On July 10 1998 Small Soldiers, the sixth collaboration between Steven Spielberg and director Joe Dante (after Twilight Zone the Movie, Gremlins, Amazing Stories, Innerspace and Gremlins 2 the New Batch) went on general release in the US.

With a budget of over $40 million, expectations were high on this film, but unfortunately they were not met. In the end the film barely broke even on it's cinematic run.

Having seen the film a few times since, I think it deserves a second chance. And by that I don't mean that it should be rebooted, but simply that it should be re-watched (if only because of the great use of miniatures).

In order to achieve that, here are a few behind the scenes stills of today's birthday-movie.

Stills aren't everything, I know, so here are a few clips behind the scenes of Small Soldiers.



And to finish it off: The Trailer of course...


Enjoy, and go ahead, give it another try. Who knows, you might enjoy the film.
