The Postman

"The year is 2013. One man walked in off the horizon and hope came with him."

It is 2013. War has crippled the Earth. Technology has been erased. Our only hope is an unlikely hero. What begins as a con game becomes one man's quest to rebuild civilization by resuming postal service.

Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): When the Postman finds the old Zippo that was owned by the now deceased postman, he flicks the flint, and is surprised to find that it lights. Seeing as how that the deceased postman is now a skeleton, he has been there for quite a while. The Zippo fuel (naphtha) evaporates quite quickly, and after a few days the lighter will be useless unless he came across a bottle of naphtha.
  • Residents of an apartment building in Metaline Falls, Washington were paid to have their windows blown out during the "Hannibal at the gate" scene that takes place in Benning. The apartments were later repaired and cleaned up, returning them to new.
  • References to other Kevin Costner films: a mule is killed and Civil War battles (Dances with Wolves), and threatening to use a spoon as a weapon (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)).
  • Movie Goof (crew or equipment visible): As The Postman and General Bethlehem are starting their parley in the climactic scene, a cameraman and camera are visible on the rock face behind the General.
