JURASSIC PARK IV by David J.

Darabont

Based on Michael Crichton's "Jurassic Park"

December 2007 Draft

EXT. ISLA NUBLAR - DAY A downpour of rain... A military caravan is trekking through the thick foliage of the island, when they encounter a T-Rex. It looks at the team of soldiers and twists its head like a curious bird. EDDIE, the man in the clean black suit, steps out of the lead truck with a high powered rifle. He looks through the scope and aims carefully at the T-Rex’s eye. EDDIE You’re a big clumsy creature, that’s why you became extinct. You were wiped out by a meteor for good reason. Now you will be wiped out by me. You’re the last one, buddy. Eddie pulls the trigger on his rifle. Nothing happens. He pulls it again. Nothing happens. The T-rex charges toward the caravan. EDDIE (pounding on rifle) C’mon you piece of crap! The T-rex slams into the lead truck, which crashes into the vehicle directly behind, causing a domino effect. As Eddie fiddles with his rifle, the T-rex goes around picking off soldiers. INT. TROOP TRUCK - DAY It forces its head through the side of a troop truck. The soldiers scurry back and huddle together. SOLDIER #1 nudges SOLDIER #2. SOLDIER #1 Shoot that goddamn thing! SOLDIER #2 I’m outta ammunition! The T-rex roars as its head presses against the canvas ceiling. EXT. ISLA NUBLAR - DAY The T-rex backs up from the troop truck, its mouth stained with blood. It swings back toward, Eddie. Eddie aims his rifle again and pulls the trigger.

2.

A large feathered dart shoots the T-rex in the neck. It falls down and splashes in the mud. Eddie walks over to the T-rex. He pulls out the dart and smirks. EDDIE Too bad you didn’t evolve for an immunity against poison. Eddie throws the dart behind his shoulder. It lands in a puddle of water, which make concentric circles, as the island reverberates from the clapping thunder. DISSOLVE TO: EXT. UNIVERSAL LOGO - DAY A globe spins against a black background, encapsulated by large letters which read, UNIVERSAL. EXT. USC - DAY - ESTABLISHING The University of Southern California. Lots of students. INT. LECTURE HALL - DAY The lecture is seen behind a tall thin man with brown hair, facing out toward a huge crowd of students. GRANT (back facing) Yes, most scientists believe that the dinosaurs went extinct because of a meteorite. But what most people don’t know it was in fact double impact... A spirited looking boy raises his hand for a question. GRANT Questions will be answered after the presentation. MAX interrupts anyway. MAX Your meteorites are a fantasy! The reason the dinos went extinct is because of gradual climactic change. (MORE)

3. MAX (CONT'D) The disappearance of key plant species and an inability to adapt to colder weather is what really did them in.

The camera turns to reveal Grant’s calm but irritated face. GRANT Would you please come up on stage for a minute? Max looks at the others, unsure. GRANT I’d like to show you something. He reluctantly stands up and goes on the stage. GRANT (gestures) Step here for a minute. Max walks out, dead center for everyone to see. Grant leaves for a minute and returns with a beach ball painted in the likeness of a meteor. GRANT Now imagine for a second you are a dinosaur. I know it’s difficult. Just try. Max is tense, motionless as Grant circles around him. GRANT Okay, here I have a meteor. You are dinosaur, a little, little dinosaur. I throw this meteor at your head. Grant throws the ball at Max, the crowd laughs as it bounces off his head. Twice. GRANT

Grant picks up the ball and throws it again. GRANT So you’re alive, you’re still standing, you’re still on stage. Nothing has happened. Grant takes out a tiny meteorite from his pocket and shows it to the crowd.

4.

GRANT (showing meteor) But what if the meteor was made out of a dense material, like this? Grant throws the meteor at Max’s head. Max flinches. GRANT Hurts? Okay. Now take that little pebble of a meteor and increase the size by a million... Then multiply the speed by a hundred... Do you think you’d be dead? Max concedes with shoulders slumped forward and an embarrassed face. Grant pats Max on the shoulder. GRANT Go have a seat, son. INT. BACKSTAGE - DAY As the students leave, Grant tramps down a small set of stairs. A lady in shadow appears in front. GRANT Sorry, I’m not signing any books today. ELLIE (in shadow)

No?

GRANT Unfortunately. Grant walks forward. ELLIE comes out from the shadow. She is absolutely stunning, more gorgeous than ever. Age has only made her more attractive. The fine lines on her face draw toward her pouty lips. Ellie? GRANT

ELLIE I really enjoyed the lecture, Alan. But you were a little rough around the edges -- as usual. GRANT He’s a tough kid. He can take it.

5.

INT. CAFETARIA - DAY Grant and Ellie are in line, waiting to buy food. ELLIE It’s a shame we can’t see more of each other. I guess we’re all busy. GRANT When did we last meet? 2001, I think... So why are you here? ELLIE Working on a little project for the university. GRANT What’s it about? The line moves forward. The lunch lady looks at Grant. ELLIE (teasing) It’s a secret. GRANT (to lunch lady) I’ll have a bagel with cream cheese. (to Ellie) Oh come now. You can tell an old friend, can’t you? ELLIE (to lunch lady) A salad and water, please. (to Grant) Okay, I’ll explain it when we sit down. Ellie and Grant take their meals and sit down at an empty table. ELLIE Do your remember, Jurassic Park? GRANT Don’t remind me... Wait, don’t tell me...

6.

ELLIE After InGen went bankrupt they auctioned off their assets. GRANT What are you saying? ELLIE The university purchased some of the technology Hammond invented. They’re using it to replicate velociraptor blood... They believe it can fight disease, as a sort of super antibiotic. GRANT Are you sure they aren’t using it for something else? ELLIE It’s legitimate. GRANT Since when did you start getting into medicine? Ellie rests her face on her hands and smiles. ELLIE Wow. It really has been a long time hasn’t it? EXT. INGEN OFFICE - DAY - ESTABLISHING The ghost of glory’s past. A quiet grey stone building sits outside while the wind gently blows trash down the sidewalk. INT. INGEN OFFICE - DAY In a large empty room, a big black chair sits in the middle, its back facing out. It spins around. HAMMOND sighs and twirls a cane with an amber stone on top. He gets up and ambles outside through the double doors. INT. CIRCULAR ROOM - DAY Hammond enters a circular room, the center of the former InGen Office. He watches as repo men carry away his past in cheap cardboard boxes.

7.

HAMMOND (to man trying to pry away a fiberglass dino) Be careful with that! The repo man ignore him and tears away the bolted fiberglass dino, leaving only its feet. Hammond looks crestfallen. He sits down on the floor. A long shadow appears over him. Hammond lifts his head. His grown-up grandchildren, TIM and LEX, lift him off the floor. Tim puts his arm around Hammond. TIM Let’s go grampa. The three quietly exit as a ray of light shines through skylight, highlighting the sparkling dust hanging in the musky air. EXT. VERMONT AVE - DAY An arm spray paints a white line across the asphalt. Two cars pull up and we see a crowd of people. In the yellow car, LOGAN. In the red Cadillac, Max and his girlfriend, SASHA. LOGAN You ready for this? MAX Those textbooks won’t buy ‘emselves. Sasha looks at Max. SASHA Really, Max. Racing for textbooks? MAX It’s a guy thing, Sasha. Max puts on his glasses. MAX If you wanna leave, you can. Sasha buckles up her seat belt. A SCRAWNY kid raises a pistol in the air. SCRAWNY (deep voice) On your marks...

8.

The cars rev their engines. Get set... SCRAWNY

Max squeezes the wheel of his car. Ready... SCRAWNY

Logan hangs a pair of dice on his mirror. Go! SCRAWNY

Max and Logan step on the gas. Logan’s car zooms off. Max’s car just sputters. MAX Aw! Not now! Max hops out his car. MAX Pop the hood, Sasha! Sasha pops the hood. Max takes out a multi-tool from his pocket and fiddles around inside. He slams the hood down and jumps back inside the car. Let’s go! MAX

Max presses on the gas. The car takes off at lightning speed. It catches up to Logan’s yellow car. Logan looks out, surprised. Holy shit! LOGAN

Sasha waves goodbye to Logan as the Cadillac zooms ahead and goes past the finish line. EXT. SASHA’S HOUSE - NIGHT Max pulls the Cadillac into the driveway, along with Sasha. He kisses her on the cheek. MAX I’ll see you tomorrow.

9.

Sasha gets of the car. She waves goodbye as Max takes his car into the driveway next door. EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - NIGHT Max blows Sasha a kiss, then he goes inside of the house. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAIN FOYER - NIGHT Max enters the house, his ears pick up on a sound, a light jazzy music. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - DINING - NIGHT Grant and Ellie tap their wine glasses together and smile at each other as the swig down the dark purple liquid. Max enters the room. Dad? MAX

GRANT Ellie, I’d like you to meet my son... Max. Ellie reaches across the table and shakes Max’s hand. MAX What’s going on here? You’re not having a romantic dinner are you? GRANT Max, don’t be ridiculous. She’s an old friend. Max spots the wedding ring on Ellie’s finger. GRANT Have a seat, son. MAX No, I think I should... Sit down. GRANT

Max sits down on Grant’s command. ELLIE So, how old are you exactly?

10.

MAX Old enough to drink. Ellie raises an eyebrow. She smirks and pours Max a glass a wine. Grant takes away the wine glass. GRANT No. He doesn’t drink. ELLIE Oh. My mistake. MAX I’m kind of a monk when it comes to alcohol. I just don’t like the stuff. For obvious reasons... ELLIE What do you mean by that? Grant looks at Max and shakes his head. MAX My mom died in a car accident. ELLIE Oh that’s so sad. MAX And I think by my previous statement, you can guess how it happened. Ellie looks at her watch. It’s way past midnight. ELLIE Oh shoot. I gotta go. Ellie stands. Grant gets up from his seat. So soon? GRANT

ELLIE I have to be at the lab six hours. GRANT Well, let me see you to the door. Max continues sitting as Grant shows Ellie to the door. He smells the wine, makes a disgusted face.

11.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAX’S ROOM - DAY Morning has come. The alarm clock on Max;s night stand goes off. Max searches with his arm, trying to find the snooze button. But he reaches too far out and accidentally tumbles to the floor. Thud! GRANT (OS) Everything alright up there? MAX Yeah. I’m just exercising! Max gets up and rubs his head. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - KITCHEN - DAY Max runs into the kitchen and grabs his knapsack. Grant is already awake, making breakfast -- orange juice, burnt toast and tofu sausages. As Max is about to leave... GRANT Breakfast is ready! Max reluctantly takes a seat. Grant puts the food onto a plate and serves the unappetizing melange. Max picks up the blackened toast. It snaps in half. Eat up. GRANT

MAX I’m not really that hungry. GRANT A growing boy needs to eat. MAX (to self) Eat what, that’s the question. GRANT What was that? MAX I have a stomach ache.

12.

Max gets up. MAX I’ll eat the breakfast when I come home! Max runs out the kitchen. EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - BACKYARD - DAY Grant puts on his famous hat and walks into the backyard. He hears the sound of a child playing through the fence. He walks over to look. There is a toddler playing with disfigured G.I. Joes in a sandbox. GRANT Whatcha got there, Jeff? JEFF looks up. GI Joe! JEFF

Grant reaches into his back pocket and takes out a toy dinosaur, a triceratops. JEFF What’s that? GRANT A triceratops. JEFF Twy-sawah-tops? GRANT Would you like to play with it? Jeff waddles over to Grant and lifts his head. Grant reaches over and hands him the toy. Jeff looks at the toy. He runs back to his sandbox and uses it to fight with the GI Joes. Grant lifts his hat and smiles. EXT. BEACH - DAY Max and Sasha are at the beach, relaxing under a big umbrella. Max is reading a book, “The City and the Stars”.

13.

MAX I love the weekend. Sasha lifts her sunglasses and sees a crowd gathering by the shore, staring out. Max! What? SASHA MAX

SASHA I think something’s going on. MAX Let the coast guard worry about it. Sasha takes Max’s book. Max looks at the crowd. MAX So there’s a bunch of people staring at the water... Sasha gets up. Max follows her as she goes to join the crowd. They push through to the front. MAX I don’t see anything. Sasha points to a little island. SASHA Over there. There is a silhouette of an Apatosaurus, swaying its head back and forth. MAX It couldn’t be... EXT. LITTLE ISLAND - DAY A stout man in overalls with the words “NuTech” emblazoned on the front, is controlling a fake robotic dinosaur with a radio. INT. NUTECH BOARD ROOM - DAY Eddie, the CEO of National United Technology, is standing in front of his peers in a dark room, lit only by a projector.

14.

On screen is a picture of tourists bunched together, artificially smiling. EDDIE If we make this thing... we can be bigger than Disney Land... There’s no stopping us. We have the real estate. We have the technology -which we got for dirt cheap -- and we virtually have no competitors. The Chief Marketing Officer, the CMO, raises his hand. Yes? EDDIE

CMO When you say ‘virtually no competitors’, what exactly do you mean by that? EDDIE I mean -- no competitors. Not even the old, Jurassic Park. The U.S. Military and I got rid of that problem. It was a real hazard. CMO Even with what we have now, I still think it’s too dangerous. EDDIE It’s been more than a decade and a half since the original park opened. Technology has advance significantly. It would be nothing but safe. The CHAIRMAN rubs his chin with skepticism. CHAIRMAN I realize we have this technology, Edward, but it doesn’t mean we have to use it. EDDIE Did you not watch the video I showed you. Did you see how the people at the beach reacted? It wasn’t even a real dinosaur... Imagine what they would pay to see a real one.

15.

INT. LARRY KING LIVE - NIGHT Grant looks at LARRY King across the table. There’s a twinkle in his eye. LARRY You are the dinosaur man. GRANT Some people call me that. LARRY Even after the horrific tragedy on Jurassic Park, you still maintain an interest in dinosaurs. Why is that? GRANT I’ve grew up with dinosaurs all my life, both in the dirt and above it -- and I believe they’re creatures that need our respect. My reverence for them, what they’ve done to my life, will never die down. Just because you’ve loved and lost, does not mean you can love again. LARRY And let’s talk about your book for a moment... Larry King lifts a book and shows it to the camera, “Dances with Dinosaurs”. LARRY Why the strange title? Dances with Dinosaurs. GRANT A dinosaur is an agile creature. When you go face to face with one it’s like a dance. Except if you screw up you won’t get dumped, you’ll get eaten. LARRY That actually make sense. Grant and Larry snicker together.

16.

INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT Ellie turns off the television. She takes off her glasses and puts them on the night stand behind. She turns off the lights and spreads out her limbs. There is a knock at the door. Ellie turns on the light. She puts on a robe and goes to answer it. When she opens the door there are two police officers standing in front of her. OFFICER #1 folds his arms. OFFICER #1 Are you Miss Sattler? ELLIE Dr. Ellie Sattler, yes. OFFICER #2 speaks up. OFFICER #2 Sorry to bother you so late in the night, but we need to ask you some questions. ELLIE What about? OFFICER #2 We believe your laboratory has been broken into. ELLIE You’re kidding me. What did they take? OFFICER #1 Microscopes, lab equipment... that sort of thing. OFFICER #2 At first we thought they were taking something of more value, but it turns they just might be hoodlums -- trying to make a couple extra bucks. ELLIE So what can I do?

17.

OFFICER #1 Come down with us to the lab. Let us investigate the crime scene. That sort of thing. ELLIE Why are you coming to me? Shouldn’t you speak with the University? OFFICER #1 Are you not the lead scientist of the project? ELLIE Okay. I just need to put something more appropriate. OFFICER #1 Take your time. Ellie closes the door. INT. LABORATORY - NIGHT Ellie does a retinal eye scan and enters the lab with the two police officers. They use their flashlights to light the way. The three of them walk together and look around. ELLIE It doesn’t appear as if the place has been broken into. OFFICER #1 I’m gonna go check ‘round back. Officer Smith is gonna ask you some questions. Okay. ELLIE

As Officer #2 questions Ellie, Officer #1 goes to the back. CUT TO: He finds a computer in the corner. He turns on the monitor, where there is a password screen. Officer #1 sticks a USB key into the tower case and uploads a program. The program unlocks the computer and gives him access to a menu.

18.

CUT TO: Meanwhile, Ellie is still talking to Officer #2 as he jots down notes. ELLIE I really don’t know. OFFICER #2 So you don’t remember the last people who visited this laboratory? ELLIE A lot of workers come in and out. It’s hard to keep track. But generally without authorization, nobody can get in. CUT TO: Back with Officer #1. He is typing away on the keyboard in an encrypted language. After punching enter, a message come up, “Access Granted”. A cylindrical tube pops up on the adjacent counter as cold white smoke billows onto the ground. CUT TO: Officer #1 joins Officer #2 as he flips his note pad close. OFFICER #2 Okay Dr. Ellie. Thank you for your time. We’ll let you know if anything crops up... Are you alright to drive back alone to your hotel? ELLIE I should be fine... It’s a bad area, but I’m only there for a bit ‘till I find an apartment. OFFICER #1 Well you know who to call if there’s trouble. Officer #1 and Officer #2 leave. Ellie looks back, as if she feels something suspicious has just occurred.

19.

INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY Max is on the couch watching TV when a newscast comes on. INT. NEWSCAST - LABORATORY - DAY The JOURNALIST holds a microphone close to her mouth. JOURNALIST I’m Marie Ching, here at the University of Southern California. I am in the laboratory, where a robbery has recently taken place. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM Max shouts to Grant as he watches. MAX Dad my school’s on TV! I’m busy! GRANT (O.S.)

INT. NEWSCAST - LABORATORY - DAY The newscast continues. JOURNALIST Nothing it appears, at first glance, is missing. But if we go to the back of the lab we can clearly see a crime has taken place. The cameraman follows the journalist as she goes back where there is the protruding cylindrical tube -- empty. JOURNALIST (hand points to container) Here you can see an empty cylindrical container. This is where the item in question, has been stolen. Several tubes of dinosaur DNA... Police are not sure how it was stolen, as there is no evidence of a forced break in... The Journalist brushes back her hair.

20.

JOURNALIST But say they are working on it. Although it does not seem to be a top priority for them, as there are ‘more important’ issues to deal with. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - LIVING ROOM - DAY The phone suddenly rings. Max mutes the television. He picks it up. MAX (on phone) Hello? Oh hey, Sasha. Yeah. I’m not really doing anything right now. Okay. I’ll met you there. Bye. Max hangs up the phone. EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY Protesters march around the construction site, holding antiJurassic Park placards. As they shout their slogans and scream, Max drives up with his convertible. He spots his Sasha waving her fist in the air. SASHA Jurassic Park is dangerous! We don’t your Jurassic Park! The Construction workers try to get back to work, but they are violently pushed back by the protesters. INT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - CRANE - DAY On top of a crane, Eddie is looking down at the protesters. EDDIE Damn hippies. EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY Max gets out of his car. He pushes through the crowd and taps Sasha on the shoulder.

21.

Sasha! Sasha turns around.

MAX

SASHA Max! You came! Sasha gives Max a placard. Hold this! SASHA

Max puts the sign down. MAX I didn’t know you wanted to meet me for a protest... I have other things to do. SASHA Like what?! MAX Actually, I’m not against Jurassic Park. What? SASHA

MAX I’m not against Jurassic Park. What? SASHA

MAX I LOVE JURASSIC PARK! Sasha and the others turn and stare at Max. Uh... MAX

They turn back and continue protesting. Sasha bring Max out of the crowd and takes him aside to talk. SASHA What do you mean you love, Jurassic Park?

22.

MAX I’m just not against... I want to see the dinosaurs.

SASHA Are you crazy?! They’re building it in the city. (points to ground) Here! MAX So what’s the problem? SASHA What’s the problem? Do you remember what happened to your dad? Do you know how dangerous these things are? MAX My dad’s alive. Even if he was dead... that doesn’t mean they should ban an amusement park. SASHA This isn’t an amusement park. It’s a bunch of businessmen playing, God. And you know what happens when people play, God. MAX No, I don’t Sasha. Why don’t you tell me? SASHA Bad stuff! Bad stuff happens! MAX I’m not against Jurassic Park. You can’t force me to take on your beliefs -- against science. SASHA Don’t put words in my mouth. MAX Well -- don’t put values in my brain! SASHA Are you going to protest or not?

23.

No.

MAX

SASHA Fine! Fine! We’re not going out anymore! MAX You’re breaking up with me because I won’t protest?! That’s ridiculous... Fine! Fine! I’m out of here. Max storms off and jumps into his Cadillac. SASHA Good riddance! The wheels of Max’s car kicks up dust as it leaves the construction site. Eddie appears on the horizon. He walks confidently and approaches the crowd. He steps on top of a box to address the people. EDDIE Excuse me... The protesters boo. EDDIE I know, I know! You’re angry... Well I’m angry too. A BIG DUDE steps out and bellows. BIG DUDE What’re you angry about?! EDDIE Global warming... Isn’t that why y’all are protesting? Global warming. I know, I know. The park is going to take up a lot of resources... But we’re using solar energy to run it! We’re trying to be as responsible as possible. Sasha turns to one of the protesters, BIG LADY. SASHA Is that what we’re protesting about?

24.

Yeah.

BIG LADY

SASHA I thought we were protesting against them ‘playing God’. BIG LADY No! We’re protesting against the deforestation they’re doin’ to build the park. It’s gonna seriously contribute to global warming. Oh no. Sasha runs off. SASHA Max! I’m coming! The Big Lady shrugs and turns back to the protest. BIG LADY Tree murderer! INT. PARK - DAY Grant is walking in the park with Ellie. ELLIE What’s it like being a single parent? GRANT It’s not so bad... when I see him. ELLIE Aw, that’s how all kids are. GRANT Even yours? ELLIE (teasing) GRANT SASHA

No. Oh.

25.

ELLIE So, did you hear about what happened? GRANT I’ve been busy. Fill me in. ELLIE Somebody stole some DNA samples from the laboratory. GRANT (sarcastic) Is that all? Grant and Ellie duck under a branch as they walk. ELLIE No... It gets worse. GRANT What could be worse? ELLIE I think I let the robbers in. GRANT What was that? ELLIE They were dressed as police. GRANT Are you in trouble? ELLIE No. They dismissed it. GRANT All is well then? ELLIE Not exactly. The DNA they took is -A baseball hits Grant in his shin. He jumps up from the pain, “Oooh! Ow!” ELLIE Alan are you okay? Grant stops jumping. A LITTLE GIRL runs up to him.

26.

LITTLE GIRL You okay mister? Grant picks up the baseball and gives it to the Little Girl. GRANT I think this belongs to you. LITTLE GIRL Real sorry. I’m new at this. The Little Girl takes the ball and runs off. ELLIE Kids, gotta love ‘em. Really... GRANT

EXT. TROPICAL RESORT - DAY Officer #1 and Officer #2, now identified by their real names, WES and DEAN, have a seat by Eddie, sitting at the round glass table. They shake hands. EDDIE So nice to see you. Likewise. WES

EDDIE Do you have it? Of course. DEAN

Wes hands Eddie a package. Eddie puts it in a briefcase and hides it under the table. WES Being a bit paranoid aren’t we? EDDIE You can never be too careful... By the way, did anyone follow you? WES We were like ninjas.

27.

EDDIE That’s great. DEAN ...I don’t think it’s possible. EDDIE What’s not possible? DEAN I understand how they did it with the other dinos. They extracted the DNA from mosquitos and recombined it with their modern ancestors. Okay... EDDIE

DEAN So, there aren’t any mosquitos underwater. The WAITRESS arrives. WAITRESS Can I take your orders gentlemen? Eddie takes out a hundred dollar bill and hands it the waitress. EDDIE Beat it toots. The men are having a discussion. The Waitress takes the money and leaves. EDDIE What were we talking about? WES Dinos underwater. DEAN What’s the deal? EDDIE Right. A good question... I never thought about it. You’ll have to ask the scientist. Eddie takes out a smart phone and connects a call to Ray ARNOLD. Arnold squints on the LCD screen.

28.

ARNOLD (waking, night where is) Mm... Mr. Soros? What’s the matter? EDDIE I have a question for you. How do you get DNA from a creature which dwells underwater? ARNOLD Simple. Chip ‘em out. EDDIE Chip ‘em out? ARNOLD A lot of sea creatures from the Jurassic, and even the Cretaceous period, became frozen in bodies of water when the climate changed... thus preserving their genetic code. Thank you. EDDIE

ARNOLD No problem, boss. Eddie hangs up. EDDIE (to Wes and Dean) Does that answer your question? EXT. SEA - CRUISESHIP - DAY John Hammond is lying down on a lounge chair with his hat over his face. A hand reaches down and removes his hat. Hammond looks up. HAMMOND Excuse me, I was using that to cover my face from the sun. I’m sure it was a mistake, if you’d just -The CRUISE-LINE WORKER throws that hat, it catches in the wind and falls off board. Oh my. HAMMOND

29.

CRUISE-LINE WORKER You’re, John Hammond. I know it! Aren’t you?! Hammond stands up. He adjusts his shirt. HAMMOND I think we have a misunderstanding. Yes, I am John Hammond... but likely not the John Hammond you are looking for. CRUISE-LINE WORKER John Hammond of Jurassic Park? HAMMOND Okay. I am the John Hammond you’re looking for... What is it you want from me? CRUISE-LINE WORKER Do you know who Thomas Cory is? HAMMOND I haven’t the slightest. CRUISE-LINE WORKER Let me refresh your memory. The Cruise-Line Workers bows forward and starts acting like a T-Rex. Oh my! HAMMOND

The Cruise-Line Worker stands straight and stares Hammond deep in his eyes. CRUISE-LINE WORKER Your little project ‘Jurassic Park’ killed my dad! HAMMOND I’m terribly sorry? What is it I can do for you? The Cruise-Line Worker grabs Hammond by the shirt. CRUISE-LINE WORKER Stop the new Jurassic Park from opening!

30.

HAMMOND I can’t! I’m powerless! CRUISE-LINE WORKER You’re a filthy rich businessman! And you can’t stop it from happening?! HAMMOND The lawsuits... I haven’t enough money. The Cruise-Line Worker pulls back his fist. Hammond closes his eyes. He hears a yelp. He looks and sees Tim and Lex shoving the Cruise-Line Worker into a pool of water. The Cruise-Line Worker falls in with a giant splash. LEX You bastard! Pick on someone your own age! Tim goes over to Hammond. TIM Gramps, you okay? Hammond adjusts his glasses. HAMMOND Yes. I’m fine. CRUISE-LINE WORKER (splashing) Help! I can’t swim! Lex rolls her eyes and throws the Cruise-Line Worker a rescue pole. She drags him in. The Cruise-Line Worker crawls on the chilly blue tile and coughs out water. INT. COFFEE SHOP - DAY Ellie, Grant and Max are in a coffee shop. Max looks dejected, extremely anxious. His hands are folded, kept close to his body. GRANT What do you think the robber plan on doing with that DNA?

31.

MAX (lamenting) Can we stop talking about stupid dinosaurs for a minute?! GRANT Son, you shouldn’t interrupt the grown-ups. MAX I’m just saying. It’s stupid. Dinosaurs are big and dumb. Max sinks down. GRANT Oh trust me son. They are not dumb. Max rolls his eyes. GRANT Max. Sit up. Max groans and sits up. GRANT Why did you come here? I thought you wanted to speak with Dr. Sattler? Well... MAX

GRANT Now, act like an adult please. MAX Okay... Dr. Sattler... ELLIE You can call me Ellie. MAX Dr. Ellie... ELLIE Just Ellie. MAX Ms. Ellie...

32.

GRANT (irate) Max... Dad. MAX

Grant rolls his eyes. He takes a sip of his coffee. ELLIE Max, what are you taking at USC? MAX The usual. Archaeology. Anthropology. Genetics. Anything science. No arts. Yuck. ELLIE Ha, ha. Like father, like son. GRANT There are subtle similarities. ELLIE (to Max) So you like dinosaurs? MAX Yeah. I do. But here’s the thing... You can only do so much with bones. And that’s left me a little bored. ELLIE Dinosaurs are best left underground. Trust me on that one. MAX I wanna see their teeth, I wanna see their saliva. Full flesh creatures, not these computer simulations and junky stuff like that... Boy I hope they open that new Jurassic Park soon. What? GRANT What? ELLIE

MAX Are you two not aware? They’re creating a new, Jurassic Park. They’re calling it, the zoo of the twenty first century.

33.

GRANT How come I never heard about this? MAX What’re you talking about? The news was everywhere online. GRANT I hate computers. MAX Well you should’ve known. Why’d you think they called you to do those lectures at the University? GRANT I thought it was about my book. MAX That book is boring. ELLIE Where are they building the new, Jurassic Park? MAX I can take you there if you want. Grant and Ellie stand up. They rush for the door. GRANT Come on, Max! EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY Ellie, Grant, and Max, get out of the Cadillac. With Grant leading the way they walk through the construction site; which is now more substantially built. They go over to a trailer where Grant knocks on the door. GRANT Hello! Is anyone there? The door slowly opens. Eddie smiles. EDDIE The famous Dr. Grant. (looks at Ellie) And the famous Dr. Sattler! What a pleasant surprise!

34.

GRANT Why are you doing this? EDDIE Doing what? Living in a trailer? Well I like to keep a close eye on things. Quality and safety is always my policy. GRACY Jurassic Park! Oh that. Eddie steps aside. EDDIE Let’s speak in my office. INT. TRAILER - DAY Grant, Max, and Ellie sit down on the couch. Eddie is in the kitchen area putting on a pot of water. EDDIE Can I offer you anything to drink? I’m having some tea myself. GRANT No, thank you. Eddie puts a tea bag into a cup and pours hot water onto it. Then he splashes it with milk and sugar. He sits down with the others. EDDIE Now what questions do you have Dr. Grant? I know you must have many, considering your checkered history. MAX What the hell does that mean? Relax son. GRANT EDDIE

ELLIE Mr. Soros. You have all the money in the world. Why do you want to open a new park?

35.

EDDIE I love dinosaurs. What can I say. I love the past, I love paleontology... This isn’t a project just for money you know... although that’s one of the incentives. GRANT Jurassic Park is not safe. EDDIE Wrong Mr. Grant! The OLD Jurassic Park wasn’t safe. This one is entirely new. It has state of the art technology. And I mean state of the art. Not even the US military has access to it. GRANT Your company is not God. EDDIE Close to it. ELLIE National United Technology is a great company, but what you’re doing is beyond comprehension. Don’t you understand? EDDIE NuTech has sunk nearly half a billion dollars into this thing... Do you really think I’m gonna stop it because of two retired paleontologists? GRANT Whatever it is, we’re to warn you. Building park for dinosaurs in suburbia is a really, idea. just trying an amusement the middle of really, bad

EDDIE It’s not an amusement park, Dr. Grant, it’s a zoo. A Jurassic Zoo. MAX (to self) That’s a catchy name.

36.

GRANT Well when you do open it, would you please let us know? EDDIE Absolutely! I can even give you free tickets if you want. Eddie takes out four tickets and gives them to Grant. Grant puts them aside on the coffee table. GRANT No. We want to know when you’re opening it up so we can get the hell out of here. EDDIE Oh, is that how it is? ELLIE It’s not that we don’t like you Mr. Soros. It’s just that... Dinosaurs have a tendency to eat people. GRANT Dr. Sattler’s new apartment doesn’t have security to stave off velociraptors. Max bends over to tie his shoelaces. He looks up through the glass coffee table and with sleight of hand, grabs the four tickets. He puts them into his pocket. EDDIE I know you’re only here temporarily Dr. Sattler -- but it’ll be perfectly safe. Excuse me. Yes? MAX EDDIE

MAX Is there a washroom in here? I really have to go. EDDIE There’s a port-a-potty outside. May I... MAX

37.

GRANT Hurry up, Max. Max gets up and leaves the trailer. EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY Max goes around the trailer. He walks ahead, through an assortment of dinosaur paraphernalia. He reaches a bright aqua port-a-potty. Max opens the door. His face goes sour as a rancid smell drifts his way. Oh God! MAX

Max slams the door shut. He sees a crew of workers pushing a large opaque cage on wheels. What’s inside cannot be seen. However Max’s curiosity is piqued. When they set it down and leave, Max tiptoes over. He goes up to the cage and looks through the holes. Hello? MAX

He doesn’t see anything -- but something sees him. It looks back through the inside of the cage. MAX Must be empty. As Max pulls his face back a roar is heard and a claw jumps out the hole. Max falls back from the surprise. Holy crap! MAX

Max stands. He takes a flashlight and shines it inside, trying to get a better look. MAX What are you? More roars as the cage rumbles with commotion. MAX I know what you are. Max circles around the cage, thinking, listening to the noises.

38.

MAX Velociraptor? No, couldn’t be... Segisaurus? Naw. Struthiomimus? No! I know, I know this... Tyrannosaurus Rex. Max gets closer to the cage. A baby. MAX

The baby T-rex makes a shrill cry. MAX Looking for mommy, huh? Max reaches into his back pocket and takes out a pepperoni stick. He peels off the plastic and sticks it through one of the holes. The pepperoni stick quickly pulls back. A munching noise is heard. MAX That’s a good boy. GRANT (OS) MAX! WHERE ARE YOU?! See yah! MAX

Max dashes off, follows the voice of Grant. EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - NIGHT Rain has drenched the construction site... It is now surrounded by a high chain link fence, to keep out protesters and dissidents -- but it’s quickly dismantled when a jeep smashes through. A man in a white suit hops out of the vehicle. He hobbles through the puddles of water carrying a cane. He makes his way over to a big gray box rooted in the ground. HAMMOND This ought to hamper their little venture. Hammond pries it open. There is an LCD screen with a keyboard. Hammond hacks through the system and types something we don’t see. Then he closes the box and walks away with a grin.

39.

EXT. CONSTRUCTION SITE - DAY The construction site is more built up than ever. It’s actually starting to look like a park. There are workers busily getting thing prepared; every little detail, from the placement of rocks, to the angle of the lights. Nothing is too small to look over. Eddie walks to the gate at front. He looks up and guides the crawler crane operator with his hand gestures, the one holding the big electronic sign. EDDIE A little to the left! (looking) Yeah! That’s it! The crane lowers the sign, somehow, perfectly onto the ground. It looks great, angled just right for visitors to see. Eddie gives a thumbs-up. The crane swings away and leaves. Eddie grabs a cord from the back and connects it into an outdoor socket. The sign lights up: LOADING WIRELESS INFORMATION The loading bar completes, 100%. Eddie smiles. A message pops up: WELCOME TO JURASSIC HAZARD EDDIE (to self) What the hell? (to others) Alright?! Who’s the wise-guy?! Whoever it is, you’re fired! EXT. SASHA’S HOUSE - BACKYARD - DAY Max is in Sasha’s backyard, throwing pebbles at the window on the left. MAX Sasha! Come on! Talk to me! I’m sorry about the argument we had! The window opens. An older man sticks his head out the window, SASHA’S FATHER.

40.

SASHA’S FATHER For the love of Pete! The other window boy! Sorry! MAX

Max throws a pebble on the window to the right. The window opens. Sasha! MAX

Sasha sticks her head out. SASHA We broke up remember? MAX That protest wasn’t even about the dinos and you know it! SASHA I know! That’s why we have to stay broken up, otherwise I’ll look like a doofus. Although my IQ does border on that of a genius. 130. SASHA 130. MAX

MAX Yeah, okay. We all know. SASHA Just saying. MAX So, can we get back together or what? SASHA Don’t be so desperate, Max. We always get back together. It’s just an episode. I need some space. MAX But I have tickets for Jurassic Park! Max shows the tickets he swiped from Eddie’s trailer.

41.

SASHA You just don’t get it do you? I’m against it! Why? MAX

SASHA My dad was a scientist on the ol’ JP. MAX He was a scientist on the original Jurassic Park?! Sasha throws one of her stuffed toys out the window, at Max’s head. SASHA Keep it down would you! MAX So are we going to Jurassic Park or what? SASHA You really don’t -- ugh! Sasha slams her window shut. MAX Sasha! So what’s the answer?! EXT. GRANT’S HOUSE - MAIN STAIRS - DAY Max creeps down the stairs, very slowly, trying to keep quiet against the creaking and squeaking. GRANT (OS) You’re not going to Jurassic Park are you?! MAX (to self) Crap. (to Grant) Yeah... GRANT (OS) I’m coming!

42.

What?

MAX

Grant joins Max on the stairs. GRANT I said I was coming. MAX I thought you... GRANT I can’t stop you from going, so I’m coming with you. MAX Gonna try and stop a dino rampage, huh? GRANT Don’t joke about that. Grant puts on his famous hat. EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY Grant and Max walk up to the humongous gates as a sea of people easily walk past them. Grant is extremely apprehensive. GRANT I know it’s not the same, but it still gives me a chill. MAX You never know if you don’t try. GRANT Problem is, I have. EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - INSIDE GROUNDS - DAY Grant, still cynical as ever, stares at the smiling families, posing with the dinosaur statues. GRANT Oh they have no idea... Max takes Grant by his arm.

43.

MAX Come on, this is the safety zone. The dinosaurs are up ahead. But -GRANT

Max grabs Grant and drags him along. EXT. COASTER ZONE - START AREA - DAY Max and Grant are inside a car, reminiscent of the old, Jurassic Park... Except these vehicles have no roofs GRANT This is crazy. These things don’t even have roofs. There’s another set of people in the vehicle. The LITTLE BOY with the stuffed dino looks at Grant. LITTLE BOY The park shuts down at night and when it rains. The place is solar powered. There’s no need for a roof. GRANT You obviously haven’t been around dinosaurs. The cars speed up and go further down, past the flat plain land and into the denser jungle. EXT. COASTER ZONE - JUNGLE AREA - DAY There are no wires or barriers to keep the dinosaurs away. Grant of course notices this right away. GRANT No fences. No barriers. This is madness. MAX Dad, you’re bein’ a buzz-kill. Enjoy it for what it is. EXT. AMONGST THE TREES - DAY An unseen creatures gallops, running fast, running forward.

44.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - JUNGLE AREA - DAY A raptor jumps out from the bushes. It shrieks and flashes its teeth. Everyone but Grant and Max becomes startled. His eyes look down and see the creature has a thick cable attached to its leg. GRANT How clever... The raptor tries to tug itself forward, looking at the tourists like they’re the next meal. MAX (stunned) Wow. A real velociraptor... Hey what if somebody crazy decides to jump outta these things? GRANT They’re lunch. LITTLE BOY Actually the cables have hollow tubes attached in ‘em. If a passenger jumps out of the vehicle, a sedative is released into all carnivorous creature... and if that doesn’t work it has electric wires to zap ‘em... It’s also to prevent chewing. MAX You seem to know a lot about this stuff. LITTLE BOY I’ve been preparing for the grand opening all my life. MAX All your life? How old are you? The Little Boy raises his fingers, gesturing seven. Max raises an eyebrow. The car starts moving forward. It takes them toward the tunnel area.

45.

EXT. COASTER ZONE - TUNNEL AREA - DAY The cars go underground into the tunnel area. It’s lit by an orange light, torches lined against the wall. A very eerie atmosphere. MAX What do you think we’ll see in here? GRANT Not something good I assure you. The car stops by an enormous glass panel, part of an aquarium. MAX (excited) Oh no. Oh no. We’re going to see, sea creatures! One of the passengers takes a picture. The bright flash dazes grant. He rubs his eyes. GRANT I don’t see anything... LITTLE BOY I bet it’s a T-rex. MAX T-rexes don’t go under water. LITTLE BOY Gimme a break, I’m seven years old. Max turns back, stares at the glass. The car starts moving. MAX Hey! What a rip-off! We never saw anything. As Max leans out of the car, Grant pulls him in. SPEAKER IN CAR (VO) Please do not lean out the vehicle. EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY Grant and Max are leaving the park.

46.

MAX Man! What a rip-off. I hardly saw anything. GRANT It’s probably for the better. MAX I’m glad we got these tickets free. You know how much it costs to get in? A hundred bucks! GRANT Max, there’s no need to complain... It’s a well run park. MAX That’s not what you said the last time you went. GRANT Those were different circumstances... Very different. A HEFTY MAN in a blue suit accidentally bumps into Grant, causing his hat to fall. HEFTY MAN (face not seen) I’m terrible sorry. Grant and the Hefty Man bend over at the same time. Their eyes meet. AL GORE smiles. He grabs Grant’s hat and hands it back to him. Is that? Al Gore! MAX GRANT

AL GORE That’s me, alright. (smiles) So nice to meet you Dr. Grant. I loved your book. Al Gore shakes Grant’s hand. GRANT I never knew you had such a keen interest in dinosaurs.

47.

AL GORE Actually, I’m visiting the park to commend them on their environmentally friendly practices. The park uses 100% alternative energy -- mainly solar power... Oh and I also received free tickets. (jokingly) Who doesn’t want to see dinosaurs for free, am I right? Yes... GRANT

AL GORE So are you gents environmentally friendly? If you don’t mind my asking. We try. MAX

AL GORE You know, global warming is an important issue -- especially in California. The west coast is one of the most vulnerable areas. MAX I think it’s pretty safe. AL GORE To each his own I suppose... It was nice meeting you, Dr. Grant. (looks at Max) And... Max. MAX

AL GORE Yes, Max. Nice meeting you both. Al Gore nods. Grant tips his hat as he walks away into the park. GRANT (to Max) Now surely you cannot say your visit was boring. MAX Pure luck. The park stills stinks.

48.

GRANT Yeah -- too many dinosaurs. EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY A boxy Hertz RENTAL CAR whizzes down the road, through the rain, thunder, and lightning. INT. LONELY ROAD - RENTAL CAR - DAY Ellie squints as water pounds down against her windshield, the wipers going back and forth. She turns on the radio. RADIO (VO) Look out Californians! We are going through some severe weather! Take out the umbrella, the cats and dogs are falling! It is strongly advised that you do not drive in this stormy weather. ELLIE Now he tells me. RADIO (VO) Stay indoors and lock the windows! A hurricane warning is in effect. If you are bombarded by hail, please do not -The radio fizzles and goes out. Ellie reaches for the big black knob and turns it off. She continues driving, struggling to see where she is. ELLIE God, where the hell am I? Ellie brakes. She reaches into the glove compartment and takes out a map. As she reads the map a baseball size chunk of hail falls onto her windshield -- crack! ELLIE (screams) Jesus! Ellie folds the map and throws it to the side. She steps on the gas.

49.

EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY The car moves forward, the front wheel falls into a pothole full of water. INT. LONELY ROAD - RENTAL CAR - DAY Ellie tries to gas it, but her car is totally stuck. Damn it... ELLIE

Ellie grabs a magazine wedged between the seats, she jumps out the car and uses it for cover. She looks at the stuck wheel. Then she takes out a cell-phone. INT. GRANT’S HOUSE - GRANT’S ROOM - DAY Grant is putting supplies into a large green military back pack, when the phone on his night stand rings. He drops what he’s doing and goes to answer it. The reception is not very clear. GRANT (on phone) Hello? INTERCUT TELEPHONE CONVERSATION ELLIE (on phone, in car) Grant! Ellie? GRANT

ELLIE I need some help. GRANT Where are you? ELLIE I’m on the road -- stuck! GRANT What’re you doing on the road? Everyone’s evacuating the city.

50.

What?

ELLIE

GRANT There might be a flood... There’s something wrong with the dam. ELLIE Just come and get me will you? GRANT You want me to go out in the midst of hurricane weather? You gotta be kidding. Grant! ELLIE

GRANT I’m only teasing! I’ll be over there in a minute. Where are you? INT. LONELY ROAD - MAX’S CAR - DAY Grant is driving Max’s car. Max in the backseat with his arms folded. MAX I still don’t see why you won’t let me drive. It’s my car! GRANT I paid for it... Plus, I’m a better driver. MAX Yeah right. Grant sees Ellie waving in the rain. EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY The Cadillac stops by Ellie. The front right door swings open. Ellie, dripping wet, gets inside. INT. LONELY ROAD - MAX’S CAR - DAY Ellie shivers as Grant spins the car around and drives in the opposite direction.

51.

ELLIE Thanks for coming so soon. GRANT It was nothing. ELLIE So there’s a hurricane, huh? GRANT Apparently. We’re going to leave the city... Only temporarily of course. ELLIE The weather here is never usually this bad. It’s unusual. GRANT When’s the last time you been here? ELLIE I was fifteen. GRANT Well, there you go. Times change. MAX Will you two stop flirting with each other, please? GRANT Max, don’t be so rude. We’re not flirting with each other... (look to Ellie) Are we? ELLIE I guess some flames never die. MAX (rolls eyes) Oh my God. EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY The Cadillac slows down as a long line of cars appears ahead. INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY Max wipes the fog off his window and looks.

52.

MAX Jeez that’s a long line up. GRANT Patience is a virtue. MAX I don’t even know what that means. GRANT It means to pipe down... It’s not so bad. MAX Compared to what? Exactly. GRANT

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY The cars are going mad, people honking their horns and screaming. But Grant is calm, he slowly moves the car forward. INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY Ellie slumps back. ELLIE This is the pits. MAX Speaking of the pits... Dad, can I use your cell-phone? I gotta call Sasha, see if she made it outta the city. GRANT It’s not gonna work. MAX How do you know? GRANT Trust me. Not in this weather. Lines must be jammed with people calling their loved ones. MAX Will you just --

53.

Grant tosses Max the cell-phone. He picks it up and dials, Sasha. He puts the phone to his ear and waits. Well? GRANT

Max frowns and gives the cell-phone back to Grant. GRANT I’m sure she’s fine. EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY A tidal wave washes out the bridge, taking the car in people into the “drink.” INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY Grant, Ellie and Max lean forward and look in shock. MAX Did you just -EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY A car in the back bumps into Max’s Cadillac, pushing it forward. More cars fall into the water. INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY Grant looks in his rearview mirror. GRANT What the... The car is moving forward. ELLIE The bridge is out. GRANT It’s not me. I’m not... Grant steps on the brake, the car keeps moving. Grant looks in the rearview mirror, sees the car pushing forward. Grant winds down his window and screams outside. GRANT The bridge is out! Can’t you see!

54.

INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - OTHER CAR - DAY An old lady with coke bottle glasses steps on the gas. She can barely see. EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY Max’s car keeps moving forward. The old lady keeps pushing against the bumper. INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR - DAY Grant puts the car in reverse. Come on. GRANT

The car barely budges. GRANT What’s wrong with this piece of junk?! MAX Why do you think I asked you for all that money last week?! I needed cash for a new set of tires... These are bald! EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY Max’s car is the last vehicle, besides the old lady pushing, ahead the remains of the bridge. It’s being pushed to the edge. INT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - MAX’S CAR Grant tries to turn the wheel. MAX Turn the wheel, get this thing around! GRANT Can’t you see I’m trying that! MAX Try harder!

55.

GRANT Get ready to jump! What?! MAX

EXT. BEFORE THE BRIDGE - DAY Grant, Ellie, and Max jump out of the car. It falls into the water and gets swept away. Grant gets up, angrily. He goes up to the last standing car, the one with the old lady. GRANT What’s wrong with you?! You almost killed my wife and kid?! Huh? ELLIE

GRANT (flustered) I mean -- YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN! No response. Grant opens the car door of the BUICK. The old lady is passed out. Grant leans over and puts two of his fingers on her neck to check her pulse. She’s dead. GRANT She’d dead. EXT. LONELY ROAD - DAY The old lady’s car, the Buick, speeds down the road. INT. LONELY ROAD - OLD LADY’S CAR - DAY Grant and Ellie are up front. Max is in the back cornered with the old lady’s corpse. MAX Uh... Can we switch seats? GRANT What’s wrong? Not enough room back there? MAX A mansion wouldn’t be enough room.

56.

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY The water is getting high, several inches. EXT. SOLAR PANEL FIELD - DAY A park worker surveys the solar panel field. He looks up at the sky, the clouds covering every bit of the sun. INT. POWER CENTER - DAY A worker sits down at a computer monitoring the energy levels, they’re quickly depleting. GEORGE turns his head back to Eddie. GEORGE Sir, I don’t think we’ll have enough power to run the park. It’s too cloudy. Eddie takes a sip from his glass of scotch. EDDIE What do you mean there isn’t enough power? What about battery storage? GEORGE Same thing. (clicks around on computer) I think we overestimated its capabilities. Wind? EDDIE

GEORGE Knocked out. The wind knocked ‘em down. EDDIE Use the gas. GEORGE I don’t think there’s enough. EDDIE Don’t patronize me.

57.

George moves the mouse cursor and clicks on an icon to engage gas usage. EXT. WATERY ROAD - DAY The Buick’s wheels roll through the water. INT. WATERY ROAD - OLD LADY’S CAR - DAY Max is at the back of the car, sitting in the middle, the old lady is gone. MAX Where are we going? GRANT I don’t know. MAX But you’re dad. You gotta know. GRANT Parents seem like they know everything -- but it’s usually just ad-lib. MAX And you’re telling me this now? GRANT Max, stop chattering. Look to see if there’s any place we can take shelter. Max rolls down his window and sticks his head out. The rain falls on his face as he looks up at large hotel building. MAX Hey how about that? Grant looks out and stops the car. GRANT I don’t know. Do they take VISA? Ellie getes out of the car. GRANT Ellie, wait! Grant and Max get out.

58.

EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY Ellie wades through the water. She gets to the front doors and tugs on the large golden handle, “Ugh!” Hold on... GRANT

Grant goes to help Ellie. They both pull on the door handle. The pressure of the water, the rising water, is keeping it close. Simplify! MAX

Max kicks the glass of the door and steps inside. Grant and Ellie follow. GRANT (shrugs) It is effective. INT. BIG HOTEL - LOBBY - DAY Max, Ellie and Grant walk cautiously through the lobby. It’s very luxurious. High ceilings. Lots of room. Gotta be at least 4 stars. MAX You think anyone else is here? (shouting, hands around mouth) Hellooooo! GRANT Hold on a moment. Grant sits down on a chair. GRANT I need to rest. MAX Come on, let’s look around. GRANT Tell me if you find anything. Grant rests his hat over his face.

59.

But...

MAX

ELLIE I’ll come with you. Oh, okay. MAX

GRANT Don’t get in trouble. INT. BIG HOTEL STAIRWELL - DAY Max and Ellie trek up the water soaked stairs. MAX What was it like in the original Jurassic Park? ELLIE It’s not like the one they have now. MAX If I met a T-rex, I don’t think I could stay still. I’d run. ELLIE Most people would. MAX ...So you and my dad used to be an item, huh? ELLIE I guess you could say that. MAX What do you see in him? I mean no offence, but he’s kind of boring. ELLIE He has courage when it counts. MAX That’s a quality women look for in men? ELLIE I guess. Damsel in distress, right?

60.

Hmmm...

MAX

A noise echoes in the stairwell. A loud THUMP. Max puts his arm out in front of Ellie and stops in his “tracks.” MAX What was that? ELLIE It’s probably nothing. MAX I should check it out. You stay here, m -- an. Max’s face goes flush red, embarrassed, almost calling Ellie his mom. MAX You stay here, maaan. I’ll check it out. Ellie raises an eyebrow. Max continues up the steps. The noise happens again. Max gets to a dark corner. He takes out a little LED flashlight and shines it down. It barely lights up the place. MAX I come in peace! Max slowly walks up, a kid named RAVEN pops out at him. RAVEN BOOOOOOOOO! CUT TO: Max tumbles down the stairs in front of Ellie. Max! ELLIE

(bends down beside) Are you alright? Max rubs his head and gets up. Raven runs down the stairs. RAVEN Sorry ‘bout your head! MAX (pissed) Yeah, well...

61.

Raven gives a broad smile. One of her teeth is missing. She’s probably no older than ten. Okay. MAX

EXT. NEW JURASSIC PARK - DAY The gates to the new, Jurassic Park, are busted open. The marquee is hanging down and there are smears of blood along the battered and splintered doors. INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - FRONT - DAY The doorknob at the front door slowly turns, Raven leads Ellie, Max, and Grant inside. RAVEN This is where I’m staying. My name’s Raven by the way. They walk forward, into the living room. INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - LIVING ROOM - DAY. Grant’s eyes wander around the presidential suite, he gazes at the abundant luxuries. The place looks better than his own home. RAVEN You’re welcome to be my guests if you’d like. GRANT Are you here all alone? RAVEN No. Buddy’s with me. ELLIE Who’s Buddy? Raven pats the dead space beside her, like there’s something there. RAVEN My imaginary pet monkey, Buddy. (turns) Say hello, buddy!

62.

MAX Let’s find our own rooms. RAVEN Oh no. You can’t. MAX And why not? RAVEN You’ll be lonely... Plus, this place has the best view. Raven runs to the curtains and pulls them open. There is indeed a great view, looking over the whole city. RAVEN Stay won’t you? I gathered all the supplies we need to last for the entire storm season. MAX You mean you ransacked all the rooms and brought everything here. Semantics. RAVEN

GRANT Okay, we’ll keep you company. CUT TO: Grant, Ellie, Max, and Raven are sitting down on the couches sipping hot cocoa. They are washed in a warm glow emanating from the roaring fireplace. RAVEN How’s the hot cocoa, Mr. Grant? GRANT Very nice, thank you. MAX (chews on marshmallow) When do you think this thing will be over? The noise of the rain against the windows gets louder. ELLIE Soon I hope.

63.

The sound of an OPENING DOOR is heard. Grant looks behind his shoulder. GRANT I thought you said you were alone, Raven. RAVEN I never said that. A figures emerges from the shadow -- IAN Malcolm. He has a towel around his head. IAN Company! Oh my! I look like a mess! Ian puts his towel down as Grant and Ellie stand up to greet him. Ian. Ian? GRANT (starts to set in)

IAN That’s my name, don’t wear it out. ELLIE What are you doing here? IAN I can ask the same question. But I presume you came to escape the chaos -- that which I mean the really bad weather... That’s a bit of an understatement, don’t yah think? Ian walks around Grant and sits down. Ellie and Grant do the same as well. IAN This is like a family reunion, huh? (points to Max) Except I don’t recognize you. GRANT That’s my son, Max. Ian nods.

64.

IAN You look just like your dad... So might I ask where the missis is? GRANT She’s no longer with us. IAN Oh my God! She didn’t -GRANT No. This was long before. IAN Well I’m sorry to hear, anyway. GRANT (looking at Raven) So who’s the little sprite in your life? IAN I really don’t know. She just told me her name was Raven. GRANT You mean you don’t know her? IAN I... I wish I did. But she’s tight as a clam. GRANT So are you lost like the rest of us, Ian? What are you doing here? IAN In this building? Or do you mean in general? In general... I’m just on vacation. ELLIE Some vacation, huh? IAN It’s certainly better than the one we had in 1993... GRANT That memory never dies does it?

65.

IAN Chaos is not easily forgotten... And I don’t mean the Bush administration. Max stands up. MAX I have to go out for a minute. (bit nervous) I uh need to take a walk. Raven stands up too. RAVEN Take me with you. MAX Sorry. I don’t hang out with kids. GRANT (stern) Take her with you... MAX Alright, fine. (to Raven) But if you get on my nerves, I’ll -Raven looks up Max with her big beady eyes. MAX I’ll be pretty angry. EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY Max walks along with Raven as she happily splashes around in the water. RAVEN La! La! La! La! La! La! La! La! La! MAX Will you stop that? Raven and Max get under a tree. It protects them from the rain. Max reaches into his pocket and takes out a pack of cigarettes. RAVEN (shocked) Awwwwwwwwwwww!

66.

MAX What? What is that noise? RAVEN Awww, you can’t smoke. Who says? MAX

RAVEN It’s bad for you. So says the Sturgeon General. MAX Screw that fish. I need a smoke. Max takes out a cigarette. It flogs over, soggy from water. MAX Aw just great. Now what? Raven takes out a pack of Popeye candy sticks. RAVEN You can have one of mine if you want. Max looks at it. MAX ...Yeah, alright. Raven flips open the box. Max takes a candy stick, put it in his mouth like a toothpick. RAVEN How’s it taste? MAX (takes a bite) Like sugared chalk. A loud BABOOM is heard. Raven screams. She runs to Max and hugs his leg. MAX Relax it’s just thunder. It happens again. BABOOM. MAX I think it’s thunder.

67.

Max looks down. The BABOOM happens again. Concentric circles form in the water around his ankles. A T-REX ROAR bellows. MAX I think we better get back to the hotel. Max takes Raven by the hand, as they run for the hotel a T-rex twists around the corner and appears in front of them. Raven screams. Max covers her mouth. MAX Don’t move. Raven squirms. The T-rex lowers its head and looks at her. MAX (low voice) If you don’t move, he can’t see you. A T-rex is stimulated by motion. Just stay still. The T-rex roars. The wind and spittle pushes back Max and Raven’s hair. Raven gets scared. She pulls away from Max and she starts to run in the opposite direction. Max follows her. MAX I told you not to run! The T-rex’s little arms hang down as it chases Max and Raven. Raven turns into an alleway, Max goes there too. EXT. ALLEWAY - DAY Max and Raven run to the back, by the big brick wall, the dead end. The T-rex tries to squish between the buildings. It snaps its jaws trying to reach. MAX We’re trapped. RAVEN What do we do? What do we do?! Max picks up a garbage can lid. MAX Ever play frisbee with a dog? Max pulls back the lid.

68.

MAX On the count of three. One... Two... THREE! Max throws the lid. It whirls over the T-rex’s head. The T-rex turns around. Max and Raven run between its legs. EXT. BIG HOTEL - DAY Max and Raven run as the T-rex chases after them. They go through the glass door. The T-rex sticks its head through. MAX Ha! Can’t get in can you? Max picks up a pebble from the floor and flings it at the T-rex. The T-rex roars. It shoves its body through. Oh shit. MAX

The T-rex swings its tail around. Max and Raven duck out the way. They jump over the couches and run as they T-rex chases behind. They turn a corner into the hallway with elevators. INT. ELEVATOR AREA - DAY Max presses the up button for the elevator while holding Raven’s hand. The elevator doors open. A T-rex taps its toe on the floor and looks at Max and Raven. Max and Raven fall back. They scramble to their feet and run toward the direction of the T-rex. They stop in their track. MAX Oh right, the T-rex. They look behind and slowly walk backward, toward the middle of the hall, the elevator area. The raptor starts to run. Max and Raven duck down. It jumps forward -- right onto the Trex’s head. The T-rex pulls back and swings around. Max pulls up Raven. C’mon. MAX

He takes her into the elevator.

69.

INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - FRONT - DAY There is a large hole in the front door, through which Max uses to look in. Aw no... What? MAX RAVEN (OS)

MAX Hole equals bad. RAVEN (OS) Just go in. MAX Raven don’ -Raven tries turning the doorknob, the whole thing falls forward. MAX See what yah did? Sorry. RAVEN

MAX Let’s go. Try not to make any noise. Raven pretends to zip her mouth. She and Max slowly walk into the presidential suite, into the living room. INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - LIVING ROOM - DAY Their eyes go immediately to the flipped over couches. Stay here. But -MAX RAVEN

MAX DO NOT move. Max grabs a lamp, wielding it like a weapon. He cautiously walks over to the long three person couch.

70.

As Raven stands quietly, a Dilophosaur appears behind in the doorway. It leaps over to her and stands by her leg, also watching as well. RAVEN (notices)

Max?

MAX Not now. I’m busy. The Dilophosaur spreads out its frill. Max! RAVEN

MAX (turns around) What?! The Dilophosaur jumps up onto one of the flipped over couches and makes a rattling noise at Max. MAX Don’t make any sudden movements... Raven starts backing away, when she accidentally falls down. The noise startles the Dilophosaur, it turns around and screeches. Max tosses the lamp. It smashes into the Dilophosaur’s back, knocking it over. Max jumps over the couch and grabs Raven by the hand. The Dilophosaur shakes its head, dazed from the attack. Max and Raven run to the west wing of the suite. INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - WEST WING - DAY They go into a door. INT. PRESIDENTIAL SUITE - BATHROOM - DAY Max and Raven find themselves in a bathroom. They hear the noise of the wily Dilophosaur from outside. MAX Raven, you okay? Yeah... RAVEN

71.

The shower curtain behind suddenly pulls open. Max and Raven become startled. Ian Malcolm is in the freestanding tub. IAN (jokingly) Would you mind? I’m trying to have some privacy here. Raven hugs Ian. RAVEN Dr. Malcolm! MAX Where’s everybody else? IAN They went looking for you. MAX Didn’t they know I went outside for a smoke? IAN You smoke. Oh, that’s bad. MAX I know, I know. IAN Grant thought you went looking for your girlfriend. They uh took a raft outside. Search and rescue. MAX I gotta go get them. IAN No, no, no. That’s not a good idea. Stay here. I assure you they will come back. Raven climbs into the tub with Ian. MAX I have to... Max reaches for the doorknob. IAN Are you going to go back -- where the dinosaur are?

72.

Ian adjusts his glasses. IAN I think that’s a bad idea. Max starts to turn the doorknob. IAN (points to window) No, no. Go out the express route. Huh? MAX

IAN Go out the window. MAX We’re five floors up. Ian gets up and lifts the window. IAN Take a look. Max goes to look. The flood is super high. It’s only a couple feet to hit the water. MAX Okay, so what am I gonna use as a boat? IAN There’s one right. MAX (looks) Where? Ian taps on the bathtub. IAN A little duct tape and she is ready to go. Ian takes out a roll of duct tape. MAX You carry around duct tape? IAN Never can be too prepared my friend.

73.

Ian duct tapes the hole shut in the bath tub. Lots and lots of tape. IAN There. I think that should hold for your excursion. EXT. FLOODED BOULEVARD - DAY Grant and Ellie are together in an inflated raft, rowing. ELLIE That boy of yours is awfully rash... I think he gets it from you. Grant tilts his head to the side, “Probably.” Ellie pauses from rowing, she lifts up a pair of binoculars and looks down the boulevard... or what’s left of it. ELLIE He must’ve gone back. Ellie wipes the fog off the front of her binoculars. GRANT Let’s keep looking a bit longer. Grant squints and sees a motorboat. It spins around and pulls up to the raft. There is a man with a dog. The man’s name is HUNTER. The dog’s name is RUSTY. HUNTER You think you can survive in this weather with that lil rubber raft? GRANT I’m looking for my son... HUNTER Trust me. You won’t find anybody in that piece of shit. ELLIE Are you offering us a ride? Hop in. HUNTER

Grant reluctantly gets into the boat. Ellie does too.

74.

HUNTER Now that I’m trying to make friends here -- but just so you know, my name’s Hunter. And my dog, his name is Rusty. ELLIE (pats dog) Good boy. Rusty barks. GRANT I know it’s not very sturdy, but I think we should keep the raft. HUNTER Right! Never a bad idea to be over-prepared... There’s a rope in the cooler. Grant goes into the orange cooler and takes out a yellow rope. He ties the raft to the motorboat. He gives a thumbs up to Hunter. Hunter pushes forward on the throttle. CUT TO: The motorboat speeds along the water. Hunter pulls back on the throttle and stops. GRANT Why are we stopping? HUNTER I need some gas. GRANT Where are you going to get gas from? Hunter takes off his shirt and dives underwater. Several seconds pass. Hunter pops up with a gas nozzle. ELLIE I didn’t know those things could reach that far. Hunter puts the gas nozzle into his boat.

75.

HUNTER (pumping gas) It’s a new gas station. The uh hoses hang from the ceiling. (finishes) Hunter tries climbing back onto the boat, when something pulls at him in the water. What the?! HUNTER

It pulls again. Grant and Ellie grabs Hunter as the dog, Rusty, wildly barks. Hang on! GRANT

Grant and Ellie pull, but the wet Hunter slips away into the water. A cloud of blood rises to the surface. ELLIE Can dinosaurs swim? A POPPING noise catches Ellie and Grant’s look back at the deflating raft. Suddenly rock. Grant and Ellie slip and fall over. sides, trying to keep from going into the attention. They the boat starts to They hang onto the water.

The nose of the motorboat starts to tilt upward, slowly going vertical. ELLIE I can’t hold on! Ellie loses her grip, she and Rusty catch on to Grant’s leg. Ellie! GRANT

The motorboat tilts more. Ellie slides off into the water. The boat suddenly slams back down. An enormous green tail splashes in front. Ellie pops her head out of the water. Grant pulls her in as the head of a Dakosaurus surfaces from behind. He dashes to the front of the motorboat and pushes the throttle forward. He takes control as the Dakosaurus chases them. ELLIE (looks back) What is that thing?

76.

GRANT (steering) I would take a closer look at tell you, but I’m not so sure I want to do that! ELLIE Dakosaurus! It’s a dakosaurus! The motorboat takes a corner and does a drift. The Dakosaurus is catching up, only several feet away. GRANT Throw the dog! What?! ELLIE

GRANT It’ll distract him! Ellie looks at Rusty. Rust whimpers and covers his eyes. Ellie looks in the cooler as the Dakosaurus zigzags, making waves in the water. She finds a pistol. She takes it out and aims it. Three shots. Bang! Bang! Bang! The Dakosaurus submerges underwater. ELLIE I think scared it off! The Dakosaurus rises from the water, it jumps up and flips in front of the motorboat. The motorboat turns and capsizes. It sinks down. Ellie, Grant and Rusty tread water as the water motions around them, The Dakosaurus underneath, circling. GRANT I think this is the end, Ellie... Max suddenly appears in his bathtub. He waves at Grant. Dad! MAX

GRANT Max! Get out of here! The Dakosaurus starts swimming toward Max. Max tries to paddle away with a pair of bathroom plungers.

77.

As the Dakosaurus leaps up into the air, the head of an Elasmosaurus arises and snaps on to its tail. It takes the Dakosaurus and swings it around, throwing it straight through a building. The Elasmosaurus bows its neck and looks down at Max. Max sinks down and cowers. The Elasmosaurus brings itself closer, it’s a harmless creature. Seeing this, Max pets its head. MAX You’re not such a bad guy are you? The Elasmosaurus lets out a sound of contentedness, like a happy dolphin. Then it sinks away into the water. Grant, Ellie, and Rusty join Max. ELLIE Mind if we hitch a ride? Max picks up Rusty and puts him in the tub. Follow me. MAX

He spins the boat and moves forward. Grant and Ellie follow behind, slowly swimming. Max stops the boat over a flat area of water. He gets out and stands up. He’s standing on water. Tada! How? MAX GRANT

Grant and Ellie swim ahead, they crawl and stand up to. MAX Remember Dad? The convention center! GRANT (CONT’D) They have boats down there. Grant bends over and looks. Underneath the glass roof are a ton of boats. Big boats. GRANT There are boats. ELLIE How are we going to get them? Do they even have gas?

78.

MAX Yeah, yeah. This convention’s crazy. Biggest boat convention in the country. They go all out. Rusty chases his tail around in the bathtub. GRANT (points) Get on that building. Ellie looks back. GRANT Get on the ledge... Max, go. Max nods. He, Ellie and Rusty swim over to the building. They stand on the ledges. ELLIE Alright! Now what, Alan?! Grant stamps down. A CRACK noise is heard. He jumps and starts swimming toward the ledge. More CRACKING. A big hole forms as the glass gives way, water starts swirling in. Grant swims as hard as he can. MAX He’s not gonna make it! Max jumps into the water. He hangs onto the ledge and extends his legs like a ladder. Ellie grabs onto the shoulder part of his clothes to keep him from getting sucked in. Grant grabs onto one of Max’s legs. The water swirls and swirls. The convention center is filling up. Grant struggles to hold on. MAX Don’t let go! GRANT You don’t have to tell me! Rusty bites onto Max’s shirt, pulling along with Ellie, struggling to keep the two from getting swept away. The whirlpool becomes weaker. The convention center stops filling. A large Boston Whaler buoys to the top. CUT TO:

79.

EXT. FLOODED STREET - DAY Ellie steers the Boston Whaler. Max screams out. MAX There she is! Ellie slows the boat down. Sasha is sitting on top of the roof of her house. Sasha! MAX

Max jumps into the water and swims over to her. He joins her on the roof. They embrace each other. MAX I thought you were... Never mind. SASHA I knew you’d come for me. Max lets go of Sasha. MAX Where’s your family? SASHA They went away on a weekend trip. It’s just me. Ellie pulls the boat around. Max and Sasha get on. Sasha, cordial as ever, smiles and greets Grant and Ellie. SASHA (little wave) Hello Dr. Grant, Dr. Sattler. Grant and Ellie nod. MAX Let’s get out of here already. SASHA Where’re we gonna go? Everyone looks to Grant. I -GRANT

80.

A SCREECH cuts off Grant. Everyone looks up. There is a trio of pterodactyls circling above like buzzards. A cap drops onto the floor of the boat. Grant picks it up. It’s a Jurassic Park worker hat. There’s blood lined around on the inside. GRANT Ellie, start the boat. Ellie tries... The boat sputters. GRANT (looking up) Ellie! No gas! ELLIE

Sasha leans on Max. The pterodactyls land on the boat. The three of them hobble forward. As the group backs up, Rusty growls and flashes his fangs. The trio flap their wings and squawk. One of them jumps forward and puts Rusty between its beak. Hey! MAX

Max dives to grab him, but falls flat when the pterodactyls take off into the sky. Rusty whimpers, his voice gets weaker the further he goes. MAX (waving fist) You bastards! Grant puts his hands around Max’s shoulder, to comfort him. It’s okay. GRANT

Max shrugs away. Heavily annoyed. MAX Stop trying to act like things are okay! They’re not! They’re not! SASHA Max. Don’t make a scene.

81.

MAX Here we are in the middle of a... a disaster! And he’s trying to make it seem alright! Well it’s not! It’s not dad! There’s are dinosaurs trying to eat us! Max sits down. MAX (mumbles) I’m having a nicotine fit... The sound of a HELICOPTER is heard above. Grant, Ellie, Sasha, and Max look up at big black rescue chopper, a double blade CHINOOK. A SOLDIER IN A HARNESS drops down. Dr. Grant. SOLDIER IN HARNESS

EXT. OVER CITY - RESCUE CHOPPER - DAY The rain has stopped and the sky has cleared. The sun-sets as the rescue chopper flies over the flooded city -- which is barely recognizable. The place looks like a dystopian nightmare. INT. RESCUE CHOPPER - DAY Grant looks out the window. GRANT (quietly) When will people ever learn? ELLIE Alan, sit down. Take a rest. Grant sits down. He looks around at the others, Ellie, Max, Sasha, Ian, and Raven, tired and exhausted. Their eyes barely open. RAVEN (leaning on Ian) Where are they taking us Dr. Malcolm? IAN Somewhere with less water I hope.

82.

EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT The dome sports stadium is being used as a rescue shelter. INT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT There are a lot of people inside -- destitute, sick, and tired folks. Grant and the others are all grouped together. Max plays cards with Ian and Raven, while Ellie combs Sasha’s long black hair. Grant just stands. Watching over the place like a hawk. IAN (dealing) Alright the game is seven-card stud, aces high, aces low... Raven holds her cards, unsure. What? RAVEN

IAN You do know how to play poker? RAVEN I uh... what’s poker? IAN Ah, that’s right. You don’t gamble... Do you know how to play go-fish? Raven darts her eyes. IAN No? How about big-two? Big-two? RAVEN

IAN Crazy eights. Everyone knows how to play crazy eights. Raven shakes her head, nope.

83.

IAN Well. I really don’t know then... Blackjack. Huh? RAVEN IAN

RAVEN I know how to play blackjack. 21, is that what they call it? IAN Ah, so you do gamble. Okay. 21 it is. Hand me back your cards. Max and Raven give Ian back their cards. He shuffles it up and deals. Raven looks at her hand, an ace and king. Max looks at his hand, two of hearts and a queen of hearts. Hit me. MAX

Ian gives Max another card. He looks. He has a five of diamonds. Hit me. You sure? I’m sure. MAX IAN MAX

Ian hands Max a card. Max gets a ten of clubs. Damn. Bust? MAX IAN

MAX No. I meant ‘damn’ as in ‘damn that’s good.’ Max hides one of his cards in his back pocket. IAN That’s some sleight of hand you got there... (MORE)

84. IAN (CONT'D) but I remember how many cards I dealt you... Generally when you cheat you replace a card, not just put it away.

MAX (to strangers) Anybody have a checker board? CUT TO: Ellie is still combing Sasha’s hair. ELLIE How long have you and Max been going out? SASHA A really long time. How long? ELLIE

SASHA Mm... couple weeks. I think we have a pretty stable relationship. We’ve really endured. Getting over that one week hump was real tough though. ELLIE Tell me about it. CUT TO: Grant is walking around the superdome, when he bumps into a young boy holding a lamp. He looks around twelve or so -- a TWEEN. TWEEN Dr. Grant. Are you Dr. Grant? The famous paleontologist? Grant continues walking. The Tween follows him around. TWEEN You know my uncle’s actually, Jack Horner. You might have heard of him? Grant stops walking and turns to the Tween. GRANT ...How old are you?

85.

TWEEN Thirteen in November. GRANT And you enjoy paleontology? TWEEN Oh yes, very much so. GRANT Have you ever played baseball? No. Why? TWEEN

GRANT You should. Grant starts walking again. The Tween keeps following him. TWEEN Is it true dinosaurs and animals have a sixth sense? Like they can sense danger? GRANT Some people would say that. TWEEN So if a natural disaster or something like that were to hit a city, they’d know to escape? I suppose. GRANT

TWEEN Wow. You know everything. Grant stops and puts his arm around the Tween with approval. EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT A T-rex foot stamps on the ground. INT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT Everyone is asleep. They’re totally exhausted. Not a person is up -- nobody to notice the T-rex squeezing its way into the stadium.

86.

It gets through the gate and starts exploring. The T-rex gracefully makes its way over to the catering table. It sticks out its tongue and scoops up the food, even eating the packaging. As it munches down on the snacks, Raven starts to wake up. She rolls to the side on her cot and nudges Max. Though because of the darkness, she does not notice the T-rex. RAVEN (whispering) Max... Max! MAX (half asleep) What? RAVEN I need to go to the bathroom... Where’s the flashlight? Max reaches under his cot and pushes out a flashlight. Raven grabs it. Thanks. RAVEN

She gets up and turns it on. The light cuts through the dust, creating a beam. Raven wanders with her eyes half-close. The T-rex turns around and sees her. It follows her behind. RAVEN Where’s the bathroom. Gotta be around here somewhere? Raven stops walking. She shines her flashlight from side to side. The T-rex’s eyes closely follow it. Its vision being stimulated. The T-rex steps forward and lowers its head by Raven. Its nostrils flare as it blows back her hair. Raven turns around, the flashlight pointing straight in the T-rex’s eye. RAVEN Oh hello... The T-rex ROARS. Raven drops the flashlight and covers her ears. Everyone in the sports stadium wakes up. Grant darts up from his cot. Raven! GRANT

87.

The whole stadium SCREAMS. The T-rex waves its head and ROARS. All the people start running. The T-rex swings away from Raven and starts chasing the others. It snaps up one of the people. Grant, Ellie, Max, Sasha and Ian stay close together. They lay low and try to keep still. They’re the only ones. Sasha is scared out of her wits. SASHA Why aren’t we running with the others?! MAX Trust me, my dad knows what he’s doing. Sasha is on the floor too, lying still. She looks at Grant who nods his approval. As the people crowd and try to escape at the gates, they create a bottle neck. They get stuck. The T-rex tramps over to them, sees them squirming like crabs in a bucket. Screams, screams. More screams. They’re hysterical. MAX I can’t watch! Max jumps out. Max! SASHA

He goes into a silver case and grabs a flare. He runs behind the T-rex and screams. Hey! Hey! MAX

Max lights the flare. Its bright yellow-orange light illuminates the stadium. The T-rex turns around. MAX I’m looking at you ugly! Yeah! Remember me?! Max starts running with the flare. He runs through the other gate.

88.

EXT. SPORTS STADIUM - NIGHT Max runs out of the Stadium. He suddenly stops and drops his flare. He puts out his hands in surrender. Ahead of him, standing in front -- the US army. General CHARLIE bellows. CHARLIE Get out of the way! Max drops down as the T-rex emerges from the stadium. The army shine their lights. CHARLIE (signals) Fire at will! They fire their guns. Max crawls along the ground as the bullets whiz over. The army stops shooting. The T-rex swaggers and falls down. Its body sinks into the asphalt. Blood flows onto the ground, swimming over to Max. Ack! MAX

Max gets up. He stands and leans against a tank. Charlie laughs, “HA! HA! HA!” A black stretch limo swerves in front of the T-rex and brakes. Eddie steps out, and without even glancing back, walks forward and joins Charlie. He gives him a firm handshake. EDDIE General Charlie! Congratulations! CHARLIE Anything for my little brother. EDDIE How long do you think it’ll be before we can get this mess cleaned up? CHARLIE Shouldn’t be too long. We got the threat under control. EDDIE (looks at the T-rex) It’s a shame. Such a majestic creature, fell by technology...

89.

Eddie puts on a pair of sunglasses. EDDIE But I guess that’s what happens when you have a brain the size of walnut. CHARLIE (turns to men) Alright! Let’s go! Charlie hops in a tank, then he and the army leaves. As Eddie walks toward his limo, Max runs over to him. Mr. Soros! MAX

Eddie pauses and spins. EDDIE Hello there. MAX You’re the CEO of NuTech, right? EDDIE That would be true. MAX Jurassic Park. You created the new Jurassic Park. EDDIE I had a hand in it, yes... MAX I wanted to ask you if -Max goes wide-eyed. Yes? EDDIE

The T-rex rises up behind. I -MAX

EDDIE What is wrong with you?

90.

The T-rex opens its mouth and scoops up Eddie into its mouth. It swallows him and fall down dead onto the stretch limo. Crushing it flat. Grant, Ellie, Sasha, Raven, and Ian come out of the stadium. Whoa... RAVEN

Ian saunters over to the front of the T-rex and rests his head on its neck. IAN (listening) It’s definitely dead. Grant circles around the carcass of the T-rex. GRANT Max, what did you do? A GROANING is heard. Grant pulls open the door on the driver side. The LIMO DRIVER crawls out. Grant helps him up. Thank you. LIMO DRIVER

The Limo driver hobbles away as the rest gather around Max. They look at the T-rex, wondering how such a large creature could die. GRANT Man and dinosaur just weren’t meant to co-exist. I’m tired. Me too. RAVEN MAX

The group turn from the T-rex. They walk away from the stadium, out onto the street. Their feet splash in the water. EXT. HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD - NIGHT As the group walks onto the boulevard they see it is completely ravaged, the place filled with a variety of dinosaurs, terrorizing the remaining people.

91.

Alan?

ELLIE

Grant squints. He sees an approaching tidal wave. Run... GRANT

EXT. GALLERY TOWER - FRONT - NIGHT Grant leads the gang and takes them over to a tower that looks like a pagoda -- an art gallery. He kicks in the glass door and the group runs inside. They run up the spiralling stairs as the tidal wave crashes and the water follows them from behind, getting higher and higher. Not only that but there are also little fish creatures trailing at their heels, snapping like Piranha. Saurichthys. As they run, Raven trips and falls. Grant picks her up and carries her in her arms. They get higher up the stairs. EXT. GALLERY TOWER - ROOFTOP - NIGHT The group gets to the flat rooftop. They stand and watch as the water sweeps away the dinosaurs, once again making them extinct. A raptor snaps its jaws as it passes by. A BIG BOAT comes down the water. It stops by the Gallery Tower, with Hammond at its helm. He waves and smiles in his classic white suit. Dr. Grant! INT. BIG BOAT - DAY Max is resting on a couch, between Sasha and Raven. Ellie is sitting on a wooden chair, wistfully looking out the circular window. Ian is wrapped in a blanket, sleeping a La-Z-Boy. EXT. QUIET WATER - BIG BOAT - DAY As the sunrises... HAMMOND

92.

Dr. Grant is alone leaning on the guardrail of the deck. As he looks out, the door behind him opens. Hammond’s grandchildren, Tim and Lex, slowly come out. Dr. Grant? TIM

They join Grant by his side. LEX What’re you looking at? GRANT (smirks) Oh nothing really... Pulling away from the three, we see the boat is sitting entirely on top of water, not a building or a bump sticking out. Further going out, the whole city is flooded. Then further going out, the whole country... FADE OUT. THE END
