Elysium (2013)

Factual error: When the Armadyne computer reboots, you can see the typical bootup screen which gives away certain information about the computer: In two consecutive shots of the screen, you can see that this computer has a BIOS, a GA-MA790XT-UD4P mainboard from Gigabyte, 4 gigabytes of RAM, and apparently works with IDE drives. The successor to the BIOS is called UEFI, the mainboard and 4 GB of RAM are only remotely up to date as of 2014, and IDE drives are already dying out in favor of SATA drives.

The Dark Knight (2008)

Trivia: Heath Ledger stopping after the first sequence of explosions at the hospital ends and the tinkering with the remote were actually improvised. The script originally saw Ledger going straight to the bus and NOT wait for the much bigger sequence of explosions.(Apparently the gap between the two sequences was a safety gap for the actor to get away).

Continuity mistake: The scene where Bane overwhelms the guards at the stock exchange and the surveillance tape of that scene that Alfred shows Bruce later are not from from the same take/choreography: In the surveillance tape when Bane shoots the guard with the other guard's pistol still in his hand, in the exact moment the shot goes off (recognizable by Bane's upwards bouncing arm), the guard flails his left arm high and throws his head back as if reacting choreographically to a punch (that punch comes half a second later though). In the original the guard does not flail with his left arm and does not throw his head back the moment the shot goes off. He only does it when Bane actually hits him with his own pistol. Furthermore, you can see from the surveillance tape that Bane's pistol-punch does not connect with the guard's face.

Other mistake: After Batman returns to his cave, Alfred shows him the recording of the surveillance camera. From the angle of the surveillance camera, you can see that Bane shoots an armed guard that stands inside the metal detector. Yet in the original scene at the stock exchange there is no audible alarm from the metal detector that should've been triggered by the armed guard. In both recordings you can see that the green light ("ready" & "no alarm") is on all the time.

Continuity mistake: The plane in the beginning has at least 4 rows of seats in the left and 5 rows in the right. In the final shot where Bane and the doctor "slip" out of the plane, the left has only 3 rows and the right one also seems to have no more than 3. Additionally, the last of both rows are level, although in the rest of the scene they are not. Furthermore, Bane and the doctor "start" amidst the seats, although in the last shot they start behind the last row of seats. And the aisle is pretty narrow in the last shot with not enough space to fit an additional seat, compared to the rest of the scene where the gap is wide enough to fit at least two seats.
