Doctor Strange picture

Factual error: In the first scene where Dr Strange is preparing for surgery he uses improper surgical gowning technique breaking aseptic protocols. Strange puts on a mask after washing his hands, contaminating his clean hands by bringing them in proximity to the non-sterile environment of his face. Surgical masks must be worn before the full washing of hands. Another error is that he inserted his hands all the way through his gown to don gloves. Hands must never leave the sleeves and gloves must be put on with the sleeves still covering.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them picture

Factual error: A theater marquee is visible promoting the showing of a film called Tribeca Follies. The acronym "Tribeca" - an amalgamation of "Triangle Below Canal [Street]" - didn't come into usage until the 1970s.

X-Men: Apocalypse picture

Factual error: As the X-Men land in Cairo, scenes reveal the destruction Magneto is wreaking around the world, where it is simultaneously daylight in New York, Sydney and Cairo - it is possible for it to be daylight in two of these locations at once, but not all three. (01:46:00)

Nine Lives picture

Continuity mistake: The location of the FireBrand tower keeps changing throughout the film. 1:30 - the tower is in Lower Manhattan, south of the World Trade Center 2:55 - As Kevin Spacey lands, the tower has moved closer to the World Trade Center (side note - the shot immediately before this showed him falling towards midtown Manhattan, not the tower) 3:45 - the tower has moved further north towards midtown 4:50 - the tower appears to have moved back to the position it was in at 1:30. 5:25 - the tower has moved back to it's position at 3:45. 53:25 - We are given a view of the tower from their Central Park penthouse, and it has apparently moved much closer to Central Park (right next to One57 on the other side of Manhattan island) 56:45 - the tower has moved back down to its position at 3:45 and 5:25. 1:17:38 - I'm not entirely sure about this one, but you can briefly make out the two pools of the World Trade Center memorial, which would put the tower at its location at 2:55. 1:18:00 - the tower has moved to the exact location of One World Trade Center (therefore making that building disappear). 1:18:05 - the tower has moved back to its position at 2:55 (now One World Trade is visible).

The Jungle Book picture

Audio problem: In the beginning, you can hear the sounds of the jungle, including the laugh of a kookaburra. The problem is: The film is set in India and kookaburras are only in Australia, not India.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice picture

Factual error: At the start Bruce Wayne runs into a massive dust cloud formed from the falling building. In the scenes that follow he and the other people have very little or no dust on them at all - they should be completely covered and choking on it.

Assassin's Creed picture

Plot hole: After escaping from execution, the assassins still made use of throwing knives out of their garments as they ran through the city. These would have been removed from them before they were shackled in the cell.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children picture

Other mistake: When the children arrive in Blackpool, Emma tells Jake that loop entrances can be anywhere and that "the one in London is in a subway tunnel", but on the map of all the loops they were viewing previously inside the boat, there was no marking of a loop in London.

Suicide Squad picture

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning where Amanda Waller is talking in a restaurant. While the camera focuses on her towards the end of the scene, they move the camera right, facing towards her left side of her face. Watch the wine glass, you'll see the crew moving along with the camera.

A Cure for Wellness picture

Continuity mistake: Early in the film, Lockhart tells his driver to take him to a hotel, and they start down a winding Alpine mountain road before suddenly slamming into a deer. The Mercedes sedan goes off the road, airborne, into the forest, rolling many times before crashing down hard on its side. But, when the camera cuts back to the mortally-injured deer in the road, we see the Mercedes is wrecked on the road shoulder only about 30 feet away from the animal.

Warcraft picture

Plot hole: Durotan's clan is the Frostwolf clan, orcs who ride big white wolves. The problem is...they are riding those wolves when they are in the human world, but those huge wolves made to be orc mounts were not with them when they crossed the portal from their homeworld. Unless the human world has the same wolves and they managed to tame them in record time, it's inexplicable.

New this month Suggested correction: Once the portal opens hordes of orcs start running into the portal. Just because you didn't see any wolves among them doesn't mean there weren't any. They obviously brought their wolves with them. They probably entered through last along with some food and tools they might need.

Pete's Dragon picture

Continuity mistake: When Pete and Elliott return to their hideout after the ordeal on the truck is over, it is dark. Moments later when Bryce Dallas Howard arrives, there is a lot more light coming in through the trees and the scene looks brighter. This is in the space of five minutes or less.
