Saw II picture

Trivia: When Jigsaw and Eric escape the lair via a hidden elevator, the film's low budget prevented the construction of an actual working elevator. Thus, some trick photography and editing was implemented. For the first shot of Jigsaw and Eric "going down", the scene was shot by raising the camera vertically to give the impression they were descending. For the next wide shot, simple digital effects were added to make it appear that the room was "lowering." And for the final shot where we see the top of the elevator going down an elevator shaft, stock footage from the film "Hollow Man" was used.

Sin City picture

Trivia: Because everything was shot against a green screen, some bits of colour proved difficult. Yellow Bastard especially was hard, as yellow bleeds into the green screen and can't be separated cleanly. To get around this, Robert Rodriguez painted him blue, then turned him yellow in post production.

Trivia: The many Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are all played by the same man - Deep Roy. They used CGI to duplicate him. He would do a ton of different dance moves so when it's all put together, it would look like there were a bunch of different Oompa Loompas.

The Island picture

Trivia: Robert Fiveson, the producer of the 1979 B movie "Parts: The Clonus Horror" sued Dreamworks, Warner Brothers, Michael Bay and the producers of "The Island", citing over ninety similarities between the films. Despite the fact that he was a long forgotten producer of low budget films and he was up against the biggest names in Hollywood, he settled out of court for an undisclosed "seven figure sum" and 15% of the net profits of "The Island." Since it cost £126,000,000 plus advertising and netted just £81,000,000, I hope he got his seven figure sum.
