Post-film discussion with Mark Loewen, Paleontology Research Associate of NHMU.
On a remote island, a billionaire creates a theme park featuring living dinosaurs drawn from prehistoric DNA. Before opening the attraction to the public, he invites a top paleontologist, a paleobotanist, a mathematician, and his two eager grandchildren to experience the adventure. However, their visit is anything but tranquil as the park’s security system breaks down, the predators break out, and the excitement builds to surprising results.
