|Jurassic Park III Film|
Ellie and Grant ExtendedEdit
A scene, that many fans feel should have been kept, was a longer goodbye between Alan and Ellie. There was also another scene in the dining room where Jack the Parrot responds with "Bullshit!" when Ellie and Alan are discussing the Velociraptor pack communication theory.
This scene was included in the movie trailers for JPIII. It was the plane taking off at sunset possibly from Montana to go to California for the Kirby's staging to proceed to go to Isla Sorna.
Extended Spinosaurus versus TyrannosaurusEditThese scenes mostly consisted the animatronic Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex sizing each other up to fight, mostly roars and growls and then finally a slap across the face from the Spinosaur to the T. rex. This scene was seen in the trailer. In one of the behind the scenes documentaries, it shows that extended CGI footage of the battle also exists, with the T. rex holding its own against the Spinosaurus for a short period of time.
"You should come look at this!"Edit
Another scene from the trailer and it's generally considered to be an alternate take of Paul yelling for Grant. Not really a cutscene, but there are two perspectives for this scene now.
As Dr. Grant, the Kirby's, Billy Brennan, and Udesky go into the Embryonics Administration these scenes were supposed to extend it likely to be longer showing a bit more depth and how large the structure was, as well as the weapons from the first film. It's unfortunate these
scenes got cut as they would've touched on the
approach of Isla Sorna being a research facility.
Udesky versus the RaptorsEdit
Udesky, in a cutscene, gets brave and uses a stick to hit the Velociraptors, but of course, the Velociraptors overpower him and injure him. This scene would have been one of the best to include in this film, but was unfortunately dropped.
An uncompleted effects shot for the awe effect of the Ankylosaurus crossing the river in front of the InGen Barge in the River Bank scene. Overall a neat scene fans wish also was included.
Makes the Spinosaurus' first appearance in the final film less surprising, but this scene was an excellent shot.
Another scene, that was removed concurrently, was Paul Kirby's line of him "can't help from feeling a little bit offended" when the Ceratosaurus sniffed them after everybody in the group dug through piles of Spinosaurus droppings for the satellite phone.
Paul & Amanda RekindledEdit
This scene was believed to show Paul and Amanda considering getting re-married for Eric as he brought them together. Also around this scene there was supposed to be a conflict with the Pteranodons and the Velociraptors.
According to an early script during this time of the film the speed boat incident's cause in the beginning was revealed to be the fault of the aggressive Pteranodons. (This was likely cut because the Pteranodons were locked up in the aviary at the time.) Grant also thanks Ellie for sending the rescue at the end of the scene, but this was also cut.
Velociraptor versus the PteranodonsEdit
Actor Sam Neill said himself in an interview that there would be a sequence where a Velociraptor "interacts" with the Pteranodons. Rumors about this cut scene state that they would supposedly fight but again, the scene never made it to the final product.
The Death of Ben HildebrandEdit
According to the official shooting script, we should've seen Ben Hildebrand attacked and killed by a pack of Velociraptors. Also, Eric films the Raptors as they race back into the dark jungle.
The Death of NashEdit
Nash was originally going to die by a Velociraptor attack. According to the official shooting script, Nash stands up to a Raptor and gets killed. However in the Final Movie it is Udesky who is the one killed by the Raptors.
The Death of UdeskyEdit
Originally Udesky (Ordesky, according to the official shooting script) was supposed to have been killed by the Spinosaurus and the others watch as this happens. However, the role was given to Nash instead.
Velociraptor versus AnkylosaurusEdit
At one point, a scene was planned involving the Ankylosaurs battling against the Velociraptors.
Paul and Amanda KirbyEdit
There is a lot of dialogue removed between Paul and Amanda including one particular scene where the two argue over who gets custody over Eric.
Giving of the EggsEdit
Originally only Grant and Eric give the stolen eggs back to the Velociraptor pack.
According to the official shooting script, there was supposed to have been a scene where Eric is in the compound and notices freshly made footprints.
Two different versions exist in script format where the Pteranodons attempt to attack the group while inside (and another outside) the rescue helicopters, falsely assuming they are a predator. Another variation of the ending in the original script had the Spinosaurus being killed off by a pack of Velociraptor after it attacks the group on the raft. Another alternate ending was of the Spinosaurus attack the Marines/Navy after the group left the island, but it was taken out because of pacing.
Baryonyx (a close relative of Spinosaurus, but smaller and without the sail on its back) was considered in place of the Spinosaurus, during early pre-production phase. Spinosaurus was ultimately chosen, both for being bigger and more impressive with such a sail.
When Udesky threw off his backpack and fled into the forest he fell. Then he got up and heard the raptors. It was taken out because of pacing.
When the crew entered the lab, Paul was supposed to see a broken coat hanger. It was taken out because of pacing.
At the beginning of the movie, there was supposed to be a paleontologist in Egypt uncovering a Spinosaurus tooth. This scene was likely removed for being insignificant to the film's plot.
