‘Dunkirk’ tops 2017 movie mistakes list
Christopher Nolan’s Second World War epic Dunkirk was the most mistake-ridden movie of 2017, according to moviemistakes.com’s annual list of film flubs.
Eagle-eyed movie fans spotted 25 errors in the film, many of them historical, which landed the motion picture first place ahead of Beauty and the Beast and The Fate of the Furious.
Dunkirk’s slip-ups included German planes being the wrong colour and a British Rail train from the 1950s bringing troops back from the war in France in the mid-1940s.
But moviemistakes.com editor Jon Sandys’ favourite movie blunders of the year featured in scenes from the eighth Fast and the Furious movie and Wonder Woman.
He explains, “In Fate of the Furious (Vin Diesel’s character) Dom escapes his crew by crashing through a flower stall, leaving flowers and other debris on his car. Just seconds later we see his car again and it’s pristine – it looks like it’s just been washed.
“In Wonder Woman, as (Gal Gadot’s) Diana is translating in the general’s office, one of the buttons on her coat is undone/missing. As she approaches his desk, it’s suddenly visible on her coat where it should be.”
Spider-Man: Homecoming and It also feature on the top 10 countdown.
The full list is:
1. Dunkirk – 25 mistakes
2. Beauty and the Beast – 23 mistakes
3. Fast & Furious 8 – 20 mistakes
