Corrected entry: In the scene where the LA skyline is first shown with the 4 or so tornadoes swirling around it, the highway at the bottom of the screen shows backed up traffic heading towards the city and hardly any moving away from it. People should not be driving towards the tornadoes. (00:27:00)
Corrected entry: When you see Jack jumping over the big crack in the ice, he lands on the other side having successfully got the cores. When he falls back, his pick has saved him from falling down. But you can see he did not have the pick in his hand as he was falling. (00:05:25)
Corrected entry: In the scene when Sam and co are at JD's house when you hear the report about a storm in Canada and he says,'a cold front moving down from the Arctic has created an enormous storm system in Canada',the Arctic was never mentioned that it had a problem,the ice cap that had the problem was the Antarctic. (00:42:15)
Corrected entry: When you see all of the people leaving New York because of the blizzard there is one shot where the people are coming out of the library and close up to the screen you can see a traffic light dangling down which is obviously made from light vacuum-formed material as you can see it swinging so easily. (01:08:20)
Corrected entry: The bottom few floors of the buildings are flooded. Then it freezes. But ice takes up more space than water. So the buildings would have been raised substantially. This would have made the buildings fall over when the ice melted, yet they don't.
Corrected entry: If the northern hemisphere is going to freeze over, what is the reason behind the people from the southern states of the USA as well as the President and Vice-President only going as far as Mexico?
Corrected entry: When we see Sam and the other two boys leave the library to go to the ship, they are able to exit straight from the top floor due to all the snow, which has buried most of the building. Yet when they leave, you can see two traffic lights sticking out from the under the snow. After the storms and tidal wave, how can the traffic lights be sticking out, perfectly straight, from under all of that snow? (01:33:00)Hamster
Corrected entry: More fresh water in the ocean wouldn't trigger a global cooling trend. Salt water actually allows the oceans to be cooler without freezing.
Corrected entry: When Brian changes the TV channel in New York so that the students see coverage of the two plane crashes, he changes the channel to Fox 5, which is the same channel that Sam was watching in Washington D.C.
Corrected entry: When the helicopters are flying to pick up the British royal family, the helicopters shown are not real, in-service helicopters, but a hybrid of two different helicopters. The front end/cockpit is the cockpit of a Westland Seaking, the tail end of a Merlin EH101 and the main body/main rotor area a bit of both. Later in the scene, when the crewman slides open the cargo door and freezes, this is also the door of a Westland Seaking. The internal shots are also that of a Seaking. (00:38:05)
Corrected entry: In the scene in the library where everyone is looking for a place to start a fire a worker at the library takes everyone to a fireplace. She says that the fireplace has not been used in 100 years. If the fireplace has not been used in 100 years surely it would have needed to be swept out prior to use or else all the smoke and CO would not have vented out the chimney. Instead it would have filled the room and killed everyone there.
