Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
When Mount Sibo on Isla Nublar starts to erupt threatening the dinosaurs. Benjamin plans a rescue mission to save the dinosaurs and bring them to an island sanctuary. He later asks Claire Dearing through Mills to help with the operation ensuring the dinosaurs safety. He later connects with his granddaughter and when she asks what her mother was like and if she looks like her. He says she looks and is like her. He also says she went to the park once.
However unknown to Benjamin, Mills uses this operation to auction the dinosaurs and get a bone from the now deceased Indominus rex in order for Dr. Henry Wu to create the Indoraptor, and Mills only needed Claire to get Blue the Velociraptor to finish the experiment. Then leaves Claire and her group to die. Maisie finds out about the auction when she overhears Mills talking to auctioneer Gunnar Eversol. She attempts to warn her grandfather about the auction. But he dismisses it as a misunderstanding that he would clear up in the morning, and told her to go to bed.
The next night, when he finds out about the auction, he realizes Maisie was right and confronts Mills for going behind his back and preparing to sell the dinosaurs. He orders him to call the police and report his actions to shut down the auction. But Mills instead tells him that John Hammond was right about his cloning of his daughter being an unholy act and he is a hypocrite. Mills then suffocates Benjamin to death by smothering him with a pillow. Mills covers his action saying Benjamin Lockwood died in his sleep.
