Filmmakers are only human. Ideally, a series or blockbuster movie will provide the perfect illusion to captivate viewers. But even in the most expensive productions, there are always blunders that find their way into the finished version and thus onto the Internet. For example, during the legendary chariot race in Gladiator (2000), you could briefly spot a gas bottle. In historical drama Troy (2004) even flew a real plane over Brad Pitt. And in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002) you could clearly see that it wasn’t magic, but rather a cable that made the wizard’s apprentice fly through the air.
Errors in The Last of Us: who are these people?
Mistakes in HBO productions seem to have a long tradition. So you forgot in game of Thrones a disposable cup filled with coffee, which then had to be digitally removed in a time-consuming process. And a faux pas also happened with the prequel series House of the Dragon. In one scene, two of the main character’s fingers, which were actually amputated, were only covered with green “preventatives”, which in retrospect were not retouched became.
Something also went wrong in post-production in HBO’s new hit series. So you can see the film crew in a short scene during the sixth episode of The Last of Us. The Colleagues of Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones) and Pedro Pascal (Star Wars: The Mandalorian) hide in a wide shot 12 minutes and 37 seconds only half-heartedly under a tree and can therefore be seen on the lower left edge of the screen.
What happens to the bug in The Last of Us?
thanks to the digitalization such mistakes can be corrected relatively easily nowadays. At least when it comes to streaming goes. In this case, the source file can be revised and replaced accordingly. It would be more difficult if the release had already taken place on Blu-ray or DVD. And even in the cinema, you can’t simply replace film files with nothing, nothing for you. The individual copies are individualized for the cinemas with special access keys and cannot be downloaded as often as you like.
So, the error in The Last of Us could be fixed without much effort. However, it would be conceivable that the makers of the video game adaptation would leave the film crew in the series as an Easter egg. The seventh episode of The Last of Us (buy now ) is off Monday, February 27, 2023 at approximately 04:30 available both on Sky and via Wow. And maybe we will a small error in the new episode, which as a side note in the production history of the first season The Last of Us will enter.
