- The U.S. release date was postponed from November 26, 2008, to October 16, 2009, to allow for additional post-production work. The 2009 release date was further delayed to November 25, 2009, to position the picture for Academy Awards competition.
Viggo Mortensen and Kodi Smit-McPhee reported bonding by eating crickets to help them get into character.
Kodi Smit-McPhee won his part over hundreds of boys due to a strong audition and his resemblance to Charlize Theron, who had been cast as Woman.
Viggo Mortensen nearly turned down the role of Man because he had planned a break from film work. After completing his work as the Man, Mortensen took a long break from acting.
An apparent CGI aerial shot, which also appears in the trailer, is a digital recreation of actual destruction by Hurricane Katrina to Empire, Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. The shot shows large, twin boats on a highway in front of a bridge over the Empire Lock on Louisiana state highway 23. In the movie rendering, a large city skyline appears on the horizon, where in actuality there would be only the rural peninsula of Plaquemines Parish.
