Trying to remember a movie I watched as a kid probably around 2005-2007 which had a scene of flying gargoyles or mutated monkeys trying to get the survivors inside a building in apocalyptic New York City. I can't remember 100% or not if it also involved time travel or not, I feel like it did with time "ripples" spreading out and destroying the beasts.

    There's 12 Monkey, which isn't exactly what you're describing, but sort of fits if you squint at it just right.

This sounds like the movie version of A Sound of Thunder - the time (2005) is the right period. Mutated monkeys, time travel, and an apocalyptic city. Also, time 'rippled' changing everything and/or was going to potentially destroy the present.

Here's the trailer.

    That's it, I kept looking for it with the word butterfly in it bringing me to the butterfly effect.

    I can understand why - in the short story (maybe the movie) a guy falls off the path while trying to shoot a dinosaur and crushes a butterfly. It changes the future. Commented Feb 7, 2022 at 15:18
