The Machinist

Trivia: When Trevor is following Ivan through the tunnel, he reads the number plate out as 743 CRN on the red Firebird. When the shot changes to Trevor's pickup, the number plate reads NRC 347. Could this be a clue to a mirror image twist?

Trivia: Peppered throughout this film, especially in the suspense scenes, is Bernard Hermann's music for the film "Psycho."

The Machinist trivia picture

Trivia: Christian Bale dropped approximately 60 pounds for the role, going from 180 to 120, by eating a diet of one can of tuna and an apple a day for months. This is the most weight ever lost by an actor for a film role. Within 6 months of this film he then put on 100 pounds to play Batman in Batman Begins. He actually gained so much weight he was too big for the batsuit and had to drop 20lb for filming.

Revealing mistake: After Trevor is hit by the VW Bug, the arm he lands on disappears partially into the street, making the CGI obvious.
