Walt Thrombey: (to Ransom, shouting) How about some more cookies, Hugh? You want some more cookies? Hey, maybe Harlan left you a cold glass of milk in his will, asshole!
  • At approximately 22:10 Richard flips the letter (the one Harlan wrote for his daughter Linda) and you can briefly see light go through it, indicating the use of invisible ink to inform Linda of Richard's misdeeds.
  • Once the will has been read, Marta leaves and the family follow her. As they start to surround her, the camera goes from steadycam to handheld to show how overwhelmed she is, until she gets back in her car where it switches back to a steadycam as she feels safe.
  • The film secured US $40 million in funding at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September 2018.
  • In the scene where the dogs run from the mansion in slow motion, the trainer held both dogs by the collar at their mark on the side of the estate driveway. The other trainer stood at the end point for dogs across the lawn. On action, the other trainer stood up and waved his arm to get the dogs attention. On action, the first trainer released dogs giving the command "Go to." The dogs ran across the yard to the other trainer who placed pieces of kibble in two bowls for dogs as reward.
  • Harlan Thrombey asks Marta how she always beats him at Go, she responds "you're playing to win, I'm playing to build a beautiful pattern." This nicely foreshadows Marta's arc; while the Thrombey family members try to lie, cheat, and manipulate their way into inheriting Harlan's estate, Marta is the only person who repeatedly attempts to do the right thing even at her own expense. She ends up inheriting everything, thus, she "wins."
