The Queen of the Damned

Continuity mistake: When Lestat goes to attack the woman in the park he already has blood on his mouth. (This is because originally Lestat attacked her twice, but this scene was later cut down.) (01:00:55)

Continuity mistake: When Lestat bites Jessie's neck her dress' stripes are down to her elbows, when he lets her down, they're up to her shoulders. (01:22:40)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Akasha confronts the elders, when Akasha enters with Lestat her hair is down in the back. When Akasha is disintegrating all of her hair is braided on the top of her head. This is due to the death of the actress/singer Aaliyah. They had to use what they could from other takes during the film process. Also a double with some digital re-enhancement helped with finishing the film.

Trivia: There's a scene where Jesse gets out of a cab and is harassed by a scalper selling tickets to Lestat's concert. The scalper is played by none other than Jonathan Davis who performed many of the movie's original songs.

Question: Why would they try to combine both The Vampire Lestat and Queen of the Damned into one movie? They twisted the story line and left out some key characters and elements. What did Anne Rice think about this?

Answer: She disowned the movie completely. The situation was that if no movie had been made from her books by a particular date, then the rights would revert back to Anne Rice herself. In order to forestall this, Warner Brothers threw something together using the bits that they liked from two different books. The result was functional, barely, but was hardly a worthy companion to the books.
