Journey to the Center of the Earth

Character mistake: When in the mineshaft Trevor says that magnesium is used in gunpowder. That is not correct.

Character mistake: Trevor tells Sean to "eat his trilobite to keep his strength up." However, Trevor, a geologist, pronounces trilobite incorrectly as "TRIL-o-byt" instead of the correct pronunciation "TRY-luh-byt." The name derives from the fact that the creatures have 3 (tri) lobes. Tri - for 3 not Tril - for 3.

Factual error: Hannah's full name is Hannah Ásgeirsson. Icelandic surnames are (Father's name) sson for boys and (Mother's name) dottir for girls, so Ásgeirsson would be the surname of the male child of a man named Ásgeir. Her name should be Hannah Sigurbjörnsdóttir.

Trivia: A subtle reference to this film's 3D format: In Max's box, Trevor finds a pocket stereoscope, which are funky looking glasses that create the illusion of a three-dimensional image from two-dimensional photographs. It was invented by Sir Charles Wheatstone in 1840.

Chosen answer: Yep. The DVD comes in 3-D and 2-D versions. The 3-D versions come with (if I remember correctly) four pairs of 3-D glasses.
