Site Update July 28 02: Before the main shoot commenced in Pennsylvania in September 2001 the crew were shooting in neighboring Fremont, New York on a farm owned by John Meyer for several day. They created a reproduction (pictured right courtesy John Meyer) of one of the most famous crop circles of all time in one of his oat fields, the 1990 Alton Barnes pictogram, which was imortalised on a Led Zeppelin album cover. Meyer said that after the crew left he discovered a diagram showing how the crop circle was to appear in the scene that they'd left behind. He's threatened to put it on ebay of the film does well!

Site Update July 20 02:

Desperate for her 15 minutes of fame UK crop circle "researcher" Francine Blake has been slagging off the movie to the UK media. Which is a bit rich, seeing as she admits that she hasn't even seen it yet, but maybe she's psychic!
Site Update July 14 02: It was bound to happen sooner or later, a crop circle that mimics the formation featured in the advertising campaign for the movie (with the addition of some Mickey Mouse ears!) has cropped up in a wheat field in Wiltshire, England (pictured right). It's in East Field in Alton Barnes, which has been host to many important formations over the years, including the one imortalised on a Led Zeppelin cover. So, is it real, did Disney pay the circlemakers to create it or is it someone's idea of a joke, as is the way with crop circles, you'll probably never know the truth, so just believe whatever you want to believe.
