A new theme park, built on the original site of Jurassic Park, creates a genetically modified hybrid dinosaur, the Indominus Rex, which escapes containment and goes on a killing spree.
The T. Rex, Rexy/Roberta's age has been a source of controversy. In real-life, Tyrannosauruses are believed to have only had an average lifespan of around twenty-eight years, assuming that she was cloned in 1993 (when the first movie came out) she would be around twenty-one-years-old (as of 2014) making her quite elderly, taken that into consideration that she has been raised in captivity and (apart from the raptor attacks in Jurassic Park (1993)) likely wouldn't have endured the harsh lifestyle a T. Rex would normally go through, this means that a Tyrannosaurus would possibly live longer in captivity than in the wild, something that is true of many real-life animals. It also seems that she is the only T. Rex in the exhibit, because at her age, she's probably no longer able to breed, and therefore probably wouldn't have much interest in a mate, even if she could produce young, it would likely be far too dangerous for the park staff to allow her to do so, after all, in The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997), it showed that Tyrannosauruses are very protective of their young.
Boys, let's do this!
The airport the boys arrive at is not the Juan Santamaria Airport in Costa Rica. Three specific items give this away. 1) The glideslope shack is on the wrong side of the runway, 2) The taxiway names at Juan Santamaria are spelled out, instead of just using a single letter, and 3) The taxiway indicated by the sign would not be E (Echo) or F (Foxtrot) as shown, as that taxiway would be off-screen to the right, still ahead of the landing aircraft.
Rather than fade to black, the Legendary logo fades to white into the movie.
TV spots featured a scene with Claire covering herself in dinosaur dung, this scene was removed for the theatrical release.
