Skyfall High In Annual List Of Movie Gaffes
The latest James Bond movie, Skyfall, may be the most successful film in British box office history - but it is strewn with errors.
It had the second highest number of mistakes in 2012, according to an online list of movie gaffes spotted by filmgoers.
Second only to Men In Black III, with 63 mistakes spotted, Skyfall comes in with 35, www.moviemistakes.com says.
Among the mistakes listed are:
:: Where Bond is fighting on top of the train ... his footwear changes from black lace up shoes to black slip-on ankle boots.
:: Just before Bond reaches the chapel, he plunges into icy water. In the next scene, in the chapel, he is perfectly dry.
:: In the Istanbul chase scene, Eve knocks out the windshield of the car she's driving ... For the rest of the chase, about half the glass is suddenly back in the frame.
::† In the chase through the tube station, Bond and Silva both slide down between the escalators. On the London Underground this area has hard vertical signs at regular intervals, precisely to prevent people sliding down.
:: When on the motorbike on the rooftops of Istanbul, Bond at first has no sunglasses on, then sunglasses on, then no sunglasses.
The 23rd official Bond film became the first movie ever to take £100m at the British box office at the weekend.
It had already become the highest grossing film in the UK, raking in £94.3m in 40 days, according to the producers.
Globally, the film, which marks the 50th anniversary of the franchise and cost £100m to make, has taken more than $1bn (£613m).
Daniel Craig's third appearance as British secret agent Bond is still on general release more than two months after it first hit British cinemas.
The movie sees Bond battling with villain Raoul Silva (played by Javier Bardem), who aims to take revenge on his former boss M (Judi Dench).
