The set has gotten more than a million views on Imgur since the weekend.
James Cameron, Ridley Scott, and Christopher Nolan are just as much filmmakers as they are technology mavens, using high-definition cameras and sophisticated editing tools to make big-budget films that blur the line between reality and fantasy.

That’s what happened Sunday afternoon after Reddit user Mostan posted 13 movie-inspired GIFs on the social news site. The GIFs feature some of the best moments in movie history, including the scene from Ghostbusters when Bill Murray and the guys capture a green ghost at the Sedgewick Hotel.
