Joel Schumacherís original cut of Batman Forever was over 160 minutes long, but Warner Bros. forced him to cut it down to 122 minutes as that meant more theater showings and also because the original cut wasnít as family-friendly as they wanted.

In regards to the graphic and over-the-top death scene of Katie McGrath's character Zara in Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow had this to say: "It was the first time a woman was going to die in a Jurassic Park movie. We're an equal opportunities bunch of murderers! So we felt, 'All right, let's make it the most spectacular death we can possibly imagine. Let's involve multiple animals from sea and air.' The earned death in these movies has become a bit standard and another thing I wanted to subvert. 'How can we surprise people? Let's have someone die who just doesn't deserve to die at all.'"

An unfilmed scene in Jurassic World would have involved the Indominus rex being startled by an animatronic T. rex at the park and subsequently tearing its head off. Executive producer Steven Spielberg objected to the scene because he believed it would be disrespectful to the late Stan Winston for suggesting that CGI dinosaurs are better than animatronics.
