Movie Trivia:
  • The abbreviation "ID4" was invented due to undisclosed legal problems (long since resolved) with the title "Independence Day".
  • Bill Pullman used the memory of a decayed tooth which was pulled from his mouth in order to come up with a terrified expression when speaking with the alien invaders.
  • To achieve the effect of flames traveling down the street, they a had miniature tilted upward and had the explosives at the bottom with a camera mounted on the top.
  • Two scenes, one where a replica of the bus from Speed (1994/I) crashes through a billboard for the movie Stargate (1994), also directed by Roland Emmerich, and one where a theater whose marquee reads "Coming Soon: Independence Day" is destroyed, were filmed but didn't appear in the final cut.
  • In the Special Edition, during the scenes where David is searching for his ex-wife's telephone number, his computer screen displays humorous street names such as "Heresheis Avenue."
