8 Movie Mistakes That Are Very Hard to Notice at First

2 years ago

Very few movies are shot “episode after the episode.” Depending on the weather conditions, the actors’ schedules, and financing, it can sometimes happen that the filming can be done out of chronological order. In such conditions, even the most professional movie consultants can sometimes forget about very important details which end up shocking attentive viewers.

We at Bright Side also noticed these accidental mistakes and want to tell you about 8 movie mistakes which can make even a historical movie seem like a fantasy film.


The clothes of the Scottish warrior William Wallace from Braveheart remind of the traditional national costume — the kilt. But the problem is that it appeared at around the beginning of the 18th century and the movie depicts events that took place at the end of the 13th century.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

In the books by Joanne Rowling about a young wizard, Harry Potter, it is often said that he had green eyes — just like his mother. In the movie, the role of the boy is played by Daniel Radcliff, who has green eyes. And the movie characters said that Harry had his “mother’s eyes.” But something went wrong, and the actress who played the young Lily had brown eyes instead of blue or green ones.

Forrest Gump

Forrest’s friend Lieutenant Dan decided to invest money in some “fruit company.” As it turned out, the fruit was an apple, and the company was the legendary Apple. After that, in one of the episodes, Gump received a letter from Apple Computer Inc. The date on the letter said September 23, 1975. But the real foundation date is April 1, 1976.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End

This is another case when the movie creators were ahead of the time. In the third part of this pirate story, Captain Barbossa and Elizabeth Swan, along with the team, go to Singapore to find Captain Sao Feng there. The movie is set at the beginning of the 18th century. The problem is that the story of modern Singapore started only in the beginning of 1819.


Nothing unusual. Just a plane in BC times. Either the creators thought that the Greeks might need aerial support, or they figured that the viewers would be charmed by Brad Pitt and they won’t notice this small mistake.

Game of Thrones

The Unsullied are known to the viewers as the loyal warriors who are ready to sacrifice their lives for Daenerys, their Queen. None of them have any romantic relationships with women. And there is a reason for that. The love of the Grey Worm and Missandei is an exception. But, judging by this shot from the show, one of them is still married, or maybe, he just likes jewelry.

Django Unchained

In some episodes of the movies, Jamie Foxx, who played the role of Django, wears sunglasses which are still modern and fashionable today. But the problem is that the movie is set in 1858, and the first sunglasses were sold in the US in 1929. Well, maybe Django got these from some limited collection.

Captain America: Civil War

In this superhero movie, there is a scene where Spider-Man grabs Captain America’s shield and covers it with web all over. In the next scene, Spider-Man is holding the shield in his hands, and the trophy is absolutely clean. How did he manage to clean it so fast?

These facts are always fascinating to me, but the Harry Potter should have green eyes bothers me. Daniel had a reaction to both the glasses and the green contacts. Eyes are more important health wise than a rash on his nose. Why would they make a big deal about the girl playing Lily and her eye color if Daniel couldn't wear the green contacts? There are more important things than movie adaptions being exactly 100% like the book, but I do agree that "modern" things shouldn't be in "older" time periods. I mean, other than in science fiction or fantasy world. Unless it is specified that the technology is behind in their area than what was historical for that time. Now, some things where a slightly different version technology wise that may have existed a bit before a patent, but something proved to not have a primative version shouldn't be used if just a story not in the future of another planet or magical world.

My point about a movie adaption from a book angers book lovers. I also love books, but when things are approved by the author or just taken out for time reasons I can`t let myself get worked up over it. Honestly , "...THE GOBLET OF FIAHH?!" Is just funny to me.
