Trivia Earthquake Bird

When Lucy has a flashback of the children throwing pine cones and stones at her, she is protecting herself with a book. The book is an early edition of 'Pippi Långstrump' ('Pippi Longstocking') by the famous Swedish author Astrid Lindgren. The movie that Lucy is looking at the beginning is 'Black Rain' directed by Ridley Scott, the producer of the movie. Alicia Vikander said she has no problem with onscreen nudity, but she told the production crew on 'Earthquake Bird' and her other films that she will only allow one take during sex scenes so she isn't laying around nude in front of them for hours at a time.
