Mistakes you never noticed in Spectre – Ian Fleming provided the world with its most iconic spy. In 1952 Casino Royale was published to widespread praise and James Bond was gifted to the world. Fleming produced an additional 11 Bond novels, producing one or more a year between 1953 and 1966, including Dr. No (1958), Goldfinger (1959) and You Only Live Twice (1964). In 1964, Fleming also wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

In 1962, director Terence Young brought James Bond to life on the big screen in an adaptation of Dr. No featuring Sean Connery in the title role. The following year, Young directed From Russia With Love. In 1964, Guy Hamilton was brought in to direct Goldfinger. Terence Young returned as director for the 1965 adaptation of Thunderball. Adaptations continued over the following years through a variety of actors and crew members with the most recent batch of films beginning with a Casino Royale reboot in 2006.
Casino Royale re-established the series, creating a new timeline and narrative that separates itself from any previous Bond story lines. Daniel Craig took on the role of 007 with Martin Campbell sitting in the director’s chair. In the subsequent 2008 film Quantum of Solace, Marc Foster took over the role of director and it was another four years before 2012’s Skyfall made it to the big screen. This year, the latest Bond film, Spectre has marked Craig’s fourth turn as 007 and it is fast becoming one of the highest grossing Bond films so far, catching up with Skyfall’s outstanding box office performance.
However, as with many films, there are always small mistakes that slip through the net, regardless of how big and successful the film is – and Spectre is no exception.
Here we look at 10 mistakes that you may have missed.
10. Confusing License Plates
The license plate on the Range Rover used in the winter car chase shows the number IL 25768H. Not only does this plate contain room for any letters, the first two of which are the letters IL. This stands for Innsbruck Land which would place the car in the province of Tyrol, yet the flag displayed on the centre of the plate is that of the province of Vienna. Not only is this factually incorrect, but the two provinces are not even close to each other.
