Question: How exactly did Peter Jackson get the rights to this series? He is obviously a talented director but, and this is no offence intended, his previous credits are basically limited to relatively small-time comedy horror movies. To go from that to producing the first live action movie adaptations of what is perhaps the most famous book series in the world seems a bit odd, especially given how little Hollywood likes to take risks nowadays.Gary O'Reilly
Question: When unknown helicopter is heading for INTREPID, in the very first few frames of the pan of New York City's skyline, there are two tall building to the left edge of the picture. Not being from NYC and knowing nothing about its real estate, it looks a little like the Twin Towers but that's impossible not only because they don't exist any more but also, those two buildings are in the wrong place. I am curious as to what those two buildings are.Sheri Hartman
Question: After Alex finds his father and is driving back home, we see a scene from the hospital, where Lara (or another nurse?) is talking to Alex's mother and telling her that the Berlin Wall collapsed, and that Germany is united. But later, Alex's mother acts like she's unaware of this, and Alex himself also states that she never knew the truth. Why?
Question: Does anyone know what the prayer - "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti" - the Saints say just before they kill translates into? I would really like to know.
Question: This seems like a stupid question, but is Jack really gay, or are they all teasing him? I'm just a little curious as to whether there's a deleted scene or something on the special DVD which clarifies that point.
