Tim Burton pitched the idea of the film to Warner Brothers by showing them the Topps trading cards that inspired the screenplay.
We should nuke these assholes with everything we got, sir.
When the Martians attack for the first time, out in the desert, Nathalie is lying on the ground and her little dog is running around, while boyfriend Jason is crawling toward her. As they reach toward each other and she pulls on his hand it comes off and the dog carries it away. A shot back to Jason's skeleton shows it laying there with outstretched arm ... except the hand is still attached. If the skin had simply peeled off and that was what the dog took, it would have collapsed like a glove, but the dog has a fully, dense hand that it bites into.
Special effects: No living animals were barbecued during the production of this film.
