Spawn picture

Trivia: At the dinner ceremony where Spawn attacks Wynn and kills Church, you can see a red-headed woman in a blue gown walking among the patrons in the beginning of the scene. The camera focuses on her briefly, but for a reason - look at her earrings. They are Spawn insignia. This is a reference to the angel Hellspawn hunter Angela, who wears those same insignia in the comics as trophies of her victories over previous Hellspawn. Very clever reference.

A Life Less Ordinary picture

Trivia: Random point. The hiker who stops Ewan McGregor during his escape is Timothy Olyphant, in only his second film role. You may not know the name, but he went on to play the killer in Scream 2, a drug dealer in Go, and a detective in Gone in 60 Seconds. Well, I was surprised.
