The Lost City

Continuity mistake: When Daniel Radcliffe presents a special item he has put on white gloves, then a second later his gloves disappear. He no longer handles the item with gloves throughout the rest of the movie.

Other mistake: When the interior of the tank truck is burning, and Julian leaves through the back door, in the windows there are no reflections of the light of the flames. (01:22:45)

Other mistake: The zip ties were on Sandra bullock's ankles in the car but, were off when the car sped off, and he told her to move her legs, then they were on again when she was flung from the car and when the other character removes them with a nail file.

Suggested correction: Zip tie is always on her right ankle throughout the chase.

Trivia: The movie was originally titled "The Lost City of D," which was believed to be a play on the non-fiction book and biographical movie "The Lost City of Z." However, the movie was simply retitled "The Lost City." While no official reason was given, it's widely believed that "of D" was dropped because in recent years, the letter "D" has been adopted and widely used as a euphemism for the word "d**k," almost exclusively with sexual connotations. (Which in fact is joked about in the movie itself).


Trivia: Many people have noted that the basic premise of the film is very similar to the classic movie "Romancing the Stone." This fact was not lost on the crew, who threw in a few homages to it. Not the least of which being that the book tour in the film is called "Romancing the Page," and the fact that Brad Pitt is named "Jack" - the same name as one of the protagonists from "Romancing the Stone."
