TRIVIA: Abigail Breslin's film debut.

The production used a new watering technique to make the corn grow faster, which the Delaware Valley agricultural college was then very keen to adopt for themselves.

The stories of the children's birth are actually the stories of M. Night Shyamalan's two children.

The artwork in the book about extraterrestrials was actually done by Writer and Director M. Night Shyamalan's daughter, Saleka Shyamalan.

Joaquin Phoenix replaced Mark Ruffalo, who had to pull out of the film due to a brain tumor. It was later found to be benign.

The crop circles are real, as M. Night Shyamalan doesn't particularly like using CGI.

Mel Gibson didn't realize Shyamalan was playing the vet, until the day that they came to shoot their scenes together.

Graham Hess was originally written as an older character. Paul Newman was offered the role, but turned it down, as did Clint Eastwood.

M. Night Shyamalan had the cast watch The Birds (1963) several times during production.

DIRECTOR TRADEMARK: (M. Night Shyamalan): (Philadelphia): The action takes place just outside of Philadelphia.

DIRECTOR TRADEMARK: M. Night Shyamalan: [Acting in his own film]
