Trivia: Vantage Point

  • All-Star Cast: William Hurt is the President; Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox, his bodyguards; Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver are part of a news team covering the event; Forest Whitaker is an American tourist caught by the event; Eduardo Noriega is a local cop and Sad Taghmaoui the head of the terrorist cell.
  • Billing Displacement: Despite being fourth-billed and having her picture on the poster to boot, Sigourney Weaver only appears in the first segment.
  • Fake Nationality: The only Spanish actor in the movie is Eduardo Noriega.
  • Too Soon: Averted. The original script was written in 2004, and it was set in Madrid. The producers changed the setting to Salamanca because they wanted something "more exotic".
