Movie Trivia - I

Well.. other than watching movies, I am much interested in know the facts and information about a movie, its production, behind the screen, etc.. Here it is. Some of the such trivia of Hollywood movies, which I have come across.

In Stanley Kubrick's visually enchanting movie 2001 A Space Odyssey, aside from the film's music, no sound is heard in the space sequences. This is because technically in space, there is no sound.
One of the reasons why Francis Ford Coppola finally agreed to direct the film The Godfather was to settle his debt to Warner Brothers production house.

The total footage shot for 2001 – A space odyssey was some 200 times the final length of the film.

The Pussy Wagon which Uma Thurman drives in the movie Kill Bill is actually its director Quentin Tarantino's car.

For the movie Apocalypse Now, Francis Ford Coppola shot nearly 200 hours of footage, but the final run time was 153 minutes.

While filming Eastern Promises, one day after shooting, Viggo Mortensen, lead actor of the film, went to a pub without washing off his tattoos or even changing out of his costume. People in the pub became very frightened of him, assuming he was a real member of Vory v Zakone, the crime organization which is portrayed in the movie.

The Dark Knight is the first Batman feature film that doesn't have the word "Batman" in its title.

Rose says "Jack" 80 times in Titanic, whereas Jack says “Rose” 50 times.   
In The Dark Knight, the Joker's distinctive tongue flip grew out of Heath Ledger's own habit of doing that.
