Trivia: When Joe and Ford first reenter their home in the quarantine zone 15 years after the incident, in the foreground there is an aquarium with the word "Mothra" written on a piece of paper at the bottom. This is, of course, a reference to the 1964 movie "Godzilla vs. Mothra."

Trivia: Ken Watanabe is named "Dr. Ishiro Serizawa." His first name "Ishiro" comes from the director of several previous Godzilla films, Ishiro Honda. The last name "Serizawa" is the name of the character in the 1954 original film who invents a device to kill Godzilla, Dr. Daisuke Serizawa.


Continuity mistake: When Juliette Binoche is running for her life in the tunnel near the beginning of the movie, when the running starts you can see all men run pass Juliette and then she's the last runner. There's even a shot when she's looking back at the leaking water and is last, with no-one behind her. A second later she's in the front of the running group.

More quotes from Godzilla

Question: Why are they transporting entire missiles instead of just detaching the warheads (which are air portable)?

Answer: Because detaching them and reattaching them would have taken time, which they didn't have.

But, after the crash, they remove the warheads and transport them by helicopter and leave the boosters behind, as they only need the warheads.
