Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (incorrectly regarded as a mistake): It is clearly established that the movie is set in an "alternative universe" and its geography, technology and history must therefore be as the filmmakers describe. There could be graveyards in Venice and the roads could be extensive enough to allow Tom Sawyer to drive around. In addition, the inhabitants of Venice might have been celebrating the Carnivale in 1899. (In reality, the Carnivale was banned by Napoléon Bonaparte when he invaded Venice in 1797 and not reinstated until 1980.)
  • Tony Curran's agent did not want him to take the role of Skinner. He reasoned that since the character is invisible for most of the film, no one would care about who was playing him. Once the film came out Skinner became a fan favorite.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): SPOILER: At the end of the fight between Mina Harker and Dorian Gray, we see that Mina runs Dorian through, and we see him from the back, but we do not see the blade protruding from him. The blade and blood were intentionally left out because executives feared it would give the movie an R rating instead of the PG13 they wanted. Further, Mina pushes Dorian to the wall, leading him with the sword, we see the blade is somewhere in Dorian's lower right ribs. But when she backs away from him to get his painting, the sword is located higher in his upper sternum.
  • Fox was unable to get the rights for the literary character of The Invisible Man. Not only did this necessitate the character in the film have his name changed from the canon's "Griffin", but that he could never be referred to as "the" Invisible Man, only "an" invisible man.
