In Line For The Throne
Movies have the ability to help us forget about our everyday lives and take us to the past, the future, or even to another planet. But the people making the film are only human, which means they'll make mistakes. Unfortunately, some mistakes don't end up on the editing floor. So here are the biggest movie mistakes that made it to a theater near you.
The 2017 film, "The Mummy" was an epic failure for Tom Cruise. The effects were great, but the historical inaccuracies may have played a role in the film's demise. Just look at Princess Ahmanet, who was first in line succeed her dad. But in ancient Egypt, only men could become pharaohs. Now, if you love 80s flicks, then you'll know what movie this iconic scene came from.
In a pivotal scene in "Back to the Future," Marty McFly gets on stage at the Enchanted Under The Sea school dance, and uses a Gibson ES-345 to play "Johnny B. Goode" in 1955. But the song and the guitar didn't come out until 1955. Now the next film's main character will probably continue to haunt your dreams, but when you learn about these mistakes, you might feel a little less scared.
The Great White Lie
We love "Jaws" even though it scared the bejesus out of us. But the shark antagonist in the film has some traits that real sharks don't. For one thing, they don’t growl because they don't have vocal chords. They also don't swim in reverse the way Jaws did. But the movie is still terrifying anyway. Now, when you learn about the giant hiccup in this next film, it'll change the way you feel about it.
Paramount Pictures/20th Century Fox
"Braveheart" was the Scottish origin story that made have made Mel Gibson famous. But there was an inaccuracy in the film that likely ticked a lot of Scottish people off. In the film, William Wallace and his friends wore kilts, but kilts weren't even worn until the 17th century, four centuries after the movie's events. This next scene from a popular movie will likely make you wish that you could actually change your shipping provider for good.
The Waterproof Boxes
20th Century Fox/Dreamworks Pictures
In "Castaway," Tom Hanks names a volleyball Wilson and uses it and other things on the island to keep himself entertained. In one scene, he also finds lots of FedEx boxes floating in the water. But when he opens them, the stuff inside isn't wet, even though those boxes aren't waterproof. Now, we can't blame you if you didn't like this next movie as much as its other predecessors… maybe it was the inaccuracies that made you hate it.
