10 Movies That Would Be 10x Better If They Added Dinosaurs, According To Reddit

Dinosaurs seemingly make anything better, as the prehistoric creatures could be added to any box office bomb and it’d become an instant hit. And for the most part, Redditors have seriously considered what movies would genuinely be made better if dinosaurs were added.

While some Redditors were throwing dinosaurs into classics like Casablanca simply so the iconic quote could be rephrased to “a dinosaur’s looking at you, kid,” it doesn’t go further than being for laughs. However, there are some movies that Redditors mention that somehow make sense, and their elevator pitches are jaw-dropping and better than most of the final results of the movies.

Tomb Raider (2018)

Redditor Antibara thinks dinosaurs would make the 2018 video game movie better, and while a lot of Redditors are throwing Dinosaurs into films to make them funnier or more outrageous, Tomb Raider actually makes the most sense. In the very first PlayStation Tomb Raider game, a T-Rex can be found in a valley behind the first tomb.

The reveal is one of the most classic moments in video game history, and it would have been amazing to see it come to life on the big screen. However, given how 2018’s Tomb Raider was a more grounded reboot of the iconic video game character, it’d be more fitting to see the T-Rex in the over-the-top Angelina Jolie-starring Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000)

While Dude, Where’s My Car? was a modest box office success when it was first released in 2000, it has unfortunately become a forgotten gem. The film was critically scathed, but between the sci-fi and fantastical elements, the stoner comedy is actually underrated.

But despite all of the unusual events already in the movie, 939388383883 thinks the film still needs dinosaurs. In fairness, it could be a great final act, as the end of the movie interpolates Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, so it could make for a hilarious kaiju-like movie. There are weirder things that happen in the film.

Alien Vs. Predator (2004)

User Zemplis thinks dinosaurs would make the crossover horror movie Alien vs. Predator better. There’s no doubt that dinosaurs would make it even more of an epic movie crossover, and Alien vs. Predator vs. Dinosaurs does have a ring to it. And given how most of the Redditors bring to memory mostly critically acclaimed films, Alien vs. Predator was universally hated and suffered a critical scathing, so the movie could totally be improved by adding dinosaurs.

On top of that, the Redditor makes a great point that “it would make perfect sense for a Predator to hunt a T-Rex. It would make an amazing trophy.” As explained in the movies, Predators don’t hunt humans for food, but because they want to establish their dominance, so hunting dinosaurs would prove that the species is the ultimate apex predator.

The Terminator (1984)

Despite it being an influential sci-fi movie, Phaazing still thinks The Terminator could be better if dinosaurs were added somehow. But while it seems like a stretch, the Redditor actually has a great elevator pitch about how to incorporate dinosaurs into the classic 1984 movie.

In the film, “they made a miscalculation and sent him back 65 million years.” It’d make for an almost compelling sci-fi-horror-comedy, as the T-800 takes on dinosaurs as he wonders where Sarah Connor is. And if anybody thinks it’s too ridiculous, it sounds a lot like the video game Far Cry: Blood Dragon, which is a visual spectacle and an entertaining cult hit. In fact, it’s almost exactly the same as the ’80s classic.

The Truman Show (1998)

Many fans believe The Truman Show needs a sequel, as it ends with Truman, who was unknowingly the subject of a reality show his whole life, exiting into the real world. There are so many character study-like avenues a sequel could go down, such as Truman struggling to cope with what has been hidden from him for 30+ years, but Totallynotabearbro has another idea.

The Redditor thinks it should “play out like the ending of 10 Cloverfield Lane. A brief mention that something is up outside and it is safe in this fake life.” And the Reddit user thinks that when Truman leaves through the sky door, he sees dinosaurs ruling the world, just like they did millions of years ago.

The Fast And The Furious (2001)

Redditor TheMan5991 wants to see dinosaurs added to the increasingly outrageous Fast & Furious franchise. The Redditor rhetorically asks, “Really? Nobody has mentioned a Fast & Furious movie yet? Who doesn’t wanna see La Familia race friggin’ dinosaurs!?”

As there’s an increasing suspension of disbelief that’s required with each consecutive Fast & Furious movie, the appearance of dinosaurs at some point down the line is almost inevitable. Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia in the Fast series, has even expressed that a Jurassic Park/Fast crossover would be fun, so the idea of dinosaurs in the series has certainly crossed producers’ minds. However, Jurassic Park is only one of many franchises Fast & Furious should cross over with.

Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull (2008)

There’s no doubt that Indiana Jones is one of the greatest movie series ever, and until 2008, it was in contention for the greatest movie trilogy of all time. However, a fourth movie arrived and it didn’t come close to the quality of the first three films.

While there are reasons Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is underrated, one of the unforgivable directions it went in was science fiction, as it nonsensically incorporated aliens. It almost seemed like director Steven Spielberg was getting his franchises mixed up. Justbreathe5678 that dinosaurs should be added to the fourquel simply because it “would be better than aliens”

John Wick (2014)
Rent On Vudu

2014’s John Wick is a jaw-dropping movie and a must-watch for fans of fight choreography. The film famously popularized gun-fu in action movies and singlehandedly changed the landscape of action films in the 2010s. But ADGM1868 thinks that the incredible stuntwork and action sequences don’t quite cut it, and instead of expendable henchmen, Wick should be taking on dinosaurs.

Throughout the trilogy, Wick has creatively murdered fellow assassins with books, horses, and he even killed three men with one pencil. But he’d have to get a little more creative when he’s face to face with a group of velociraptors. And while it wouldn’t make any sense, it’d still be a lot of fun.

Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Stream On Disney+

As if there wasn’t enough packed into the 2019 epic superhero movie already, Baconboi007 thinks that Avengers: Endgame would be better if dinosaurs were added. The Redditor sets the scene, “just imagine the final battle and a T-Rex chomping up Thanos’ army.”

The final battle between the Avengers and Thanos’ army saw more than 20 superheroes on screen, not to mention that Ant-Man alone is the size of the T-Rex, albeit not quite as terrifying. So there isn’t much need for any more characters, even if they are prehistoric. And fans can watch Jurassic World if they want to see Christ Pratt face off against velociraptors.

Cast Away (2000)

User Nanojack wants to see the emotionally exhausting survival drama add dinosaurs, positing, “what if… in his fragile state, he thought he saw a volleyball with a bloody handprint, but it was actually a diplodocus all along?” The Redditor is referring to the inanimate volleyball that Chuck Noland befriends and names Wilson.

2000’s Cast Away is a riveting survival movie, but Chuck Noland doesn’t necessarily have to defend himself against any kind of prey. The movie could work better if the plane crash survivor found himself on Isla Nublar instead of the uninhabited island, where Jurassic Park’s monsters fled to. That would make for a real survival flick.

Fast & Furious 11 Release Delay & Filming Start Date Confirmed By Director


Fast and Furious 11
is facing a release date delay to Summer 2026 due to strikes, with director Louis Leterrier confirming the sequel will not be hitting its April 4, 2025 date.
Leterrier also confirms that filming starts in Fall 2025 after finishing a horror movie in September.
The final installment in the
Fast Saga
reunites Vin Diesel’s Dominic Toretto for one last ride, while also leaving the door open for other spinoffs.

After facing multiple delays due to the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and Writers Guild of America strikes, Fast and Furious 11 is seeing its release date delayed. The next installment in the Vin Diesel-fronted franchise is expected to be the last mainline sequel, while development continues on the Dwayne Johnson-led spinoff Hobbs & Reyes, a mysterious standalone movie penned by Fast X’s Zach Dean and a potential female-led spinoff. While a filming start date was never confirmed, Universal had previously set the movie for an April 2025 release date.

During a recent interview with Collider at a CCXP MX panel, Louis Leterrier was asked for an update on Fast and Furious 11. The director went on to confirm that the final mainline installment in the action franchise will no longer be making its April 4, 2025 release date, instead now aiming for a Summer 2026 release window with the filming start date being set for this fall. Check out what Leterrier said below:

It’s happening. It’s happening very, very soon. I’m able to shoot a little horror movie this summer. I’m finishing my horror movie on September 15th, and I start Fast on September 16th.

Will Fast 11’s Multiple Delays Help Or Hurt The Sequel?

Much like the tenth film before it, Fast and Furious 11 has faced a few behind-the-scenes hardships in its road to getting off the ground, namely the delays stemming from the 2023 strikes. While the latest movie seems to have retained its core creative team in comparison to the shift in directors from franchise vet Justin Lin to Leterrier on Fast X after reported creative differences between the former and Diesel, this change didn’t seem to help much with the continued downward trend recent sequels have seen from critics. Check out how the franchise’s Rotten Tomatoes scores compare below:

Title RT Critical Score RT Audience Score The Fast and the Furious 54% 74% 2 Fast 2 Furious 37% 50% The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift 37% 69% Fast & Furious 28% 67% Fast Five 78% 83% Fast & Furious 6 71% 84% Furious 7 81% 82% The Fate of the Furious 67% 72% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw 67% 88% F9: The Fast Saga 59% 82% Fast X 56% 84%

Even looking outside the Fast and Furious franchise, many movie sequels have found themselves hurt by various delays, be they from creative changes, general release shifts or other factors. The action genre in particular is one in which lengthier development periods can lead to diminishing returns, be it A Good Day to Die Hard, Rambo: Last Blood or Diesel’s own xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. While Fast and Furious 11 may only be getting pushed back by a year, the delay is nonetheless a concern that the final installment could find itself in trouble.

On the other hand, the longer wait for Fast and Furious 11 to close out the mainline series of movies could actually prove beneficial for the sequel. Though Leterrier may be busy with another project in the lead-up to filming the next installment, writers Oren Uziel and Christina Hodson should now have more than enough time to really look back at the script and ensure it learns from the critical missteps of recent installments to deliver a satisfying conclusion to the Dominic Toretto saga.

Vin Diesel Already Has His Perfect Fast & Furious Replacement Franchise With 51-Year-Old Remake


Vin Diesel’s dominance in Fast & Furious is ending, but Kojak could kick off a new action franchise for him.
Kojak’s reboot faces an uncertain future, but its similarity to Fast & Furious makes it a worthy project for Diesel.
Diesel’s potential shift from criminal racer to cop signifies a fresh start in a possible Fast & Furious-like series.

Vin Diesel’s days of playing Dominic Toretto are numbered, but the actor has already found his perfect Fast & Furious replacement. Diesel found a major breakout role in the early 2000s thanks to participating in The Fast and the Furious. The original 2001 street racing crime movie became the springboard for a sprawling franchise that has lasted for over two decades. The success of the Fast & Furious movies transformed Vin Diesel’s career, turning him into an even bigger star, especially in the action movie genre. But, Fast & Furious 11 is planned as the final chapter for him and the franchise.

The Fast & Furious franchise’s end will put Vin Diesel in an unfamiliar position of not having a major franchise to lean back on. This presents the actor with various options, such as changing the course of his career to pursue non-franchise roles. However, the more likely outcome is that Diesel will attempt to find a new IP that can replace Fast & Furious. He has had trouble in that regard recently, with franchises like xXx or Riddick running cold and Bloodshot and The Last Witch Hunter failing to launch franchises. There is another option for Diesel, though.

Kojak Can Be Vin Diesel’s New Action Crime Franchise After Fast & Furious
Diesel Has Been Developing The Reboot Since 2015

The impending conclusion of the Fast & Furious franchise means it is finally time for Vin Diesel’s Kojak reboot to get off the ground. The project was announced back in 2015 with Diesel re-teaming with Universal Pictures, the studio behind Fast & Furious, to develop a movie based on Kojak. The original TV series starred Telly Savalas as Theo Kokaj and ran for three seasons after debuting in 1973. The series revolves around Kojak, a New York detective known for being willing to go beyond the law and a love for cars and lollipops, and follows him as he investigates different cases.

Kojak was rebooted in 2005 as a TV show starring Ving Rhames, but it only ran for six episodes

Development on Vin Diesel’s Kojak movie has not been very active in the nine years since it was announced. However, it still maintains the base similarities to Fast & Furious, which makes the project a worthwhile endeavor for Diesel in terms of finding a new action franchise. He would now have another big action series about cars and crime, essentially making Kojak into a newer version of Fast & Furious. The irony here is that Diesel takes on the role of a cop after playing criminal racer Dominic Toretto.

Vin Diesel’s Involvement Can Morph Kojak Into A Major Action Franchise
Kojak Could Be A Fast & Furious Clone

Looking at the original TV show, Kojak might not necessarily project to be a major blockbuster action franchise akin to Fast & Furious. The TV series was relatively grounded and small due to the nature of its production. However, the fact that Diesel and Universal pinpointed this property as something they wanted to revive together is telling. The announcement of Kojak’s reboot came months after Furious 7 debuted in theaters and took the franchise to new heights at the box office and in terms of how ridiculously big the action and story could get.

It’s sometimes difficult to remember that Fast & Furious started off with a story about DVD thieves who were also street racers before Diesel helped turn it into something much bigger. With that experience and success already behind him, it would be understandable if a similar path was envisioned for Kojak. The series could then morph into a Fast & Furious clone, one that gives Vin Diesel a new franchise to headline and Universal a “fresh” action franchise to grow.

The Rock’s WWE Run Means Fast & Furious 11 Must Make 1 Major Hobbs Change


Hobbs from Fast & Furious 11 needs a gritty edge like The Rock’s WWE character to keep the franchise fresh and exciting.
The Rock’s time away from the Fast & Furious universe provides the perfect reason for Hobbs to return with a personal vendetta and a more savage attitude.
While Hobbs shouldn’t become a full-fledged villain in Fast & Furious 11, adding some edginess and dirty tricks could make his character more intriguing and dynamic.

Fast & Furious 11 must make one major Hobbs change after The Rock’s incredible WWE run. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s WWE return surpassed his recent movies, with the actor creating some of the best work of his career. Having returned to a thunderous reception, The Rock was able to flip the crowd’s reception by becoming a heel and playing a major part in WrestleMania’s main events. The Rock hasn’t played a villain on screen for years, as even his depiction of Black Adam lent more into the character’s anti-hero side, which made his wrestling run all the more refreshing.

While his wrestling character may not perfectly translate into the Fast & Furious universe, there is one aspect of The Rock’s WWE run that the franchise should attempt to implement. After debuting in Fast Five, The Rock’s best Fast & Furious scenes helped contribute to the movie series becoming so popular, with Luke Hobbs becoming an instrumental part of the story. He was even given his own spinoff alongside Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) and is set to get a solo movie in the future. Despite this, Hobbs would still benefit from adding one key aspect of The Rock’s WWE run.

Given how electrifying The Rock’s recent WWE run was, there is no doubt Fast & Furious 11 needs to give Hobbs more of an edge. Although the character has had his more serious moments, like most of the Fast & Furious cast, Hobbs tends to mix action with comedy. Hobbs and Shaw are supposed to be two of the more stoic heroes, yet they are constantly at each other’s throats and cracking jokes to help maintain the franchise’s lighthearted core. However, giving Hobbs a grittier side would help the character thrive upon his return.

The Rock’s Fast & Furious return may redeem Fast X’s box office, but the character needs to come back stronger than ever. By allowing him to be more ruthless, he can still maintain some elements of comedy but also become more interesting in the process. Johnson proved that despite being a detestable heel, he was still as hilarious as ever during his recent WWE tenure. This proves that he can maintain Fast & Furious’ tone and humorous style while being more layered; therefore, Hobbs adopting some of The Rock’s WWE characteristics could make him even more entertaining.

Fast & Furious Already Has A Reason For Hobbs To Be More Savage
Hobbs Has Been Away From The Franchise For Several Years

Making a major change to Hobbs’ character could be tough to explain, but Fast & Furious 11 already has a great reason to make him more savage. His four-year absence from the franchise gives him a perfect excuse to come back with a vengeance and potentially have a personal attachment to Fast & Furious 11’s villains. Hobbs’ time away from the main story could be explained through a connection to Fast X’s secondary villain, Aimes. Aimes’ villain twist in Fast X was well executed and suggests he’ll be around for the sequel, which is the perfect reason to bring back Hobbs.

Having a more personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, but it would also give him more of an edge.

Fast X never explained why he’s back, but having a personal vendetta against Aimes could be an intriguing reason. Given Dom and Dante are the focal point of the franchise’s conclusion, Hobbs returning to take down Aimes would avoid overshadowing the main story while still giving him an interesting role. Having a personal story with one of the villains could allow Hobbs to continue his great quips and one-liners, while also giving him more of an edge. This provides The Rock with the perfect reason to implement some of his heel traits while still portraying a morally good hero.

2:34 Image 147 Related Predicting The Ending Of All 13 Fast & Furious Characters In Fast 11 The Fast Saga is set to conclude with Fast & Furious 11 – or Fast X 2 – but how will Dom Toretto and his family’s stories come to a definitive end?

Why Fast & Furious Can’t Bring The Rock Back As A Villain
Hobbs Already Appeared As An Antagonist In Fast Five
A custom image featuring Dwayne Johnson as Luke Hobbs in the Fast and Furious movies Custom image by Debanjana Chowdhury

Although The Rock’s villainous tendencies worked well in the WWE, Fast & Furious can’t bring him back as an antagonist. Johnson already played the main villain of Fast Five, as Hobbs was originally an enemy of Dom and his crew before becoming an ally. Hobbs’ role in Fast Five was one of his best, but despite being the main antagonist, he always had a level of integrity. Dropping all of this to make him a villain in the final movie would be completely unnecessary, especially as the franchise needs him to remain a hero for his spinoff.

Fast & Furious 11 may end the main story, but The Rock will be part of the franchise beyond this, and altering his character so drastically wouldn’t make any sense. Instead, adding some extra edge to his character would have the same effect and would avoid stealing the thunder from Dante and Aimes. Although Fast & Furious 11 shouldn’t make him a villain, the film can still allow Hobbs to play dirty and pull some cheap tricks in order to show a grittier side, while letting him taunt his enemies when he inevitably helps save the day.
