2012 picture

Other mistake: When the monk arrives with Jackson and the others at the gate leading into the secret entrance of the ships, the countdown to impact timer reads about 28 minutes. It is highly implausible that the group, which contains elderly and small children, are able to get to the top of what looks to be a 100 story staircase in less than 15 minutes without breaking a sweat. Once they are inside the hatch, the countdown to impact timer reads about 13 minutes.

Other mistake: When Johnny Cage is fighting Scorpion in the forest, after Scorpion unleashes his snake-like spear from his hand but before the camera switches to Johnny, you can see the spear move down and it appears to be coming out of his forearm.

Other mistake: When the Angels are in the bar in Mongolia, and Alex is trying to get out of the trapdoor with Ray Carter, a guy falls over the trapdoor entrance. When Dylan tries to move him, and sits down on top of him, the trapdoor falls in. Wouldn't that crush Alex and Ray Carter? (00:04:55)

Unstoppable picture

Other mistake: In the scene when Will finally stops the train, his phone beeps letting him know he has a missed call. He looks at his phone and sees the photo he presumably has associated with his wife Darcy. Later on, during the press conference scene, right after the first part of the dialog between Will and Frank about "corporate", there is a shot of Darcy at the press conference. This exact same shot was the photo used in Will's cell-phone earlier on. (01:30:20 - 01:31:40)

Suggested correction: Whether or not it is the same footage or just similar, it's not a valid mistake as there no continuity or factual errors involved, etc. It's trivia at best, if the two films can be tied together and there's documented reports of someone involved in the films admitting the footage was reused.

Batman and Robin picture Batman and Robin mistake picture

Other mistake: While fighting Mr. Freeze (and Bane) at the Gotham Observatory, Batman, Robin & Batgirl all have batsuits on, with silver bat (or robin) symbols on their chest. But while they are giving Alfred the cure to Stage 1 of McGregor's Syndrome, for some reason they have changed clothes before giving him the cure. Because now (other than the fact that they have all taken off their masks) Robin has on his original robin suit (with the red robin symbol across his chest) and Batgirl has on a gray t-shirt. (01:55:25 - 01:56:15)
