David Yates asked Margot Robbie to punch Alexander Skarsgård while directing their sex scene. He said, "It is an earthy moment of her enjoying sex with Alex. So I told her just slap Alex while you're making love. Give him a punch." Skarsgård said, "David wanted it to be primal and animalistic, so he egged us on. When you first meet them, they are very civilized and buttoned up. But the first sex scene is when they go back to the jungle." Robbie added, "We definitely got caught up in the moment." See more »
While having dinner with Jane, Rom mentions that during his last visit to Europe he attended lectures by the King of France and Henry Morton Stanley at Sorbonne University. Although the French monarchy was abolished before Stanley's 1871 voyages, several men from the Bourbon family were regarded as king by die-hard royalists. See more »
I am really surprised at the mediocre reviews so far of this film. Honestly when I first heard about the film I had little interest in seeing it, but the trailer was better than I expected, and when has Christoph Waltz been anything short of terrific in every role he has played, but particularly when he is a bad guy. (Come to think of it has he ever been a good guy?) The whole cast is solid, and I really liked the historical setting concerning the Belgian King Leopold and his exploitation of the Congo.
I found all the animals and the CGI to be surprisingly cheesy. Undoubtedly the weakest link in the film, but that factor did not subtract much from a constantly entertaining and solid story. Besides the cheesy CGI the rest of the film looked terrific. I would recommend to see it on the big screen. It will probably lose a lot on smaller screens. Good summer popcorn film.
