• The movie was originally too long and they had to re-edit it and cut parts out of the opening.

“We were running about 15 minutes too long. We wanted to have a film that was under two hours, so we ended up reworking the first act and condensing it, to get to the meat of the story quicker and to get to Angelina’s character quicker, as well.” – Robert Stromberg
