Mistakes in cinema and rental titles

Alita: Battle Angel picture

Factual error: When Zapan speaks while his face is chopped off, the producers have failed to take into account the importance of mouth and tongue in producing speech. As a cyborg, Zapan could use speakers to produce a voice, but he isn't.

Continuity mistake: In the final battle, Wasp and Ant-Man are in the van trying to get the quantum tunnel operational. We cut back to the fight and we can see Ant-Man there too, fighting in his giant form.

Suggested correction: He needed to hot-wire the van. It's quite possible he could have left the van for parts (he's seen slamming a Leviathan to the ground) or to protect it. It also could have been an illusion by one of Dr. Strange's people.

Blinded by the Light picture

New this month Continuity mistake: Javed and his father are in the car and they need Javed's mother and sisters to help push the car to get it started. There is an ornament that looks like a traffic light hanging from the rear view mirror in the car, which can be seen in exterior shots of the car, but disappears when we are looking through the windscreen from inside the car. In the next scene after the car has successfully started, the rear view mirror ornament vanishes altogether.

Bohemian Rhapsody picture

Factual error: In a scene in 1980, Brian May is teaching everyone the beat for his new song "We Will Rock You." However that song was released in 1977.

Captain Marvel picture

Factual error: There's a flashback of Danvers playing the arcade game of Street Fighter II: Champion Edition in the bar, but that wasn't released until 1992, and she left earth in 1989.

Suggested correction: She's playing what appears to be a pinball machine in the memory. Look at the position of her hands, and also there's a clear image of the pinball machine's title that starts with "fligh..." behind her head.

Chernobyl picture

Vichnaya Pamyat - S1-E5

New this month Factual error: Dyatlov puts pressure on his subordinate, threatening to fire him. In the USSR it would be very hard for him to do so, because of strong labor unions. So it's unlikely that fear of being fired would force the worker to violate safety precautions.

Contagion picture

Character mistake: During the interview with Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Alan Krumwiede incorrectly describes what an R naught of 2 means. He claims on Day 1 there were 2 people infected, then 4, then 16, then 256... This is raising each number to the 2nd power (squaring each number.) But we learned earlier in the movie from Dr. Erin Mears that the R naught indicates the number of people who will become infected by 1 infected person. So to calculate the spread of the disease, each # of infected should be multiplied by 2, not squared. It should go Day 1 = 2, Day 2 = 4, Day 3 = 8, Day 4 = 16, Day 5 = 32, etc. (01:06:35)

The Lincoln Lawyer pictureThe Lincoln Lawyer mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Mick and Maggie are talking in the kitchen after spending the night together, Mick pours himself a glass of orange juice and sets the carton down on the counter. The carton is initially in front of the glass, but then moves to sitting next to it. (00:43:55)

The Lion King picture

New this month Other mistake: When Pumba is singing and they show him as a baby warthog farting in the water killing the butterfly, it is actually a baby Red River hog that is portrayed.

Long Shot picture

Other mistake: When Tom checks his phone and tells Charlotte that the president is looking for her, his phone is upside down. (01:30:00)

Mary Poppins Returns picture

Other mistake: As established in the original and this film, when the Admiral fires his cannon, everything in the house falls off walls and mantles, and everything needs to be caught to prevent them from being damaged. However, when he fires his cannon as Mary Poppins and the children are going out to have the bowl repaired, Michael has already left for work, Jane and Ellen are standing outside, and Mary, the children, are getting onto Jack's bike - leaving no-one in the house to catch the falling objects which would therefore all be smashed or damaged.

Missing Link picture

New this month Factual error: A blunderbuss is fired at a safe. The shot not only bores a hole into the safe but also blasts it out of the window behind it. First, a gun can do no such thing; a cannon can. (The film already establishes that the safe is incredibly heavy.) Second, the hole on the safe is wrong. It is gouged outward as if by an explosion from within. (00:38:10)

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood picture

New this month Factual error: Twice in the movie a Jumbo Jet (a Boeing 747) from Pan Am appears. The movie is set in 1969, when that plane had its maiden journey, but it wasn't flown commercially until 1970.

Shazam! picture Video

Factual error: Shazam catches the bus with his hands, but it lands on his hands and face by the windshield. This puts the entire weight of the bus being supported by just the front windshield held by Shazam's hands, plus the momentum of it falling from the bridge hitting him. No way the glass could support all that and not break. Especially since it already cracked from just a guy falling on it.

Spider-Man: Far From Home picture

Audio problem: When Happy is talking to Peter in the kitchen at the charity event, from the angle over Happy's shoulder he's talking but the side of his face isn't moving, from that angle we should see his chin move up and down.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse picture

New this month Continuity mistake: When Aunt May first answers her front door it opens outward. Every other time the door is shown it opens to the interior as it should - front doors always open inwards.

Toy Story 4 picture

Continuity mistake: When Woody is talking to Forky on the road, Forky's arms move up and down his body between shots, by his head, then halfway down his body, then back by his head.

True Story picture

Factual error: Michael's wife meets with Longo in prison, and she has an iPhone. The trial was in 2003, 4 years before the introduction of the iPhone in 2007.

Yesterday picture
