The chemical used to make gasoline repellant to humans would work for that. That’s not the dumb part.

The dumb part is that the animal is clearly killing for pleasure and is intelligent enough to have object permanence. It wouldn’t need to find him, it should know where he went.

Wow. This trailer does absolutely nothing for me. Even Jeff Goldblum's presence couldn't redeem it.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Fair point I thought maybe that was just Hollywood making up a magic bullet similar to what they did with the the classic Predator movie where Arnold's character coated himself in mud though in the context of the film this works because the story carries it and the character is likeable and well established and your rooting for him to win by the end, where as Prats character in my view puts you off as soon as he shows up on screen.

So by the time it got to that car scene I wanted him gone since the franchise in the past has shown that posturing has no place and comes with a huge price tag where the dinosaurs are concerned as it was shown with the hunter in Jurassic park 2 who desperation to hunt a male Rex as a trophy got all of his close friends killed and had to come to realization that they died because of him and that his trophy's cost was far to high.
Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.
