The Greatest Showman picture
The Greatest Showman mistake picture    Video

Deliberate mistake: At the end when PT hands over his top hat to Philip, Philip has a coat with tails. They disappear during his number. In fact they disappear mid-shot - he runs onstage and they're there when he starts sliding, but disappear in the split second he's behind a woman in a purple dress. (01:34:25)

American Made picture

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. (00:17:20)

The Post picture

Factual error: Robert McNamara is wearing a multi colored Polo shirt talking to Mrs. Graham in 1971. The Ralph Lauren Company did not make the shirts until 1972.

Darkest Hour picture

Factual error: The underground station shown is not St. James Park, which would be 1 stop east on the District line. St. James Park has green and yellow tiles on the wall indicating District and Circle lines. The platform in the film has black and brown tiles, indicating Northern and Bakerloo lines, neither of which serve St. James Park.

Crusoe
I, Tonya picture

Continuity mistake: When Tonya's husband is fixing the car, his tool box disappears when he goes to close the hood.

The Death of Stalin picture

Factual error: Beria was not executed until ten days after the funeral, not on the day.

Molly's Game picture

Factual error: When Molly is injured during skiing fall at Deer Valley Resort, 2 patrollers rush to her aide, 1 on a snowboard. Deer Valley does not allow snowboarders.

Victoria and Abdul picture

Continuity mistake: When the soup is about to be served, you see the horns blowing to introduce Victoria, and you can see all of the footmen lined up already with trays of soup, but in the next shot, it shows that they are just starting to march in to line up with their trays of soup. (00:10:45)

Megan Leavey picture

Continuity mistake: When Megan is outside the supermarket asking people to sign her petition, a woman walks up and begins writing on the clipboard. In the first shot, the cap is on the back side of the pen. From the next angle, the woman is scribbling and lifts the pen to show the cap covering the tip that she was "writing" with.

All Eyez on Me picture

Continuity mistake: When Suge Knight pays Tupac for a song in cash. He stacked up $100,000 in two stacks of $10,000. In the next shot the bundles of $10,000 are spread out on the table, and then the bundles are stacked up again. (00:56:00)

Snag.1
Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House picture

Factual error: When Mark Felt and the FBI Director are in a car on the way to the Watergate hearings in 1972 or 1973, from the car window, you see the WW2 memorial, which was built in 2004.

The Man Who Invented Christmas picture

Factual error: In the beginning of the movie, during Lewis Carol's visit to America, you can hear them playing the melody from the song "The Yankee Doodle Boy" written by James Cohan in 1904. This was 64 years after the events in the movie. In the ending credits they cite this as "Yankee Doodle Dandy" which was written many years before. But, that was not the melody that was being played.

The Disaster Artist picture

Factual error: The movie's set in the late 90s, but a 2015 Lexus and Audi are visible behind a girl when they first arrive in LA. (01:23:00)
