Demolition Man (1993)

Other mistake: It seems curious that the museum, even in the weapons display, would have functional firearms and LIVE munitions of any sort, even if no one would be interested in ever taking and using them.

Passengers (2016)

Factual error: During the 31st year of the Avalon's voyage, the ship passes close to the star Arcturus, which is about 37 light years from Earth. Later in the movie, it was stated that the Avalon was moving at around 50% of the speed of light. The ship would not have reached Arcturus in the time allotted.

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Trivia: When Tony is flipping through his father's notebooks, he comes across a sketch of an object that looks like a cube within a cube with lines connecting the corners. This object is called a tesseract, which is a three-dimensional model of a four-dimensional object. Or in this case, a two-dimensional drawing of a three-dimensional model of a four-dimensional object. This is a foreshadowing of The Tesseract, one of the Infinity Stones, which plays a huge part in several of the other Marvel movies.
