A veteran assigned to extract Earth's remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.
In the beginning of the film, during Jack's voiceover detailing the war with the Scavs, a destroyed tower structure is visible. This is the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Also seen in this sequence are the ruins of the Cyclone rollercoaster and the Wonder Wheel at Coney Island, the Pentagon, Washington Monument, and the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., and an airport half submerged in the ocean with wrecked planes in the water and on land.
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...
The design of the bubble ship resembles a helicopter including a tail rotor, however a tail rotor is provided to counteract the spin that would be caused by the main rotor in a helicopter. The bubble ship has no main rotor, so there would be no need for a tail rotor to counteract spin; however, a thruster on the end of the tail pylon would supply much more maneuverability than using the inboard engines to spin the ship.
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.
