Didja Notice? 


At 1:37 on the Blu-ray, the dinosaur seen drinking from the lake appears to be an Ankylosaurus.


The dinosaur herd seen at 2:13 on the Blu-ray may be Zuniceratops.


The large theropod the smaller theropod is picking meat scraps from the teeth of is Giganotosaurus.


The Tyrannosaurus rex that is killed by the Giganotosaurus may be intended to be the one that later is cloned by InGen (Rexy) from the blood extracted by the ancient mosquito frozen in amber and which appears in Jurassic Park and also in Jurassic World.


In reality, Tyrannosaurus rex could not have fought Giganotosaurus in Cretaceous times because the two species existed tens of millions of years apart and on different continents.


All of the above mentioned dinosaurs appearing in the prologue of the film existed during the Late Cretaceous period. 


The snipe playing on the drive-in movie screen at 4:15 on the Blu-ray, is a real world advertisement commonly known as Let's All Go to the Lobby (officially, Technicolor Refreshment Trailer No. 1), made for theaters in 1957 by Filmack Studios and directed by famed animation producer/director Dave Fleischer.


The car with Oregon license plate WM652F that is tipped over by the T. rex at 4:45 on the Blu-ray is a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. 


The helicopter that flies over the drive-in to intercept the wayward T. rex is manned by personnel from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The USFWS emblem on the side of the copter and on the personnel uniforms is a modified version of the real world emblem.
USFWS emblem in film Actual USFWS emblem


    As far as I can tell, the particular Skyline Drive-in Theater seen here is fictitious, though there are a number of drive-ins by that name throughout the U.S.

   The drive-in marquee advertises American Graffiti and Flash Gordon as the films currently being shown as a "classic double feature". American Graffiti is a 1973 dramatic comedy directed by George Lucas. Flash Gordon probably refers to the 1980 science-fiction camp film by that name based on the famous comic strip character.


At 5:32 on the Blu-ray, a little girl is chased around a corral by compys (Compsognathus).


The file footage of the original Jurassic Park compound at 5:49 on the Blu-ray is labeled as provided by Fuerza Publica de Costa Rica. This is the Public Force of Costa Rica, the national law enforcement agency of that nation.


News footage of Lockwood Mansion from MSNBC is seen during the Now This report.


Reporter Gemma Zhao is seen reporting on dinosaurs from Big Rock National Park. This is the same (fictitious) park seen in Battle at Big Rock.


The dinosaurs seen through the car windshield at 6:12 on the Blu-ray appear to be Gallimimus.


The Now This report informs us that sole collection rights to the wild dinosaurs has been awarded by the U.S. Congress to Biosyn Genetics. Biosyn's CEO is now Lewis Dodgson, who was seen in a lesser role for Biosyn in Jurassic Park and has steadily risen in importance (and villainy) in stories since then.


The Now This report states that Biosyn has created a dinosaur sanctuary in Italy's Dolomite Mountains to study the animals' ancient immune systems. The Dolomites are an actual part of the Italian Alps range.


The ornithischian dinosaur seen alongside the railroad tracks at 7:28 on the Blu-ray appears to be a Pachycephalosaurus or similar member of the pachycephalosaurid clade.


At 7:44 on the Blu-ray, a Mosasaurus is seen grabbing a crab pot off the crane of a fishing vessel. The vessel is the Saga, one of the boats featured in numerous episodes of the Discovery Channel reality series about crab fishing in the Bering Sea, Deadliest Catch.


The characters of Franklin Webb and Zia Rodriguez previously appeared in Fallen Kingdom.


Claire and Zia break into the compound of the Saw Ridge Cattle Company in Nevada. This is a fictitious business.


The baby ceratopsians Claire and Zia free are Nasutoceratops.


During the break-in, Claire remarks that the DFW takes days to investigate reports of illegal use of prehistoric animals. Presumably, she is using a common shorthand name for the aforementioned U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (DFW=Department of Fish and Wildlife).


The van with CA license plate 2PCE367 in which Franklin picks up Claire, Zia, and the baby Nasutoceratops is a 1995 Ford Econoline.


The Saw Ridge guard fires a Ruger Mini-14 rifle at the van as it flees at 10:01 on the Blu-ray.


The ceratopsian herd the van flees through is made up of Triceratops, Nasutoceratops, and Sinoceratops.


The Saw Ridge truck that pursues the van and is rolled by a Triceratops appears to be a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado. The other truck with license plate PLO219 appears to be an older Chevy truck.


The dinosaur herd being chased through the Sierra Nevada mountain range by Owen on horseback are Parasaurolophus. The Sierra Nevada is a real mountain range existing in California and part of Nevada.


Rainn Delacourt, the lead Biosyn dino wrangler Owen and his crew run into in the Sierra Nevadas, appears to have a tattoo of the Ancient Egyptian hieroglyph of the Eye of Horus on his right cheek.


Rainn and his men are armed with shotguns of an unknown make/model. Possibly, they are custom movie props. Owen's friends, Shep and Rosa, are armed with Glock 17 pistols. 


Maisie has a Chinese yin-yang symbol patch on her jacket's left sleeve, which refers to the philosophy of the interconnectedness of opposites. There are also a number of other patches on her jacket, but we do not get a good look at them.


At 16:46 on the Blu-ray, Maisie is seen wearing Skullcandy headphones.


Eagle Claw fish hooks are seen for sale at the tackle and hunting goods store Maisie visits in the small mountain town.


In addition to tackle, Maisie purchases a Hershey bar.


The sauropod dinosaur that wanders into the logging operation is an Apatosaurus.


The man who lures the Apatosaurus away with a flare is riding on the back of a Komatsu HM300 MEGA water tank truck.


At 19:59 on the Blu-ray, a sign from the Sunrio Tequila Bar (seen on Main Street of the Jurassic World park in Jurassic World) is leaning against the wall in Owen, Claire, and Maisie's mountain cabin.


Owen returns to the cabin in a 1986 Jeep Grand Wagoneer with CA license plate 3PC1438. This same plate was also seen on a military Unimog truck in Fallen Kingdom.


The old school bus Blue and her brood live in is an International 3800 Carpenter Coach.


Inside the bus, Blue's baby, Beta, rolls an old Chock Full O' Nuts coffee can.


The hunter's son has an unidentified type of bolt-action rifle. The hunter himself carries a DRD Tactical Paratus SBR-12.


Owen's motorcycle with CA license plate 9Z9982 is a 2015 Triumph Scrambler.


Owen wears a Casio G-Shock watch.


At 25:00 on the Blu-ray, a photo of Charlotte Lockwood shows her wearing an NYU sweatshirt and leaning on the hood of a Volkswagen Beetle. NYU is New York University.


Rainn's truck with Texas license plate 38AEQ7 at 25:14 on the Blu-ray is a 1985 Ford F-Series Regular Cab XLT Lariat. It has BFGoodrich tires.


Ellie drives a 1994 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer when she comes to visit the farm that suffered the swarm of giant locusts.


At the farm, Ellie climbs onto a John Deere 3030 tractor to get a view above the crops.


As Ellie looks out at the ravaged corn fields, she pauses in shock and removes her sunglasses in a manner similar to what Alan Grant did when he first saw a living dinosaur in Jurassic Park.


At 28:08 on the Blu-ray, notice that two dinosaur toys are visible sitting in a small wagon inside the farm house.


Ellie uses a field sequencer made by CTBC Labs to analyze a tissue sample from the giant locust. A field sequencer is an electronic device used to analyze DNA samples. CTBC is a fictitious company.


The image of a T. rex the girl shows Dr. Grant on her cell phone appears to be a shot from the attack on the Skyline Drive-In seen earlier in the film. 


    At 30:06 on the Blu-ray, a small model dinosaur skeleton is seen in Grant's work tent behind the snooping Ellie. It looks similar to a raptor, except the large sickle claws are missing. In the lower left corner, is what appears to be a model of the resonating chamber of a raptor skull, seen in Jurassic Park III.

    Seconds later, what appears to be a Spinosaurus skeleton model is seen on a shelf. Grant encountered the beast in Jurassic Park III.

Raptor model (?) Raptor resonance chamber Spinosaurus model


At 30:38 on the Blu-ray, a Clarke toolbox and a box of Zatarain's product of some kind are seen in Grant's work tent.


At 31:34 on the Blu-ray, two books, The Trilobite Book and Principles of Geology are seen in Grant's tent. These are both real world books.


Ellie reveals that her marriage to Mark Degler (seen in Jurassic Park III) is over.


At 32:02 on the Blu-ray, what appears to be a large piece of amber with an insect in it is seen Grant's tent.


Dr. Malcolm latest book is How the World Will End.


The Biosyn airplane seen at the USFWS relocation facility at 34:41 on the Blu-ray is an Ilyushin Il-76TD-90VD. The truck that unloads a shipping container into the plane is a Volvo N 10. The beast in the modified shipping container turns out be Rexy.


The mini bulldozer seen at 34:51 on the Blu-ray is a JCB 520.


The airplane Ellie and Grant board is a British Aerospace BAe 146-300.


The red sneakers worn by Maisie are Converse brand.


At 37:41 on the Blu-ray, a can of Folgers coffee is seen on the kitchen counter in Owen's cabin. Also, cans of Campbell's soup are seen on a shelf.


At 38:47 on the Blu-ray, Rainn fires a Mossberg 500 Mariner Cruiser shotgun at Owen.


Maisie's abductors arrive at the bridge in a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu.


The rifle Owen pulls out of a cabinet in his cabin is the same one he used in Jurassic World, a Marlin Model 1895SBL.


Franklin is seen to work for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Dangerous Species Division. I believe "Dangerous Species Division" is a fictitious department in the agency.


At 40:31 on the Blu-ray, Franklin watches part of a CIA video of a woman on a beach being attacked by Dimorphodons.


Franklin tells Claire and Owen that the CIA has a man on the inside of Rainn Delacourt's operation and there is reported to be an exchange of "cash for cargo" in Malta. Malta is a small island nation in the Mediterranean Sea.


At 42:40 on the Blu-ray, notice that Ellie looks as if she is wearing an amber ring.


The Biosyn helicopters seen at the Dolomite compound are fictitious models, built on a Eurocopter EC135 chassis.


Cole mentions that the first generation of dinosaurs brought to the Dolomite sanctuary came from Isla Sorna. Isla Sorna was the Site B island introduced in The Lost World. Are their still dinosaurs on that island at the current time?


Cole remarks that it took USFWS three years to catch the T. Rex (Rexy) on Isla Nublar.


The Biosyn sanctuary has an aerial deterrent system (ADS) that keeps the pterosaurs below 500 feet, keeping them within the sanctuary and protecting planes from them and vice versa.


    When Grant and Ellie are concerned about electrical shocks upon learning that the sanctuary dinosaurs have electronic implants that can receive signals to herd them when necessary, Cole asks them if they know how much voltage was in the fences at Jurassic Park. Grant's answer of "Yeah," is a reminder that he (and especially Tim Murphy) had an encounter with the fences there in Jurassic Park.

    In the final act of the film, the remote herding command is used to bring the dinosaurs into the compound when the forest fire starts. 


Malcolm is wearing a Rolex Milgauss watch and Jacques Marie Mage eyeglasses.


Malcolm has learned that there is a project at Biosyn called Hexapod Allies. "Hexapod" is Greek for "six legs", referring here to insects. As the plot moves forward, we learn that Biosyn is releasing the locusts (and soon others) to devastate normal crops, leaving only Biosyn-engineered crops immune.


At 54:48 on the Blu-ray, the lead car with license CCN653 is a BMW X5. The van following it is a 2014 Peugeot Boxer.


The sunglasses worn by Soyona Santos are Oliver Peoples 1244S sunglasses.


Kayla's silver plane that Beta is loaded onto is a Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar.


Lowery Cruthers and Barry Sembène previously appeared in Jurassic World.


The dry-docked boat at 57:11 on the Blu-ray is seen to be named Maximus from Valleta. Valleta is the capital city of Malta. Later, we see part of the Victoria Gate, indicating that Valleta is where Owen and Claire have come to the animal market.


In the animal fighting pit at 57:39, young Baryonix and Allosaurus circle each other.


The muzzled theropod at 57:46 appears to be a young Carnotaurus. Seconds later, a Pachycephalosaurus is seen held in a cage with straps. A crateful of baby Microceratus is seen after that, then a man is seen with a Dimorphodon perched on his gloved hand like a hunting falcon. Kayla Watts has a young Lystrosaurus in a cage next to her.


In the pit, the Lystrosaurus kills an Oviraptor.


At 1:01:00 on the Blu-ray, a French Intelligence agent holds an M24 Sniper Rifle.


At 1:01:01 on the Blu-ray, another agent is armed with a Nikon camera.


Soyona hires Rainn to fly two pairs of Atrociraptors into Riyadh. The truck carrying the raptors is a Volvo N 10. Atrociraptor is known to science from a single fossil specimen found in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in Alberta, Canada. The animals depicted in the film are quite large, bigger even than the JP Velociraptor. The real world specimen suggests a creature about two-thirds this size.


At 1:02:05 on the Blu-ray, a canvas bag of cash is dropped on top of a crushed Stella Artois can.


Soyona's bodyguards are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5KA1 submachine guns, though one has a Beretta 92FS pistol.


The intelligence agents in the sting are armed with various weapons, including Glock 17 and Kimber Custom TLE II pistols.


Rainn carries a Chiappa Rhino 50DS pistol.


At 1:03:14 on the Blu-ray, Rainn unintentionally frees a Carnotaurus and an Allosaurus from their cages.


When Owen and Rainn fall into the pit and begin fighting, notice that the men around the ring start cheering them on, just as if it were one of their dino fights.


According to the script, the four trained, killing machine Atrociraptors are named Ghost, Panthera, Red, and Tiger.


The apartment building Soyona enters at 1:06:21 on the Blu-ray appears to be called Gozitana. The word "Gozitan" refers to the island of Gozo, part of the Maltese archipelago.


At 1:08:37 on the Blu-ray, Claire falls onto the tented bed of a 1985 Honda Acty small truck with license plate LDH051. The driver's door identifies it as the property of Tramutola Construction. This may be a real world company in the village of Tramutola, Italy.


At 1:09:35 on the Blu-ray, a Canon service store is seen.


At 1:09:51 on the Blu-ray, a boat named Talos is seen behind Owen as he mounts a 2018 Montesa 4Ride motorcycle with license plate 1CF371.


The small truck Owen almost smacks into at 1:10:09 on the Blu-ray is a 2004 Isuzu Elf. A newer model Isuzu Elf is seen at 1:10:39.


At 1:10:47 on the Blu-ray, the Grand Harbour Hotel is seen in Valleta. Seconds later, Cafe Ana, Lobardis Cafe and Bar, and Edmund Lounge are seen; they look like real world locations, but I've been unable to confirm it. Seconds after this, Owen passes the Cafe Ana again!


The car that hits the Atrociraptor at 1:11:05 on the Blu-ray is a 2002 Land-Rover Range Rover.


The two cars against which Claire braces the metal pole to take down one Atrociraptor are a 2004 Fiat Panda and a 2002 Renault Espace.


At 1:11:32 on the Blu-ray, the flags of Malta and Italy are seen flying in a public square.


At 1:12:01 on the Blu-ray, the cockpit of Kayla's Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcar has numerous decals stuck onto blank panels. A few recognizable ones are of the British flag design, a "Swiss Made" decal, "Louisiana", and a cartoony theropod. A "drinking bird" heat engine toy is also present. A photograph of a nicely dressed man and woman is taped to the hub of the pilot's steering wheel; these may be Kayla's parents.


The computers in Dr. Wu's Biosyn lab appear to be Microsoft Surface Studio computers.


Dr. Wu reveals that Blue was engineered with some monitor lizard DNA to fill the gene sequence gaps and those lizards are able to reproduce without a mate. That's how Blue was able to brood Beta, and Beta is essentially an exact duplicate of her mother. In the real world, asexual reproduction is possible among lizard species, including monitor lizards.


In the video of Maisie's mother working in her lab, she is seen using an Apple iMac computer.


Wu also reveals that Maisie's mother, Charlotte, lived at Site B growing up. Site B is Isla Sorna, introduced in The Lost World, where most of Jurassic Park's dinosaurs were created and nurtured.


The woman working in the Biosyn control room, Denise Roberts, is wearing an Apple Watch and Sennheiser headset.


Kayla warns Denise that she (Denise) does not want her to start spilling secrets, saying, "You remember Dubrovnik." Dubrovnik is a city on the coast of the Adriatic Sea in Croatia. It is hinted in the film, and actress DeWanda Wise has confirmed, that the character of Kayla is bisexual. So, it may be that Kayla and Denise had some kind of affair or hook-up in Dubrovnik at some point in the past that Denise would prefer to stay secret.


When Dodgson has Jeffrey turn off the ADS to stop Kayla and her passengers from reaching the Biosyn compound, a Quetzalcoatlus is able to reach the plane and attack it. Quetzalcoatlus was a real world genus of pterosaur from the Cretaceous period, as stated in the film. It is estimated that an adult Quetzalcoatlus northropi was the size of a Cessna light airplane.


The giant bird-like dinosaur that Claire encounters after parachuting into the woods is a Therizinosaurus from the Cretaceous period. It is believed to have been herbivorous, as depicted here.


Kayla tells Owen she learned to fly in the U.S. Air Force, a legacy from her mother. Owen responds that he was in the Navy, which we previously learned in Jurassic World.


The bird-like dinosaur Owen and Kayla face is a Pyroraptor. The one depicted here is much larger than they are said to have been in real life.


Jeffrey tells Dodgson that the security cameras recorded Malcolm putting something (his access key) in Dr. Sattler's pocket. But we saw the moment earlier, and he put it in her hand.


At 1:42:20 on the Blu-ray, the Biosyn worker sitting next to Denise Roberts has origami dinosaur figures on his console. Malcolm uses one as a prop in his speech to the control room workers a minute later.


Dodgson accuses Malcolm of having a preconceived notion of him (Dodgson) as an evil, unbound Prometheus. Malcolm retorts that Prometheus got gored, just as will happen to Dodgson. This is a reference to the Greek mythological figure of Prometheus, one of the Titans, who betrayed his fellow gods and gave fire to humanity, making him a traitor to the Titans. Zeus sentenced Prometheus to the eternal torment of being bound to a rock and having his liver eaten out by an eagle in a daily death-regrowth-death cycle.


The vehicle Malcolm takes from the Biosyn garage is a 2020 Jeep Gladiator.


At 1:48:09 on the Blu-ray, Dodgson has a small metal sculpture of a DNA molecule on his desk. He also has what appears to be a raptor sickle claw and a chunk of amber on the shelf behind his desk.


At 1:48:18 on the Blu-ray, an MSNBC news text pops up on Dodgson's phone with a headline proclaiming that the locust plague has jumped continents. The opened news report states that there have been sightings in Europe and Africa, comparing the scenes to something from the Old Testament. A plague of locusts is one of the ten plagues released upon Egypt by God for their failure to release the Israelite slaves according to the Old Testament.


Dodgson unapologetically tells Ramsay that they are deleting incriminating files about the locust plagues from the Biosyn servers to prevent others from stealing the data just because "we made a bad call." This may be a nod to the 1986 science-fiction film Aliens, in which corporate stooge Carter Burke refers to his decision to send uninformed civilians to investigate the derelict alien ship and egg cache, leading to the near destruction of the human colony on LV-426 as "a bad call".


The pelycosaur that pursues Ellie, Alan, and Maisie in the mines is a Dimetrodon.


At 1:51:48 on the Blu-ray, a bunch of bones are seen on the mine floor, including a human skull picked up by Maisie in defense against the Dimetrodon. Apparently, human deaths have occurred in the mine, either through dinosaur attack or other mishap. Probably not reported as such by Biosyn either!


At 1:51:57 on the Blu-ray, a craps board, or something similar, is seen leaning against the mine wall.


Grant's hairsbreadth attempt to retrieve his hat from under the jaws of the Dimetrodon may be a nod to situations in the Indiana Jones series of films where the eponymous character has been known to risk life and limb to grab back his fallen fedora.


    When Malcolm comes upon Ellie, Alan, and Maisie trapped behind the gate of the mine, he tries to open it by pressing 4-digit number codes into the electronic key lock. He enters 1984 and then Miles Davis' birthday of 0526. I am unaware of any JP connection to these two possibilities. It may be that Malcolm is simply entering numbers that are important to him, simply as Hail Mary passes. Maybe 1984 is one of his favorite books and Davis one of his favorite musicians. Davis (1926-1991) was an American jazz trumpet player and composer, born on 5-26-1926.

    Ramsay sees Malcolm trying to guess the code on the video display and is able to enter the correct code remotely, 9517. Meanwhile, Malcolm was entering another guess of 958. As far as I can find, there is no significance to these numbers.


    After our JP/JW hero group gathers, Grant identifies the theropod that approaches them out of the woods as Giganotosaurus. Grant encountered another Giganotosaurus in "Redemption" Part 5.

    Grant states here that Giganotosaurus is the biggest carnivore the world has ever seen. This is not true, as a number of sea carnivores have been larger, such as Mosasaurus, seen earlier in the news footage. Even if one accepts that Grant is referring only to land-based carnivores, Spinosaurus is considered by experts to be the largest (and Grant even met one in Jurassic Park III!).


The Giganotosaurus is able to break the large glass windows of the watchtower. But wouldn't the watchtower have been constructed with windows that were strong enough to withstand a dinosaur attack in the first place, considering it is inside the Biosyn sanctuary?


The tranquilizer rifles that Kayla and Owen find in the watchtower are custom props made for the movie.


In the watchtower, Kayla has to explain what the ADS is to Ellie even though Ellie already heard about it during their flight to the Biosyn facility.


At 2:06:38 on the Blu-ray, Malcolm unbuttons one of the buttons on his shirt, presumably to look sexy, but Kayla catches him at it and he buttons it back up!


Malcolm holds Owen's tranquilizer rifle in a ready stance as Owen forces open the watchtower door. After Owen gets the door open, he takes the rifle back, saying to him, "All right, easy, Rambo." John Rambo is an ex-soldier character played by Sylvester Stallone in a series of action films.


At 2:07:38 on the Blu-ray, Dodgson spends a moment holding the Barbasol can that got him involved in stealing samples from the InGen cloning lab back in Jurassic Park. The can was last seen in Episode 1: The Intruder of the Jurassic Park: The Game, published by Telltale Games in 2011.


At 2:08:03 on the Blu-ray, Dodgson has what appears to be a dinosaur egg in a glass case in his office.


At 2:10:20 on the Blu-ray, a blackboard contest chart is seen on the wall of the Biosyn control room. It has people's first names and hash marks next to the names and "Week 19" at the top, with the words "in the event of a tie" and "prize" at the bottom. It seems there was some kind of contest going on, but what were they keeping track of? Something to do with the dinosaurs? The names visible on the chart are: Kevin, Luce, Uxue, and Amaia. It looks like four other names are blocked from view by electronics boxes mounted next to the board on the wall.


At 2:19:32 on the Blu-ray, Rexy walks behind the waterfall sculpture, mimicking the classic JP fossil emblem.


The final square-off of Rexy and the Therizinosaurus against the Giganotosaurus is reminiscent of some Godzilla movies in which Godzilla "teams up" with a third kaiju to take down the big bad monster.


The airplane seen at 2:23:17 on the Blu-ray is a Boeing 747-236B.


Ellie remarks that she's going to take the locust blood sample to a lab to be vetted before she takes it to her contact at the Times. She is probably referring to the New York Times newspaper.


Ellie tells Alan that he could come with her and then pauses and adds, bitingly, "...unless you need to get back to your dig." Her dig at him seems suggestive that it was he who was responsible for the end of their relationship sometime after the events of Jurassic Park, due to his obsession with his work, digging for fossils. Alan has no compunctions about going with her this time.


The rescue helicopter that takes Claire, Owen, Maisie, and Kayla away is a Leonardo AW101.


As the movie comes to an end, the Biosyn Valley in the Dolomites has been declared a global sanctuary.


The replacement plane Kayla buys appears to be another old Fairchild Flying Boxcar.
