Trivia: Most of the secondary cast and extras were people who actually fled Europe to America during Nazi rule. When Laszlo orders the band to play "La Marseillaise," it was very emotional for the cast who sang along and their reactions were very much their true feelings at the time.
Trivia: After 13 years and 26 films, this is the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to receive a "rotten" rating from Rotten Tomatoes upon release. This is somewhat ironic given that there were reports that Marvel considered it the best film they had made yet, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige felt it could be a nominee for Best Picture at the Oscars, particularly as its director Chloé Zhao had recently won the Best Director Oscar for Nomadland, which also won Best Picture.
Trivia: This is the first non-English language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Trivia: The wonderful soundtrack to this movie topped the US Billboard charts and won the academy award too.
Trivia: Near the end of the film in the locker room prior to the championship game, Coach Dale makes reference to the players on the other team whose names are written on a chalkboard. If you look closely at the list of names, you'll see that they are the last names of the actors that portray the Hickory players (Poole, Schenk, Boyle, etc).
Trivia: In the scene where Renee Zellwegger and Astrid are watching Renee's film, that's an actual clip from one of Renee's first movies; "Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation."
