Movie Jurasic Park (1993) made dinosaurs famous. Everyone who have seen the movie, remember fierce Velociraptors that roamed in ruins of the park. Movie Velociraptors were 4 times larger than real would have been.

If this movie would be in production now, Velociraptors would not become stars of this film. They would not be scary enough. Now we know that they did not at all look like movies Velociraptors. Real Velociraptors had feathers, wings and primaries on their legs too. They had long feathered tail too. They were likely flightles even if their ancestors could fly.
