Trivia: In one of the trailers for this movie (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHWbzrCJ4nE), Michelle (Sigourney Weaver) delivers the lines, "A thinking robot could be the end of mankind. Destroy that robot! Burn it to ash." This is possibly a reference to her role in Alien (1979) where a thinking robot (named Ash) protected the alien at the expense of the "expendable" crew.BocaDavie
Trivia: Co-writer and director Neill Blomkamp filmed the gangster Hippo's hideout at his childhood home.
Trivia: The film co-stars Ninja and Yo-Landi from the controversial rap group Die Antwoord. Director Neil Blomkamp actually wanted Ninja to star in his previous film "Elysium," but Ninja turned it down because he was uncomfortable with the idea of doing an American accent in his first major film role. Ninja and Yo-Landi reportedly did all of the murals and much of the set decoration for their home in the film.TedStixon
