The first thing I should point out, is that movies are almost Never shot in chronological order, or in other words, in sequence of the events as they would unfold or "script order." This is pretty common knowledge, but don't beat yourself up if you didn't know already. For Dolly Parton's first motion picture (Nine to Five), she memorized the entire script, including the other characters' lines. Apparently, after letting on that she thought movies were filmed in chronological order, co-star Lily Tomlin burst out laughing.
Movies are shot out of sequence for a number of reasons. Among these reasons are; renting out locations or studio space, lighting, weather conditions, and most importantly, the availability of an actor. All of these basically boil down to time and money.

Charlize Theron and her son Jackson
Charlize Theron made headlines on Monday when she was spotted sporting a shaved head for her role in "Mad Max: Fury Road." The blond Oscar-winner might have been trying to hide the look under a fedora, but it was clear that her locks had been handed their pink slip.
The haircut might have come as a surprise to fans of the "Snow White and the Huntsman" star, but she certainly teased it in a recent discussion about the flick. "It's been three years: It's time to skin this cat already!" Theron said last month during a roundtable interview. "I'm very excited about it."
