* ShootTheMoney: The film had a $10.5 million budget, and $6.5 million of it was spent on the incredible special effects alone (in other words, basically the entire movie).

HAL has also made an unexpected appearance in the MassiveMultiplayerCrossover videogame ''VideoGame/LegoDimensions''- developed by Creator/WarnerBros (as a result of the Time Warner/Turner merger of 1996, they own the rights to this movie). He pops up through a rift in the ''VideoGame/{{Portal}}'' level, interacting with- who else?- GlaDOS.

* AllThereInTheScript: Although the film leaves it mysterious, early script drafts made clear that HAL's breakdown is triggered by authorities on Earth who order him to withhold information from the astronauts about the purpose of the mission (this is also explained in ''Film/TwoThousandTenTheYearWeMakeContact''. Frederick Ordway, Creator/StanleyKubrick's science advisor and technical consultant, stated that in an earlier script Poole tells HAL there is "... something about this mission that we weren't told. Something the rest of the crew knows and that you know. We would like to know whether this is true", to which HAL responds: "I'm sorry, Frank, but I don't think I can answer that question without knowing everything that all of you know." HAL then falsely predicts a failure of the hardware maintaining radio contact with Earth (the source of HAL's difficult orders) during the broadcast of Frank Poole's birthday greetings from his parents.

However, Clavius and Tycho are in the Moon's southern hemisphere, so the Earth should have been upside-down (and angled proportionately to the viewer's lunar latitude).
