Although most of the film was shot in HD with Panavision Genesis cameras, about a week of shooting was done on 35mm film because the location was forecast to be over 110 degrees Fahrenheit, and the filmmakers were concerned that the relatively new and under-tested Genesis would overheat and fail.

At the cabin, Cage tells a joke about a Buddhist monk ordering a hot dog. He actually ruins the joke when he messes up the punchline, saying "I'll have one with everything." However, the actual line is "Make me one with everything", a subtle but extremely important difference.

(at around 53 mins) When Nicolas Cage is zapping through TV channels, he stops at one showing the movie Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), leaving it on for the FBI to listen to. The plot of "Dr. Strangelove" is about a rogue general attempting to start a nuclear holocaust with a wayward nuke. An obvious reference to the nuke in this film.

(at around 42 mins) The Italian painter is Elio Carletti (1925-1980), not Carlotti. He was an Italian impressionist artist and an inspector for the Italian police. The Italian dubbing replaced him with the more famous Leon Battista Alberti who wrote a lot about beauty but, seemingly, not that quote.

At about 1:17, Cage says "...Aim for the door - 8 inches above the handrail." At the moment Moore fires, the crosshairs are about 2 inches above the handrail. This is an old joke.
