Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Doon and Lina jump through the hole and run away to escape from the giant mole, Lina suddenly is wearing a miners helmet. In the succeeding scene the helmet is gone again.
  • The first time Bill Murray and Martin Landau have been in a film together since Ed Wood. And Caroline Thompson, the screenwriter on City of Ember regularly works with Tim Burton.
  • SPOILER: When Doon gets his first glimpse of the generator, the camera views it from our perspective instead. Director Gil Kenan did it this way because Doon acts as our eyes and it conveys to us the importance of the generator to his city and our story.
  • The live action debut for director Gil Kenan. His actual film debut, Monster House was motion capture animated.
