Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

New this month Continuity mistake: When Hobbs and Shaw are in the glass room meeting, Hobbs throws a chair that's next to the table at the glass towards the men on the other side. That chair lands on the floor near the glass, but when the camera pans after that, it shows Hobbs' hand on the backside of that same chair, and the chair is still at the table.

Hobbs & Shaw (2019)

New this month Factual error: In the helicopter scene, the main villain yells at the pilot to climb. He then goes up and throws the pilot out and takes over. It is a common misconception that helicopter pilots sit in the same seat as airline pilots (left seat). Helicopter pilots sit in the right seat. He just threw out someone that wasn't the pilot.

Sicario (2015)

Character mistake: Just before coming back to the U.S. at the border, Forsing takes his hand off the trigger to unlock the truck door. For anyone properly trained the trigger hand will always stay on the weapon - the forehand would be used for everything else.
