The Lost World: Jurassic Park (also known as Jurassic Park: The Lost World or simply The Lost World or Jurassic Park II) is a 1997 American science fiction adventure directed by Steven Spielberg. It is the second installment in the Jurassic Park film series. The film was produced by Gerald R. Molen and Colin Wilson. The screenplay was written by David Koepp, loosely based on Michael Crichton‘s 1995 novel The Lost World. The film stars Jeff Goldblum, Julianne Moore, Pete Postlethwaite, and Arliss Howard.
Four years after the events of Jurassic Park, dinosaurs have secretly survived and been allowed to roam free on a deserted island off of Central America‘s Pacific Coast. In the time between the two films, John Hammond loses control of his company, InGen, to his nephew, Peter Ludlow. Ludlow assembles a team to bring the animals back to the mainland to bring in revenue and restore the company. Hammond sees a chance to redeem himself for his past mistakes and sends an expedition led by Dr. Ian Malcolm to reach the island before InGen’s team can get there. The two groups confront each other in the face of extreme danger and must team up for their own survival.
After the original book’s release and the first film’s success, Crichton was pressured by fans and Spielberg himself for a sequel novel. After the book was published in 1995, production began on a film sequel. The Lost World ’s plot and imagery is substantially darker than the previous film. Despite mixed reviews, it was a box office success, grossing $618 million worldwide.
