The director Colin Trevorrow said it was all real. Well, up to the dinosaur part, they haven't figured out how to get around the AHA rules. The stunts for the kill scene were done by [Zara Young's actress Katie McGrath] herself. “She was game,” Trevorrow said. “That’s really her, that fall, her under the water, that’s really the actress. She completely ...

It was hungry, with a large, loud, distract, and injured prey within reach. It has gone at least half a day without being fed. The Indominus Rex is louder by multiple orders of magnitude than the crowd, a single point of sound, and likely in the right hearing range of the Mosasaurus. The Indominus is distracted. Ambush predators take their prey's attention ...

If you watch the previous movies (specifically Jurrasic Park 1993), it's explained that the raptors are able to communicate because they have the need for it in order to hunt as a pack. The T-Rex is a loner and does not communicate; no need. Additionally, even if the t-rex could communicate, what would they say? "Hey, man, I'm part t-rex too so don't fight ...

It doesn't 'help' her. It is lured into the area with the Indominus Rex and the two happen to have a fight. The flare is used, as they know from past experience, the T-rex will follow them.

As you correctly realized, the Indominus Rex never actually existed, they completely invented that creature, like the "asset" it was supposed to be. However, they didn't create it out of nothing either. Rather what they did was mix the DNA of various different dinosaurs and other animals they already had (which we can assume to be scientifically possible in ...

I think it was just a way of showing the (albeit temporary) bond that they developed during the fight. Don't think the writers meant for the audience to read much into it. T-Rex : "Dude, thanks for helping me out there. High five. Now get the hell out of my face; I've had enough shit for one day" Velociraptor : "See ya around big guy" * zips away *

It was explained by an interview with Pratt: We [Pratt and likely Director Colin T.] came together and decided that the backstory is that he’s a guy who probably trained dolphins for the Navy, and he saw what type of treatment those animals received, which is always not great for the animal. We decided that the likelihood is that, in the years that he’s ...

It is the same Tyrannosaurus Rex from the first Jurassic Park film. In the first movie, Dr. Alan Grant rescues two kids from getting attacked by using a flare to get the T-Rex's attention. When Claire throws the flare at the Hybrid Rex, she is indicating to the T-Rex to attack it. See the picture below:

I had the impression that the management team of the company running Jurassic World is different from the one that was managing Jurassic Park, although some members might be related if I recall correctly members from the first episode even appear, only to be shown leaving the company in reaction to the way it is currently managed. Now my answer will not ...

The order of the scenes is important. Indominus is chipped. Indominus gets loose. The retrieval squad follows the tracker. The retrieval squad finds the tracker was removed by Indominus. The retrieval squad take an unexpected tour of Indominus' digestive track. At some point, Owen or another retrieve the tracker + Indominus flesh. Owen uses the tracker to ...

Very early in the process, several of the actors had been, at various points, asked to reprise roles. Obviously, by the time the final draft had been accepted, Sir Richard Attenborough had passed away and he wasn't an option. Also, by that time, the story had changed and was scripted to take place 22 years after the original trilogy. A fairly detailed ...

I did some checking after my comment and found that T-Rex (fossils are found in a variety of rock formations dating to the Maastrichtian age of the upper Cretaceous Period, 68 to 66 million years ago, wiki) and Velociraptors (lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period, wiki again) did not lived on the same ...

Considering these are not real T-Rex or Raptors (in universe, states to have been manipulated to fit the public imagination of what dinosaurs should look like), not knowing how much they are manipulated, them not being natural competitors due to time periods, etc, the simplest answer is that we can't tell. Now ignoring that, we can guess based on modern ...

I watched the film again last night, and you do in fact see Barry one more time, in the Costa Rican first aid camp, for just a little less than 2 seconds, and he said something to someone off screen. I could not make out what he said, was about 2 words or so. I guess maybe we might see something in a sequel or an interview or something, but my guess is ...

In the beginning of The Lost World Hammond reveals to Malcolm that despite lysine contingency there is a flourishing population on the production facility on Isla Sorna (Site B) which was also abandoned after the park on Isla Nublar (Site A) was abandoned. This implies that the majority of animals on Isla Nublar must have died, some may have been eaten by ...

I think the link from Napoleon Wilson provides valuable insight. Another consideration is the Indominus' intelligence. As it was already mentioned the canon establishes the Velociraptor as an intelligent creature that communicates and coordinates to attack prey, the T-Rex sees no such treatment. In the first film these two species are juxtaposed with one ...

I think its a throwback to the Original Jurassic Park's ending where the T-Rex kills the Raptors and saves the protagonists. In Jurassic world here we have the Raptor, T-Rex and mosasaurus taking out the fearsome Indominus Rex and assisting the protagonists and also the reason why we don't see a T-Rex in this movie until the very last scene.

From How far would you need to fall for it to be fatal? answer on another stack, backed by NASA documents: it depends a lot on where and which way up you land - feet-first onto a soft surface is best (pretty obvious) For a hard surface, assuming you don't land on your head, up to about 12m/s impact velocity, you are almost certain to survive (...

People can survive really, really big falls. See this Guardian article. It is one of many which cover people who have survived miracle falls. From it: In 1972, Vesna Vulovic, a cabin attendant, survived a 10,160m fall when the DC-9 she was in exploded over what is now the Czech Republic. Earlier this week, a 102-year-old woman survived after toppling ...

There were survivors after the attack of Indominous Rex. Here is a snapshot. We can clearly see lifeline of ACU member in back. Since there were survivors, one of them might have brought the tracking implant.

To figure out the cost of creating a dinosaur, you can extrapolate from real life. Good sir, we live in the future! Bio Arts, is one of a handful of companies that clones people's dogs. They charge a mere $150,000 to clone a dog. However, that process is much simpler than cloning an extinct animal. Any human IVF treatment has about a 34% rate of success, so ...

Why didn't the Indominus Rex eat the velociraptors? This could just be the relative levels of intelligence between the raptors and the T-Rex, as Josh said, but I think there's a bit more to it than that. Not only are they shown to be highly intelligent, but they're shown to be social pack creatures. They live and hunt and work together, they're not intended ...

In universe it's clearly because it's supposed to be an improvement on tyrannosaurus Rex. Out of universe, the name is literary foreshadowing. It's a significant name trope. Indomitable, they try to capture and control it. They fell. Irony 101. As to the Rex part, this is rooted in modern english preference of male as the default gender. The species is ...

I think the people get evacuated some time between when the "birds" attack and when the kids return to the city. If you remember it was still day when the aviary was broken and the "birds" attacked. Owen and the other security members manage to tranquillize them and then the kids insisted that they stay with Owen. When the hunt for Indominus started it was ...

The Jurassic Park Wiki gives some clues ... in The Lost World, for example, a deleted scene has a character saying: Demolition, de-construction, and disposal of Isla Nublar facilities, organic and inorganic, one hundred and twenty-six million dollars. And the VHS Box Set for The Lost World has text on the back that reads: The dinosaurs are ...
