Revealing mistake: Right after O'Neil and Jackson are captured inside the pyramid and taken aboard the alien ship a distant shot is shown of the ship while it is opening. In the sky over the ship are depictions of three moons. Each of the three moons shown in the sky of the distant planet are actually the Earth's moon when it is full but just shown rotated slightly in different positions. (01:38:00)

Continuity mistake: The pen used in the beginning of the drawing is different from the solid blue one used in the close up shot. Also, when the camera goes back to a wide shot, the color of the drawing on the whiteboard changes from blue to black. (00:17:40 - 00:18:35)

Continuity mistake: When O'Neil activates the nuke he flips up a red protective cover and then flips the switch to the up position. Later when he attempts to deactivate it, he flips up the same red cover and flips the switch to the up position again.

Grumpy Scot

Continuity mistake: When Jackson re-translates the hieroglyphics, the way he writes "Buried" changes between shots.

Sacha Premium member

Continuity mistake: RA continues to wear the necklace at the end of the movie when it was taken from him by Daniel before he left the spaceship via the transporter.

Revealing mistake: On the first night at the slaves' fortress, Daniel is eating the "chicken" and telling them how good it is. After that they take him away to give him a wash. As they walk off, they pass the small fire the slaves have made. If you look at the fire closely, there is a metal circle at the bottom and the fire is coming out of seven holes in it, which means that it is a prop gas fire.

Gavin Jackson

Revealing mistake: When James Spader is first exiting the pyramid after he first arrives on the planet, he begins to touch the wall on the left as the moves out the doorway. He appears to be using the wall for balance. During the last shot before he walks completely out into the open, the "solid rock" wall bends inward like it's made of rubber.

Trivia: The producers, the casting agents, really wanted Jaye Davidson, from "The Crying Game", to play the head bad guy, but Jaye said, "No more movies", so they kept upping the money they would pay him - this is before actors nowadays get phenomenal money - and it was only when they got to a million dollars that he said yes.

Question: What does Dr. Jackson say when they send the probe through? Is it, "Where are we on that map?" or, "Where will it be on that map?"

Answer: It's "Where are we on that map?" the reply given is "The blue dot". He then traces the path to the other side of the map where the probe is shown, which is on the other side of the universe.
