Did you know ... ?

  1. Ryan Reynolds' extremely short cameo as Carver was filmed remotely while he was on the set of his Netflix film The Adam Project (2022). Producer Kelly McCormick humorously remarked that it was "payback for Brad Pitt being in Deadpool 2 (2018) for two seconds."
  2. The fruit truck Lemon drives at the end of the movie is the same truck that almost hits Ladybug at the start of the movie.
  3. Brad Pitt's character says that he never forgets a face but struggles to remember who The Wolf is. In real life, Pitt has prosopagnosia, a condition that impairs the ability to recognize familiar faces, including one's own face. He has said in interviews that, just as his character does, he needs to remember the context and the situation in which he has met someone in order to remember who that person is.
  4. Brad Pitt did 95% of his own stunts in this film according to stunt coordinator Greg Rementer.
  5. Aaron Taylor-Johnson lost a chunk of his hand and passed out after doing a stunt.
  6. David Leitch: Innocent Victim #17 who gets blown up by the car.
  7. The smart toilet was Brad Pitt's idea, brought up only the day before shooting the scene.
  8. Director David Leitch and Brad Pitt had a long working relationship before Bullet Train (2022). Leitch has worked as Pitt's stunt double in multiple films including Fight Club (1999), Ocean's Eleven (2001), Troy (2004) and Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005). Pitt also made a cameo in Leitch's second directorial effort Deadpool 2 (2018).
  9. In the third act, David Leitch originally intended for the White Death to appear in a tailored suit. Michael Shannon shot that idea down and suggested that he should wear loose fitting clothing as if to suggest the White Death has become so consumed with grief over the death of his wife and driven by vengeance, that he has worn the exact same clothes for two years, which Leitch instantly approved of.
  10. Prince is reading "Shibumi" by Rod Whitaker (aka Trevanian), a novel about a Russo-Japanese assassin who, among other things, kills his father. The same book is being read by the airfield security guard in John Wick.
  11. The book that Channing Tatum's character is reading appears to be one of Sandra Bullock's character in The Lost City (2022), Loretta Sage, books. Tatum starred alongside Bullock in The Lost City as her cover model, Alan. The movie also started Brad Pitt, which let them all reunite on this movie together.
  12. Sandra Bullock replaced Lady Gaga in this movie.
  13. The scene where Lemon is catching The Son's head during the car chase was improvised as Logan Lerman pretended to be completely unconscious to make the scene authentic.
  14. Ladybug tells Maria on the phone that in 7 minutes he will be off the train. Exactly 7 minutes later he and Tangerine go off the train during their fight
  15. Early in the film, Tangerine and Lemon debate the merits of wearing a bullet proof vest. Lemon says "Vests give you a false sense of security. You might like get shot in the neck", to which Tangerine replies, "Yeah, it also stops you from getting shot in the chest". Incidentally, Lemon foreshadowed Tangerine's death via gun shot wound to the neck, and Tangerine foreshadowed Lemon surviving 2 shots to the chest due to said vest.
  16. The movie is based on the Japanese novel "Maria Beetle" by Kôtarô Isaka, which was first published in 2010. The visibility from the film production led to Harvill Secker's acquisition of the novel's English publishing rights, bringing Isaka's work to English for the first time.
  17. The first trailer featured Bee Gee's song "Stayin' Alive" in three languages: Japanese, Spanish, and English.
  18. Aside from a henchman, The Prince, and White Death (who used Prince's weapon as his own, so technically, just the first two), everyone who tries to kill Ladybug is eventually killed with their own weapon. The White Death is rumored to kill everyone who comes after him with their own weapon.
  19. Bad Bunny accidentally punched Brad Pitt in the face during their fight sequence.
  20. Sony executives, after being impressed by his scenes in "Bullet Train," reportedly reached out to Aaron Taylor-Johnson to star as the title character in "Kraven the Hunter (2024)."
  21. Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum were all in The Lost City (2022), which came out this same year (March 2022). Bullet Train went into production first and Tatum and Bullock enjoyed working with Pitt so much that they offered him a supporting role in their film.
  22. Joey King and Brian Tyree Henry's scene was partly improvised. Brian's line where Lemon is asking Prince if she studied acting and/or where, was improvised.
  23. In the end credits, the story is told from the point of view of the water bottle as a symbol of fate and how everything is connected. The same bottle has a cameo in another Pitt/Bullock film, The Lost City (2022).
  24. Joey King spent up to three hours a day perfecting her British accent for this movie.
  25. Despite their high speed, bullet trains (Shinkansen) in Japan are noted for being remarkably quiet and stable. To that extent, the production didn't use a gimbal on set, the rocking device traditionally used in films to mimic the rocking of boats and trains.
  26. Brad Pitt was paid $20 million for his work on the film.
  27. The Covid-19 pandemic meant that the film - supposedly set in multiple locations - was shot on just two soundstages on the Sony lot in Los Angeles.
  28. Lemons and tangerines (the fruits) belong to the exact same genus, family, and clades as one another. This could mean that the characters, Lemon and Tangerine, are in fact related by blood. Although rare, there have been multiple real world accounts of mixed twins being born to interracial parents.
  29. Antoine Fuqua initially developed the film. Fuqua originally conceived the film as a dramatic piece but, as it developed, it shifted towards comedy.
  30. The credited name for Bad Bunny's character--Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio--is his real name.
  31. Notable differences between the novel and film. The White Death is a character created specifically for the film and doesn't appear in the source novel. In the novel it is Minegishi's son who Tangerine and Lemon are trying to transport back to his father. The Prince is a male character, aged 14 and his and Kimura's appearance on the train is not connected with everything else that goes on. Ladybug's name is Nanao. Lemon dies instead of Tangerine. The hostess is The Hornet. The train doesn't crash at the end of the novel.
  32. The song "Hero" is a dance version of "Holding Out For A Hero" by Bonnie Tyler. It is sung by Japanese musician Miki Asakura in Japanese.
  33. While discussing Thomas the Tank Engine with Lemon, Tangerine briefly affects an accent similar to that of Beatles member Ringo Starr. Starr narrated the British television series Thomas & Friends (1984) from 1984-1986 and appeared as the first version of Mr. Conductor in the American spin-off series Shining Time Station (1989).
  34. Shot over a period of four months.
  35. David Leitch had to drop out as director of The Division to work on the film.
  36. It takes 28.4 seconds for Ladybug to retrieve the anti-venom.
  37. According to Ryan Reynolds, this is the second time that he and Channing Tatum made cameos together since Free Guy (2021), and this time he also went uncredited for his cameo.
  38. During the fight scene in the snack car, there's a bottle of Miraval wine on the counter behind Ladybug; made in Brad Pitt's wine estate in France.
  39. Sandra Bullock plays a character named Maria Beetle as in the original title of the novel in Japanese, MariaBeetle.
  40. One of the White Death's henchman on the train platform is dressed like Oh Dae-su from Oldboy, and carries a claw hammer.
  41. The fight scenes were influenced by Jackie Chan in the way that they blend combat and comedy.
  42. According to the filmmaker's commentary, this is the first film to enter production after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. While other movies had stopped and restarted, this was the first to have pandemic guidelines at the beginning.
  43. In the original script, Lemon does not survive being shot by Prince and Kimura is depicted as an alcoholic who neglected his son. These plot elements were changed late into production as the filmmakers liked Brian Tyree Henry's performance so much and felt Kimura wasn't sympathetic enough.
  44. When Lemon is talking about trains to The Son (played by Logan Lerman), he ascribes The Son as Percy the train. Lerman is known for playing Percy Jackson.
  45. The combination for the briefcase is 807 - as in production company 87North. (805 is shown as not working, and The Father needs two more tries afterwards - he is increasing the numbers one by one).
  46. In both this film and Mortal Kombat (2021), Hiroyuki Sanada plays a character who teams up with his descendent to confront the man who killed his wife.
  47. Director David Leitch wanted Keanu Reeves to make a cameo appearance as therapist Barry in the film, but it didn't happen.
  48. The song 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' is the club anthem of the English football club "West Ham United". A sticker of this club is on Tangerine's cell phone; that is why the musical director Dominic Lewis chose the song.
  49. Brad Pitt cites the fictional character Gilligan from Gilligan's Island (1963) as an inspiration for Ladybug's character and bucket hat.
  50. The original sixties world hit "Sukiyaki" was written by Japanese Rokuskue Ei in 1961 under the title "Ue o muite aruko" (meaning: Let's go with our faces up.) It was his response to his participation in student protests against the ongoing U.S. military domination in Japan after World War II. An Englishman bought the track on a visit to Japan and renamed it "Sukiyaki" after a Japanese dish, which was easier to pronounce.
  51. Second film to feature Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Channing Tatum the first being The Lost City (2022).
  52. Channing Tatum and Joey King played father and daughter in White House Down (2013).
  53. At the 27:18 minute mark, a bust of Jesús Malverde Campos is shown at the left of the screen. Malverde was a Mexican bandit, born in Sinaloa, and he is revered as patron saint of the drug dealers (narcos).
  54. The film has grossed $200 million worldwide on a production budget of about $90 million, and received mixed reviews from critics.
  55. The song "Power" is performed by the band Siickbrain x Pussy Riot. In the music video, the favorite movie of Siickbrain is replayed with women: Fight Club (1999) (with Brad Pitt); part of the song is sung by Pussy Riot in Russian.
  56. Engelbert Humperdinck sings "Forever Blowing Bubbles" during the tally of bodies at the Bolivia job, which is the anthem of West Ham United FC in the UK. Tangerine has a West Ham United phone case, and the song is used three times in the movie.
  57. David Leitch, Brad Pitt, Zazie Beetz, and Ryan Reynolds were all involved with Deadpool 2 (2018).
  58. This movie has some similarities to Pulp Fiction (1994), like the dark humor tone, a character called "The Wolf" and, most notably a couple of thugs; one black and one other white, who talk about trivial subjects while conducting criminal activities.
  59. Brian Tyree Henry suffered an injury to his knee during filming and was briefly dependent on crutches.
  60. The song "Kill Me Pretty" is played during The White Death's biography flashback as a rattling rock song. Japanese rock superstar Tamio Okuda performs the song while playing his original 1956 Les Paul Gibson, a replica of which Gibson issued in his honor and named it "Tamio Okuda 1959 Les Paul".
  61. Joey King plays a martial artist/assassin named Prince. In the same year she played a martial artist princess in The Princess (2022).
  62. Originally, Lady Gaga was also supposed to take on a role in Bullet Train, but due to scheduling conflicts with House of Gucci, she was unable to attend the filming.
  63. Second film to feature Logan Lerman and Brad Pitt the first being Fury (2014).
  64. The final film for Sandra Bullock before her acting break to focus more on being a mother. Due to the fact that she's rejecting multiple million-dollar roles, it is possible that this could turn into a permanent retirement.
  65. Ladybug says "When we are so quick to anger we are slow to understand." This is a paraphrase of lyrics from the song Witch Hunt by Canadian rock band Rush: "Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand."
  66. Zazie Beetz, Ryan Reynolds and Brad Pitt were in Deadpool 2.
  67. Originally meant to be released in April 2022. Finally released in August.
  68. Prince keeps saying how she has good luck. In Deadpool 2 (2018), also directed by David Leitch, Zazie Beetz plays Domino whose superpower is good luck. Zazie Beetz is also The Hornet
  69. This reunites director David Leitch with his regular cinematographer Jonathan Sela.
  70. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Michael Shannon previously starred together in Nocturnal Animals (2016). They did not share scenes in this movie though; their only interaction in this film is via cellphone.
  71. Hiroyuki Sanada and Ryan Reynolds were in the Wolverine Franchise.
  72. Zazie Beetz and Brian Tyree Henry were in the Series Atlanta.
