Sphere (1998) In the middle of the South Pacific, a thousand feet below the surface of the water, a huge vessel rests on the ocean floor. Rushed to the scene is a group of American scientists who descend to the depths of the sea to investigate this astonishing discovery. What they find defies their imaginations and mocks their attempts at logical explanation. It is a massive spaceship, undamaged from it's fall from the sky-and at least three hundred years old.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Barnes: Ask him for his last name. Harry: What? Barnes: I want a full name for my report. I'm not putting in my report that I lost a crew member on a deep-sat expedition to find an alien named "Jerry."
  • Barnes: If this translation is right this alien sounds like an idiot. Beth: That's something to consider - a stupid alien. Well, they must have them.
  • [from trailer only] Beth: Is there heat coming off this thing or is it just happy to see me?
  • Interviewer: I see you have a scar on your neck. Beth: Car accident. Interviewer: Were you drinking? Beth: Yeah - but I wasn't driving.
  • Harry: Are you a religious man, Norman? Norman Goodman: Atheist, but I'm flexible.
Movie Trivia:
  • Many scenes, like Harry and Norman's conversation about making up the ULF report and dealing with Ted, were completely improvised.
  • Joseph Hahn, the DJ in rock band Linkin Park, designed the sea snake.
  • The ending had to be reshot because test audiences could not believe that the characters could survive without spending weeks in decompression.
  • Director Trademark: [Barry Levinson] Ralph Tabakin (O.S.S.A. Official) has appeared in every Levinson picture from Diner (1982) to Liberty Heights (1999).
  • "Basura", which is written in one container on the spacecraft, is Spanish for "trash".
