Added DiffLines:

* BannedInChina: Banned in North Korea, because 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of First Great Leader Kim Il-Sung.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Tuckerization}}: The lead character is called Jackson Curtis because Roland Emmerich is a huge fan of 50 Cent (real name Curtis Jackson) and wanted to name him after him.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Roland Emmerich wanted to show the destruction of the Kaaba in Mecca. Producers opposed this, not wanting to offend radical Muslims.
** Gerard Butler was in the running for the role of Jackson but had to turn it down. Seth Rogen also turned down the role of Adrian.
** Scenes were filmed showing [[spoiler: Harry, Adrian's father]] surviving the tsunami - the cruise ship having merely run aground. Also Jackson would have gotten fed up with Anheuser and punched him. Both are included as extras on the DVD.
