Trivia

Michael C. Hall personally recommended actor Sam Witwer for his role after Witwer played "Neil Perry" in Dexter (2006).
Keith David, who plays the detective in the interrogation scene with Logan Lerman also did the voice over for the "Slayers" commercial.
The opening montage of time-lapse shots and other scenes of the world where we see ads for Kable and/or graffiti of Ken Castle overlaid on buildings or walls are mostly taken from Ron Fricke's wordless film Baraka (1992), for example, the shots of the Giza Pyramids, India, homeless man sleeping under a bridge among others.
In an unusual move, the film was actually shot for the 2.40:1 aspect ratio. However, the first edited scenes were done with the unmatted image, but subsequently masked to 2.40:1. The directors preferred the 1.85:1 version, which allowed the audience to see more information and accommodated the handheld camerawork better, and so the aspect ratio was switched. Miraculously, no boom mics needed to be digitally erased from the previously-unused picture information.
(at around 19 mins) The news anchors are played by Psych (2006) co-stars James Roday and Maggie Lawson who as of the film's release, were also in their third year of a relationship.
The film takes place in 2034.
