3 EXT. BOAT - DAY 3
Ben and Eric clamber onto a makeshift PLATFORM that hangs over
the back of the board. Dangling from Ben's neck is a CAMCORDER.
You make sure to get us as close as you can,
okay? If it's a good trip, I'll give you a
Don't worry. I take you close. But not too
(rubbing Eric's head)
You don't want them to eat you.
Enrique heads toward the driver's seat and a large SECOND-HAND
WINCH bolted to the deck.
Ben and Eric nod excitedly and give the thumbs up. Ben lifts the
camcorder to the record the action.
Enrique jams the down the throttle down, and with a loud RAOR, the
speedboat shoots forward. Soon the boat is whipping across the
Strapped together, Ben and Eric lean back over the passing
water, intently watching for Enrique's signal.
As the boat picks up speed, Enrique eyes the speedometer.
Ben grabs the end of the RIPCORD attached to the harness. He and
Eric braces themselves.
Enrique finally signals with a pulling motion. He pulls
the winch, Ben yanks the cord and -
WOOOSH! A brightly colored PARASAIL blossoms behind the boat,
hoisting Ben and Eric aloft. In a big BLOCK LETTERS on the
parasail is stitched "DINO-SOAR."
THE TOWNLINE unsold rapidly from its enormous reel.
BEN AND ERIC climb higher and higher.
ENRIQUE keeps an eye on the clients. When they reach a certain
height, he LOCKS OFF the reel.
High overhead, Ben and Eric are floating in wonderful, quiet
splendor. The motor of the boat now sounds strangely distant.
Down below, the boat enters a think blanket of FOG.
Eric points excitedly at the islands as Ben films him with the

which now dangles from his neck.
What was that?
A second tug...and now the faintest of screams.

By the time the boat emerges on the far side of the mist...THEIR
IS NO SIGN OF ENRIQUE. The deck is splattered with blood.
As Ben considers the driverless boat...
Ben glances over at Eric, staring in horror at something
below. Following his gaze, Ben finds that their boat is only
moments away from crashing into A LARGE REEF.
Sticking out of the water, the imposing reef is being battered
AS THE BOAT SMASHES INTO THE REEF, it splinters into a
number of pieces.
A panicked Ben turns to Eric.
Unclip your line!
Eric and Ben frantically unclip their lines. Catching an
updraft, the parasailers float upward.
A strong wind sends them wafting over the daunting cliffs
of ISLA SORNA...
4 EXT. SUBURBAN BACKYARD - DAY 4
TWO PLASTIC DINOSAURS enter the frame and do battle accompanied
by a child's ferocious sounds.
WINDER TO REVEAL -
CHARLIE, a three-year old boy, plays in a sandbox with his
favorite toy dinosaurs. ALAN GRANT squats next to him and
watches with great delight.
ELLIE SATLER stands over them, an INFANT in her arms -- a
picture of the perfect family.
Oh, actually, Charlie, those two are
herbivores. They wouldn't be interested in
fighting each other. But these...
(picking up two other dinosaurs)
See, these are carnivores. And this one here

claws to gouge at the throat of its opponent…
