Continuity mistake: When Ana is getting dressed for the masked ball she wears a black corset, later in the night, when Christian takes her dress off, she is wearing nothing under it.
Factual error: The Akula class submarine is an attack class submarine, not an SSBN (Missile Carrier).
Factual error: After John Wick's house blows up, he takes his dog for a long walk into the Continental in Manhattan. He lives in New Jersey and walks into Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge which is on the complete other side of Manhattan, crossing over into Brooklyn and not New Jersey.
Continuity mistake: When Pierce first begins to interrogate Caliban in the safe house in Mexico, a large portion of Caliban's albino makeup is smudged below his nose, revealing the actor's natural skin in his first close-up of the scene; after switching to a close-up of Pierce, then back to Caliban, the smudge has been fixed.
Factual error: The "Pirates of the Caribbean" films are set in the mid-1700s (http://pirates.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_Pirates_of_the_Caribbean_series). A trouserless Jack Sparrow is asked by another man, "Where are your pants?" According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "pants" as a shortened form of "pantaloons" did not enter our language until 1840.
Continuity mistake: During the final fight between Kong and the big Skull Crawler, Kong has the girl in his right hand. The Skull Crawler wraps its tongue around Kong's right arm, the fight ensues. Kong rears back and pulls the Skull Crawler's tongue and insides out of its mouth, still holding the girl. Point of view cuts to foreground and we see the Skull Crawler fall, lifeless, to the ground while Kong standing in background with his right hand open. Seconds later, Kong opens his right hand to set the girl down.
New this week Continuity mistake: Daniels' face gets splattered with blood but when she uses the radio to call back the others, her face on the screen shows no blood. In the other shots after it's there again.
New this month Factual error: When Sgt. Harper and his men are prepping their gear for the water mission, he gives Pvt. Ocre one of his rifle plates. But the plate he gives him looks like a steel plate that been wrapped in plastic. In reality, the plates issued to Marines and Soldiers were and still are ceramic Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPI for short). The plate seen in the film looks nothing like the actual ones.
Other mistake: When they hit the deer, the passenger side mirror and lower quarter panel was damaged, when the deer not only came from the other direction, but also seemed to be in the air when it got hit.
Factual error: Tony writes a "postcard" on the back of a picture to Adrian and Veronica to an address in Cambridge including the postcode. This scene occurs in 1967 (we see the date on the letter he is responding to) but postcodes weren't in use in Cambridge until at least 1970.
Plot hole: The film makes many references to the previous films and TV series as evidence of Batman's desire to be alone, but in the TV show and two of the films Robin has been established as his sidekick already.
