Savvy moviegoers may notice a resemblance between this movie’s special effects and those found in the Transformer film. The reason may be that both productions have connections to the Hasbro Toy Company.

Battling aliens is not new to several of the actors in this movie. Taylor Kitsch took on Martians in John Carter and Liam Neeson was a Jedi Knight in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.
