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.
The Universal logo in this film is a representation of the Earth in the year 2077 in the film, and the text of the word "Universal" is rusted.
The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video.
