A veteran assigned to extract Earth's remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.
There were ten days of location shooting in Iceland, where daylight lasted virtually 24 hours. Joseph Kosinski wanted to make a film that was very much based in daylight, considering that a lot of classic sci-fi movies like Alien (1979) and Blade Runner (1982) were shot in near darkness.
Earth, before the war. New York, before I was born. A place I've only seen pictures of. I know you... But we've never met. I'm with you... But I don't know your name. I know I'm dreaming. But it feels like more than that. It feels like a memory. How...
Jack detects a Scav beacon signal emitted from the Empire State Building that is sending coordinates on Earth to the pre-invasion spacecraft Odyssey. The human survivors tell Jack that they decrypted GPS signals to use this transmission of coordinates. This wouldn't be possible that far in the future because the GPS satellites depend upon ground monitoring of their precise positions and slight changes to their orbits from ground controllers to maintain the GPS satellite coverage. With decades of no human intervention the GPS satellites would have long ago drifted, become out of position, transmitted incorrect signals, and failed from old age.
During the opening scene, behind the Universal logo, Earth is shown destroyed by war and the natural disasters mentioned in the film.
