After the Sunset (2004) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (2)
Max and Lola's beach house was built from scratch on a beach.
It was so cold during filming of some beach scenes, that the actors' breath was visible.
The pier to which Max (Pierce Brosnan) ties the inflatable boat was a set piece fabricated just for the film. However, there was once a pier at this location (Sycamore Cove State Beach) in a different location. Occasionally the old pier pilings are visible protruding through the sand.
The beach house (exteriors) were filmed at Sycamore Cove State Beach, just north of Malibu. The structure is actually the regional state lifeguard headquarters.

AMC theaters and New Line promoted this movie by placing an ad for a sweepstakes on their large popcorn bags. They misspelled Salma Hayek's last name as "Hayak" on the initial print run but the error was quickly caught and rectified.

Talking about joining the movie, Brett Ratner said: "I love caper films. There are so many great films in this genre, but what makes After the Sunset different is that it's a heist movie that has a combination of great relationships, heart and comedy."

When Max and Stan are fishing on the boat Max catches a shark, once Stan touches it and finding out it is still alive he shoots it several times while telling it the Mirada rights. The bullets should have gone through the fish and penetrated the floor and hull of the ship. Next scene you see them pulling into the dock with seemingly no issues with the bullet penetrations.

Actress Naomie Harris, who plays Miss Eve Moneypenny in the James Bond films, became the sixth major actor who has starred in motion pictures based on works of both John le Carré and 'Ian Fleming (I)', both famous spy novelists. Harris' role as Gail Perkins in Our Kind of Traitor (2016) follows her two previous appearances in Bond movies, in Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015). Pierce Brosnan and Sean Connery are actors who have both previously portrayed James Bond on screen and both have starred in le Carré filmed adaptations, they being The Tailor of Panama (2001) and The Russia House (1990) respectively, the latter which has a title that evokes Fleming's From Russia with Love (1963) which starred Connery as Bond. Of Connery's 007 Bond films, his one unofficial Bond movie, Never Say Never Again (1983), co-starred Klaus Maria Brandauer, who also appeared in The Russia House (1990). Alas, Connery and Brandauer have starred in the same two Bond and le Carré spy movies. Moreover, Harris and Brosnan both appeared in the thriller adventure cinema movie After the Sunset (2004). The first actor to portray an M character in the Bond films, Bernard Lee, was the first actor ever to do both Bond and le Carré. Lee appeared as Patmore in le Carré's classic spy movie The Spy Who Came in from the Cold (1965), which was the first ever filmed adaptation of a le Carré novel. The le Carré adaptation film The Constant Gardener (2005) starred Ralph Fiennes, who played Justin Quayle, and has portrayed the Bond series' new M character Gareth Mallory in both Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015), as has Harris played Eve Moneypenny in the two. Rachel Weisz, the wife of James Bond actor Daniel Craig, previously starred as Tessa Quayle in The Constant Gardener (2005), for which she won a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award, with Wiesz and Fiennes playing husband and wife in that movie.
