Trivia

Jennifer Lawrence, who had worked with director Francis Lawrence on three Hunger Games movies, joined the cast as Dominika early on in the process of making this movie.


Quotes

Dmitri Ustinov: And what is it you want from me?
Dominika Egorova: All I ever wanted was to be a dancer. Ever since I was a small child. And I would take the bus to rehearsal after school. And I would look out of the windows at the people going about their lives. Going to work, half...


Goofs

When Dominika arrives at Heathrow, it is stated she's entering Terminal 2, however both the interior and exterior shots are filmed at Terminal 5.


Crazy Credits

The title doesn't appear until the 10-minute mark.


Alternate Versions

At the distributor's request, the UK version (both in cinemas and on video) is cut for "strong sadistic violence" to earn a 15 certificate instead of an 18. As both countries make up the same distribution region, Ireland also received the same cut version (rated 16 for cinema and 18 on video). The contentious scene shows Ustinov being strangled:

  • In the UK version, we only see a brief establishing shot where his hands are covering his throat, cutting right to a close-up of Dominika struggling but completely clean. The censored footage shows the wire cutting into Ustinov's throat for much longer, in more graphic detail after his arms hang loose, and him bleeding on Dominika's chest.
  • Ustinov collapsing uses an alternate shot in the UK version, and the second close-up of Dominika is digitally bloodless as with the first, but there's still blood on her chest when putting on her clothes as per the uncut version (a continuity error).
The uncut version is roughly 13 seconds longer.
