The Last Starfighter was the first, yes the first, movie to do all special effects on a computer. The Cray supercomputer generated all the shots of space, spacecraft, etc...

The movie, as scripted, was originally set in a Spielberg style suburban area. The filmmakers changed the setting to the remote trailer park to differentiate themselves and their movie.

Wil Wheaton originally had a part in the Last Starfighter but his scenes were cut before release. Too bad for Will, but he does have the "Star Trek" fame as "Wesley Crusher".

Despite Wil Wheaton's scene being cut out of the Last Starfighter's release, his name was still posted in the credits.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie.
