* StillbornFranchise: Was widely expected to spawn a third film and perhaps even more movies over time, but its relatively poor critical and box office reception combined with Dean Devlin's aforementioned statements has cast huge doubts on the possibility of further sequels.


* CastingGag:
** Overlapping with RelationshipVoiceActor in the Japanese dub with ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' and by default, ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion'', being both works that deals with humans fighting an alien invasion: Creator/MegumiHayashibara (Rei Ayanami) voices Catherine Marceaux, Creator/MaayaSakamoto (Mari Illustrious Makinami) voices Patricia Whitmore, Creator/YurikoYamaguchi (Ritsuko Akagi) as President Lanford, Creator/AkiraIshida (Kaworu Nagisa) as Charlie Miller, Creator/FumihikoTachiki (Gendo Ikari) as General Adams, Motomu Kiyokawa (Kozo Fuyutsuki) as Julius Levinson and Creator/HochuOtsuka (Shiro Tokida, the Jet Alone guy) as David Levinson.
** The Spanish dub followed the same trend: Dylan was voiced by David Jenner (Kaworu Nagisa in ''Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion''), Julius was voiced by Joan Massotkleiner (Gendo Ikari in ''The End of Evangelion'' and ''Rebuild''), Rain Lao by Creator/NuriaTrifol (Maya Ibuki), Catherine by Marta Barbará (Mari Illustrious Makinami), Armand by Jordi Ribes (Kozo Fuyutsuki) and Captain Mcquaide by Tasio Alonso (Ryoji Kaji in ''Rebuild'').

* TroubledProduction: Nowhere as conflicted as the trope implies, but at one point, the production had to be shut down for a week due to the budget running out, with actors and crew essentially on standby until the studio refunded it.

Added DiffLines:

** The movie was expected to be the first of three planned follow-up films that would continue the story from the original. Sadly, the movie was slammed by critics for being an elaborate but ultimately empty spectacle, and its lackluster receipts didn't indicate much audience interest in the movie or its potential sequels. According to Emmerich, he and the studio are at least considering turning to the small screen to carry out the next adventure.


* SequelGap: 20 years. Roland Emmerich even justified by saying that in-between mankind would have rebuilt all the destroyed cities, and TimeDilation would allow the aliens to travel across the galaxy.

** One early story for the film was quite different than what ended up on screen: [[spoiler: [[http://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/guest-editor-roland-emmerich-answers-questions/ According to an interview with Empire Magazine]], it had humanity accidentally shoot down another alien ship, only to have the aliens land on the White House Lawn at the end of the film and say that they came in peace, which was supposedly the big theme of the film. Given how Sphere is introduced in the film, at least a germ of that idea remained.]]

While respectable by current standards,[[ToughActToFollow it doesn't reach the record-breaking totals the first film did ($817 million).]] The film also had the unfortunate timing to come out with a slew of other tentpoles such as ''WesternAnimation/FindingDory'', ''The BFG'', ''The Legend of Tarzan'', as well as being released in the UK around the time of the Brexit decision.
