Production of this film was delayed for a month after Charlize Theron suffered a neck injury while performing a complicated stunt. Since then, her film contracts have a clause barring her from performing her own stunts.
According to the Aug.1, 2005 IMDB, Theron was too embarassed to wear the revealing clothing of the character, and requested more appropriate attire.
Charlize Theron dyed her hair black for this movie.
Frances McDormand also co-starred with Charlize Theron in "North Country" (2005) during the same year as this movie.
Terry Bartlett's first acting role.
Michelle Rodriguez was originally set to play the lead when the film was announced in 2003.
Charlize Theron had trampoline training with Cirque du Soleil's Terry Bartlett.
The scene where Aeon catches a fly with her eyelash is taken directly from the anime TV show.
The production team first chose the Brazilian capital of Brasilia as the city in which to shoot the movie. However, because of logistical problems they ended up in Berlin, Germany, where they found most of their locations, such as a recently built crematorium and underground sewers dating from before World War II.
Theatrical trailer contains alternate/unused footage (ie. Aeon wears a less revealing set of clothes when she gets up).
When Aeon is leaping over the lethal grass and lands balanced on a corner, the overhead shot closely resembles the logo from the tv series.
Famke Janssen turned down the lead role.
At one point, Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct this film.
The white knife Una uses to chop vegetables in her kitchen is made by Kyocera electronics; the blade is made of a patented ceramic material instead of steel.
Pete Postlethwaite, Frances McDormand, & Charlize Theron were listed as potential nominees on the 2006 Razzie Award nominating ballot. Pete was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Supporting Actor category; Frances was listed for Worst Supporting Actress; & Charlize was listed as a suggestion in Worst Actress category for their performances in this film. However all of them failed to receive a nomination. Had Charlize gotten the nomination, she would have been the first person to be nominated for both Leading Actress awards at the Oscars, for North Country (2005), and the Razzies. While Frances would of been one of the few to be nominated for both Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars, for North Country (2005), and Worst Supporting Actress at the Razzies.
This was the first movie to have a Rifftrax version.
Demi Moore was interested in playing the lead role in 1997 before the film was placed in the back burner before actual production had started.
According to director Karyn Kusama, after finishing the movie, the studio fired her, re-cut the movie to a 71 minute long version that tested poorly and then asked her to edit the film again, but not back to her original vision. Huge parts of the plot were left out and even one character's sexuality of being gay was cut out by the studio.
