Well, there is an alternate ending, which is available on the DVD release. From Kotaku.com (there is a video of the alternate ending on the site): In the theatrical version, Eddie has apparently managed to kick the brain-enhancing drug, although we're never entirely sure if he's grandstanding. After Robert De Niro threatens Cooper's new political ...

This a conversation from the Limitless TV show (episode 6) not the movie, but it could explain his motives Eddie Morra: This rice contains a complete nutritional profile. Everything the human body needs. It can grow in the harshest environments. Places we need it the most. With a little more research, this rice could feed the entire world. Brian Finch: I ...

Maybe. At the end of the movie Morra is being threatened by Carl Van Loon in an attempt to gain political influence. Van Loon has bought the pharmaceutical firm that makes NZT and has closed the lab that produces it. He thinks this gives him leverage over Morra. In response to the threat Morra claims not to be on NZT. But he also claims that, when you ...

This was indeed done by the Russians who sent it to Eddie. These are the hands of the bodyguards which he hired to protect himself against the Russians. The purpose of sending Eddie the hands was to (supposedly) let him know there was no way for him to protect himself. Here are the bodyguards: You cannot see the tattooed "ring" on the Caucasian's hand, but ...

They actually explained how he got out of all these situations: Eddie Morra was at the apartment just before and after the murder of Vernon Gant. He also called the police. Gant was a known drug dealer and so it's not unlikely for him to have enemies. Eddie was his ex-brother-in-law, so it's not too strange that he would show up at his apartment. The ...

Ok, so at the end of the Limitess Film, it's true that it appears that Morra was not off NZT and has chosen the path of politician for an undisclosed reason that ultimately sets up the depate of his motives in the sequel TV show, which are not clear and muddied by Agent Sands and the Legion of Whom... But the idea of a "tweaked NZT" was mentioned in some of ...

So in summary to the original question. (Clearly they screwed up the plot a bit). 1. The movie ends when Morra is running for Senate for the first time and the TV series starts when he is running a second time. So the show occurs 2-6 years after the movie. Under duress, Morra told his former boss Van Loon that he biologically engineered a new strain of NZT ...

To make the world a better place, of course, make substantial changes. What a truly smart person would do, makes sense. Becoming the President would have given him the opportunity to do so.

Several endings were considered for the film. From: http://makeyourbookamovie.com/screenwriter-producer-interview-leslie-dixon-limitless-part-1/560/ : Q: How happy are you with the final film—what we see on the screen? Leslie Dixon: Well, I was in control of the script. I had it in my contract that they couldn’t hire another writer because I ...

Yes, He did. Confirmation from Executive Producer Craig Sweeny Speaking with IndieWire: “I do write whatever the weirdest thing on procedural TV is at any given moment,” he said when Indiewire spoke with him after the screening. “‘Medium’ was very strange and ‘Elementary’ had some very high-concept episodes as well, so I know how to inject that into a CBS ...

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (To be exact, at the junction of Morelos and Paseo Diaz Ordez, right on along the waterfront Malecon area – in front of Senor Frog’s bar, where a lot of the “Girls Gone Wild” videos come from.) The bigger question is why was that filmed there, of all places? That’s where the filmmakers wanted to go, it seems. According to locals, ...

Eddie kills the mob boss and drinks his blood, stabs a mobster who has a white eye in his another eye; and this eyesight impaired mobster shoots and kills the second mobster. Eddie escapes his penthouse after he pushes a piano onto the shooting mobster, aka the 3rd person. I do not think the movie has explicitly stated whether the third mobster has been ...

The movie, "Limitless," was closely based on a book written by Alan Glynn, titled, "The Dark Fields." While the names of companies and some details might differ, the explanation for the merger leak is explained fairly clearly in the following passages (289, 299): As it wasn't explained in the film version, it is reasonable to attribute the leak to the ...
