A lot of hard work and observation goes into the worldbuilding of fantasy and historical properties. These films and television shows pass by dozen of eyes before it appears on our screen. But still, some anachronistic mistakes can happen, and the objects that don’t belong to the view can make it into the final cut. Some of the most significant properties in history have made the mistake of leaving a random water bottle or a car in the background. Unfortunately, with the modern internet age, it was noticed. So here we present you 10 Times Modern Objects Showed Up In Films Set In The Past.
1. The rogue of Starbucks cup in Games of Thrones.
The first episode of the Final Season of Games of Thrones happens to feature a Starbucks cup at the dinner scene. But subsequent releases of the show digitally removed it.
2. In the movie Braveheart, the most undeniable mistake was the accidental inclusion of a modern white car in one of the fighting scenes.
3. The ‘modern exit sign’ dangling on the doorway in the movie ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?
4. The modern extra in the movie ‘Raiders of the Last ark.’
In a scene where Indiana is mourning the loss of Mariana, just behind the whiskey bottle, there is a man spotted with a very modern outfit.
5. The movie ‘Little Women‘, set in the 1860s, mistakenly left a flask and a plastic water bottle in the background.
6. Unfortunately, a 21st-century car was spotted in the movie ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ in the middle Earth.
7. The guitar in the movie ‘Back to the Future.’
With all the time travel issues within the movie taking place in 1955, most people didn’t notice, but there was a time-traveling guitar as well. The Guitar that Marty plays at the end shouldn’t have been there as the guitar wasn’t invented until 1958.
8. The historical drama, Gladiator, has a scene when the chariot falls, and one can clearly spot the hydraulic tank.
9. The modern age Digital wristwatch in ‘Glory.’
The most stupid among the 10 times modern objects showed up is in the gripping historical drama Glory was a wristwatch worn by an extra.
10. The water bottle in the show ‘Downtown Abbey.’
The wonderful portrayal of the early 20th century British aristocracy made a very witless mistake of portraying a plastic water bottle in one of the portraits.
