Around the film

  • Interview with Keanu Reeves 3 :
    – To Us, City Magazine : “For you, is this remake also a political film? ”
    – Keanu Reeves :” There are several levels and one of these levels is obviously political and social. What is certain is that American patriotism is a very powerful feeling. When America is confronted with something it does not know, it responds with violence and firmness. But that implies consequences, and what happens in the film shows that this method of “pull first, then discuss” does not work. “
  • Images of real political figures, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel , Pope Benedict XVI or Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin are included in the film.
  • In two scenes from the film, Jaden Smith refers to two films in which his father Will Smith played , the first when he says that the latter “would have fought the aliens” as in Independence Day and the second when he finds himself alone with Jennifer Connelly who remember I am a legend .
