15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Hannibal

It was a mighty long gap between Jonathan Demme's Oscar-winning thriller The Silence of the Lambs and Ridley Scott's rather brutal follow-up Hannibal. A whopping 10 years to be exact. 

But audiences were more than happy to see the return of Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling and the film brought in an even bigger amount of money at the box office. Thirteen years on, it still stands out as a fascinatingly perverse film, with its fair share of unforgettable and horrific images.

Here are 15, hopefully less nightmarish, things you didn't know about the film.
