Jodie Foster was pregnant with her second child during filming. Because of this, reshoots had to be made in the autumn of 2001 after she had given birth, as principal photography took longer than planned. See more »
As we know from the prologue when Evan is showing the panic room to Meg, the panic room door makes a lot of noise when opening and closing. Therefore, when she runs out to get her phone, the intruders would have heard it immediately. See more »
This was a very suspenseful and exciting thriller from David Fincher who is responsible for my all time favourite film which is Seven. This new film has another very good performance by Jodie Foster but the acting standout of the film has to go to Dwight Yoakam with awesome performance as Raoul. The only problem i had with this film was its ending which was a bit of a let down but did not really spoil the film at all.
