The Final Destination

Trivia: The huge crash that starts the film takes place at McKinley Speedway. The students who die in Final Destination 3 attend McKinley High School, and there is an running gag in that film that one of the students targeted for death is also named McKinley.

Trivia: In the end scene (right before the lead characters go into the cafe shop) you can see a bus drive past with the number 180 printed across the top. The number 180 was a significant number in the first three Final Destination films.


Trivia: The opening shows the 6 car going to repair his tires. The car and the two flags together form "666".


Trivia: The theater number towards the end where Lori and Janet go, is an unlucky 13.


Trivia: Shirley Walker composed for every FD film up until this point except this one. She died in 2006.


Trivia: The significant number from the previous three films, 180, is also seen at the beginning of this film - it is the section number that everyone is sitting in during the race.

Trivia: When Nick is trying to save his friend Hunt, he drives past a bus stop that has an advert for "Clear Rivers Water". Clear Rivers was the name of Devon Sawa's girlfriend in Final Destination and Final Destination 2.


Trivia: For the 3-D, the film's producer Craig Perry said that he wanted it to add depth to the film instead of just "something popping out at the audience every four minutes."

Low Cow

Trivia: A number of video games feature The Final Destination posters: Saints Row 2 has posters around the city taped to walls and poles, Skate 2 features billboards with posters on them, and Mercenaries 2: World in Flames added billboards with the movie's logo. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 also features the teaser posters hidden around certain maps with the main goal to find all of the posters for a chance to win $1,300.

Low Cow

Revealing mistake: In the hospital scene when the nurse is filling the tub for the patient in the room above the cowboy's, he leaves the water on. When the water starts to come out of the tub it is coming out many times faster than it is going in.

More quotes from The Final Destination

Question: I think I have missed something, but I believe, the deaths in the movie are all wrong. First of all, in the first premonition, the cowboy dies BEFORE hunt and Janet, but later in the movie he dies after them. Secondly, how can the cowboy survive if he was in the thing that was SUPPOSED to kill him? Thirdly, in the premonition, a car explosion kills George and Lori, but when Nick falls back and gets impaled, he isn't burned. Lastly,during the mall scene, before the premonition, Nick reaches the theater too late to save Janet, and she dies, but George was the last person who died, and Lori was after George. It should have gone to Lori, then Nick, THEN Janet. Can someone please explain this or tell me if I'm wrong?


Chosen answer: 1. The cowboy almost died in the original accident (hence, he ended up in the hospital) and thus death moved on to Hunt & Janet.2. The cowboy would have died as he did in the premonition, but the only reason he died like that is because Nick asked him to move (in the vision) which he didn't do in real life.3. Nick was close enough to be pushed backward by the pressure wave, but not close enough to be burned.4. *shrugs* mistake maybe?


Answer: I believe that in order for Janet to fully skip her turn, Hunt and Janet would have to both be saved and since Hunt died, Janet didn't really skip her turn and death threw her randomly into the list.

Answer: Janet never died before the premonition, most likely case scenario would be that since both Lori and Janet were at the theater death would be more likely to "kill to birds with one stone" which would mean that he wouldn't care about the order. Death would just want to get it done. Same scenario for Nick, Janet and Lori's deaths at the cafe, and Ashley and Ashlyn's deaths from FD3.
