* NonIndicativeTitle: Indirectly. ''Manhunter'' is actually a decent alternative title and fits well. But immediately after the success of ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', this film was broadcast on TV under the title ''Red Dragon: The Pursuit of Hannibal Lector''. The subtitle is the non-indicative part since it's set before ''Silence of the Lambs'', thus Lector is still behind bars where he stays for the entire film.



* WorkingTitle: The film was originally going to be entitled ''Red Dragon'', the same name as the novel. However, when ''Film/YearOfTheDragon'' became a box office failure, Dino De Laurentiis decided to avoid a "dragon" title.

Added DiffLines:

* LifeImitatesArt: William Peterson found the role of Will Graham mentally exhausting and had trouble shaking Graham's characterisation even when he went on to other roles (he had to radically change his own appearance in order to look in the mirror and see someone else, according to Wiki/TheOtherWiki). Very appropriate, given that he's playing a criminal profiler who was institutionalised because he couldn't shake the thoughts of the serial killers he hunted.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://www.avclub.com/articles/brian-cox,2424/ According to Brian Cox]], Brian Dennehy was "sort of in the loop" to play Lektor. Dennehy, for whatever reason, recommended that they check out Cox, who was performing in a play at the time.

** Some sources indicate that the third game was going to be set in Chicago and the fourth and final in London. Others claim London for third and Orbs' homeworlds for fourth.
** Advertisements for the games claimed the player would have to decide whether to remain a loyal servant of the Orbs or join the resistance. There are no opportunities for such decisions in the actual games.
