More Movie Taglines:
- On Jupiter's moon something deadly is happening
- On Io, one of Jupiters moons, Sean Connery is the law.
- Even in space, the ultimate enemy is man.
- On Jupiter's moon he's the only law.
- Marshal William T. O'Neil: Are you Dr. Lazarus? Lazarus: Yes. Take two aspirin and call me in the morning. That's a doctor joke.
Marshal William T. O'Neil: I'd like a report of all the incidents in the last six months. I'd like it soon, or I might just kick your nasty ass all over this room. That's a marshal joke.
Lazarus: Such a smart piece of equipment, and a wreck like me trying to run it.
Lazarus: You know, you haven't your medical all-star here. Company doctors are like ship's doctors. Most are just one shuttle flight ahead of a malpractice suit.
Security Officer Slater: Some cupcake named "Cane" decided that he didn't need an environment suit. They're still sponging him off the elevator walls.
- The mining company is referred by the name "Con-Amalgamate". This is the same name given to the company that manufactured the defective life support system mentioned in Capricorn One (1977) (also directed by Peter Hyams)
Director Trademark: [Peter Hyams] a character named Spota.
The tag-line "Even in space, the ultimate enemy is man" is a reference to the previous success of Alien (1979).
The role of Dr. Lazarus was first offered to Colleen Dewhurst.
One of the few films to be released theatrically with the "Megasound" sound system format. Megasound was a movie theater sound system created by Warner Bros in the early 1980s. It was used to enhance the premiere engagements of a handful of Warner features. Theaters equipped for Megasound had additional speakers mounted on the left, right and rear walls of the auditorium. Selected soundtrack events with lots of low-frequency content (thuds, crashes, explosions, etc) were directed to these speakers at very high volume, creating a visceral effect intended to thrill the audience.
