Pitch Black

Revealing mistake: In the fight scene between Riddick and Johns, there is a wide shot of them both fighting over Johns' shotgun. In this shot it is apparent that it is not Vin Diesel in the shot but in fact a stunt double. (01:17:35)

THGhost

Revealing mistake: Claudia Black's character "Shazza" drives the vehicle back to the ship as the eclipse starts to take place. There is a front shot of the vehicle as it is driven through the bone yard. In this shot it is obvious that it isn't Claudia Black driving the vehicle. (00:53:50)

THGhost

Deliberate mistake: In the scene right after they figure out that an eclipse would occur, everyone takes Shazza's drive to get back to the crash site. Right after the ride under the huge skeletons, you can see Shazza take a turn to her right but she was turning the wheel to her left.

Question: When Riddick says that the monsters can track them because the girl is bleeding, and Jack is revealed to be a girl, is it her period that he is talking about? Did Riddick smell it, too?

Answer: Yes, it is her period. Considering that he lived in darkness for years, it's possible that he smells it too. It's also equally likely he realized she was a girl and that the creatures were all riled up and put two and two together. But the first explanation fits Riddick's character better.
