[2] .DV cameras are much smaller and more manoeuvrable than traditional film cameras, which would have been impractical on such brief shoots.^ The filmmakers had the co-operation of councils and help from the police to clear streets (and a motorway), but only for short periods which would have been useless if not for the flexibility and speed provided by digital video cameras which were used to shoot the entire film.

.Much of the filming took place prior to the September 11, 2001 attacks, and in the audio commentary Boyle notes the parallel between the "missing persons" flyers seen at the beginning of the film and similar flyers posted in New York City in the wake of 9/11.

The front page created by the film makers carries a single headline printed in large font: "EVACUATION", with the sub-heading "Mass exodus of British people causes global chaos." Above the main headline, there are three small subheadings with page numbers- "Who will stop them?", "Refugee Crisis Looms" and "Dangerous Animals". Below the headline, the front page contains a list of London's boroughs with evacuation information on the left side with the main body containing the following smaller headlines, in order:
  • "Blair declares a state of emergency"
  • "Military ordered 'shoot to kill'"
  • "Government Check points overrun"
  • "UN to build giant refugee camps"
  • "Chaos at all London airports"
  • "Government call for calm"
  • "Military patrol waters around Britain"
  • "All roads around London grid-locked"
  • "Food supplies run out as shops close"
  • "Power cuts hit Scotland"
The mansion used in the film was Trafalgar Park near Salisbury. Many rooms in the house, including the Cipriani-painted music room and the main hall, were filmed with minimal set decoration. .The scenes occurring upstairs were actually filmed downstairs, as the mansion's owner resided upstairs.^ I loved the mad climactic scene in the mansion towards the end of the film.

Style and inspiration

.On the DVD commentary, Boyle and Garland frequently call it a post apocalyptic and horror film, commenting on scenes that were specific references to George A. Romero's original Dead trilogy.^ So yes, the pilot was speaking Finnish, and after watching the dvd with the audio commentary by Boyle and Garland, they confirmed that it is supposed to be the Finnish air force.

However, during the initial marketing of the film Boyle did try to distance the film from such labels. .Boyle identified John Wyndham's The Day of the Triffids as Garland's original inspiration for the story.^ Christabell ( fadeaway@hotmail.com ) writes: The film reminded me of the chilling BBC1 drama documentary Threads: Also, John Wyndham's book - The Day of the Triffids, which the BBC also took to cult status.

Reception

The film was a considerable success at the box office and became highly profitable on a budget of about £5 million ($9.8 million). .In the UK, it took in £6.1 million ($11.89 million), while in the U.S. it became a surprise hit, taking over $45 million despite a limited release at fewer than 1,500 screens across the country.^ No one has still explained to me why it took nearly 5 and a half minutes of screen time to show Banner being transported in a helicopter across the desert.
