Other mistake: At the very end, the Durmstrang ship is leaving, it's away from the 'bank', firing its cannon. And then we see the Beauxbatons girls leaving Hogwarts... Followed by Durmstrang students whose boat has already left. (02:22:00)

Visible crew/equipment: After Fred and George drink the aging potion and jump within the "age line", right before they say, "Ready?" and drop their names into the goblet, at the start of this shot the actor's T-mark is briefly visible on the floor, just before one of the twins promptly steps to that area. A bit of a second T-mark is briefly seen as well, to its right, also where the other twin soon stands. (00:30:10)

Continuity mistake: During the scene in which the Tri Wizard cup is brought into the Great Hall and then Harry's name comes out of the Goblet of Fire, pay attention to Hagrid.

Then he is further over to the right of the screen in front of the wall, and then back to his original position.

Trivia: Mike Newell decided against the original idea of separating the 734-page book into two films released several months apart, figuring he could still make it into a workable film by cutting some of the bulkier subplots.

More trivia for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Question: If I understand correctly, Lily Potter's "love" protection no longer keeps Harry safe after the graveyard ritual, due to Voldemort getting some of Harry's blood. Why, then, doesn't Voldemort attack Harry at the Dursleys' house in the summer?

Answer: Voldemort's spell undid the Sacrificial Protection that Lily bestowed on Harry, but the Bond of Blood is a separate protection bestowed if the person sacrificing their lives is a relative. THAT spell is still renewed as long as Harry keeps returning to the Dursleys until age seventeen. Voldemort has removed one protection, but a second is still in place.
