21 Little Details You Probably Missed In "The Fifth Element"
Leeloo-k at all these details!
The hieroglyphs at the beginning of the movie only have five lines each, while Leeloo's tattoo has six lines each.
The "present" year, 2263, is off...by about 49 years.
Also, this nod to the director Luc Besson's birthday (March 18th).
The rabbi, cardinal, and priest just chillin' behind Cornelius.
This adorable CAT DOORMAT in Korben's apartment.
Korben's empty box of Gemini croquettes, aka the snack that sponsors his (rigged) trip/mission to Fhloston Paradise.
Guess he was a fan of the snack anyway?
This "flesh yarn" coming out like spaghetti to rebuild Leeloo's muscle tissue.
The fact that this dude has really thick eyeglasses even though he works in a lab that can actually build entire bodies from almost nothing.
This statue of Atlas (left), which ls possibly a nod to the actual one in Rockefeller Center (right).
Perhaps this is a future, elevated, Rockefeller Center?
The "65 Trillion Served" marked on the side of the McDonald's delivery truck.
McDonald's actually stopped updating the number sold in 1994 at 99 billion, three years before the release of this movie.
Cornelius' wide variety of religious paraphernalia.
The fact that Korben taps on a mobile with the earth on it right before Finger asks, "What...you save the planet?"
Korben's copy of a popular manga series called "Sanctuary."
The Zorg corporation logo on Korben's termination notice.
The Brooklyn Bridge beyond Mr. Kim's flying boat/lunch spot.
These interesting design similarities to Star Wars.
Famous '90s model Ève Salvail, who was one of many fashion models to make a cameo in the film.
Jean Paul Gaultier designed the iconic costumes for this film, which probably explains why Ève and many other models appear in the film.
This super-subtle cat constellation as the ship takes off to Fhloston Paradise.
An image of wine representing the word "weak" on Leeloo's screen.
These "hieroglyphs" inside the hidden temple chamber which are really just blocky shapes and not Egyptian hieroglyphs (like the rest of the temple) at all.
And finally, this annoying light stick that Korben and co. just left standing there, thus ruining an otherwise perfectly symmetrical, framed shot.
Take a trip down memory lane that’ll make you feel nostalgia AF
