New this month Trivia: The "old gangster movie" that's on the TV in Harry's apartment is the fictional movie "Angels with Filthy Souls," which was seen in the movie "Home Alone." The director wanted a detective movie for the scene, and said: "We needed something and I hadn’t figured out what I was going to put on that TV yet...Just as a laugh, we got the movie that they shot for Home Alone off of YouTube...We could never beat it!"TedStixon
Trivia: Marks the fourth "Ring/Ringu" film to be directed by original "Ringu" director Hideo Nakata. Nakata had previously directed the original Japanese film "Ringu" in 1998 and its sequel "Ringu 2" in 1999. He also directed the film "The Ring Two" in the American remake series. This will be the first Japanese "Ringu" film he has directed in 20 years.TedStixon
Trivia: Original "Hellboy" film series director Guillermo del Toro tried for nearly ten years to get a third film made in the series. However, due to a variety of circumstances, including budgetary concerns, his original vision for the third film was unable to be made. This movie was then written by series creator Mike Mignola and writer Andrew Crosby, with the intention of following on from the first two films. However, del Toro and original star Ron Perlman declined to be involved, feeling they should not make the film as it wouldn't pay off the storylines set up by the first two movies. Mignola and the producers then decided that rather than trying to make a direct sequel to the first two films without del Toro and Perlman, it should be rewritten to be a stand-alone reboot. References to the other films (and certain characters like Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman) were removed, and replaced with new concepts to set it apart from what came before.
New this week Trivia: Somewhat ironically, the actor who plays "The Elder," the man who sits above the high table, is younger than most of the other actors in the film. He's about 10 years younger than Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Jerome Flynn, about twenty years younger than Anjelica Huston and about thirty years younger than Ian McShane.TedStixon
Trivia: Spoilers. In the end, Dr. Butler and his wife Stephanie are revealed to be the killers. They were actually the killers in the original script for the first film, but the ending was changed several times until the final version seen in theaters with Lori being the killer. The original idea was recycled into this film, since the dimension-hopping angle of the story allowed the presence of a new version of the killer.TedStixon
