Suggested correction: The movie sequencing/reveal is shoddy for this. Prior to him uncovering the motorcycle and heading out he slaps the calendar on the wall where it says, If I recall, "Mach 8." the day before on the calendar says something like "training" or "physical test" or something (I honestly forgot). That happens the first day ("afternoon") as shown with him on the treadmill; he sleeps on-base to get up "pre-dawn" and that's when the admiral arrives and he takes off.

Suggested correction: You can see the sun setting at several cut sways during their drive, and Tara's room is getting naturally darker as the hospital scene plays out before Ghostface arrives. Then when the scene of Gale arriving in the morning takes place you can tell it's sunrise outside, meaning the events of the hospital took place overnight.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness picture

Suggested correction: If these moments were back-to-back, this may be a mistake. Problem is, there is quite a gap of time that passes between the two scenes... as in, almost 5 minutes of screen time, which might translate to even more time in-movie, as we don't know how long Strange waits to wake up Palmer, who is passed out when the scene cuts back to them. It's entirely possible and even likely that they returned to the mountain top in the meantime to see if they could find any traces of Wanda.

Continuity mistake: As the "lone wolf" escapes on the bike, there's a fancy swooping camera shot which tracks him, cutting to a shot from the front just as he scythes between two dark cars and past a police car.

Fallen picture

Continuity mistake: Before Abraham stands near the wooden cross, there are piles of wood and a blue/white water hydrant (?) behind him. When he stands and takes a step, only one pile of wood is visible. After he takes a few diagonal steps behind the cross and turns around, he is standing in front of his house that was not there. (The house should have been visible when he was sitting near the cross). (00:45:51 - 00:46:12)

The Contractor picture

Continuity mistake: The tattoo artist is almost finished drawing the American flag on the boy's upper right arm. After he wipes it and there's a quick camera shift, the tattoo is less complete - the stripes are bloodier, more jagged, and of unequal width like they were earlier. (00:14:31)

Family Camp picture

Continuity mistake: When the roasted marshmallow landed on the back of the camper's head, it was relatively flat and spanned from the middle top to the right top/side with some charred marshmallow splattered almost to the center of the man's head. After a camera shift, the marshmallow was sticking up near the right top of the man's head, was shaped like a whole marshmallow, and was still largely white instead of mostly black/charred. (00:35:19)
