My Geeky Trivia

By Geeky Gem

 

Some of my favorite movies take place in the future where cars can fly, ships take you on holiday in to outer space and aliens are an everyday thing. Throw in Bruce Willis saving the day and you have the next movie that has become the subject of my geeky trivia. That’s right folks it’s the Fifth Elements time to shine.

 

 

The language spoken by Leeloo was invented by director Luc Besson and further refined by Milla Jovovich. By the end of filming they were able to have full conversations in this language.

 

The explosion in the Fhloston main hall was the largest indoor explosion ever filmed. The resulting fire almost got beyond control.

 

This is one of two science-fiction movies featuring Ian Holm in which there is a character by the name of Dallas. The other one is Alien, which stars Tom Skerritt as Captain Dallas.

Ruby Rhod was not the original name for Chris Tucker’s character, it was Loc Rhod. The original name appears in the script and the movie novelization.

 

In the future New York City, Central Park is the same size as the real one and is in the same place – but 100 feet in the air.

 

Volumes of two manga series – “Sanctuary”, by Ryoichi Ikegami and Sho Fumimura, and “Adolf”, by Osamu Tezuka – are briefly visible in Korben Dallas’ apartment.

 

When the President tells Father Vito Cornelius he has “twenty seconds” to state his point, Vito talks for exactly twenty seconds.

The hero (Bruce Willis) and the villain (Gary Oldman) never meet, nor do they communicate in any way.

 

Luc Besson wrote the original screenplay when he was in high school.

Korben’s termination notice reads, in part, “Notice of termination of your contract, effective as of today. Due to violation of codes, HFGY56, 74HVB, 00JGHY, MNH356585, MCNH485757, 0478N – your engagement with this company finishes immediately. For, and on behalf of, ZORG.” So it turns out Korben Dallas worked for Zorg when he drove his taxi, though this would have been implied anyway, as in the previous scene, Zorg gave the order for 1 million of his workers to be fired.

I love this movie and it never gets old, like Demolition Man I can watch it over and over again. Well that’s it, we have come to the end of yet another week of trivia. Come back next week to see what I have for you.
