Never mind that "Incredibles 2" warning about flashing lights. "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" needed its own signs posted in theaters:

Warning: Bring your own box of tissues 'cause you will be crying your eyes out for a CGI dinosaur.

You don't go into a "Jurassic World" sequel expecting "Steel Magnolias" emotion, so that Brachiosaurus scene blindsided many of the fans watching over opening weekend.

Director J.A. Bayona explained to The Hollywood Reporter that the scene "represents the ending of a dream that started 25 years ago" with 1993's "Jurassic Park." The first dinosaur we saw in that movie was a Brachiosaurus. And she was the last one we saw on Isla Nublar, helpless and abandoned as the island is destroyed by a volcano.

Bayona explained to THR how he staged that devastating callback scene, considering there was no real dino for the stars to watch:

"I played a very sweet and a little sad version of the ;Jurassic Park; melody. So that was very effective for the actors, especially for Bryce [Dallas Howard]. Being there, telling that story, listening to music from John Williams, they were all very emotional."

The scene totally effed up a lot of fans, who vented on social media:

In a way, it's good to see so many fans care this much. It shows you guys have big hearts and working empathy -- you feel for a living creature in distress, even if you know logically that the suffering creature is just a CGI image.

Good for you.

But bad for the "Jurassic" team to break our hearts like that. Don't do that again when the third movie comes out in 2021! (They probably will.)
