Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Ray's horror at discovering ash all over himself after stumbling home was influenced by September Eleventh survivor stories.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): After the plane crashes into Ray's house and he meets up with the TV Crew, the noise of the tripods is heard. The camera man, who is supposed to be deaf, looks towards the sound as if he heard it.
  • According to an interview George Lucas gave time.com ("A Conversation with George Lucas", posted Tuesday, Mar. 14, 2006), War of the Worlds is the first movie where Steven Spielberg turned away from traditional storyboarding and used a Pre-Vis system. He also stated that he had introduced Spielberg to Pre-Vis on Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): In the scene where Ray comes out of the basement after the plane crashed near the house you can see most of the walls have been blown away by the explosion. Most of the items inside the house thought (photos, lamp) are still standing upright in their original position without being burned.
