Carnotaurus and Utahraptor?
Don't get me wrong, love 'em!  But with so many great dinosaurs to choose
from, I wish filmmakers could dig a little deeper and use some different
theropods that never get a chance on the big screen. And at least do some
research into the paleo-fauna for the right geological regions they are
trying to portray.
Well, it's just an early script! We can always hope!
Should be fun anyway.
