Other mistake: In the scene where the President dies, after the General tells everyone to hush and there are agents/bodyguards slowly approaching the door, watch the door to the room before and while it explodes. There are lines in the door which mark the way in which the door will be blown open. (01:25:30)

Other mistake: When those cute little Martians break into The White House and begin to blast away everything, a few of them get shot in the process. One gets shot in the helmet, and collapses to the ground, suffocating. A few minutes later, during the same scene, another gets shot, and likewise collapses. The animation of the two Martians collapsing is the same, just reversed. (01:09:40 - 01:10:45)

Other mistake: In the English DVD subtitles, during Jason Stone's reporting at the landing, his line about "many" is mistranscribed "may". (00:35:00)

Phoenix

Other mistake: In the scene where they are at the church, the church looks tiny when compared to the car outside. When the camera shows inside the church it's much bigger.

Revealing mistake: After the Martian who is dressed up as a women spits a finger in the fish tank a bit of the Martian's mask near its mouth is torn away. As she chews the nitrogen gum the human lips move but her real teeth don't. (01:04:20)

More trivia for Mars Attacks!

Question: I heard this movie was a remake or a compilation of different themes used in 1950's mars B-movie remakes. What are some of the themes of the movies that this movie takes? Such as, In Mars Attacks they use the music to kill the aliens I believe is a rip from a 50's movie where they use sound waves to down martian spaceships. What movie was that?

Chosen answer: While the movie is a parody of the 50's sci-fi B-movies, the film is actually based on the Topps 1962 science fiction trading card collection called "Mars Attacks!", which tells the tale of the Martians' attack.
