Trivia Round-Up: August 2016

Autumn is nearly here, guys. I'm already eyeing up the comfy looking cardigans in Primark and looking forward to all the spice-scented candles I'm going to burn. Also, blockbuster season is over! What a summer it's been. Dare I say it, 2016 has been the first year that I've watched all the big releases as they've come out. Oh pants, except for Finding Dory. There's always next year.

Anyway, as always, the end of the month brings a fun little Trivia post for all the movies we've reviewed during that month. Here we go!

In a February 2016 interview with NPR, Kim Barker, who wrote "The Taliban Shuffle", the book that was the basis for this movie, said Tina Fey first became interested in the memoir when Michi Kakutani reviewed the book for the New York Times. Kakutani said Barker "depicts herself as a sort of Tina Fey character."
I'd wondered why Tina Fey took on such a serious role, and then I read this. Perfect!

Melissa McCarthy's real-life daughter Vivian Falcone plays 10-year old Michelle.

Director/co-writer Baumbach shot the movie in black and white to 'boil it down to its barest bones' and create an immediate "history" and "a kind of instant nostalgia.'
Love this so much, it would have felt completely different were it shot in colour.

In May 2016, Warner Bros. announced that Margot Robbie would reprise her role as Harley Quinn in an upcoming Untitled Harley Quinn Project, which she would also produce. Not much has been revealed about the project, but it is rumored to be focused on the female heroes and villains of the DC Universe.
May not technically be trivia but it does make me happy!!

Based on the novel Il Bambino Indaco (The Indigo Child) by Marco Franzoso.

Circle was filmed in Los Angeles in just over 10 days, shooting at the unusually fast rate of 11-13 pages a day.

The toast Kirk makes to absent friends is immediately followed by a shot on Anton Yelchin, who tragically passed away on June 19, 2016.
Ugh, there's so much trivia for this movie, but this little one confirmed my thoughts. :(

The house is the same one used in the Tin Man miniseries.
Sorry, this is literally all I can find!

The third film to be released by A24 films to feature Oscar Issac. The first one was A Most Violent Year (2014) and Ex Machina (2015).
Argh! Both of these were 100x better than Mojave.

Dwayne Johnson is one foot one inch taller than Kevin Hart and weighs over one hundred pounds more.
Just one of the many reasons these guys are so funny together!

The Fundamentals of Caring (2016)
The book's title is "The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving". They made it shorter for the film adaptation.
Well thank goodness for that, it's a mouthful enough already!

When Eli threatens Drew with a knife, the knife point touches Drew's chin in one camera angle, but in another the tip is many inches away from his face.
There is literally no trivia for this film so had to go with a goof!

In the movie Kelly says she is twice Cal's age, but in real life Juliet is 41 yrs old and Jonny is 27 yrs old.
This is the only piece of trivia for this film

Director Drake Doremus envisioned Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart as the leads, but only together and if either one of them were unable to do the film, neither would be in it.

First Bourne film to not have the franchise's trademark title format of The Bourne ____. This film is instead called Jason Bourne rather than its originally rumored title The Bourne Betrayal.
Aw, I quite like that title.
