A total of 85 prop machine guns, rifles and pistols to be used for scenes filmed in Hungary, were confiscated by counter-terrorism customs officers in Budapest, Hungary after being flown in from London. Hungarian authorities said the guns could be activated by removing the screws filling the end of the barrels. Hungarian law requires weapons to be deactivated only if the process is irreversible. The movie's weapons supervisor, 'Bela Gajdos', commented that a permit for the weapons had been issued by Hungarian police. Reports claimed that main actor Brad Pitt was "furious" at the seizure but producers said it had not delayed filming.
When the Lane family's Volvo is hit by the ambulance at the beginning of the movie, the car is then shown from the driver's side. It is clear that there is no one in the Volvo, and the person driving the ambulance is wearing stunt gear, complete with helmet.
Just before the infected come over the wall in Jerusalem, Gerry says, "If I could get into India, where would I start?" "India's a black hole." The lines originally named Russia, not India, and you can still read Russia on his lips. The editing of the scene fails to completely conceal the second overdub as well.
Whatever goes to hell, stays in hell!

In the film, nobody knows where the origin of the infectious outbreak started, so it remains a mystery to the audience. It is suggested that the origin was in India. In the book and in a deleted scene,it is suggested that the origin was in China.
How is the pandemic finally halted? What happens to the infected around the world?
The movie's protagonist, Gerry, remembers a couple of key moments when he was fleeing with his family & when he was behind the wall in Jerusalem: he saw a wino on the street whom the infected did not attack. In Israel, he saw a boy whom the infected did not attack and even ran around. What Gerry correctly theorizes is that those individuals were stricken with some sort of serious illness themselves and were not desirable victims for infected people; the infected were somehow able to detect the illnesses in them. The story's epilogue explains how the plague was finally turned in humanity's favor: a vaccine was developed from samples of diseases and distributed to the world's population. Other countries like Russia fought back with military force and were able to halt the pandemic within their own borders.
