When we are first introduced to the chess players Elohim (Danny Glover) and Lu (Vinnie Jones) at the chessboard, the board itself is set up incorrectly. Kings and Queens are reversed, because the board is rotated 90º from the correct starting position. Players set up the board so that White has a dark square on his/her lower left, the a1 square, so the White Queen starts the game on a white square, d1, and the White King on a dark square, e1. Elohim's K is on d1 and his Q on e1. This is a common mistake for novice chess players.
