Trivia: When Kelvin gives Rheya the pill to relax, note that she takes a sip of water first and then puts the pill in her mouth. When director, Steven Soderbergh, asked Natascha McElhone if she did this as a part of her performance, as possibly a statement that if "you are created by Solaris that is how you take a pill?" Natascha was confused and informed him that was simply how she took pills. (00:48:25)OneHappyHusky
Trivia: I was an extra on the Highlander Scottish battle scenes and since Scottish weather isn't the most hospitable, all the extras got very drunk on whisky to keep warm. When you see the Scottish charge insanely, it's because we were all drunk, which led to us picking out the wrong weapons and kilts for the next days filming because no one could remember who had what.
Trivia: During the sequence with the explorers' huge submarine submerging, one of the computerized "extras" can be seen waving at the camera.

Trivia: When Megamind as Bernard is in the library with Roxanne, the book he is reading ("Megamind Unmasked") has a description on the back of a self-help book entitled "The Happiest Me I Can Be". This is the same book that Metroman read (shown later in flashback) that caused him to decide to cease to be a hero. (00:43:30 - 01:08:30)AJ Aneres
