The Space Between Us picture

Factual error: In the scenes where Gardner is messaging his Earth based female friend Tulsa from his Mars home, their communication is shown as being in real time. In truth, there would be minimum of a 4 min lag between messages due to the distance. (00:24:00)

Miss Me This Christmas picture

New this month Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Regina is looking at pictures and messages on her phone. There's no solid continuity between close-ups and wider shots, with the hand position changing suddenly most times. (00:01:10)

Dove non ho mai abitato picture

New this month Factual error: Emmanuelle Devos goes to the airport to get her husband and daughter. Their plane landed at 7 PM (18:58 to be precise) as shown by the airport monitor. They get a cab to a hotel downtown, and then there's a scene when she books a restaurant from the hotel room. She tells her husband, who just took a shower, that they need to be at the restaurant at 8 PM. Her husband says that there's no rush then, since it's only 7 PM. Of course that's impossible, the Turin airport is about 20km away from the part of the city they are driving through, which at that hour has also significant traffic; if their plane landed at 7, at 8 PM they would hardly have any time left to spare.

New this month Continuity mistake: Edmund and his business partner pull over in front of the hotel.
