Trivia

From the moment director Francis Lawrence read the book, he knew that one of the main goals would be to maintain key elements from source novelist Jason Matthews' original story. "There's definitely a sexuality to the book," said Lawrence. "There's definitely violence in the book. There is kind of an audacity to it and I wanted to make sure that we captured that. The thing that [screenwriter] Justin [Haythe] and I really worked hard at, and later [actress] Jennifer [Lawrence] and I worked on, was making sure that it felt organic, that it didn't feel gratuitous, that it was never exploitative. The idea was never to make an erotic thriller, never to titillate in any kind of way, but to ensure that the content feels really organic to the story and to the dilemma of the character and so we really carefully modulated anything that was sexual or involved nudity or involved violence, to find that right tone." Haythe added: "It's really about a single character's journey, someone who finds herself manipulated by powers much larger than herself. Dominika [(Jennifer Lawrence)] suffers an injury and, through an uncle [Matthias Schoenaerts], is pulled into this world of espionage. And it's a world where her sexuality is weaponized, as it were, in the sense that she is trained as a seductress. But she is too big and too complicated a person to be a seductress, and she changes the rules on the people that forced her into this world." See more »

Goofs

When the Russian interrogator leaves Dominika, as she picks up her pistol from the table she holds and carries it with her finger on the trigger. This is contrary to basic gun safety rules and it's unlikely that anyone with military or government firearms training would do this, even if the gun is empty. See more »
