Fifteen things you might not know about Twister

Twenty three years ago on the 10th May (last month), 1996 summer blockbuster, Twister premiered in movie theaters/cinemas. A trailer for the film can be watched below.

With that being said, here’s a look at fifteen things you might know about Twister – listed below.

Twister was the first film on DVD: Way before the tech-film enthusiast knew what a DVD was, Twister was being pressed onto the format. On March 25th 1997, Twister was the first-ever cinematic release on DVD. However, a teaser trailer and cast bios were the only special features included on it.

Twister was the last film on HD-DVD: Best way to go! Having paved the way for the DVD format, Twister would prove to be the swan song for its HD counterpart. The HD-DVD version of Twister was released in 2008. However, this would be the last cinematic release on the format. HD-DVD lost the battle to Blu-Ray

Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton were blinded: This was something we didn’t even though! Suffice to say the stars of Twisters suffered for their work. The duo were temporarily blinded by bright electronic lamps used to reduce the exposure and had to wear specific glasses in order to recover.  Hunt and Paxton had to have hepatitis injections after filming in a particularly unsanitary ditch1. Also! Hunt was reportedly left concussed after hitting her head in a stunt.

1: Referring to the scene which you can watch in full below.

The script of Twister was improved aka tidied up by the man behind Marvel Avengers films, Joss Whedon: Whedon, the man behind the Avengers films and more, also had a hand in Twister… However, he didn’t receive an official credit for his efforts. Whedon was brought in twice in order to improve aka tidy up the script.

The original crew of Twister revolted: This one shocked us when we discovered this. Suffice to suggest that there was much drama off screen as there was on the screen. Approxminetly five weeks into filming, the crew of Twister left the set in protest of director Jan De Bont’s handling of the shoot, which included him knocking over a camera assistant…Why did he do that? Reportedly the camera assistant missed a cue. Replacement cinematographer Jack N. Green also suffered…How? A hydraulic house programmed to collapse was mistakenly activated with him inside it. Ouch! We’re definitely going to read up more that particular incident.

Twister was recognised at both the Oscars and the Razzies: It’s no surprise that Twister’s technical team were recognised at the Oscars, picking up nominations for both Best Visual Effects and Best Sound. Actress Jami Gertz and writers Michael Crichton and Anne-Marie Martin weren’t so celebrated to say the least. Gertz picked up a Razzie nod for Worst Supporting Actress, the writers picked up the Razzie for Worst Written Films grossing over one hundred million dollars.

Twister became the source of an urban legend: In 1996, an Ontario, Canada drive-in movie theatre was destroyed by a Tornado just hours before it was due to screen Twister. Ooo eh! This above mentioned event got twisted into an urban legend in which the movie movie theatre was playing the film at the same time the Tornado struck.

The sound effects in Twister came from an interesting library: Suffice to say the flying cow is one of the most reconisgeable images from Twister, HOWEVER this wasn’t the only time that animals were used during the production. The sounds of rumbling thunder and roaring winds that you hear in the film were natural but not the natural you think…The sounds that you hear are that of animals, including a camel’s moan slowed down and play backwards.

The tagline for Twister was nearly ‘It sucks’: The producers of Twister initially had the tagline ‘It sucks’ in mind for the film. However, realising that a tagline like that may give the film’s critics more ammunition than they needed. Thankfully, the producers changed it to ‘the dark side of nature’.

Simple heading this time, life imitated art: Fourteen years after Twister’s release, a real Tornado struck the farmhouse where several scenes were filmed. The owner of the property, an ex-Oklahoma state senator later commented on how much the Tornado “echoed” the one in the film.

The trailer for Twister contains a shot not in the film: We’ll let you try and work out which one it is, let us know which shot you think it is in the comments.

Twister was the second highest-grossing film of 1996: 1996 saw the release of 101 Dalmations, The Rock and the first Mission Impossible. So… Suffice to say it’s impressive that Twister managed to outgross them all with a tally of almost five hundred million dollars. HUGE NUMBERS! However, that number still diminishes to the one film that did beat Twister at the box-office in 1996 – Independence Day (eight hundred and seventeen million dollars).

OH NUTS! Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s genitals made an appearance in Twister: According to reports, the cinematic release of Twister showed Phillip Seymour Hoffman accidentally expose his genitals for a split second in the scene in which he sits on a lawn chair and lifts his leg in the air. Producers of Twister were made aware of the error, the flash of Hoffman’s genitals was edited out of both the VHS and DVD releases.

There are several hidden film references in Twister: The oil truck that is seen flying around in the last scene of the film bears the same name2 as the company in James Cameron’s underwater film, The Abyss.  

2: ‘Benthic Petroleum’ in case you can’t remember.

Of course! We can’t forget ‘Dorothy’. You can find out more on Dorothy here, however Dorothy is same name as the leading character in The Wizard of Oz (TWOO). Suffice to suggest this isn’t the only time TWOO is referenced in Twister.

In Twister’s opening scene, the dog you see with Young Jo is the same breed3 as Toto in TWOO. Also, just before the Tornado hits her house, Aunt Meg is watching classic Judy Garland classic.

3: Cairn Terrier in case you can’t remember or didn’t know.

Twister features two cast members who would later appear on LOST: Viewers of LOST may already know that two Twister cast members would later show up on the island… Sean Whalen, who play Rabbit’s driver Alan, would appear on the show as plane crash survivor, Frogurt in three episodes. Jeremy Davies, who played Laurence in Twister, would appear on LOST as Dr. Daniel Faraday. It would appear his was a significant role.

17th June 2014 Coleridge, Nebraska Tornadoes – relive the Tornadoes in video

The above feature photo is a screen grab take whilst watching Reed Timmer’s video relating to the Tornado.

FYI: A day before, the Pilger, Nebraska twin Tornadoes struck.

The warm front which was accountable for the substantial Tornadoes on the afternoon of the 16th June, this lifted just slightly north on the 17th June into far northeast Nebraska.

Significant instability developed along this boundary given the very warm and humid airmass in place across the region. Terminology heavy to say the least this part!

By the time late afternoon came, an isolated supercell thunderstorm developed across this boundary which lead to it becoming severe quite quickly.

This supercell thunderstorm spawned a handful of Tornadoes, three of which were significant. A fun fact for you!

These storms were unique in that they were nearly stationary for a couple of hours, resulting in short and twisting paths despite long Tornado lifecycles.

We didn’t particularly want to make this a wordy article, however we wanted to give these Tornadoes a detailed introduction. Now you’ve read about it…

…In the videos below, relive the Coleridge, Nebraska Tornadoes that struck on the 17th June 2014.
