Best fantasy movie mistakes of 2016

Factual error: At the start Bruce Wayne runs into a massive dust cloud formed from the falling building. In the scenes that follow he and the other people have very little or no dust on them at all - they should be completely covered and choking on it.

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.

Continuity mistake: Strange is at home, looking for help on a video chat, then throws a tantrum by throwing everything on the table to the floor. Christine enters with food, and the reverse shot shows all the items and computer back on the table.

Gods of Egypt mistake picture

Continuity mistake: This is after the minotaurs have found Horus and Bek. As Horus is fighting the second to last minotaur, he breaks off both of its horns. In the next shot, only one horn is broken.

Other mistake: When Alice's ship is being chased, she orders her crew heel to port (turn left). Instead, it turns heel to starboard (right).

Visible crew/equipment: In the beginning where Amanda Waller is talking in a restaurant. While the camera focuses on her towards the end of the scene, they move the camera right, facing towards her left side of her face. Watch the wine glass, you'll see the crew moving along with the camera.

Factual error: When Apocalypse touches the television in Cairo and says he is "Learning", the next shot shows the rooftops with many smallish satellite dishes in view. This is set in the early eighties when satellite dishes for TV were much larger.

Continuity mistake: When Pete and Elliott return to their hideout after the ordeal on the truck is over, it is dark. Moments later when Bryce Dallas Howard arrives, there is a lot more light coming in through the trees and the scene looks brighter. This is in the space of five minutes or less.

New this week Plot hole: On a certain date in 2016, Jake enters Peregrine's Loop on September 3rd, 1943 where her children relive the same day over and over and all non-peculiars are completely unaware of the Loop. When the Loop closes and it becomes September 4th, 1943, the children, without re-entering 2016, travel by steamliner to London and enter a Loop set in a date six months prior to the date from which Jake entered Peregrine's 1943 Loop. The trouble is, this Loop did not exist in 1943, so it should have been inaccessible to the children.

The BFG

Continuity mistake: At breakfast in the BFG cave the bottle of frobscottle is taken from the table by the big bad giant when he says "I is taking this", only to show up again when Sophie clambers out the shnozcumber.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene young Cal has scrapes on his face after he misses the roof jumping with his bike, in the next scene when he finds his mother dead his face has no scrapes, and then in following scene he is running and has scrapes on his face again.

Other mistake: In the opening sequence, Mowgli is running at full speed through the jungle, accompanied by Basheera the black panther, who is mostly unseen until Mowgli finally collapses, exhausted onto the jungle floor. Mowgli lies on his back, talking to Basheera, and neither are breathing heavily or showing any sign of exertion following their lengthy run.
