The film went on floors last October in New South Wales, Australia. The makers also shot a few portions of the film at Lord Howe Island.

Though the plan was to shoot the film at the Gulf Coast of Texas near Galveston, the filmmakers couldn't get the permit due to safety reasons.

Not many are aware of the fact that the major chunk of the film has been shot in a tank using blue screens for effects.

Blake Lively has performed several stunts herself in the film including the one where her character breaks her nose.

In real life, the actress did hurt herself and the blood on her nose seen in the movie is real.

The shark shown in the film was made entirely through computer generated imagery which only got completed close to the start of the marketing campaign for the film.
