The store that Casey visits named Blast From The Past has the same name as the one Marty McFly visits in Back to the Future (1985). See more »
Eddie Newton bails Casey out of jail a few hours after she is arrested. Casey presumably would've faced federal charges for attempting to break into a federal facility. In the United States, bail in federal cases is determined in a bail hearing by a magistrate in federal district court, and generally must be paid in cash. State criminal charges often have prescribed bail that can be paid by a bondsman soon after arrest. Despite his connections at NASA, it's highly unlikely that Eddie could've arranged a bail hearing and paid her bail in a matter of hours in the middle of the night. She more likely would've been held until the next business day to allow time for the hearing and payment arrangements. Conversely, if Eddie had convinced NASA police not to charge her yet, there would be no reason for him to tell her that he'd bailed her out. See more »

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
My quick rating - 6,0/10. Unfairly dogged in the theater but it does have its flaws. The story itself is contrived and really doesn't try to explain itself to well. Then again, it is fantasy ad summer blockbuster so why am I bothering being critical. The movie looks fabulous as expected (200 million in budget will do that) so at least the movie broke even (not even close with marketing). Britt Robinson(female lead) does a very good job in her acting role and is very believable as the apprehensive young kid. Nice to see some good wholesome kid sci fi that still entertains adults, this is why I think it didn't get a fair shake. Parents should've been rushing their kids to a little more mature sci fi film but I guess the marketing just didn't hit the right audience. To be honest, by the marketing, I personally saw it as another George Clooney vehicle which it wasn't. Oh well,still an enjoyable film that stands up even with its flaws.
