Planet of the Apes mistake picture

Revealing mistake: After the trained chimp is shot and is crawling into the cage, they show a shot of an ape turning around. You don't even have to look hard to see it but there's a two inch strip all the way down his face with no makeup. Clear as day. (01:41:30)

Revealing mistake: The humans on the planet live a prehistoric existence with little technology, however, they seem to be remarkably good at making foundation garments. Estella Warren spends most of the movie running around in nothing but an animal skin and yet her considerable assets are always held firmly in place.

Revealing mistake: When one of the people on Mark Wahlberg's team runs to a huge ape after an ape has escaped Paul Giamatti gets his hand cramped by the big ape. You can see a slight grin on his face, so you know he's not really hurt.

Continuity mistake: When they cross the river and arrive at the other side, they are all dry. Mark Wahlberg was in the water up to his neck and sometimes higher yet he seems to be completely dry.

Question: To prevent spoilers/plot leaking to the public, Tim Burton made five endings to keep people guessing. Is there anywhere I can see any of the other four?

Answer: There were five different endings to the movie and late actor Michael Clarke Duncan saw them all. So far, no website seems to have all five endings. Just the one we're familiar with.

Answer: You might be mistaken, there was only ever one ending shot for this film: the ending we all saw at the Lincoln Memorial. There were different planned endings (one was a similar ending to the theatrical but set at Yankee stadium with apes playing baseball) that were each rejected for various reasons. The ending we see is the one that is in the script.
