Tom Cruise is credited with special thanks in regards to the film, due to his initial interest in the film, that led to a lengthy three hour meeting with Rian Johnson. Cruise's analysis of the script led to a few significant changes of the key elements of the script. As this meeting occurred precisely the same day Cruise's company was taken off by Paramount, Rian felt this was a more-than-generous act on Cruise's behalf. However, due to scheduling conflicts, as well as other factors, Cruise could never be a serious consideration for one of the lead roles. See more »
When the Brothers Bloom first visit Penelope's castle, they are driving a Cadillac Seville. Bloom asks Bang Bang, "This a '78 Caddy? Controversial choice." The car is actually a 1983 Seville, whose bodystyle was built from 1980-1985. See more »
As far as con man stories go, I think I've heard them all. Of grifters, ropers, faro-fixers; tails drawn long and tall. But if one bears a bookmark in the confidence man's tome, it would be that of Penelope, and of the brothers Bloom.

I have to say , this movie was certainly a breath of fresh air compared to the rest of the crap that has been coming out of the big production houses.
If your looking for a different movie all together , with a good story line , great acting and lovely music score ( composed by Nathan Johnson , its perfectly matches the essence being portrayed in the movie) , this is it.
Adrien Brody , Mark Ruffalo and Rachel Weiz are just amazing through out the movie . The chemistry between Brody and Ruffalo is certainly a high light of the movie , they don't look like brothers but throughout the movie you hardly notice. Rachel Weiz is as always amazing. Love her character.
Of course i cannot go away without mentioning Rinko Kikuchi as Bang Bang ,hardly any dialogues in the movie apart from a few one liners ,including "FUCK ME " ( you cannot miss it :P ) she definitely steals the show as the quirky mysterious sidekick .
I am writing this right after watching the movie so my rating as of now is definitely 9, a must watch if your tired of the usual movies hitting the screens.
