Mars Attacks!

"Nice planet. We'll take it!"

'We come in peace' is not what those green men from Mars mean when they invade our planet. This star studded cast must play victim to the alien’s fun and games in this comedy homage to science fiction films of the 50’s and 60’s.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • When people had their flesh vaporized from their bones, the remaining skeletons were either red or green. Tim Burton explained this had been done because the movie had been scheduled for a Christmas release. Also, the red and green skeletons were first seen in Beetle Juice (1988). When Barbara and Adam were in Juno's office you can see them with other ghouls looking at the screen.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When General Casey is in his jeep on his way to greet the Martian's in the Nevada desert, his jeep has 4 star flags on the front. However, he is only a 3 star general.
  • Diane Keaton was considered for the role of the first lady.
  • SPOILER: There were a number of scenes in the original screenplay that were never used, which actually made the film a lot longer and much darker. Among the cut scenes were: A scene in the beginning with Mr. Lee (originally, the burning cows trampled over Mr. Lee, killing him, as his family watches in horror); another where the Martians break into the White House (the White House decorator is decorating the Reagan Room, and the Martians break in through the window and vaporize him); an extended version of the Doughnut World scene (the Hispanic woman at the doughnut shop is trying to escape the building with Richie and some cops when the Martians attack. Richie gets out, turns around and sees the building burst into flames., and we see the skeletons of her and the police officers); the death scene of Dr. Zeigler; and the stealing of the translator device. An extended version of the casino break-in, including The death of Mr. Brian, who is trying to save his money and gets zapped, as well as many other gamblers getting vaporized; an alternate ending where Byron actually IS killed by the Martians and the Martians drag his body away. Planes fly by later, and kill those Martians with the Slim Whitman music. Later, during the award ceremony, Byron is remembered by Taffy in a long and sweet speech. Louise, Cedric and Neville are sitting in the audience of this ceremony, crying and wearing black.
