The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones picture

Revealing mistake: Early on, after Clary blasts the demon with a homemade explosion that blows a huge fireball across the kitchen and blasts out the window, there is no sign of anything being burned, not even the curtains. The kitchen is only in a slight shambles and there are small fires burning in isolated areas that never spread or char anything.

Thor: The Dark World picture

Factual error: In the final fight scene with Malekith, Thor falls through a portal that brings him to Charing Cross station, where the lady on the train tells him he has to ride 3 stops to get to Greenwich. Charing Cross is not on the Jubilee Line and so not directly connected to Greenwich - even then it's a lot more than 3 stops. (01:33:45)

Monsters University picture

Continuity mistake: In what is supposed to be a time-lapse scene, we see the Monsters University campus as nighttime ends and the sun rises. The shadows of the trees and buildings never change position as the sun gets higher in the sky.

Pacific Rim picture

Factual error: The coastal wall in Sydney is shown as being inside the Sydney Harbour (right next to the Opera House). But Sydney Harbour is not on the Pacific coast but a part of the Parramatta river, several kilometres from the ocean (where the wall should have been). So the wall is either not shielding the northern part of Australia or (more likely) the producers decided that the audience cannot tell that it is Sydney unless we see the Opera House.

The Lone Ranger picture

Continuity mistake: At the start of the train chase Tonto blows the whistle as he passes the bad guy who says "shoot him you idiot". The soldier opens fire with the machine gun and Tonto is suddenly back in front and passing him again. (02:03:35)

Star Trek Into Darkness picture

Factual error: After the USS Vengeance blasts the USS Enterprise out of Warp, Sulu says that they are 237,000km away from Earth, but the Moon is between both ships and Earth. Earth's Moon is about 380,000km away from our planet, so the Moon should have been way behind the combatants.

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Kitai left the tail section of the ship, he is seen walking through some leaves from top down. The camera crane shadow is visible on the leaves. (01:19:20)

Continuity mistake: Amanda warns the team that if they breathe a word of her secret life, she will hurt them "in ways that haven't been invented yet." The camera cuts to the crew and Savanna is sitting up, next to Melissa. In the next shot, Savanna is right above Ben's right shoulder.
