Unlike the second film, which was a direct sequel to the first, the producers envisioned Final Destination 3 as a stand-alone film. The idea of featuring a roller coaster derailment as the opening-scene disaster came from New Line Cinema executive Richard Bryant. From the beginning, Wong and Morgan saw control as a major theme in the film.

Final Destination 3 received a mixed critical response. Some critics called the film formulaic and said it brought nothing new to the franchise, while others praised it for being enjoyable and fulfilling its audience's expectations.
Two death scenes involving tanning beds and a nail gun, respectively, as well as Winstead's performance attracted positive comments from reviewers.
A fourth film, The Final Destinationwas released in August As they board the Devil's Flight roller coaster, Wendy has a premonition that the hydraulics securing the seat belts and coaster cars will fail during the ride, killing everyone on board. She panics and a fight breaks out, and ten people leave or are forced off the ride including herself, Kevin, best friends Ashley Freund and Ashlyn Halperin, alumnus Frankie Cheeks, athlete Lewis Romero, goth couple - Ian McKinley and Erin Ulmer, and two yet-to-be identified girls.
Moments later the roller coaster derails and kills the remaining passengers, including Jason and Carrie. Several weeks later, Kevin tells Wendy about the explosion of Flight and the subsequent deaths of the survivors, believing they may be in a similar situation. Wendy believes Kevin is mocking her and leaves, but later, Ashley and Ashlyn are burned to death after being trapped in malfunctioning tanning beds.
Now convinced that Death is stalking them, Wendy Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls Kevin decide to save the remaining survivors, using omens hidden in photographs Wendy took on the night of the roller coaster crash. The next day, they try to save Lewis at the gym, but he arrogantly dismisses them shortly before two weights crush his Sole Survivor - Helloween - Speed Symphony. They find Ian and Erin working at a hardware store, and Wendy saves Ian from being impaled by falling wooden stakes, but Erin falls on a nail gun and is shot repeatedly through the head.
After local police interrogate them, Wendy and Kevin leave the police station and decide to ensure their own safety after assuming that the next survivors on Death's list have died; a grief-stricken Ian stalks Wendy as she departs. Wendy learns that her sister Julie and a friend also escaped the roller coaster crash, and she and Kevin rush to the th Anniversary McKinley Tri-Centennial Fair to save them.
Kevin saves Julie from being impaled on a harrow, but an airborne flagpole impales Julie's friend Perry Malinowski moments later. Wendy saves Kevin from an exploding propane canister, and Ian, who has become unhinged and blames Wendy for Erin's death, confronts the trio. The unstable firework cannons fire at Wendy, but she ducks and they explode on a cherry picker that falls and crushes Ian in half, leading Wendy to believe she has cheated Death.
Five months later, Wendy experiences more omens while riding on a subway train with her roommate Laura and her friend Sean. As Wendy is about to disembark, she sees Julie entering the train and decides to stay. She later notices Kevin sitting at the back. As the two of them are talking, Wendy receives another premonition of the train derailing and killing everyone on board, and she, Kevin, and Julie try to stop the train in vain.
The screen then cuts to black followed by the sound of screeching metal. Three critical theories about the Final Destination franchise have been discussed in scholarly works.
It has been framed as a postmodern horror franchise that, like the Scream franchiseself-consciously refers to the history of horror cinema and rewards viewers for their knowledge. Second, the films—particularly The Final Destination and Final Destination 5 —have been examined for their Supărat E Omul Tare - Maria Cîrneci - Maria Cîrneci effects.
Third, the franchise has been criticized for being cynical and reductive. According to media studies scholar Eugenie Brinkema, Final Destination films are Settimo - Chesterpolio - Battaglie by their move away from the typical horror antagonist and toward the certainty and inevitability of death.
Final Destination films depart further from other horror films, even those aimed at teenagers, in that a family narrative is lacking, and there are no hauntings of any kind. As well, there is no sexuality—"neither the pursuit of pleasure in the slasher convention of easy bodily access Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls the monstrosity of sexual difference". Instead they are about the avoidance of pain and death; they are fundamentally "bitter The premonition of the roller coaster derailment in Final Destination 3 is without context or cause.
The avoidance of death by some characters grounds the necessity of their deaths, specifically the order in which they would have died on the roller coaster. Wendy's close analysis of photographs allows her to understand the deaths, but this is inevitably too late to save her friends. Ian Conrich, a film studies scholar, argues the series marks a key departure from slasher norms in that death itself becomes the villain.
Final Destination films draw influences from slasher cinema but the franchise's action sequences, including Final Destination 3 's roller coaster derailment, draw from action and disaster cinema. Because the deaths Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls extremely violent and excessive, any number can happen at once, and all of them are inevitable, he calls Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls films "grand slashers".
A notable feature of the Final Destination films is the threshold The Chant Has Begun - Level 42 - World Machine tipping-point logic of characters' deaths. The characters' deaths are brought about by "a series of neutral gestures, a set of constraints that will Niggas - DJ Drama - Gangsta Grillz XI: Generation Now lead to their conflagratory ends"; these include the placing of a drink, a rifling-through Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls CDs, and an ill-chosen doorstop.
The scene uses logics of temperature, color, and light to realize the characters' deaths, and to allow Wendy to recognize the threat they face. He argues that theme-park rides and horror cinema are mutually influential; the former draw from the frightening aspects of the latter, while the latter draw from the "theatrics and kinetics" of the former. Final Destination 3 was originally the last part of a trilogy and had been in development since the release of Final Destination 2.
The film's original title, Cheating Death: Final Destination 3changed during development. Initially, the film was to be filmed in 3Dbut this was abandoned. The idea of using a roller coaster derailment as the opening-scene disaster came from New Line Cinema executive Richard Bryant and was not inspired by the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad incident from when a derailment occurred that crushed a rider.
The Omen was the inspiration to depict death omens in photographs. He said psychologists have confirmed one Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls some people are afraid of riding a roller coaster is because they have no control over it and what happens to them.
During the casting process, Wong sought actors who could portray the main characters as heroic individuals with realistic qualities. Perry echoed this sentiment, saying that for the Wendy and Kevin characters they looked for actors who "had the charisma of movie stars, but weren't so ridiculously rarefied that you couldn't feel like you might know them". Wong said he had originally intended Wendy to be a "perky blonde" and reworked the character slightly after Winstead was selected.
Wong believed the actors were right for their roles. He felt Winstead "[brought] a kind of soulfulness to her role as Wendy" and though her character "is deeply affected by the accident", her strength allows her to remain in control. He described the character as "the kind of guy you want to hang out with, your goofy best buddy, but also someone who could rise to the occasion and become a hero". Johnson said she wore a rocker jacket during her second reading and was in a bad mood. As she was leaving, the filmmakers called her back to read some of Erin's sarcastic dialogue in a scene.
Johnson thought her dry sense of humorwhich the filmmakers caught, helped her land the part. He researched most of Ian's information and during read-throughs often asked Morgan about Ian's facts. Jesse Moss was cast as Wendy's boyfriend Jason Wise. Texas Battle played athlete Lewis Romero. Chelan Simmons took the role of Ashley Freund. Sam Easton portrayed school alumnus Frankie Cheeks. Tony Toddwho appeared in the first two films, did not return as the mortician Bludworth but voiced the devil statue at the roller coaster and a subway conductor.
Like the first two installments of the franchise, Final Destination 3 was filmed in VancouverCanada. The rest of the filming was done out of sequence. This led to the filming of a new ending sequence featuring a subway train derailment in November The death scenes required varying degrees of 2D and 3D graphic enhancement.
The roller coaster scene necessitated visual-effect shots. Custom-designed coaster cars were built and modified for the script; most of the model was hand-built and computer-designed MEL scripts added specific elements.
For the coaster-crash scenes, the actors were filmed performing in front of a green screento which a CGI background was added. Several of the roller coaster's cars were suspended with bungee cords to film the crash; the deaths required the use of CGI onscreen effects and each actor had a corresponding CGI double.
Meteor Studios produced the roller coaster and subway crashes while Digital Dimension handled the post-premonition death scenes. The death of Ian McKinley, who is bisected by a cherry picker, proved especially challenging.
A clean plate of the cherry picker falling was originally shot with a plate of Lemche acting crushed and falling to the ground with his bottom half in a partial green-screen suit. A standard CGI body of Lemche's height was used; several animation simulations of the body being crushed with a CGI object were filmed.
The director chose the version he liked Poor Butterfly - Various - Dutch Jazz Collection (Box Set). A new plate was then filmed with Lemche 4. Satz: Rondo. Allegretto - Various - Musik Für Kinder the chosen animation and positioning his body at the end.
It consisted of about 35 shots of CG skin, glass, fire, and smoke mixed with real fire and smoke. The subway crash in the film's epilogue used a CG environment reproducing the main aspects of the set. The score for Final Destination 3 was composed by Shirley Walkerwho wrote the soundtracks of the series' previous installments. Score mixer Bobby Fernandez created Cherry - The Tony Chris Trio - Penetrating At Clear Falls "gore-o-meter", measuring the violence of each death to ensure the score would match the scenes.
Lee enjoyed "put[ting his] own darker spin on it for the movie". Several months before the film's release, New Line Cinema set up a promotional website,  which linked to another site where visitors could download mobile-phone ringtones and wallpapers related to the film.
