Question: Wasn't Quentin himself supposed to make a cameo in Volume 2? Did he? I watched it twice keeping my eyes peeled for QT, I really don't think he's there...

Chosen answer: He was suppose to play Pai-Mei, but due to how much he was doing just directing and producing the movie, he didn't have time for the complex martial arts training.

Question: At the end of the film, why are the two 'goons' waiting for George Clooney and Co. nearby? Are they now involved with them as perhaps some sort of bodyguards, or are they just keeping an eye on him on behalf of the casino?

Chosen answer: They have been assigned to watch Clooney by Andy Garcia because Garcia still suspects that Clooney had a role in the robbery. They're waiting for an opportunity to either gather evidence against him or simply beat him up some more.

Question: A lot of people in this film sing the song "Danke Shoen." Why do they do this?

Chosen answer: It is a song that easily gets stuck in one's head after hearing it; it's more or less used as a comic effect for this reason. Ferris sings it twice (once in the shower and again in the parade), Mr. Rooney hums it at Ferris' house, and Jeannie sings it when leaving the police station.

Question: I saw various scenes in the preview of the movie that do not appear in the film itself. Some include Kell being cut in half, and then both halves regenerating into two different Kells. Another was Kell blowing on some floating globe that explodes with the image of his face. This made "Endgame" look like the third film where the villain was the illusionist Kane, but when I saw the movie, these scenes were taken out and the villain had no such powers. What happened to these scenes? What were they about? And are they available anywhere in any earlier cuts of the film? I could not find them in the early cut feature on the DVD...

Chosen answer: The scenes you mention were only meant to be part of the trailer. This was to show that Jacob Kell was the "most powerful" immortal yet. The 'cut in half' scene is playing on the idea that Kell is unbeatable. I suggest rewatching the trailer with these ideas in mind. It may make more sense. These scenes were what Dimension Films wasted a hefty portion of the promotional and marketing budgets on. There was NEVER any script written that included them, nor any version of the film that ever included them.

Question: In the scene when Logan intrudes on a briefing while looking for the diamond, the policemen mention something like the P-30 or something to that effect. What is it?

Chosen answer: The P-30s they were discussing were the department-issued guns the cops had. They were complaining that they were not good to use and since Logan was lead detective, they made him decide what to do with the issue.

Question: Why are Merry and Pippin not surprised to see Gandalf when the company approaches Isengard? It never says that they spoke to Treebeard about him and they are not drunk enough to completely forget that they thought Gandalf was dead.

Chosen answer: They've already seen him alive, shortly after meeting Treebeard for the first time - Treebeard takes them to see 'the white wizard' and we see the pair being dropped in front of somebody wearing white. We're supposed to assume, at the time, that it's Saruman, but, as is revealed, it's actually Gandalf.

Question: On the DVD, what happens if you answer all the questions right on "Your Mission" in the Features menu?

Chosen answer: The DVD then takes you to the Gag Reel with bloopers and outtakes from the movie.

Question: Where would Kahn learn a Klingon proverb? He was marooned on a planet, and before that he was in hibernation.

Chosen answer: Given Khan's heightened intellect, he'd undoubtedly be an information junkie - he's had plenty of time, either on the Enterprise before his marooning or afterwards on the Reliant, to read up on the current state of the galaxy - he presumably found the proverb in some datafile somewhere.

Question: After killing Bill, the bride takes BB to her car which somebody is in. Who is in her car?

Chosen answer: It's a valet parking attendant, bringing her car around.

Question: Bourne did not kill the men at the deal in the beginning of the film, so who did? Matt Damon is definitely playing the killer, as we see his face for brief moments in between shadows, etc. in order for us to think it is him. Was it Kirill, Karl Urban's character? Or the former Treadstone agent?

Chosen answer: It was Kiril, in the pay of the Russian businessman.

Question: Does anyone know if Gambit (had a stick and threw playing cards) will be introduced in the new X-men film and can anyone explain why he hasn't been introduced yet? I always remember he was a major character in the cartoon.

Lummie Premium member

Chosen answer: Rumor has it he will be in the third film. Nothing definite yet. There is no reason he hasn't been introduced yet. Why hasn't Archangel, Beast, Bishop or Forge been introduced? Why not the Sentinels? Why is Rogue starting out as a good guy? The movies will not exactly follow the comics or cartoon.

Question: What is the name of the song that Eugene Levy sings at the house, when he is trying out for wedding singer?

Chosen answer: "Volare", originally performed by Nicola Arigliano in the 50's, but made most popular by Dean Martin.

Question: Who are the actors that play Gil-galad and Isildur? They are never mentioned in the "making of" specials. Isildur has a very big part compared to other characters that were interviewed. Also, why is Hugo Weaving (Elrond) never interviewed for the DVD? He has an extremely important part.

Chosen answer: Gil-galad and Isildur were played by Mark Ferguson and Harry Sinclair respectively. Why would they be mentioned - Gil-galad appears in about one shot and Isildur appears for a few minutes at the beginning and has only one line (and even that is actually voiced by Hugo Weaving). They're very minor characters - when there are so many larger characters to deal with, no reason to include them. As for Hugo Weaving, who knows - maybe he wasn't available, or preferred not to be interviewed for some reason. You have to remember that despite his part being important, he's not actually on-screen all that much during the trilogy, certainly compared to many of the other characters.

Question: In the extra features on the DVD, Peter Jackson states that they had to use the rocky landscape for the plains of Rohan because New Zealand doesn't have any plains. What then is the area in front of Minas Tirith? It seems like very extensive plains. Is it all effects?

Chosen answer: Some of it is CG, but some of it is real plains, trouble is they couldn't use the same plains for Gondor and Rohan, they wouldn't be distinguishable enough from each other.

Question: How is Jude Ciccolella's, who played Mike Novick, last name pronounced?

Chosen answer: Chick-o-lell-a.

Question: Is the footage right at the beginning of the film (black and caramel-ish colour) real footage of the ship from 1912 or just made to look like real footage from 1912?

Chosen answer: Its part of the filming that's made to look older. If you notice later on you will see the same footage in black and white, but mirrored.

Question: Just after Mia has to let her hair down from under her hat in class, Lilly says something to stop people saying stuff about Mia's hair. What does she say?

Chosen answer: She wants the class to concentrate on "Voltaire", not "hair". Voltaire was a French writer & philosopher, author of 'Candide'.

Question: I've been looking everywhere on the internet for the full length version on 'Many Meetings' to listen to online. Does anyone know where i can find it?

Chosen answer: Actually, the full length version has a copyright; therefore, it would be illegal to post the full version online without permission. The only way I know of getting the song would be to buy the soundtrack CD.

Question: What was the song that a group of boys were singing during the Spring Fling?

Chosen answer: The song is called Istanbul (Not Constantinople). It was written by Trevor Horn. You can read the lyrics at http://www.lyricsondemand.com/soundtracks/m/monalisasmilelyrics/istanbulnotconstantinoplelyrics.html.
