Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: While Dave gets outside the Discovery in attempt to retrieve Frank's body, HAL kills the hibernating crew, a shoot of the hangar bay shows the door to the left open. When Dave is back in the Discovery and away to shut down HAL, the same door is closed.
  • Though almost invisible when watching the film on a TV screen, the three satellites in the first space sequence bear German, French, and Chinese markings.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Dr. Floyd has finished flipping through photographs on his way to the TMA-1 moon base, during the cut where he says "Deliberately buried," he is holding a different photograph from the one he is holding in the preceding and succeeding shots.
  • Rock band Pink Floyd was at one point approached to perform music for the film. However they turned it down due to other commitments. Yet they retain a connection with the film: much like The Wizard of Oz and "Dark Side of the Moon", it is said that Pink Floyd's song "Echoes" from the album "Meddle" can be perfectly synchronized with the "Jupiter & Beyond the Infinite" segment of the film. See links section for details.
