Continuity mistake: Trevor falls a short distance to the floor after Hannah cuts his harness ropes with a knife. After he hits the floor and the ropes fall onto him, between shots the ropes laying all over his body and face keep moving, disappearing and appearing. (00:26:40)

Continuity mistake: When Hannah is tending to Trevor and Sean as guests in her house, she brings three mugs over and places them on the table. Between shots the three mugs swap their places; you can easily see this by comparing them in relation to the book sitting next to them. (00:15:20)

Revealing mistake: After Trevor has been lowered above the pit of magma, in an attempt to light the magnesium walls with a flare, we see shots of Sean hanging over the edge of the inside of the T-Rex skull. Sean's hands are resting on a large tooth in the skull, which clearly shakes like a fake prop each time he touches it. (01:17:15)

Continuity mistake: When Sean is jumping across the floating magnetic rocks, as he jumps on the one that begins to flip him around twice, as he is flipped round the first time, it causes his small black utility belt (with the pocketknife and phone pouch) to fall off his waist, down into the abyss. In the following scenes moments later though, the same pouch/belt can be seen on his waist. (01:05:15)

Continuity mistake: After Trevor and the others are submerged in the water they have soaked everything, but the book is intact and dry moments after that.

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.

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.
