Trivia: Reportedly, the film was originally going to be titled "Escape from Mars," and was going to be a sequel to "Escape from New York" and "Escape from LA," with Kurt Russell reprising his role as Snake Pliskin. However, after "Escape from LA" bombed at the box office, the script was reworked, and Snake was rewritten into the character "Desolation" Williams.
Revealing mistake: Have a look at the shot of the rear part of the train exploding as the locomotive pulls away from it. If there was ever a more obvious model shot, with cheesy, jerky bouncing toy trains and Action Man (TM) dolls, then I haven't seen it.
Jericho Butler: Eutopia, the ass end of the universe. A penal camp for thieving cutthroats.
Melanie Ballard: Sounds nasty. But you seem to be holding up pretty well.
Jericho Butler: Yeah, well, I have many hidden talents.
