‘Kong’ And ‘Narnia’ Full Of Mistakes

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – While King Kong and The Chronicles of Narnia race for the top spot at the box office, the films are also neck and neck when it comes to being the movie with the most post-production mistakes.

Jon Sandys runs the website and has tabulated 43 flubs in the 187-minute Kong and 39 blunders in the shorter, 140-minute Narnia.

Sandys insists he saw both films with the intention of enjoying them, not searching out mistakes.

In fact, he says his friend pointed him to “a moment of slight embarrassment” in King Kong when Naomi Watts climbs a ladder barefoot, but is wearing heels when she gets swept up by Kong.

However, when watching The Chronicles of Narnia, Sandys says he saw mistakes involving snow which were “quite obvious” – like a clear handprint on a pole which was then shown smudged.

Despite the high number of errors, these films are still far from the 2005 record holder, Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. That movie has 141 goofs to date, and, says Sandys, “There was a mistake in the trailer.”
