Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) Poster

Goofs

Anachronisms 

(at around 27 mins) during Snow White's flight from the castle astride the horse, while passing through the village, a woman appears to be wearing either a brassiere or a bikini top or halter top beneath her flaxen blouse.
While Snow White, William, Eric and the dwarves are heading to the fairy forest, there is a lot of scenic panning. When the sky is shown, there appears to be a pair of jet trails.
In the morning following Gus's funeral pyre, and after Snow White, William and the Woodsman have crossed a stream, we see (at least) TWO jet streams in the sky.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Finn and the huntsman battle in the forest, Finn says, "I admire your fight, hunter." But his lips are clearly saying "huntsman."

Continuity 

As Snow White flees with the white horse, when she mounts (at around 27 mins), it has neither saddle nor blanket. As she rides into the swamp (at around 28 mins) the horse has a not quite white blanket over it's back. When the horse mires (at around 29 mins), the blanket is gone.
After the fight scene with Snow White and the Troll, they stare at each other for a brief minute and the troll leaves. Snow white at this point has her dress covering her shoulders clearly, when the camera angle changes showing the Huntsmen approaching her, the sleeve of her dress is half way down her arm , then again in an instant back on her shoulders.
At the beginning of the movie, when Snow enters the village after escaping from the castle, the horse's feet look black from the mud, in the next shot they are white again.

On first meeting the Huntsman, Snow White steals a knife from him. In the subsequent scene she repeatedly changes from holding the knife in forward and reverse grips between several of the shots.
While Snow White is lying "dead" in the white dress (at around 1h 30 mins), the position of her feet change between shots from being together to being separate to being together again.
Before Ravenna submerges her whole body into the white liquid near the start of the movie her hair is up. But when she rises out of it again her hair is down.
During Snow White's "call to arms" speech before the final assault on the castle, her hair is blowing in the wind during all the close up shots, yet when the crowd is seen in a distanced view, there is no evidence of any wind blowing.

When Ravenna merges from the "Black goop" after giving Snow White the apple, you can see the "nylon" mesh for the crow cape she is wearing, and then it disappears.

When Beith beats up the guard after exiting the sewer his pickaxe is not the one he had with him the rest of the movie. Its hammer side is clearly shorter in that scene as it basically ends where the handle meets the hard head of the pickaxe and earlier scenes there is clear distance between the end of the hammer side of the hard head and the handle.

Snow White meets the White Stag and puts her left hand on the right side of his face. Change camera and we then see that hand on the left of his face, then her entire left arm is to the right of his face.

When Snow White runs away from the archer and the white deer, the sleeves of her dress switch from on her shoulders to off her shoulders, and back again.

Ravenna pronounces her name with a short 'e' sound, to rhyme with 'Jenna'. But in flashback scenes, her mother pronounces her name multiple times with a long 'ee' sound, to rhyme with 'Tina'.

Crew or equipment visible 

(at around 1h 35 mins) A light rig can be seen near the bottom right of the screen near the candle. As the camera pans, you can fully see the light that is used to highlight the front candle stick.

Factual errors 

Ravenna plucks a yellow primrose flower from a tree branch and turns it to ash in her hand. Primroses do not grow on trees.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Finn sets out in pursuit of Snow White, the film makes the point that William is the only bowman. Yet later, when Finn makes his attack on the faerie forest, the white hart is killed by an arrow. The bowman can't have been William because this would be out of character. William is working against Finn and has been shown to be kind hearted.

The "bowman" is not William, as it clearly shows a different man.
Snow White was locked up in the tower for years without contact to the outside world. It appears that, within a few days of her escape, she knows how to wear a harness, how to ride a horse, how to handle arms, and how to lead a battle army. However, if she was a princess destined to rule (in other words, to be a queen regnant, and not to be passed over for a male), then she would have been taught these things from the time she could understand the concepts or handle the equipment. By the age of 10 or 12, when she was imprisoned, her education as heir to the kingdom would have been quite far along.

Revealing mistakes 

In the opening scene, where the girl picks the apple from the tree, there are blossoms also on the tree. Can't have apples and blossoms at the same time.
While fleeing the castle astride the white horse, despite having mounted and later mired the steed with neither saddle, blanket, nor reins, there are several shots where snow white's posture is much too straight for a bareback rider, but a rider in a saddle and stirrups which have been digitally removed, and where Snow White's hands are positioned exactly where digitally removed reins would be as well, and (at around 28 mins) the blanket has been left a bit too clearly visible to be all that easily missed.
In the opening scene where wheat is being harvested, one reaper uses the scythe 3 times on the same patch of stems yet cuts nothing each time.
During the battle between Ravenna and Snow, Snow's face hits a stone step slab and you see a burst lip, yet a few scenes later, the burst lip has vanished.

After Gus asks Snow White for a dance and she accepts, the actor playing Gus is clearly walking away on his knees. His awkward waddling gait is markedly different from the next shot, where he is shown walking into the dance area with a normal stride.

Spoilers

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

A dwarf dies yet in a later shot all 8 dwarfs are there behind Snow White even though there should be 7.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When in the castle sewer Call says "Six dwarfs against an army, I like those odds". Gus was dead and the blind Muir was left behind, so some have assumed he should have said "Five dwarfs". However, previous scenes have clearly stated there were eight dwarfs in the movie.
