Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): When Helen follows Klaatu into the forest, she leaves Jacob in the car, telling him to lock the door. As instructed, Jacob locks the door. Problem is, the car has 3 other doors which he does not lock. However most modern (post-1980s) cars have a feature called "central locking". At a minimum, all the doors are locked/unlocked if the driver's side lock is operated.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): The sphere in Central Park is bright and glowing, yet it doesn't seem to be reflected in the windshields of the vehicles on the site of the landing.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): The robot figure intercepts the MQ-9 Reapers and flies them into what is depicted as a M1 Abrams Main battle tank. The destruction depicted could not have happened, even with the missile warheads on-board. The M1 variant tanks have taken hits from "explosive" tank rounds in combat with only minimal damage to their advanced armor composites.
  • Jaden Smith's dad Will Smith turned down the lead which became Keanu Reeves' for The Matrix.
