Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • First film to be nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award Oscar that is (at least partially) a mockumentary.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): After Wikus escapes from the bio lab, he is seen removing his clothing including what appear to be a pair of espadrilles. After stealing replacement clothing, his new footwear are exactly the same as those he wore during the eviction scenes.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): RPG-7 shot which Kobus fire at lifting module can't move that slow; also it won't explode until contacting something with its front part, which didn't occur as Wikus just tried to throw it.
  • SPOILER: When the mother ship starts moving, a number of buildings have their windows blown out. One diamond shaped building with blue glass is left intact. That building is the famous 11 Diagonal Street building which was built next to the old Johannesburg Stock Exchange at 17 Diagonal street. The area was the home of Johannesburg's "new" CBD and was aptly called Newtown. The JSE was relocated further north to Sandton in 2000 but Newtown still remains a landmark in Johannesburg with its market and other attractions. The 11 Diagonal Street "Diamond" building is used today as a commercial office building. It was designed by Helmut Jahn and took nearly 6 years to build, from 1978 to 1983.
