Trivia

The first film to be shot using a 120 frame rate.
Joe Alwyn's first feature film role.
The idea of shooting in 120fps along with native 4k rendering and mastering, came from an experimental film shot by Douglas Trumbull (2001 fame). Trumbull showcased his work to Ang Lee, who came back to Trumbull's private theatre for repeat viewings including his family and eventually Sony executives, who put the film into production.
Chris Tucker's first feature film in 4 years.
Steve Martin's first non-animated feature film role in five years since The Big Year (2011).
Kristen Stewart wears hair extensions in the film. She was still growing her hair out after having it cut short for her role of Nia in the film Equals.
Steve Martin revealed in an interview that they were several weeks into the shoot before he realized that Joe Alwyn wasn't an American but was actually English. Alwyn's American accent was so accurate that Martin didn't have a clue that he was from the UK.
