Hit monster movie Godzilla has been named the most mistake-laden film of the year (14) so far. The sci-fi favourite, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is currently riding high on both sides of the Atlantic after racking up combined opening weekend sales of more than $100 million (£62.5 million).
However, it is also on course to set another record for 2014 after eagle-eyed cinema-goers noticed a string of errors since the film was released on Friday (16May14). Godzilla has shot straight to the top of a ‘list of shame’ on Moviemistakes.com with nine howling errors, including gaps between a character’s airtight radiation mask and his face, a huge explosion with a tiny shockwave, and a whispered conversation in a noisy helicopter.
Second on the list is Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which has eight errors including a shield with three bullet holes when only two shots are fired, and a stationary car changing direction between shots. The Monuments Men, Robocop, and Need for Speed all tie for third place, with five mistakes each.
