Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow

The evil mastermind Dr. Totenkopf died twenty years ago. The mysterious deadly sidekick is a robot that's been carrying on his project until the end. Totenkopf's plan was to carry all animals (like Noah's Ark) in a rocket that would kill everyone on Earth and give humanity a new start; the two tubes that Polly had were "Adam and Eve" and without them, the project could not continue. Joe and Polly stop the rocket from killing everyone on Earth. Polly uses her last camera shot taking a picture of Joe and he says "You forgot to take off the lens cap."

Continuity mistake: A montage scene of newspaper headlines early on has March 12, 1939 as the date. Much later in the film, Jude Law asks Gwyneth Paltrow the date so he can calculate the position of a star. She responds "March 2" but there is absolutely nothing to indicate that nearly a year has passed.
