Movie-lovers are highly skilled at noticing mistakes and inconsistencies in the movies they watch. Every small change in a character’s appearance or the position of an object is usually noticed by some sharp-eyed observer as soon as a new movie appears in theatres.
There are some mistakes, however, which are subtle enough for many people to overlook. Below are 14 mistakes which you probably never noticed before.
If you watch a movie carefully, you can often see the reflection of the camera in a car window. This is actually a common mistake which many directors fail to pick up on. It’s certainly visible here in Twilight.
When Jake opens the capsule, there is no sign of the wheelchair. A moment later it appears out of thin air next to him.
#3. Terminator 2: Judgement Day
Early in the film, the Terminator shields John against the bullets from the T-1000 with his own body, receiving a whole cartridge in his back. His coat is covered in bullet holes. But a few moments later it looks good as new.
When the truck which the T-1000 is driving in his chase with John Connor falls over the bridge, its front windows fall out. In the next shot, they’re there again.
#4. The Avengers
In the scene where Thor destroys everything around him, the bumper of one car is miraculously restored to good condition.
It seems there were two Titanics. Otherwise, how can we explain the changing appearance of the deck?
#6. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines
At one point, John and Kate fly off in a small white plane. The number on the side first initially appears to be N3035C. Once they’ve landed, the number changes to N3973F. But then when they land the first number has reappeared.
#7. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
It seems there were a few pirates in Jack Sparrow’s gang who were fans of modern-day fashion.
#8. Marie Antoinette
A truly huge mistake can be seen in this biography of the queen of France directed by Sofia Coppola. It seems Converse shoes were popular among the aristocracy in the 18th century.
#9. The Usual Suspects
When we first see the plane coming into the airport, it has four engines. A second later and it appears to have lost two of them.
At the time when the crew finds the alien ship, we notice that Kane is wearing a special cap inside his space suit. When we later see him in the hospital, the helmet of his suit is removed to reveal the alien creature attached to his face — but his cap has gone missing.
The main character John seems to be holding his smartphone upside down in virtually all scenes in the film. It doesn’t seem to stop him from communicating through it.
In Gladiator, we see that the ancient Romans apparently had gas canisters in their chariots. Also, we are quite sure that there were no planes in those times.
#13. Star Wars
One of the stormtroopers (on the far right) is too tall and hits his head against the door.
#14. Dallas Buyers Club
This film is set in 1985, but in one scene we see a poster of a Lamborghini Aventador on a wall. This car was only released in 2011.
