Mistakes happen all the time, even in movies. Directors try so hard to get that perfect scene, but whether it’s actors simply messing up their lines, the budget running out, or just pure editing laziness, mistakes happen!
Below is a list of 17 ridiculous mistakes that happened in some really famous movies that got caught by the audience.
1. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
In the scene where Sam says his farewells to Frodo, he somehow managed to lose his beige vest between shots.
After agreeing that Frodo should have a scar on his cheek, they for some reason kept forgetting which side it was supposed to be on. The scar moved to either side of his face throughout the scene.
2. Deadpool (2016)
In the uncomfortably gory scene where Deadpool thinks it’s the best idea to saw his hand off, if you took a closer look, you would realise that he sawed off his left one. However, in the scene right after, his right hand is the one that is missing.
3. Star Trek Beyond (2016)
In this scene, Captain Kirk considers his on-board safety and fastened in his seat belt around his waist. In the scene right after though, his seat belt has moved to being on his shoulder.
4. Cleopatra (1963)
The costumes used in the movie were made so that they not only fit the actress, but also to highlight her exquisiteness, even if it meant using fashion from a different era. Which is why Cleopatra is walking in high heels in this scene.
5. Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014)
Nothing is safe from bad filmmakers, not even mailboxes. This scene starts off with a girl opening a mailbox with a pretty big hole made for letters, then the hole somehow gets smaller, and finally it’s gone completely.
6. Pearl Harbor (2001)
This pilot must be extremely talented if he’s able to draw perfectly with both of his hands. We first find him drawing his masterpiece with his left hand, next shot he’s drawing with his right, then back to his left again.
7. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (2016)
Holding a star pin to place on the map to mark a spot, the next shot shows that the pin is in fact a circle.
Miss Peregrine’s children must have gone for seconds because in the first shot you can see Claire had finished her food, but somehow her plate is full in the next shot.
8. The Fifth Element (1997)
Korban starts the scene grabbing the water stone off of Cornelius, which somehow becomes the fire stone. Then the water stone is back with Cornelius.
9. Jurassic Park (1993)
Hammond can be seen wiping a glass using a basic small white towel, but in the next shot the white towel becomes a much bigger red towel.
10. Now You See Me 2 (2016)
I guess when you’re running for your life from the FBI, it makes perfect sense to find somewhere to change into your own clothes after being dressed as a security guard.
11. Colombiana (2011)
After originally holding an SD card in his hand, it becomes a floppy disk when he comes to insert it into the computer.
12. The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
As you can see from his file, Illya Kuryakin was in fact born in Russia and not the USSR.
13. Kingsman: The Secret Service (2014)
If you’re stuck in holding and need to make a quick phone call, why not reach for the magic phone that wasn’t previously there. That’s exactly what Eggsy happened to do when he pulled a phone out of nowhere.
14. Terminator: Genisys (2015)
According to science, you have to be 1,000km up in the air to be able to see the trajectory of ballistic missiles. So, how is it possible that it could be seen from a commercial flight when planes don’t go higher than 20km?
15. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)
When Blomkvist pays a visit to Hedestad, he only has a couple of bags and a suitcase. So, it’s surprising to see him leave with a huge bundle of bags.
16. National Treasure: Book of Secrets (2007)
Throughout the movie, Ben carries a rabbit in his jacket pocket. However, when they move to the White House, the toy is suddenly a lot different.
