“Audio Setup” and “Special Features”). Highlight each, then hit left on your remote. Once the option is underlined, hit enter, and be taken to the respective vignette.
The last egg can be activated by going to the “Audio Setup” submenu, From there, select the “English DTS 5.1” option, but don’t press enter. Instead, press up, and a donut icon will appear. Highlight it, then press enter to enjoy a ‘Simpsons’ spoof of the THX trailer.[/B]
The Simpsons - Season 13
[B]- The Village Voice Cover (Disc 1) â€“ In the Menu press the right directional button on your remote after you get to Extras and a tiny white circle will appear. Select it and you are taken to a cover of The Village Voice featuring Homer.
TV Guide Article (Disc 2) â€“ Do the same thing as disc one, select the tiny white circle and it will take you to a TV Guide article talking about the greatest shows of all time.
Special Thanks (Disc 3) â€“ Do the same thing you have done on both discs and the tiny white circle will appear next to extras again. When selected this will take you to a special thanks page that gives out special thanks to some people and companies.[/B]
The X-Files: I Want To Believe
[B]Select the “X” logo in the Audio menu to find a bizarre animated promo for the movie.
In the Theatrical Version’s Special Features menu, there’s an extra option for an isolated score in Dolby Digital 5.1.[/B]
There Will Be Blood
Well this is par say not an easter egg that is on the disc itself, Paramount has released what you could call easter egg cover art. These are rare to find, hold the cover up to the light you will see one cover, flip it around and you will see another.
THX 1138: Director’s Cut
The Easter egg is easy to find, on the same menu as the other extras, and it features Matthew Robbinsâ€™ for “Breakout,” which was the inspiration for Lucas’s student film.
From the main menu, if you select the extras tab, then press down twice to highlight the Crafting Lara Croft extra, pressing left will highlight a series of three symbols that weren’t there before (pressing left on the other two extras above this one do not highlight it). This hidden feature is a two minute SD extra covering Jon Voigt and his daughter Jolie discussing working together on the film.
Toy Story 3
[B]1. Hometown Map
Behind Andy’s bed is a map of the world marked with pushpins. Those pushpins each correspond to the hometowns of the film’s production team.
- Cutting Blvd Sign
Stealing street signs may be more of a Sid Phillips move, but we’ll forgive Andy for this one; W. Cutting Blvd. is the street where Pixar was originally located in Richmond, CA.
- Finn McMissile
Check out the car poster by Andy’s bed. That’s a hint at a new character, Finn McMissile, who will debut in Cars 2. A full design for the character was shown off at last year’s D23, showing Finn as a James Bond-esque Aston Martin.
Since the first Toy Story, Andy’s mom has had the license plate A113, a reference to an animation room at CalArts. The number pops up across the animation world as an in-joke in dozens of films and television series, everything from The Iron Giant to “The Simpsons.” In Toy Story 3, the plate is surrounded by a frame that says “Tiger Pride,” a reference to director Lee Unkrich’s hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and his high school mascot.
Courtesy of Studio Ghibli, Totoro himself makes an appearance in the form of one of Bonnie’s plush toys.
- Buy n Large
Buzz Lightyear doesn’t run on just any old brand of batteries! Those are Buy n Large brand, straight from WALLâ€¢E.
The train engine in the opening sequence has a big 95 on the front, a reference to the year that the first Toy Story was released and the racing number of Cars’ Lightning McQueen.
- Lightning McQueen Shirt
Speaking of Lightning McQueen, it looks like this Sunnyside Day Care kid happens to be a fan.
- Toy Characters
Look for a number of toy variations on other Pixar characters. Check out Boo and Mike from Monsters, Inc. and a pretty nifty looking wooden Lightning McQueen.
- Newt Crossing
Newt was scheduled to be Pixar’s 2012 summer release but has since been taken off the schedule and it is unknown whether the story will ever see the light of day. Since it seems that Andy is a fan, let’s hope it gets back on track.
- Nemo Sticker
Check out the sticker at the bottom of Andy’s toy chest for a very familiar clownfish.
- Before There Was Lotso
There are even Toy Story 3 Easter Eggs in other Pixar films! Not only did Lotso make his first appearance in Up, but a very early version of the toy actually appeared in the first Toy Story film fifteen years earlier.
- Mr. Ray and a Tractor
Look who CS poster Gracie spotted on the toy shelf! It’s Mr. Ray, Nemo’s singing stingray teacher. In the same shot, Goodridge noticed a tractor from Cars.
- Luxo Jr.'s Ball
Pixarâ€™s 1986 short film Luxo, Jr, which is where the hopping lamp in the animation studioâ€™s logo also comes from, also featured a small yellow ball with a blue ring and red stars. This ball appears in a lot of the Pixar films. One of the appearances in Toy Story 3 is on a tile outside of Sunnyside Daycare
- Tin Toys
These scared fellows in the corner are the some of the same terrified toys that appeared in Pixar’s early short, Tin Toy
- More (Revolting) Batteries
We already saw the Buy n Large brand batteries, but here’s another brand: Revolting. That’s the same imaginary company that sponsored Chick Hicks (voiced by Toy Story 3’s own Michael Keaton) in Cars.
Velocistar237 is more than just a dinosaur toy. He’s also a fan of The Shining, just like Toy Story 3 director Lee Unkrich, who lists it as his favorite film. The numbers 237 are famously the numbers of the hotel room in the film.
- Ellie and Carl
It looks like Andy is pen pals with Carl and Ellie Fredricksen from Up. It’s hard to spot, but /Film caught this postcard on Andy’s post-it board.
Appropriately named reader Flick spotted a toy version of Flick from A Bug’s Life - he can be seen jumping away just as the line of children get ready to return to Sunnyside from recess.
- Wally B
A patch on Bonnie’s backpack is of Wally B. from the early Pixar short The Adventures of Andre and Wally B.
During the scene at Sunnyside where Woody climbs into the ceiling, the letters on the wall spell out ATTA, the name of Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character in A Bug’s Life
- Grown-Up Sid
Making a cameo appearance is a grown-up Sid Phillips, the villain from the first Toy Story. You can recognize him from his trademark skull t-shirt.
- More Tiger Pride
Poster Jennifer spotted another reference to Unkrich’s high-school mascot: Andy has a Tigers sticker on the chest in his room.
- The Six Million Dollar Man
While it may not be a toy, per se, Unkrich points out on the film’s commentary track that one his favorite childhood items was his Six Million Dollar Man lunchbox. Look for it making a cameo appearance as the metal object that Buzz Lightyear grabs onto in the garbage dump.
- Room 237
Another nod to The Shining, Sid’s garbage truck features a license plate that references Room 237.
- Pixar University
Andy’s room features a pendant with the letters “P.U.”, acknowledging the real-life education and development program, “Pixar University”.
- Pizza Planet
Making another Pixar film cameo is the Pizza Planet truck from the first Toy Story. This one is famous for its distinctive “YO” on the back.
- Luxo, Jr.
Another Pixar regular, Luxo Jr. can be seen (in red) atop Andy’s desk.
Just where is Andy going to college anyway? Judging from his application letter, it’s not far from Pixar’s headquarters in Emeryville.
- The Evil Dead
Another horror movie nod, Unkrich notes on the commentary that this shot is inspired by a Sam Raimi shot in The Evil Dead when Ash gets pulled into the cellar.[/B]
[B]The first (and only) egg on disc one is located after the film’s end credits. Wait for the film to finish, and you’ll be taken to a special hidden menu. Here, you can watch Teaser Trailer #1 for ‘Transformers’ (as mentioned above), as well as “Autobots Rollout,” a short music video-like montage of footage from the film, and promoting the website of the same name.
The remaining eggs are all on disc two:
Go to the main menu. Highlight the “More Than Meets the Eye” menu, but don’t press “Enter” on your remote. Instead, click “Up,” and an icon of Optimus Prime will appear. Click enter, and watch a short clip on the casting of the charater of Mojo.
Return to the main menu, and again select and click “More Than Meets the Eye.” Once the submenu pops up, select “Theatrical Trailer 4” (again, don’t hit “Enter”). Press “Right” on your remote, and a Ratchet icon will appear. Hit “Enter,” and watch a blooper from one of the deleted scenes, featuring an unfortunate extra who’s costume gets an unexpected “lift.”
Back to the main menu, select the “Their War” section and press “Enter.” Then highlight the “Inside the Allspark,” and click “Right” instead of hitting “Enter.” A Frenzy icon appears, which takes you to another short blooper, with Michael Bay getting an unexpected visit from Megatron while on the set.
The last egg can be found by going back to the main menu, and returning to the “Our World” section. From there, highlight the “I Fight Giant Robots” section and click “Right.” A Bumblebee icon will appear, which features a mock commercial for a Michael Bay Transformers toy.
Note that although it is not one of Paramount’s five official eggs with actual bonus content, you can access the disc’s hidden production credits. Go to the main menu and highlight the “Our World” section. Click “Left,” and a Megatron icon will appear. Hit “Enter” to read the credits.[/B]
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
4 Eggs Total
[B]Go to about 2 hours and 7 minutes and 30 sec and you will soon notice a robot who will shoot around, do a tuck-and-roll and die. The interesting part, however, is that if you look at its arm right after it dies, you will notice the number T-1000. This was put in because Michael Bay (the director) felt that the new Terminator movie was copying Transformers (which is why it dies).
If you pause the movie around 2 Hours 17 min and 53 sec R2D2 makes a cameo appearance as part of the flying debris.[/B]
2 Eggs On Disc 2
[B]1. Blooper (HD, 1 min.) â€“ On disc 2, go to "The Human Factor," then highlight "Domestic Destruction." Press RIGHT to unveil a hidden Decepticon logo which contains footage of Josh Duhamel almost ruining the movie's biggest explosion.[/B]
2. More Dog Humping (HD, 1 min.) â€“ Go to “Deconstructing Visual Bayhem,” then highlight “Jackhammer Fight.” Press Right to reveal a hidden Autobot logo that effectively summarizes Michael Bay’s sophisticated sense of humor.
9 Easter Eggs
[B]Gain access to the nine hidden extras from the Space Paranoids arcade game screen, which appears after viewing The Next Day bonus featurette extending the story of what happens soon after the events of TRON:LEGACY. When the featurette ends, the Space Paranoids top score screen appears, prompting you to enter initials. While seemingly obvious entries like CLU or FLN yield failed results, clever players will soon discover the correct codes to access each of the nine Easter Eggs.
EASTER EGG 1 - DILLINGER CHAT (DJR)
The first Easter Egg sets up what will likely be the main antagonists in a TRON 3 story, namely Edward Dillinger Jr. and his father Ed Sr. who engage in a secret chat hinting at their collusion to create problems for ENCOM’s new CEO Alan Bradley and the emergence of Sam Flynn. Director Joseph Kosinski confirmed this TRON 3 plot potential in our recent exclusive interview with him. Bradley’s decision to keep the younger Dillinger on the ENCOM board because “he earned his place” may cost Flynn and the company if the Dillingers take their revenge for Kevin Flynn sending Ed to prison after the events of TRON in 1982. While Flynn may have destroyed the MCP, it’s clear Ed Dillinger’s desire for payback has not yet reached the end of line. Watch FilmEdge’s inteview with TRON:LEGACY director Joseph Kosinski who discusses possible plot points with the Dillingers in TRON 3.
EASTER EGG 2 - ALAN BRADLEY TAPES (CEO)
The second hidden feature is a video/audio montage shot within the secret FlynnLives archives of the hacker (and TRON:LEGACY ARG hero) Zack Attack, whose identity is finally revealed in The Next Day featurette. Audio tapes of Alan Bradley’s previous conversations on the future of ENCOM reveal his offer to step in as CEO of ENCOM after Kevin Flynn’s 1989 disappearance, if only for the sake of Kevin’s young son Sam Flynn to preserve his father’s legacy in the company. In effect, this is prequel bonus material which fits into the expositional recap of events between Sam’s childhood and his adult years seen in TRON:LEGACY.
EASTER EGG 3 - ALAN BRADLEY CEO INTERVIEW (MKT)
Following up on the taped conversations, this third Easter Egg shows archival video of Alan Bradley’s interview as new ENCOM CEO on The Market, a business channel stock market news program. Alan lays out his plan and promise to guide ENCOM in a new direction as a software leader in the world. Of course, fans and viewers of TRON:LEGACY know it didn’t quite work out that way as the ENCOM board, including Ed Dillinger Jr., derailed Kevin Flynn’s spirit of creative and technical philanthropic research funded by game and software innovation, instead driving the corporation forward as a monolithic profit center.
EASTER EGG 4 - SAM FLYNN DROPS IN ON ENCOM PRESS CONFERENCE (SAM)
In the world of TRON:LEGACY, the fourth Easter Eggs recaps the 2010 ENCOM press conference announcing the return of their flagship video game Space Paranoids, debuting as an online browser-based simulator game. Movie fans will recognize this as the TRON:LEGACY ARG event from last year’s WonderCon in San Francisco, in which FlynnLives.com ARG players met to infiltrate ENCOM’s conference and demand that Kevin Flynn’s legacy return to the company. Video shot from the audience intercuts with night-vision shots of Sam Flynn preparing his death-defying parachute jump from a helicopter down to the event below â€” a dangerous stunt which almost didn’t happen due to high winds in the Bay Area that night.
EASTER EGG 5 - FLYNN LIVES GUERILLA VIDEO TAGGING ENCOM HEADQUARTERS (TAG)
The FlynnLives movement plays a key role in the return of Sam Flynn and the return of Alan Bradley as ENCOM CEO in the events of TRON:LEGACY, just as the FlynnLives.com viral campaign contributed to the film’s box office success with fans around the world. The fifth Easter Egg extra shows three masked members of the Flynn Lives movement tag a freight entrance at ENCOM headquarters.
EASTER EGG 6 - FLYNN LIVES RECRUITING VIDEO (FLV)
Archival news film and interviews with ENCOM employees circa 1989, compiled by Zack Attack, stoke conspiracy theories about the disappearance of Kevin Flynn and a subsequent cover-up by the ENCOM board, resulting in this short vintage recruiting video for the early Flynn Lives movement. The San Diego mailing address was also a link to Disney’s ARG viral campaign promoting TRON:LEGACY in conjunction with that city’s Comic-Con International event where participants saw the first trailers and scenes from the film.
EASTER EGG 7 - KEVIN FLYNN AND THE DIGITAL FRONTIER (DFB)
A vintage commercial for Kevin Flynn’s book The Digital Frontier hints at the technological, evolutionary discoveries he was making while in the virtual world of Tron before he disappeared from our world, trapped in that digital domain from 1989 until the 2010 events seen in TRON:LEGACY.
EASTER EGG 8 - FLYNN LIVES ARG AND THE RE-OPENING OF FLYNN’S ARCADE (GAM)
With secret funding from Alan Bradley, the Flynn Lives movement led by Zack Attack enlisted TRON:LEGACY fans from around the world to meet in San Diego during the summer of 2010 and follow a trail of clues hoping to reveal the whereabouts of Kevin Flynn. Video footage shows ARG players decoding clues on streetside FLYNN LIVES posters with blacklights, finally leading them to the re-opening of Flynn’s Arcade. Held in conjunction with that summer’s Comic-Con event, the Arcade hosted the stars of the film Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde and Garrett Hedlund as well as revealing a lifesize prop of a new Light Cycle.
EASTER EGG 9 - VINTAGE TV COMMERCIAL FOR SPACE PARANOIDS HOME VIDEO GAME (SPC)
The ninth and final Easter Egg is literally a blast: it’s a vintage TV ad for ENCOM’s iconic video game Space Paranoids, loading Recognizers and tanks into home game consoles. A young boy and his sister geek out preparing to shoot down enemies with their Atari 2600 console and controllers in this hyped-up television commercial from the golden days of ENCOM games.[/B]
U2 360 AT THE ROSE BOWL (Not 100% confirmed)
Select â€˜Main Menuâ€™, then when â€˜3:32â€™ appears within the bottom left hand corner of the screen, before it changes to â€˜3:33â€™, press â€˜4â€™ on your remote and the bonus clip starts playing.
In the extras if you click on the manhole cover before the theatrical trailer, you’re treated to an outtake of Erik Per Sullivan (Malcom in the Middle) who plays the son, as he falls asleep in the backseat of the car for real and can’t get up.
The Egg (HD, 1:57) If you hit the ‘left’ button on your remote at the main menu of Disc 1, you will see an absolutely fascinating mini-documentary called, appropriately, ‘The Egg.’ It’s all about Muntz and his original motivation for tracking Kevin - that Kevin’s eggs would provide him with a serum for eternal youthfulness. They show storyboards of a great scene where Carl and Russell meet Muntz and Muntz is still 30 years old. They said they cut it because it didn’t match, thematically, with Carl’s journey.
