Trivia

George Clooney turned down a cameo as himself in a segment where he would be shown to be bad at picking up women. His response, reportedly, was "No fucking way"
The movie was filmed over a span of four years.
Anton Yelchin originally played a necrophiliac, in a segment called The Apprentice, directed by Steve Baker and Damon Escott. The segment was removed due to the highly offensive subject matter.
Stephen Merchant stated that he signed on mainly to be around Halle Berry.
Colin Farrell was originally cast as The Leprechaun.
Trey Parker and Matt Stone were initially set to direct a segment, but they dropped out.
Not screened in advance for critics.
Sam Rockwell was originally attached to reprise his role as Batman in the superhero segment (which was intended to be a sequel to the short film Robin's Big Date (2005)) but pulled out to do Seven Psychopaths (2012) instead.
Kate Winslet reportedly wanted to do a segment that showcased her ear on her back.
The framing device was initially supposed to involve three teenagers going on a treasure hunt to find the mysterious Movie 43 of the plot and the rest of the segments would be featured as what the characters thought was it but wasn't. The version of the film released in the UK retains this device instead of the 'movie producer' version.

Development began at Overture Films. When Overture put the movie into turnaround, Relativity Media picked it up. A few months later, Relativity bought Overture.
James Gunn found it so amusing that the producers would object to the title of the song he wrote for "Beezel", even though it remains in the lyrics, that he wrote a series of sardonic emails to the music department claiming the song being titled "That Gay Fucking Cat" was essential to the piece's artistic integrity, and offering a paltry sum of cash in exchange for keeping it. When the music department was not amused, Gunn and composer Tyler Bates then submitted a list of highly offensive, and utterly nonsensical, replacement titles. The song was finally given the title "The Cat Song".
