Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Trivia: The way that the Indoraptor portrays itself behind the window and touches the floor with its claw in Maisie's room is a nod to the original Jurassic Park. (01:44:10)

Trivia: According to Director J.A. Bayona the opening scene is inspired by James Bond films which always open with an action sequence.

Trivia: When Sam Neill was asked if he would play Dr. Grant again he said, "You never say never, but I think it's moved on. It's different times."

Continuity mistake: When Claire and Franklin are in the rolling sphere, the door closes and locks. In the next shot, it closes and locks again. (00:43:10)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: This is incorrect. It shows the door closing twice because it is showing both the third person (camera behind Owen) and the first person (Claire's POV) of the door closing. It was deliberately showing what was happening from different perspectives.

This correction is wrong because it doesn't show different perspectives (which films do at times). In the first shot, the door fully closes before Owen gets to the sphere and before he raises his arms. In the next shot, Owen raises his hands before the door closes and is touching the sphere right as the door closes.

Perhaps your version was out of sync when you watched it. It was definitely just two shots from different angles, if you're watching in UHD on a big enough screen you can even see the camera that catches Owen's reaction.

More quotes from Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Question: Would any company in their right mind build a theme park (or any business for that matter) on a private island with a volcano? I know populated areas like Hawaii just assume the risk, but wouldn't a company that has the money to purchase their own island do their due diligence and make sure they won't be prone to a major catastrophe like that?

Answer: As it was stated in the film, the volcano had been dormant for many many years. Presumably even since well before the events of the first Jurassic Park movie in the early 90's. It was only recently, between the events of this film and the prior Jurassic World that the volcano had its surprise re-awakening.

For sure, but dormant simply means that the volcano could one day erupt again, so wouldn't it be pretty foolish to gamble on building a multi-billion dollar theme park with the hope that the volcano will never again erupt?

One would think. But just look at our world's history. Like Pompeii, an entire civilization wiped out cause they lived at the base of a dormant volcano. And then even in more recent history. Mount Saint Helens, which I've actually been to and seen the exhibits and footage of it's destruction. Foolish, yeah. But that doesn't stop us from still doing it repeatedly.

I think it's been made pretty clear over the course of all the films that the people building these parks did not exactly think everything through properly. They took a gamble on the volcano, and they lost.

Answer: The volcano has nothing to do with reality. It is a plot device more than twenty years after the original movie. It is contrived for the purpose of telling a new story. Trying to give a logical or scientific explanation is pointless.
