      • Clay Davis as a public relations officer? Sheeeeeiiiiiiitttt.
    • Nino Brown lives, and is alot less evil.
    • You may remember the sex slave master with the bags as Bonez. Antoine Fuqua seems to like this guy alot since he was also in The Replacement Killers.
  • The Shelf of Movie Languishment: Completed in 2008 and premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival, the film underwent reshoots through its original distributor but after said reshoots, the distributor went under. After spending a few months in distribution limbo, Overture Films (now the distribution outlet for Relativity Media) bought the film at a bankruptcy auction for $2 million, released it in March 2010 (four months after the original Thanksgiving date) and made a tidy profit.
