Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The sphere in Central Park is bright and glowing, yet it doesn't seem to be reflected in the windshields of the vehicles on the site of the landing.
  • In the final scene, the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge can be briefly seen from the point of view of Mrs Macquarie's Point - the same park used for the final scene of Keanu Reeves's other sci-fi-apocalypse story, The Matrix Revolutions.
  • WILHELM SCREAM: Heard when Gort breaks out of the military facility and the metal door crashes on top of multiple soldiers.
  • The orb was supposed to be filled with white limbo light, but Scott Derrickson felt the concept would then be unoriginal and changed the colour to greenish, a more appropriate colour for an environmentally conservative race.
