* CreatorBacklash: Andrea Riseborough has had some choice words about how she would often be directed to pose in the most attractive way possible, rather than anything that made sense for the character.
* DuelingMovies: With Will Smith's ''Film/AfterEarth''. Oblivion won out as it not only got better reviews from critics (still mixed) while After Earth was universally panned but managed to gross slightly higher. Not helping matters at all was Oblivion ($120 Million) having a smaller budget than After Earth ($130 Million).

* ActorAllusion:
** One of the more prominently featured artifacts that Jack collects is a set of aviator shades - [[Film/TopGun perhaps previously owned by a certain naval aviator?]]
** Another of his treasured artifacts is a faded New York Yankees ballcap, like the one Tom Cruise wore in the first half of ''Film/WarOfTheWorlds''.
** Jack is at one point covered in ash, after witnessing an alien device [[Film/WarOfTheWorlds vaporize someone]] in front of him.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Set in [[BigApplesauce New York City and New York State]]. Filmed (for the most part) on location in Iceland. The AlienInvasion and subsequent war has turned the place unrecognizable except for some remaining landmarks.
