The film:

  • Box Office Bomb: As exorbitant as the final $44m budget was, this wasn't actually the all-time most expensive film at the time of its release, as is commonly reported (Superman: The Movie and Star Trek the Motion Picture both had budgets just shy of $50m, and Cleopatra was nearly twice as expensive if you adjust for inflation). Unfortunately, it didn't make even a tenth of its budget back, making it inarguably the biggest box-office bomb that Hollywood had seen until that point.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: This was the film debut of Willem Dafoe.
    • Jack McCoy is leading the farmers into war.
    • Wormtongue supports Averill in their attempt to drive the mercenaries back.
    • Ivan Vanko is the inexperienced friend of Gabriel. This also is the 2nd movie Mickey Rourke stared in.
    • Winston Smith supervises the mercenaries despite him disagreeing with the plan to kill 125 civilians.
    • Kris Kristofferson is the college friend of John Hurt and orchestrates the final - and much more successful - attack the civilians launch at the mercenaries.
    • The Dude is the best friend of the local sheriff.
    • Although only a minor role, this was the debut for Jake Slicker as well.
