Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Although this was inspired by Chris Marker's classic short, La jetée (1962), director Terry Gilliam had not seen it when this was made.
  • The Army of the Twelve Monkeys is inspired by a passage in L. Frank Baum's novel, "The Magic of Oz", in which the Nome King and Kiki Aru convince twelve monkeys they will have an endless supply of food if they become human soldiers for them.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): The steering wheel in the taxi.
  • The Airport scene at the end of the movie was filmed at the Philadelphia Convention Center. However, the exterior shot of Cole and Dr. Railly walking into the airport was filmed at BWI Airport in Baltimore, MD.
