Trivia for cinema and rental titles
New this month Trivia: Cary Fukunaga, whom is perhaps best known as a director on the series "True Detective" and for his works on films like "Jane Eyre", was originally contracted to write and direct the film. He eventually left the project after creative clashes with the studio, as he wanted to make a more unconventional film and executives feared his vision would not sit well with mainstream audiences. Fukunaga is still credited in the final film as a co-writer, however as many scenes from his version of the script were preserved in the final film.
Trivia: At one point, Jenny grabs a large book and hits a man over the head with it during a scuffle. She actually hits him with a book that is modeled to look similar to the "Book of the Dead" from the 1999 "Mummy" film, and even includes the star-shaped key-hole cover. A cute "blink-and-you'll-miss-it" inside-joke thrown in as a nod to the previous "Mummy" franchise.
