Did You Know?
Sam Flynn (Garrett Hedlund
) is seen wearing a stylized "89" on the back of his helmet in the motorcycle scene in the real world. This is to represent the year that Kevin Flynn disappeared and was mailed as a sticker decal to those who participated in the "Flynn Lives" viral marketing campaign in the months leading up to the film's release.

The opening scene of the movie takes place in 1989. Kevin gives young Sam two action figures, and the figures have white LEDs in them. White LEDs were not invented until 1995, and due to their very high cost per unit did not see wide mainstream use until nearly a decade later. See more
