Trivia: Soldier
  • Box Office Bomb: The film only grossed $15 million against a $75 million budget.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Kurt Russell hasn't said that he didn't like the movie itself, but did state that he only took another action film at his age because he wanted the paycheck... and only stuck with it after breaking an ankle and a foot because he still wanted that paycheck.
  • Real-Life Relative: One of the younger versions of Todd is played by Kurt Russell's son, Wyatt.
  • What Could Have Been: According to various sources, the film was originally intended to show the Battle of the Tannhäuser Gate (referenced by Roy Batty at the end of Blade Runner). The sequence was cut for budgetary concerns (and apparently showed the Gate as a "huge planet-wide wall of metal bristling with futuristic weapons"), and the only completed remnant was shown in the theatrical trailer.
