** TheBigGuy: Howard is the largest brother and frequently called upon when heads need cracking. Although Forrest is pretty big, too, still carrying most of his [[TheDarkKnightRises Bane]] muscle.

* NeverTrustATrailer: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zl7S1LaPMU This trailer]] implies that Floyd Banner is a quite important character as Rake's [[The Dragon Dragon]], but Banner is actually a very minor character (Gary Oldman has less than ten minutes onscreen) and an ally of the Bondurants. Its also shows [[spoiler:Cricket's funeral without saying who died, implying they are those of one of the protagonists - all three are still alive until the very end of the movie, which is set years after the main story.]]
