* BillingDisplacement: In the 2010 film, Josh Brolin is billed third and above the title, but doesn't appear until an hour in and has somewhat less presence.
** AndStarring: HaileeSteinfeld, despite being the protagonist, is the last name to appear in the credits. This may be partially due to it being her first film.

[[note]]Though for the Oscars at least, there is a theory it was to give her a better chance of actually ''winning'', since Best Actress was considered a lock for Natalie Portman at the time.

* DisabledCharacterDisabledActor: In the 2010 film, a woman missing her left forearm (due to a birth defect) was hired to play older Mattie in shots that don't show her face. She winds up having more screen time than the actress that plays older Mattie, mostly due to the long shot at the end of Mattie [[spoiler:walking away from Rooster's grave]] that lasts into the credits.
