You know the drill by now, don't you? Here's a list of trivia snippets Jenna and I found for the films we reviewed this September.
This is the third movie that pairs Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, High Crimes and Kiss the Girls being their previous collaborations.
Originally, Loki wasn't going to be in this movie (WTF!!) but after the popularity of the character in Avengers Assemble, the script was re-written to include him - thank god for that!!
Mark Wahlberg did 90% of his own stunts. (surprisingly there was limited interesting trivia for this film so that's all you're getting!)
On the March 21st edition of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, David Schwimmer discussed the scene between Hank Azaria and Simon Pegg that takes place in the locker room. Generally, if males have to be nude for a scene, they will use a nude (flesh)-colored pouch to cover themselves. However, for some reason, the pouch wouldn't stay put and Azaria ultimately decided to forgo wearing it - but told Schwimmer not to say anything to Pegg. The reaction of shock we see from Simon Pegg when Azaria drops his towel is genuine.
CAMEO SPOILER: In the scene were Bruce and Drew are dancing in the parking lot a car beeps to pass by and in the car is Simon Pegg.
The film was shot in the 2-perf Techniscope format to provide a grainy image reminiscent of older horror films and to save money on film stock and processing. Despite this, "Filmed in Panavision" is listed in the end credits.
Jon Favreau did all his own cooking in the food truck after training with food truck chef Ray Choi who said "he really became part of it"
Kate Winslet and Josh Brolin both agreed to do this film but Brolin had to wait over a year for Winslet to be able to start work on it.
