A police officer joins a secret organization that polices and monitors extraterrestrial interactions on Earth.
For the iconic suits, costume designer Mary E. Vogt made an effort to avoid looking too much like The Blues Brothers (1980). She said she was inspired by Cary Grant's classic grey suit in North by Northwest (1959).
Nick the Van Driver:
As Zed explains Orion's Belt to J at HQ, he rotates the constellation Orion vertically on a screen display and zooms in, showing the Belt's stars (Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka) to be in a roughly straight line and of equal brightness. In reality such an "overhead" projection of the Belt would show a long triangle with a very narrow base (Alnilam is about twice as far from Earth as the other two stars), with Mintaka on the right nine times brighter than Alnitak on the left.
The animals and aliens used in this film were in no way mistreated and all scenes in which they appeared were under strict supervision with the utmost concern for their handling.
