What’s there not to love about the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise? There is this one thing that history lovers surely noticed..the uniforms designed for the British Soldiers. They were seen in their infamous red coats, but that uniform wasn’t used until the late 1700s.
Since the movie’s premise takes place in the early 1700s, the uniform’s use wasn’t quite accurate. Not that this missed detail stopped anyone from having fun watching the films.
Marie Antoinette (2006)
“Marie Antoinette” is historically accurate almost the entire way through. It's a biography of one of the most famous historical figures in France's long history and directed by Sofia Coppola. The film is well-regarded, but one bizarre set design choice still raises eyebrows when it's watched.
In one shot, we see Marie's feet under a table, trying on some shoes, but lying on the floor are a pair of lavender Converse shoes. With the colorful sets and extravagant costumes, it's easy to miss this little detail.
This film has more than one entry on our list. Apparently, it has its fair share of historical inaccuracies that non-historians like us easily missed. However, one thing that is pure accident, is the gray sedan visible in the background of one shot during a big battle scene.
As horses charge, if you're eagle-eyed enough, you can spot a glimpse of what is clearly just a normal car, very much out of place during the thirteenth century, when the film is set.
Pride and Prejudice (2005)
"Pride and Prejudice," the film, strayed a bit from the novel’s details, which you would notice if you read the book. But, you may not have noticed a slight drift from historical facts.
Do you recall those trendy rubber boots that Lizzie (Keira Knightley) wore in the film? Those actually didn’t exist in Jane Austen’s time at all. Jane Austen passed away in 1817 when people definitely weren’t moseying around in rubber boots, as they were only invented in 1852. Luckily, the boots are mostly hidden beneath Lizzie’s dress.
Men In Black (1997)
"Men in Black" follows Jay (Smith) in his journey joining the super-secret Men in Black organization. As he arrives, he initially receives a facility tour, which means the viewers are bombarded with new details and information, making it easy for us to miss the holographic computer displaying several alien locations.
If you're quick enough, you'll notice each image is a celebrity (an alien in disguise). This brilliant shot includes celebs like Danny DeVito and Sylvester Stallone.
