King Kong (2005)

Trivia: When Carl and Preston are in the car, after stealing the reels of film, they discuss leading lady replacement possibilities. They note that "Fay" is a size 4, but Preston then says that she is already filming something for RKO. The RKO feature they refer to is the original King Kong, starring Fay Wray.

Continuity mistake: When Ray, Robbie and Rachel arrive at Mary Ann's house, as the kids shout for their mom and Tim, the door to the basement under the stairs, as well as the den further up (beside the kitchen), are all perfectly visible. Later, after the house is destroyed, when Ray walks through the basement doorway, the walls, moldings, and so on are entirely different, and now there is an extra wall (perpendicular to the camera) to the left (viewer's) where there was none before. (00:35:10 - 00:41:40)

Trivia: When the children listen to a news report on the radio, in Professor Kirke's house, the voice belongs to Douglas Gresham, who is C.S. Lewis's stepson, and co-producer of the film. C.S. Lewis, author of the original novel, delivered radio addresses over the BBC during World War II.

Continuity mistake: When the Pevensie children leave Mr. Tumnus' home they hear noises outside, so Susan places her hand on Peter's arm and Peter holds her hand. Just before Beaver appears, in the front shot, Susan and Peter remove their hands, but in the next shot they're back on Peter's arm. (00:44:50)
