Alterations - S1-E7

Other mistake: When Max drives Charmaine to the surgical clinic, watch the background. In the first few shots, they are driving through some sort-of suburban neighborhood if you look out the windows, but suddenly when the camera cuts outside of the car, they're in a parking lot for the clinic, nowhere near the neighborhood they were literally just driving through. There was no time-jump as they are having a continuous conversation through the entire scene.

You Becoming You - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: In season one, Tara's neighbor Don's backyard was shown in the episode "Transition" - it had a patio and in-ground pool. This episode show's Don's backyard again when Tara and Max have sex, and it's completely different, indicating the scenes were filmed in different locations. Most noticeable is the fact that the in-ground-pool and patio are missing and the fences are different, with plants having grown all over them. While some time has passed since it was last seen, dialog in this season indicates that Don hasn't made any changes to the house or property in years, plus the fact that removing a pool and patio are relatively long and laborious processes, so the backyard should not look as fully developed as it does even if he did somehow remove them and replace the fence in the meantime.

Trivia: Alice is the only one of the "alters" whose name does not appear in the opening credits. Buck's name appears on his motorcycle, while T's name appears as a tattoo on her rear-end.

Revolution - S1-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When Tara gets into her car after seeing her therapist with Max in the beginning of the episode, watch closely when the camera moves up to the side of Tara's car. If you look at the bottom-left corner of the screen, you can see the top of a crew-member's face and some camera equipment reflected in the driver's side window right before the scene changes.

The Full F**k You Finger - S3-E3

Trivia: This episode features a subplot involving an earthquake hitting Japan. Tragically, a month before the episode was released in April, 2011, an earthquake and subsequent tsunami actually did hit Japan, killing over 15,000 people. Because the episode had been filmed months prior and the fact that there was not enough time to re-assemble the cast and shoot new material to replace references to the earthquake, network Showtime was forced to add a disclaimer to the episode clarifying the circumstances of the story as being a tragic coincidence.

Halloween (2018)

Trivia: This will be the first film in the franchise with direct involvement from series creator John Carpenter since 1982's "Halloween III: Season of the Witch." Carpenter will serve as an executive producer on the film, in addition to writing the film's musical score. Carpenter, dissatisfied with the prior sequels and the 2007 remake, sought out to return to the series and guide the direction this film went in.

Halloween (2018)

Trivia: It was confirmed that this movie will only be a direct sequel to the original film, and will eschew the continuity of every previous sequel, including any references to Laurie Strode being Michael Myers' sister, as this was not a part of the first film.

Halloween (2018)

Trivia: When it was originally reported that Danny McBride would be a co-writer on the film, many assumed it was referring to the screenwriter Danny McBride, whom wrote several entries in the "Underworld" film series. It wasn't until shortly after that it was revealed that the Danny McBride co-writing the film was indeed the comedy actor best known for films including "Pineapple Express" and "This is the End." McBride is a huge fan of the original film, and together with director David Gordon Green, wanted to make a proper sequel to the original film after finding the other sequels hit-and-miss.

Trivia: Despite being the third film, this sequel was actually filmed second. At the point it went into filming, Wesley Snipes, who starred in the original, hadn't signed on for a sequel, so his role was recast. During production, Snipes signed on to return to the series and a new sequel was commissioned, while this film was shelved while producers figured out what to do with it. It was going to be re-titled at one point and any references to the previous films cut-out to make it stand alone, but after "The Art of War II: Betrayal" became a hot-seller, this film was quickly released as the "third" entry in the series.

Rasen (1998)

Trivia: This sequel was filmed and released at the same time in 1998 as the first film - "Ringu." As the films were based on an incredibly popular book series, the studio thought that releasing the first movie and its sequel simultaneously would drastically increase profits - fans could see the first movie, then immediately pay for another ticket to see the sequel right after. Unfortunately, this tactic backfired. Few people saw this sequel in theaters and it garnered poor word-of-mouth, despite the fact the first film became incredibly popular. As a result, one year later, a new sequel - "Ringu 2" was produced that ignored this film entirely.

Trivia: George Lucas originally wanted to set portions of the film in a haunted mansion where Indy would encounter various ghosts and specters, but director Steven Spielberg protested, as he had made "Poltergeist" a few years earlier and didn't want to repeat the same scares and imagery over again in an Indiana Jones film. Other early ideas had Indy searching for the fountain of youth and encountering the Chinese mythological figure the Monkey King.

Revealing mistake: When Walter Donovan is dying after drinking from the wrong cup, watch the over-the-shoulder shot where we see his hair grow long suddenly - for some reason, this shot was filmed in reverse, as the fire coming from the candles/torches behind Elsa is not burning upwards, but appears to be "sucking" back downwards.

Trivia: Director Stephen Norrington had such a negative experience working on this film that he retired from directing and semi-retired from the industry as a whole, refusing to helm another major motion picture. True to his word, in the fifteen years that have passed since the release of "LXG," Norrington has not directed another film, and has only worked on five other credited projects (mainly short films and low-budget features), and even then, only in the effects departments as a sculptor and digital artist.

Blade: Trinity (2004)

Trivia: The first major studio film directed by David S. Goyer, whom wrote all three movies. Another director was lined up, but fired early in production, and Goyer was selected as a last-minute replacement. Series star Wesley Snipes, weary of Goyer's lack of experience and wanting a veteran director, protested, which was the start of the behind-the-scenes drama mentioned elsewhere in the trivia.

Blade: Trinity (2004)

Revealing mistake: Throughout the final fight-scene, anytime Wesley Snipes' face is not on camera, you can often tell that Blade is played by a stunt-double. The double is a bit thinner than Snipes, which gives it away.

Blade: Trinity (2004)

Trivia: Despite the production troubles on this film, series star Wesley Snipes has long lobbied to get a fourth film made to redeem the series after this third film was met with a generally lukewarm reception from fans. Though he tried for a number of years, the rights to the character eventually reverted back to Marvel, whom have hinted at a potential reboot as opposed to a fourth film.

Blade: Trinity (2004)

Trivia: On the DVD/Blu-Ray, there's an alternate ending featuring a werewolf. In the scene, director David S. Goyer appears in a cameo as the casino-goer that Hannibal King punches and throws onto a table.

Blade II (2002)

Trivia: "Blade II" is the only film Guillermo del Toro has directed where he was not a credited writer. (Though he did do some uncredited touch-up work, mainly on the dialogue).
