Trivia

When sitting down with Michelle Pfeiffer to discuss the character of Lillian, Alex Kurtzman decided on a more naturalistic, slightly disheveled look for the role. As he described it: "this woman probably hasn't put on make-up in a year. She's been sitting by her dying husband's side and when we first meet her in the movie, that's where she's at. If we're too glamorous in this portrayal, it'll ring totally false." Pfeiffer agreed wholeheartedly and altered her otherwise glamorous image to play the grieving widow.
Michelle Pfeiffer tried to get a scene removed where her character slaps Chris Pine across the face. Pfeiffer felt that it would be difficult for her character to redeem herself in the eyes of the audience. However, the scene remains in the film.
Alex Kurtzman spent two weeks prior to principal photography rehearsing with the entire cast; a practice rarely done for a Hollywood movie.
Rachel McAdams was considered for the lead role, but Elizabeth Banks was later cast.
Michael Hall D'Addario beat out hundreds of child actors for the role of Josh.
Hilary Swank read the script and pursued a role in the film, but was ultimately turned down.
Amy Adams was considered for the lead role but dropped out to spend time with her family.
Meryl Streep was considered for a role. Ultimately, Michelle Pfeiffer was cast.
Second collaboration between Elizabeth Banks & Olivia Wilde.
