Even when the car is lifted up and the destroyed passenger side is fully visible, there is no remaining trace of Denise when there would be

Elaine goes from wearing shorts to pants in the condo right after Walt is taken

Walt's mustache vanishes then reappears between shots right before he gets taken

The color of Elaine's pants change after Jarrod and Terry leave the apartment. Evidence of this is seen when Terry comes back from Walt's apartment

Jarrod's hair changes lengths when walking down the hallway before meeting Walt

When Terry pulls back the blinds and says "There's something down there," the camera cuts to a foggy street. One of the giant aliens is visible for about 2 seconds, but the aliens don't actually arrive until later in the movie

Candice's hair changes from being loose when she lies down on the couch to being tied up when she wakes to the sound of the air strike

Right after the aliens land, Terry walks toward the window and his Superman tattoo is visible on his right upper arm. However, in a previous scene, when he is walking to the swimming pool bar, the tattoo does not exist

There are over 800 VFX shots in the film, more than most franchise tent poles

Shot entirely on the new Red cameras with the Mysterium-X chip owned by Greg Strause and Colin Strause

The filmmakers shot a test trailer on Thanksgiving 2009, while the writers started developing the treatment, marking less than a year from the blank page to the big screen

The film was shot almost entirely at co-director Greg Strause's condo building adjacent to Marina Del Rey (but technically located in the city limits of Venice, Los Angeles)

Most of the large alien spaceships were designed from the different appearances of various low altitude clouds ranging from Stratocumulus clouds to Cumulus clouds

The film was completely financed by Greg Strause and Colin Strause without the assistance of any major studio

Filming only cost $500,000, while the digital effects cost an additional $10 million
