The song "London Bridge is Falling Down" is heard several times in the film. The lyrics to the song is a reference to the movie's title.

A bridge appears on Pendergrast''s retirement cake then moments later, he punches a Detective
who falls into the bridge. Prendergast also planned to retire to Lake Havasu, Arizona, where the old London Bridge was moved to in 1971. In the "what's wrong with the street?" scene, the construction worker explains he is there to keep people from falling in, and when D-Fens shoots out the phone booth, a cyclist falls down off his bicycle●
The cashier at the Whammy Burger, Sheila, is played by Michelle Pfeiffer's younger sister, Dedee●Michael Douglas considers this his favorite performance of all the movies he has been in. Before he signed on, the script was being considered for a cable TV show●Lois Smith plays Michael Douglas' mother in this movie and his secretary in Fatal Attraction●Most studios in Hollywood turned down Ebbe Roe Smith's script. Producer, Arnold Kopelson was getting to the stage of considering cable TV when Michael Douglas came across the script and pronounced it one of the best he'd ever read

Coppola shows DeNiro how to "properly" use a knife while filming The Godfather: Part II 🗡🎬
〰️
#FilmPlot: The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York is portrayed while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate.
〰️
#FilmFact: Francis Ford Coppola had a horrible time directing The Godfather (1972) and asked to pick a different director for the sequel, while taking the title of producer for himself. He chose Martin Scorsese, whom the film executives rejected. Thus, Coppola agreed to direct the film, with a few conditions.

Happy birthday to the insanely talented Kevin Spacey! There were so many clips I could have posted but Spacey's ability to play such an asshole of a character is so impressive. I love this guy.
〰️
#FilmPlot: Dale, Kurt and Nick decide to start their own business but things don't go as planned because of a slick investor, prompting the trio to pull off a harebrained and misguided kidnapping scheme.
〰️
#FilmFact: The cast has a total of five Academy awards thanks to one from Jamie Foxx (Ray), two from Kevin Spacey (The Usual Suspects, American Beauty), and two from Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained)

Except for Sarah's husband, and some non speaking extras in the hospital scene, no men appear in the film●Filmmakers originally planned for the cast to be both male and female, but Neil Marshall's business partner realised that horror films almost never have an all-female cast. Defying convention, Marshall cast all women●The cast members were taken to a rock-climbing center in Derbyshire to help prepare for filming●No real caves appear anywhere in the film- they were all sets built at Pinewood Studios, London created by Production Designer Simon Bowles. The filmmakers considered it too dangerous and too time consuming to film in actual caves. 6 cave sets were built for the film●The split second shot of a crawler's silhouette before they are encountered for the first time was shot without any of the actresses realizing he was there. The girls were genuinely scared and screamed the building down, running off set and laughing●The "crawlers" were designed to resemble Nosferatu from the film of the same name. It took three and a half hours in makeup to transform an actor into a "crawler." They had to shave off their body hair as well●There was an exact replica made of Nora-Jane Noone, and after the movie was finished, she got to keep the head of the doll. Once, she put it in her mother's freezer as a joke●The Descent opened in the same week as the 2005 London bombings which affected the film's chances at the box-office●Read the comments for the rest of the trivia

Throughout the trilogy, he played various orcs, Uruk-hai, a Gondorian, and a Rohirrim soldier.

The film is based on Michael Dougherty's 1996 animated short film Season's Greetings which debuted the character of Sam, as in "Samhain", the ancient Celtic festival of the dead from which modern-day Halloween is derived◆He created Sam when he attended NYU. It was his senior thesis film. He was enrolled in the film program but specialized in animation. He said It was all hand-drawn, old-school animation style and did it over the course of 7 months. It grew it's own little mini cult following. It kept going from one film festival to another and another◆Dougherty wanted to create a mascot for Halloween, because he felt a pumpkin wasn't a mascot◆His rationale was, if there is some sort of deity that embodied Halloween, he would be more like a child and disguise himself to look like a kid and walk around the streets amongst the other little kids innocently. He shouldn't be some sort of giant, 7-foot-tall demon with wings, whips, and chains, like he just stepped out of a GWAR concert, which he felt would have been overkill◆The short film, Season's Greetings is on the special features of the film's DVD/Blu-ray and can also be seen on youtube◆Adult actors who were 4'5 and under were used to fill in for kids during the trick or treating scenes since this film was shot mainly at night. Real kids could not work these hours◆Anna @_annapaquin Paquin plays a werewolf dressed as Little Red Riding hood where as In the fairytale, Little Red Riding Hood is eaten by a wolf.

During one of the scenes involving the kangaroo court in The Dark Knight Rises, Bane can be seen in the rear of the courtroom quietly knitting. Screenwriter, Jonathan Nolan says Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities was one of the inspirations for TDKR. Knitting is an allusion to Madame Defarge, and her practice of knitting while watching public guillotine executions in A Tale Of Two Cities. Defarge symbolizes several themes. She represents one aspect of the Fates. The Moirai (the Fates as represented in Greek mythology) used yarn to measure out the life of a man, and cut it to end it; Defarge knits, and her knitting secretly encodes the names of people to be killed. Defarge also symbolizes the nature of the Reign of Terror during the French Revolution in which radical Jacobins engaged in mass political persecution of all real or supposed enemies of the Revolution who were executed on grounds of sedition to the new republic with the guillotine, particularly targeting people with aristocratic heritage.
The actress pictured here is Blanche Yurka, who potrayed Madame Defarge in the 1935 film A Tale Of Two Cities directed by Jack Conway
