Jurassic Park III it had a stunning scene cut from the final movie where a raptor was riding a dirt bike. The third film of the Steven Spielberg original. Jurassic Park The franchise deviated from the established winning formula of the previous two films, resulting in the highest-grossing film in the series. Released in 2001, the film saw Sam Neill reprise his role as Dr. Alan Grant, who is tricked back to Dinosaur Island (albeit this time on Isla Sorna) and forced to help find the son of a man. businessman who has been stranded on the island for 8 weeks after a parasailing accident.
From the beginning, Jurassic Park III faced numerous production difficulties. Perhaps the most famous of the production problems was the fact that the planned script was scrapped just before filming began. This meant that much of the film was put together on the fly with complete sequences and concepts that it was not entirely known how they would fit into the overall story. In fact, in the months leading up to production, two other ideas for the film were scrapped, including a story focusing on teenagers trapped on Isla Sorna. Since the cast and crew were literally only filming the pages they had on the day of filming, the joke on set was that a full script would be presented as a gift to everyone involved. This lack of pre-planning meant that many storyboard sequences had to be cut from the final film.
In a tweet from his podcast, Stuck in Sorna, Daniel Stephen sat down with the storyboard artist to Jurassic Park III, Dave Lowery, who explained one of the incredible scenes cut from the final script. The scene sees Eric Kirby (the boy trapped on the island) being chased by velociraptors as he races through the jungle on a dirt bike towards a cliff. As Lowery explains, his storyboards then saw one of the raptors bounce off behind Kirby, who quickly pulls the parachute on his back, resulting in the raptor landing on the dirt bike and driving it off a cliff to the ground. death of the creature. Hear Lowery explain the entire sequence below:
While the scene never saw the light of day, what’s interesting is that a similar sequence featuring a dirt bike and raptors became the fourth installment in the franchise. Jurassic World. The scene in question saw Chris Pratt racing on a motorcycle alongside his herd of trained raptors. Although no raptor ever got on their bike to lower it off a cliff, it still incorporates all the themes of the cut. JP III storyboard, featuring a dirt bike, raptors, and jungle races. It is not clear whether the jurassic world The scene is a throwback to the cutting sequence.
Yes, the whole scene Lowery describes above is ridiculous and exaggerated; However, in a movie that tried to live up to the hype of its predecessors, a scene as wild as that could have helped it stand out. based on Jurassic Park III‘s With mediocre reviews, many of which denounced the film’s creative decline, such an imaginative sequence could have helped win over more viewers. Ultimately, it’s a shame that such a high-profile film had to suffer from production difficulties that resulted in the removal of interesting scenes from the final film.
