Trivia

Before Elliot Goldenthal was brought in to compose the score, the film was temp-tracked from James Horner's score for Titanic (1997). Cues from the piece 'A Promise Kept' were borrowed for the original opening sequence and can be found on the Special Edition DVD.


Quotes

Aki: What's happening?
Capt. Gray Edwards: Dr. Cid is implanting the Seventh Spirit directly into your body.
Aki: Then you must be my spiritual support. Gray, how sweet.


Goofs

Deep in the Gaia crater, Gray tries to fend off Phantoms, and shoots a group of them to his right. After a brief cut where he stops shooting, he's pointing the gun to his left.


Alternate Versions

The DVD comes complete with a series of six animated bloopers and goof-offs.

  • Grey shoots through the hangar window, and then knocks himself out as his attempt to jump through it fails.
  • The animators go a little too weird with the scene where Neil drives through the building with the others. After they crash, we can see that the animators have placed debris (pipes, tools, stop signs) through their heads, and yet they continue to act as if nothing has happened.
  • In the Wasteland, Grey stumbles and accidentally shoots Aki. After realizing she's not moving, he nonchalantly sets his gun aside and starts running.
  • Aki drives her spaceship into Grey during the shoot-out in the hangar.
  • During the conference, Aki enters the room and smacks Sid upside the head.
  • In the final scene where Aki is solemnly carrying a dead Grey out of the Crater, she happens to sneeze, which causes both her and the dead body to break out into laughter.
