Bryce Dallas Howard Eaten by Mechanical Dinosaur on 'Jurassic World' Set

A power outage caused one of the giant mechanical dinosaurs to shut down in the middle of a scene, trapping the actress for 15 minutes.
Warning! The following story does contain a crucial Plot Spoiler! While on location in Hawaii shooting Jurassic World, Bryce Dallas Howard got quite the scare when she became trapped inside the large jaws of a mechanical dinosaur.

The actress was in the middle of shooting one of the key action scenes, which sees her being attacked by an unrevealed Dinosaur that is quite large. The power went out right when the massive metal mouth of this mechanical on-set prop came down on top of her, locking her inside, where she was surrounded wires and machinery used to operate the giant puppet.

Sources report that she started screaming to be set free. The crew worked hard to pry the jaws back open without damaging the very expensive prop. It took more than 15 minutes for Bryce Dallas Howard to escape this Jurassic nightmare.

There were no reported injuries. After thanking the crew profusely for saving her, Bryce Dallas Howard went right back to filming this crucial moment in the sequel, just as soon as the electricity was restored to the island location.

Jurassic World comes to theaters June 12th, 2015 and stars Ty Simpkins, Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, Chris Pratt, Vincent D'Onofrio, Irrfan Khan, B.D. Wong, Omar Sy. The film is directed by Colin Trevorrow.

    that could play out 2 ways.
    1.. it happened on-set (not being part of the movie)
    or 2... they are messing with our head and sumhow, this does happen as you and i know, this does sound like something you'd seee in a movie.. the lights go out and sumthing eats or kills you, then somebody saves you right b4 you die. So its a spoiler w/out giving it away. they make it into a story onset.

    How ironic, Since Dinosaurs would eat people if they already existed in the time of the dinosaurs which they didn't.
