20 Things You Might Not Know About Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction was released in the United States in October of 1994. Can that movie really be twenty years old? Why yes, as a matter of fact, it debuted at Cannes in May, and was released in several countries before Americans saw it. Want to know some other cool facts about Pulp Fiction? Here’s a sampling:   

6. THE MOVIE COST ONLY $8.5 MILLION TO MAKE.

Five million went to the actors’ salaries. It made that all back in its first week at the U.S. box office (the film pulled in $9.3 million the first weekend of release).

20.TRAVOLTA DIDN’T REALLY INJECT THURMAN IN THAT SCENE.

The infamous scene in which Mia is stabbed with a very necessary adrenaline shot was stressful enough, so Tarantino took off some of the pressure: the needle was inserted, and then Travolta pulled it out. The scene was reversed in post-production so it looks as if Vincent Vega really is plunging that syringe into her. Movie magic!
