Question: The sequence where the family sees their dog's kennel/chain hanging from the T-Rex's mouth...was that also used in a children's book? My wife and her sister remember it as a story in the 80s, with artwork similar to "Not Now Bernard." My wife's never seen this film, resenting the absence of Sam Neill, but recognises she might have seen the clip and it's just her memory playing tricks on her. Curious if anyone knows of an old book/story with a similar visual.
Question: Malcolm asks Roland why he'd kill a T-Rex. Roland proceeds to tell a story about a guy that went up a mountain and came back barely alive, and when asked 'did he go up there to die', responded 'no, he went up there to live'. I sort of get the point of the story, but could somebody clarify it for me?
Question: What happened to the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar? They wander around Isla Sorna on this movie, but no mention is made of the dinosaurs in the original. Does anybody know about their fate? Were they killed? Did they die naturally?
Question: In the scene just after Ian and crew have released the baby Rex back to its parents, Sarah states that the argument on T-Rex parenting "is now academic" and Ian seems to react to this with worry. Why? What is it about Sarah's statement that scares him? Or is he even reacting to her at all?
Question: In The Making Of The Lost World, there was an interview with one of the crew members. Someone mentioned a deleted scene when the men out in the long grass get attacked by raptors and some of them were hang-gliding off the cliff and get attacked by pteranodons. But in Jurassic Park III, all of the pteranodons were in the bird cage. The only pterosaurs that were free were the pterodactyls (which shows at the last scene in The Lost World). What was it that attacked the men? Were the pteranodons not in the bird cage yet?
Question: What happens to Nick? We never see him after the island.
Question: What happened to Kelly's genius friend Arby who, in the book, went with her to the island?
Question: Was there a deleted scene on what happened to Nick? He seems to disappear and reappear out of nowhere.
Question: It was mentioned that a deleted scene/shot featured a raptor escaping the ship as it crashes into the dock. What was supposed to happen to the raptor? Were there scenes planned with the raptor attacking people in the city? Was it a feeble attempt at setting up for sequels?
Question: Does the hunter who shoots the t-rex with the tranquilizer darts die on the boat or does he get off the island some other way?
Question: Why did Eddie try and pull the trailer up with the car? Wouldn't it have made more sense to use the trailer's own power?
Question: Why there was no invitation for Dr. Alan Grant and Ellie, and what were they doing at that time?
Question: Why did they release the baby Rex back to the parents? Wouldn't it have made more sense to keep the baby in the trailer with them? The parents won't attack the trailer in case it hurt their kid! They had a phone inside, they could have phoned Eddie who could have come and tranquilized them, then whilst they are asleep they could have left the baby behind and hightailed it out of there.
Question: After the rex attacks the trailer, Eddie arrives and the first thing Ian asks is where Kelly is. Eddie's response is "She's in the high hide." We see that it is lifted and lowered using the winch on the Mercedes car. They took two cars and the trailers to the island, one car is the one Nick and Sarah used to take the baby rex back to the trailer (and is later knocked over the cliff). The other car is the one that WAS powering the hide. How can Kelly still be in the high hide if Eddie uses that car to try and pull the trailers back up?
