Nothing beats the thrill of watching a brilliant movie for the first time. But you can come close to recapturing that magic if you’re willing to watch that familiar film from a different perspective.

Many movies leave unanswered questions – and the occasional gaping plot hole – and it’s up to the audience to fill in the blanks. Often, the movie theories that fans come up with to explain a weak plot point or curious bit of character development are more imaginative than the filmmakers themselves claim to have intended. Nevertheless, these theories are based on hints – however subtle – that keen audiences have picked up on, viewing after viewing.

Check out these mind-blowing movie theories, and get ready to re-watch your favourite flicks with fresh eyes.
