Passengers picture

Factual error: During the 31st year of the Avalon's voyage, the ship passes close to the star Arcturus, which is about 37 light years from Earth. Later in the movie, it was stated that the Avalon was moving at around 50% of the speed of light. The ship would not have reached Arcturus in the time allotted.

Hacksaw Ridge picture

Factual error: Throughout the first battle at "Hacksaw Ridge" some of the men are seen pulling the pins of grenades with their teeth. In actuality, the pins on the grenades (both modern and old ones) take at least 7 pounds of force to release the pin. If someone did that, they'd either cause severe damage to their teeth or maybe lose a couple.
