Where did you watch this movie?

Brimming with intrigue and adventure, this magical fantasy thriller is the fourth instalment of the Harry Potter series, and details his fourth year of schooling at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Just before the end of the summer holidays, Harry and his friends get tickets to The Quidditch World Cup Final but after the match is over, people dressed like Lord Voldemort's 'Death Eaters' set a fire to all the visitors' tents, coupled with the appearance of Voldemort's symbol, the 'Dark Mark' in the sky, which causes a frenzy across the magical community. That same year, Hogwarts is hosting 'The Triwizard Tournament', a magical tournament between three well-known schools of magic : Hogwarts, Beauxbatons and Durmstrang. The contestants have to be above the age of 17, and are chosen by a magical object called Goblet of Fire. On the night of selection, however, the Goblet spews out four names instead of the usual three, with Harry unwittingly being selected as the Fourth Champion. Since the magic cannot be reversed, Harry is forced to go with it and brave three exceedingly difficult tasks. How will Harry deal with the dangerous challenges, charged emotions and deadly traps that lie ahead of him?

Dark And Difficult Times Lie Ahead.
On November 18 Everything Will Change.
Revealing Mistakes
In the second task, Karkaroff can be seen mouthing the words that Dumbledore is saying.

Revealing Mistakes
In some scenes, there is no glass in Harry's glasses, such as the scene where Harry and Hermione are talking on the bridge. Near the end of the scene, there is clearly no glass in Harry's glasses.

Revealing Mistakes
When Harry is talking to Sirius through the fire, the light effects on Harry's face should be flickering because of the fire, but instead the light effects are steady.

Factual Mistake
One of the credits is for "Assistant Choroegrapher" (sic).

Factual Mistake
The "dragon" in the movie is actually a wyvern. Dragons have four legs (as described in the book), whilst wyverns have only two.

When Wormtail uses a knife to rip Harry's shirt to get his blood, you can see the shirt is already torn and the blood and wound are already there even though he hasn't cut him.

During the Quidditch world cup camp scene, you can see what looks like a Niger flag instead of an Irish one. The two are similar, but the Irish flag has vertical green, white and orange stripes while Niger has horizontal orange, white and green stripes with an emblem. However, at a world cup it is only natural that there are people from several nations, not just the two competing in the final. We can also see an American, a Romanian and a Ugandan flag, amongst others, in that particular scene.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Harry is picking up the Licorice Snaps when the cabinet to the Pensieve is opening, you can see a glimpse of Harry's microphone box on his back under his hooded jacket.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Harry is in Moody's office after the third task, and Moody closes the cabinet door after searching for more potion, a crew member in a white shirt is reflected in the cabinet's glass.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When the camera moves to look into Moody's "pit-like" suitcase, you can see the shadow of the camera on the left.

When the Beauxbatons students enter during the opening feast, Seamus is sitting behind Ron on the near side of the table. After Moody enters and "fixes" the ceiling, he is sitting next to Hermione and Ginny on the far side of the table.

During the opening dinner, Neville switches position at the table from beside Hermione to the other side of the table, next to Dean.

When Seamus tells Dean to get more towels for Harry when he gets out of the lake, Dean runs off, but in the next shot, Dean is still right next to Harry.

When spying on Neville practicing for the Yule Ball, Harry and Ron's hair is significantly shorter than in the following scene.

Audio/Video Mismatch
Before the cannon fires for the third task, Amos Diggory can be seen hugging Cedric. He then says "my boy" even though his mouth is seen not moving.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When the Hungarian Horntail knocks Harry off his broom in the first task, he can be heard screaming, however his lips don't move.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When the contenders enter the third task arena and during this scene, there are mismatches between the bass-drum sound and the video of the girl playing it seen in the background of the scene.

Audio/Video Mismatch
In the waltz scene, the orchestra includes a couple of boys playing saxophones which are not actually heard in the played score.

Character Error
In the scene following the second task (when Dumbledore is announcing the standings) you can see Neville with Karkaroff behind him. Karkaroff has his hand on Nevile's shoulder. Not only is Karkaroff from a different school, but he is a Death Eater who knew that Neville's parents were aurors (he implicates their torturers in the Pensieve scene) and would not want to touch him as he would be viewed as a blood traitor.

Character Error
When Alastor "Mad-Eye" Moody writes on the board, he incorrectly spells "unforgivable" as "unforgiveable". The letters surrounding the inserted letter are noticeably indistinct later on.

Character Error
Harry's godfather Sirius Black is in hiding and using codenames in correspondence. Surprisingly, when Harry sends an owl post to Sirius, he writes Sirius' real name on the envelope rather than a codename.
The elves Dobby and Winky were cut due to time constraints. However, if you watch carefully in the first campsite scene, right after Ginny points to something and says "Look!" you can see two House Elves riding on llamas. They go by very fast, so they're hard to see.

In the books, Parvati Patil of Gryffindor has an identical twin Padma Patil of Ravenclaw, to illustrate the unpredictability of the Sorting Hat. In the films, however, Parvati (Shefali Chowdhury) and Padma (Afshan Azad) are not only both in Gryffindor but are played, surprisingly, by unrelated actresses.

Stanislav Ianevski, who plays Viktor Krum, has only two lines in the entire film totaling 20 words.

Mike Newell decided against the studio's original idea of adapting the extremely long book into two separate films to be released several months apart, figuring that he could cut enough of the book's bulky subplots to make a workable film. It was Alfonso Cuarón, the director of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), who convinced him.

During the underwater filming Daniel Radcliffe, a couple of the cast members, and all of the underwater crew posed for a photo which he later sent out as a Christmas card with Rudolph noses and antlers Photoshopped on everyone's faces.

Costume designer Jany Temime considered Hermione's dress for the Yule Ball as the most important, comparing it to that of Cinderella. The design of the dress was changed several times before the designers were satisfied with the results. Emma Watson was very careful not to wear it more than necessary because she was afraid that she would wreck it.

In one of the first takes of Hermione's "Cinderella moment", Emma Watson actually tripped in that fancy dress and fell down the stairs.

Mike Newell was not aware that Alan Rickman wore black contact lenses for the role of Snape until one day, when he was complimenting Alan on the amazing shade of his eyes, Alan leaned over and popped one of the lenses out.

During the course of filming Daniel Radcliffe matured a lot physically. In an interview, director Mike Newell remarked "I've just been working on a scene which we shot in our first week, and Dan still looks like the little kid that he was in Sorcerer's Stone. Now, 11 months later, he doesn't look like that at all."

The underwater scenes were shot in a huge purpose-built tank with a blue-screen background. Safety divers swam in between takes with scuba regulators to allow the actors to breathe without having to surface. Daniel Radcliffe alone logged around 41 hours 38 minutes underwater during the course of filming. At one point during training he inadvertently signaled that he was drowning, sending the crew into a huge panic to bring him back up to surface.
