Best movie mistakes of 2017

Dunkirk picture

Factual error: When the returned soldiers are on the train at the end of the film, it's an open plan post-war British Rail Mark I type, which where built from around 1950. Also the blue upholstery on the seats looks to be the corporate blue introduced by British Rail in the 1960s, used by the preserved railway owning the stock, and not what would have featured in Southern Railway carriages of the time. The carriages also have horizontally-sliding windows, which are far more contemporary than wartime trains, which had windows with a much larger vertical opening, held in place by a leather strap.

Wonder Woman picture

Continuity mistake: In the village scene, Diana is holding a mug of beer, looks at it, and places it on the wall beside her. In the next shot, Steve asks her to dance - she has the beer back in her hand, and puts it down a second time.

creep161
Fifty Shades Darker picture

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.

Baywatch picture

Continuity mistake: Zac Efron has no shirt on while lifting and competing against Dwayne Johnson, then the people fall and jump off the pier - he hops on the motorcycle and in the next shot he has a green shirt on.

Lee W Morley
The Space Between Us picture

Factual error: In the scenes where Gardner is messaging his Earth based female friend Tulsa from his Mars home, their communication is shown as being in real time. In truth, there would be minimum of a 4 min lag between messages due to the distance.

Jizzmopper
Fast & Furious 8 picture

Factual error: The Akula class submarine is an attack class submarine, not an SSBN (Missile Carrier).

John Wick: Chapter 2 picture

Continuity mistake: In the opening scenes where he gets his mustang back, he hits the guy who comes over the roof and busts the windshield, but in the very next shot the windshield is pristine.

The Mummy picture

Factual error: Set is not the god of death, he is the god of chaos, Anubis is the god of death.

CHIPS picture

Other mistake: Near the start of the movie Jon indicates that he has titanium in his right arm, but towards the end of the movie the bullet ricochets off his left arm.

mld172
Alien: Covenant picture

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.

A Dog's Purpose picture

Continuity mistake: When Bailey, or "buddy" first finds Hannah at his last life, Hannah says that he is not a stray because he has a collar. In the initial shot of the dog it does not have a collar on, but when she reaches to see the tag it appears.

Spider-Man: Homecoming picture

New this month Factual error: The ferry splits in half down the middle...enough so the water is flooding in dramatically as the split grows. There is no possible way that the two halves of the ferry could have remained afloat like that. It would have sunk immediately. Then, as Iron Man "welds" the two halves back together, the ferry is afloat at the same waterline as before the incident...certainly not feasible with all the water it took on.

Kit Sullivan
Beauty and the Beast picture

Continuity mistake: When Gaston and Le Fou approach the village on horseback, they watch Belle through a telescope. In the shot from behind, Le Fou has to stretch out to reach the telescope when Gaston passes it across and his fingers barely touch the end of it, but when the view changes to the front the horses are closer together and he is holding the telescope firmly in the middle.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales picture

Plot hole: During the execution scene when Carina is on the gallows with a noose around her neck, the plot depends on Henry being able to get to her before she is dropped through the trap door. However, there is so much slack in the hanging rope that during the chaotic fighting, when Carina is left unattended, she could easily have stepped off the small trap door and onto the solid flooring that is inches away. Instead, she continues standing there, waiting to be rescued.

raywest
American Made picture

New this month Factual error: Barry Seal is taken with the guys of the drug-kartel in a yellow helicopter. There is an internet address on the side of the helicopter, half covered by the door, entirely inappropriate for the timeframe of the early 80's.

The Circle picture

Continuity mistake: When Mae and Ty meet, when Ty asks what does she think of this, Ty begins removing the lid from the bottle of wine he is holding, but in the next shot, the lid has suddenly been removed from the bottle, with his hand nowhere near it.

Logan (2017)

Logan picture

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.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage picture

Factual error: When Xander Cage is chasing Xiang on the dirt bikes, he lets his bike get entirely submerged, which would flood the engine.

19

Rings (2017)

Rings picture

Factual error: The interior of the 747 is too narrow.

AAL117
Despicable Me 3 picture

Plot hole: After the car is destroyed, Gru is knocked unconscious and Dru enters Balthazar Bratt's robot to destroy the robot's core from the inside. Once Gru wakes up, Balthazar attempts to kill him with the robot's laser and Dru destroys the core causing the robot to collapse. Gru then yells out "Dru!" and runs over to the wreckage of the robot to try and find him. The problem with this is that since Gru was knocked unconscious before Dru entered the robot, and Gru knew nothing of Dru's plan to disable the robot's core, there is no way for him to know that Dru was inside the robot.

Casual Person
Atomic Blonde picture

Revealing mistake: During the car chase when the car gets hit by the truck and goes into slow motion you can see the roll cage inside the car.

Kong: Skull Island picture

Factual error: When Packard and his men arrive on the island, they are seen wearing ALICE gear (All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment). The film takes place in 1973, that type of gear would've just finished testing phases in 1973. The soldiers would be more accurately equipped with M-1956 Load-Carrying Equipment (LCE) or M-1967 Modernized Load-Carrying Equipment (MCLE).

Matdan97
Baby Driver picture

Other mistake: When Baby is in his boss' car, the boss puts both hands on the steering wheel, and then the sound of the car's engine starting can be heard. He could not have turned the key/ pushed the button with both hands on the steering wheel.

Kit Sullivan
Black Butterfly picture

Other mistake: In the opening minutes Antonio Banderas hops in an open air Jeep and heads to town, driving along, scenery going by, but with no key in the ignition.

Dallen55
War Machine picture

Factual error: Before and during the Marines' arrival in Marjah, some of them are wearing Dust Goggles. These would've been first issued in World War II and continued into the early 2000s. The Battle for Marjah took place in 2010, by which point these goggles had been replaced by superior models such as ESS for some time.

Matdan97
You Get Me picture

Continuity mistake: Alison is saying goodbye to her parents and she is wearing a long kimono. As she walks into her bedroom she is no longer wearing it, and then picks it up off her bed and puts it on.

Emilyt2001
Wish Upon picture

Continuity mistake: Late in the film, Clare becomes unpopular again and a girl throws a drink at her shirt. The stain the drink makes changes considerably when she is cleaning it in the bathroom mirror (it is darker and more messy). The stain then is back to what it was earlier after that (before we see her wish for her mother to be alive).

manthabeat
The Dark Tower picture

Continuity mistake: Roland crumbles up Jake's drawing and stuffs it in his jacket, but when he takes it out again, it's neatly folded.

Brian Katcher
Underworld: Blood Wars picture
Underworld: Blood Wars mistake picture

Continuity mistake: Selene normally wears high heel boots. They briefly turn into flats during her caged fight with Varga, right before he betrays her.

ployp
The Hitman's Bodyguard picture

New this month Continuity mistake: When Mr. Kurosawa gets shot in the plane, the ropes on the left of Bryan are standing until a body guard knocks them down. As they cut to another shot, the ropes are back up.
