Mars Attacks (Tim Burton, 1996) Jack Nicholson, Pierce Brosnan, Sarah Jessica Parker ...
Another endless cast list. How did Burton talk them into it – and, even more to the point, persuade the angels to put lots of real money into a very silly film?
It's worth mentioning that part of the reason for making it was to refer to the work of Ed Wood (Plan 9 from Outer Space, 1957) and that of Ray Harryhausen (Jason and the Arnonauts, 1963), giving it some cinematic respectability.
