PK is a hindi slang. It expands as 'Pea kay' and it means being drunk. Whenever Amir Khan's character talks to the general people, they feel like his statements and questions are absurd and idiotic. So they ask him whether he is drunk (PK), and hence he gets this name.

He's talking about "Market Panic". If a lot of people start dumping stock, other brokers assume someone has some inside knowledge and they will start dumping stock too. Works the same way in reverse; if a lot of people start buying, others will buy too assuming someone knows something. In those first few cases, they're the "smoke". Once it takes off, ...

Never take comic book deaths seriously and since this movie is based on comics they can do the same. Loki, Phil Coulson and Bucky all came back from death, so why not Quicksilver? The Inhumans film is coming and Quicksilver has a big relationship with them, (from having an Inhuman wife and child and even being member of them too), so he might get reused ...

The following is just a first start, not so much based on proper quotes from the responsible film-makers rather than common sense and the respective Wikipedia article on the movie. First and foremost the visual style of a movie is to a large degree up to its director and Zack Snyder has repeatedly shown his affinity towards darker and gloomier color tones, ...

IMO, Lou seemed to flip when Rick asked for half the reward. Up until that point, Lou was making lots of money and enjoying having a partner with no scruples. What Rick basically did at that moment was held Lou's livelihood at ransom. Lou knew he needed a second cameraman for the job, but so did Rick. Rick knew that whatever he asked for, Lou would have ...

Given the kind of person that Lou's character was, he never gave a damn about his partner. Whether or not Rick had asked him for a raise, Lou would have sacrificed Rick anytime if a situation ever came up where Lou could benefit from his death. Such kind of person, was Lou. Secondly, what really infuriated Lou was not Rick asking for a raise or asking for a ...

This event represents Stephen Hawking becoming a Companion of Honour. The Guardian film review shed some light into this event and why the two are together: Hawking was made a Companion of Honour in 1989, but that actually happened before the couple separated. In other words, the historical reality is that Hawking was made Companion of Honour, and ...

Stephen asked her to come along. When you see Jane and Jonathan together in their home towards the end of the film, Jonathan hands her a letter noting it's from Stephen, and after reading it you can hear Jane quietly exclaim, "Oh, my!" This makes it pretty clear that the letter is from Stephen himself, he's informing her of his impending knighthood, and has ...

Now first and foremost, the Tales of the Black Freighter were actually part of the comic source material. So including them in the movie adapation is a natural consequence for a movie production that strived to provide a very accurate reproduction of its source material (but ultimately had to cut such on first sight rather marginal things for a reasonable ...

Now first of all, we have to take a look at the functionality of the costume (or rather suit), which obviously is the creation of a genius scientist and inventor. In fact Iron Man is pretty much the Marvel equivalent of Batman (though, less brooding and more self-centered, and with a war trauma as incentive instead of the loss of his parents), whose strength ...

The issue of the upside-down flag has been answered elsewhere, so to expand Shiz Z.'s answer on the Lincoln Memorial reference, I would say that the blood in Underwood's hand suggests that he's a ruthless, maybe violent character. He's in the place of a former United States president, so he probably wants to be the president himself. Lincoln symbolizes (as ...

"Was there ever any clarification on the point of this shot from someone involved with the movie (as opposed to pure guessing in Wikipedia)? Was Samedi merely not killed by snakes, or were the creators intentionally showing him to be immortal/supernatural?" You could ask Roger Moore he's got a website where you can ask him questions. Tom Mankiewicz, Cubby ...
