PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
When the island's dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen and Claire mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event.
Some puppets seen in this movie were made of different materials. For action scenes involving larger dinosaurs, like the Indoraptor, a puppeteer chased the actor or actress while wearing an inflatable dinosaur head. It might have looked ridiculous until the CGI was added, but it gave Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard and co-stars that crucial physical presence with which to interact. Another scene sees the armor-headed Stygimoloch charge through a wall. The effects team sculpted the dinosaur head in concrete and actually bashed it through some brickwork.
Relax. Anything in here would be dead by now.
The travel time in the movie is not factual. While its actual location is not revealed, Lockwood's estate is obviously not in Central America, where Costa Rica is. A ship carrying the collection crew and equipment would not be traveling more than 35 knots. At that speed it would take a minimum of 3 to 5 days to get to the coast off of California let alone somewhere else with that lush foliage. Plus, if Lockwood's estate is on the east coast, a trip through the Panama Canal can take up to 18 hours and then the ship would need to cross the Gulf of Mexico.
Post-credits scene: Pteranodons are shown flying on the Las Vegas Strip.
The Italian version has three scenes trimmed for violence before submitting the film to the local censorship commissions. These are: 1) T-Rex inside a cage swallowing a goat 2) Indoraptor swallowing the bitten-off hand of Ken Wheatley) Ted Levine and then roaring his hat off. 3) T-Rex and Carnosaur ripping in two the body of Eli Mills (Rafe Spall)
