Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • All of the night scenes involving Andy, Tammy, Scarlet, Doyle and Sam's journey across London to escape the bombs were shot day-for-night using a new technique created specifically for the film by director of photography Enrique Chediak. The scenes were shot day-for-night for three reasons. Firstly, because the filmmakers weren't allowed to use Mackintosh Muggleton (Andy) at night time. Secondly, because there is supposed to be a total shut down of all power in London, hence every building must appear light-less. However, if one were to actually shoot at night time in London, this would be impossible to capture photo-realistically and would hence involve complex post-production work removing all of the lights. By shooting during the day time however, there are few lights on in most buildings anyway, and as such, when the day-for-night treatment is applied to the film stock, everything in the image darkens equally, thus giving the impression that all of the buildings are in total darkness. Thirdly, director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo has always been a big fan of the 'ghostly' quality day-for-night shooting has, and he felt it would create the perfect sense of unease for the film.
  • SPOILER: The iconic last shot was a last minute addition to the movie. The shooting script ends with the shot of the parked helicopter, and this was supposed to be how the film ended. However, two days before the locked off edit was supposed to be handed in to Fox Searchlight for distribution, writer/director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, writer/producer Enrique López Lavigne and co-producer Bernard Bellew flew to Paris to shoot the scene with which the film now ends. This scene was conceived at the last minute by Fresnadillo and López Lavigne, and was shot completely guerrilla style, with only the three crewmen, twelve local actors hired on the day of the shoot, and one DV camera. Sound for the scene was rapidly mixed back in London, and the shot was hastily added to the end of the film.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When the survivors are driving to escape the toxic gas, the windshield is covered in blood, which disappears in the next shot, then reappears.
  • Movie Goof (errors in geography): Doyle tries to start the car using the starter while sitting on the left side of the car. In England, the steering/starter switch is on the right side. When he decides to push-start the car, to help Andy, Scarlet and Tammy escape the gas, Scarlett tries to start and drive from the right side.
