Hit monster movie “Godzilla” has been named the most mistake-laden film of the year so far.

The sci-fi favorite, starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, is currently riding high on both sides of the Atlantic after racking up combined opening weekend sales of more than $100 million.

However, it is also on course to set another record for 2014 after eagle-eyed cinema-goers noticed a string of errors since the film was released on Friday.

“Godzilla” has shot straight to the top of a list of shame on Moviemistakes.com with nine howling errors, including gaps between a character’s airtight radiation mask and his face, a huge explosion with a tiny shockwave, and a whispered conversation in a noisy helicopter.

Second on the list is “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” which has eight errors including a shield with three bullet holes when only two shots are fired, and a stationary car changing direction between shots.

“The Monuments Men,” “Robocop,” and “Need for Speed” all tie for third place, with five mistakes each.

Rauner: Fight Over Term Limits is Not Over

Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate businessman Bruce Rauner participates in a Republican gubernatorial candidate debate Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014, in Springfield, Ill. The four Republican gubernatorial candidates said that they’ll be willing to work with unions if elected but differed on how to approach the relationship during a downstate debate that largely focused on pension reform, taxes and just briefly on personal issues that have dogged some of the candidates.

Rauner is publicly calling upon Illinois' appellate and Supreme Courts to approve a term limit referendum
