10 Films That Are Surprisingly Based on True Stories

There are a lot of great films that have been made that are based on true stories. We see it all the time — the studios almost always love to advertise when films as being based on actual events. It makes seeing the film even more appealing, especially when the story it tells seems absolutely crazy. The saying of "sometimes truth is stranger than fiction" is so true.

Screen Rant has released a new video that gives us a list of movies that "You Won't Believe Are Based on REAL Stories." Some of the movies that are included on the list are Nacho Libre, Indiana Jones, A Nightmare On Elm Street, The Hunt for Red October, Star Wars, and The Shining.

When a story unfolds in the real world that seems like a movie come to life, Hollywood studios don't waste time in adapting it. But not every movie based on a true story is clearly advertised as one, which means some stories that seem too strange, too hard to believe, or just too well-hidden to be based on fact slip by audiences. Let us know if we missed any in the comments below! Here are Screen Rant's 10 Movies You Won't Believe Are Based On Real Stories.
