Deep Blue Sea

Corrected entry: When the shark first smashes the glass with the gurney carrying the man who was first bitten and failed to escape in the helicopter, he releases the gurney about 50 feet away from the glass. How could the gurney maintain its speed underwater? (00:41:00)

Correction: The shark "threw" the gurney before letting go, so maybe it had enough force for it to smash like that; it didn't just let go of it.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Carter and Scoggins swim down into the flooded lab, the shark attacks them and Scoggins is bitten in half. Scoggins has two left feet. (01:02:00)

Correction: If you look closely, when the shark swims away, its body bumps Scoggins' free-floating lower half which causes one of the legs to rotate roughly 180°; due to the missing hip joint.

Corrected entry: When the giant glass window breaks, Samuel L. Jackson and the blonde girl are literally about a second away from being cut down by the water and glass flooding in, but from another angle they are way ahead of the water.

Correction: If you watch closely you will see that they are consistantly the same distance from the glass. There is no jumping over a huge distance.

Corrected entry: Toward the end, as people are fleeing the coastline, we see a group of refugees watching a television on a truck alongside the road. They are watching MSNBC. Must have a pretty long cable.

Correction: You can mount one of the newer small satellite dishes on a vehicle if you have a power source and a compass to align it. It's a bit odd to flee a hurricane and take your tv and satellite dish, but it's certainly possible.

Corrected entry: Just before the two sharks simultaneously attack Carter while he is diving through the underwater cage-like corridor with his harpoon we see the rest of the crew monitoring this with the help of tree monitors displaying the pictures of the underwater cameras in the cages (later destroyed by the sharks). The view on the left screen is taken from a camera that keeps moving backwards while Carter swimming towards it. This displayed shot can't be taken by one of the fixed observation cameras.

Correction: The camera isn't moving backwards, the tech is switching the feed from one camera to another farther down.

Phoenix

Revealing mistake: As soon as the three survivors are coming out of the lab through the hatch underwater, they all signal each other to rise to the top. Look at Safron Burrows, her cheeks are full of air and you can almost see the surface above her head. You can also see the exact same shot when she is about to be eaten by the last shark. And what's with that hand gesture - to cut or for the shark to stop? (01:26:30 - 01:33:10)

Suggested correction: Her cheeks are like that because when we all take in a big breath of air and hold it so not to breathe, that's what happens. The hand gestures when she goes in the water is so the blood can mix with the water so the shark can smell it.

The hand gesture the entry is referring to is just before she is eaten by the shark, the actress waves her hand across her neck area, allegedly to indicate to the director that she was running out of air.

Russell Franklin: You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... And only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

Trivia: All three sharks are killed in almost the same way the first three sharks is killed in the 'Jaws' movies. Blown up with gas, electrocuted and the last one is blown up.

More trivia for Deep Blue Sea

Question: How did they do the scene when one of the sharks ate the bird? I know they used animatronic sharks for any interaction with the people, so did they use the same method for the bird? It was "inside" the shark after all.

Answer: This was a CGI scene.
