Trivia: It's not an accident that Wisconsin was chosen as the new South Pole in the movie, its position being 44N/90W, 44 being a number that Roland Emmerich tries to sneak into every movie he makes since his 'Moon 44' days. (01:37:25)

Trivia: Though named differently, all the state leaders (plus the governor of California) shown in the movie are of the same gender, ethnicity and general appearance as their real-world counterparts who ruled in 2009.

Trivia: "Farewell Atlantis" was the fake working title of the film, the same name as the book written by Jackson Curtis in the story.

Trivia: The frequency for the radio station 745 is not an error. It's like having a phone number start with '555' to prevent people from dialing or harassing the person who owns the number. Same with the radio station. They don't use real ones for good reason.

Trivia: It isn't adequately discussed, but if the new South Pole is in the middle of Wisconsin (44N/90W), then the new North Pole is in the neighborhood of St.Paul island(44S/90E), in the southern Indian Ocean. One can only assume they are referring to the magnetic poles, not the axis that the earth rotates around, otherwise Africa would be as hospitable as northern Canada.
