Trivia: The U.S military was asked at first to supply things such as ships, planes, and soldiers for the movie, so it can be authentic in a military sense.

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.
