Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.

Factual error: A theater marquee is visible promoting the showing of a film called Tribeca Follies. The acronym "Tribeca" - an amalgamation of "Triangle Below Canal [Street]" - didn't come into usage until the 1970s.

Audio problem: When Newt, Tina, Queenie and Jacob are peeking at Dougal at the department store, Newt says to Jacob and Queenie, "You two, head that way." His lips don't move at all.

Other mistake: When Grindelwald is shown stealing the elder wand in one of the original movies, he was a much younger man that he is in "Beasts." And the battle between him and Dumbledore was much later. But he doesn't have the elder wand when impersonating Graves.

Other mistake: When Newt gives Jacob a suitcase full of eggs, he bumps into him, apparently swapping suitcases. If you watch carefully, the suitcases don't actually switch.
