** Creator/ValKilmer's [[ThePrimaDonna behavior on the set]], combined with film's poor reception and bombing in the box-office, was the final nail to his career as an A-lister, never to recover.


* VindicatedByCable: Oh hell yes. Since the movie was a massive flop, but in the same time came with an AllStarCast and was still a competently made sci-fi movie, it very easily found its second life and dedicated fanbase via TV reruns.

* HostilityOnTheSet: Creator/ValKilmer and Tom Sizemore began feuding during production. According to reports, it all began when Kilmer got annoyed about a fancy exercise machine that Sizemore wanted shipped from England to the set in Australia. Eventually the two hated each other so much, Kilmer would not come out of his trailer if Sizemore was on the set. Many of their scenes together were filmed over the shoulders of photo doubles. Kilmer reportedly refused to say Sizemore's character's name, saying instead "Hey, you!" At one point, they got into a confrontation that escalated into them throwing weights at each other until Sizemore knocked out Kilmer with a punch to the chest. (At a crewmember's request, he avoided Kilmer's face). The two have never worked together again.

This film took the wooden spoon in that duel, coming far behind ''Mission to Mars'' in terms of box-office and critical performance (and that film was already considered somewhat disappointing in those regards), and even being worse-reviewed and less profitable than ''Ghosts of Mars'' (which did take somewhat less at the box-office, but also had a budget less than a third of this film was, simply, ''Mars''. But the release of ''Film/MissionToMars'' in the same year required a name change.and did better on DVD).
