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
  • In the sequence where Kevin Costner's character names Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) as President, he continues with another reference to The Beatles by telling the assembly "It's getting better. Getting better all the time" from the band's song "Getting Better".
  • The area of Metaline Falls, Washington (where a lot of the filming took place) did not have much to offer for housing film crews (like hotels) so many of the crew stayed at local campsites, rented rooms from locals. Kevin Costner rented a house from a resident of the nearby town of Ione, Washington. The stars and crew treated the locals very kindly even when approached for autographs when eating in local restaurants.
  • Another Kevin Costner film reference: Costner's character being asked for his "seed," as in Waterworld.
  • Behind-the-scenes images from location shooting were broadcast live over the Internet.
