16 Movie Goofs Directors Missed but Viewers Didn’t
Very often, shooting scenes that only last 2-3 minutes on the screen takes hours or even days. Crews need to move all the equipment and actors need time to rest, have lunch, or rehearse their scenes. And it’s important to hide the signs of this break in the final movie. Of course, it’s not always possible, so some goofs are bound to appear. And attentive viewers always notice things like this.
We at CHEERY also notice goofs sometimes, and here are some from movies that have been released in recent years.
The Lost City (2022)
At the start of the film, the character of Daniel Radcliffe puts on white gloves and shows Loretta a box with a piece of a map. It has to probably be very valuable and it’s important not to damage it. But one minute later, the actor holds the same box without the gloves on.
