- Actor Allusion:
- One of the more prominently featured artifacts that Jack collects is a set of aviator shades - 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 War of the Worlds.
- Jack is at one point covered in ash, after witnessing an alien device vaporize someone in front of him.
- California Doubling: Set in New York City and New York State. Filmed (for the most part) on location in Iceland. The Alien Invasion and subsequent war has turned the place unrecognizable except for some remaining landmarks.
- Dueling Movies: With Will Smith's After Earth.
- Similarly Named Works: With the 1994 film, the video game, the fifth book in The Power of Five, and the Kingdom Hearts fanfic.
