The Lost World: Jurassic Park
Spielberg's Role: Director
US Release Date: 1997
Living up to the name in its
subtitle, The Lost World: Jurassic Park has been
gold from day one. The $75mill spent on the
sequel to Jurassic Park was earned back in its
opening weekend, as movie goers swarmed the
theaters. After a three year break from directing,
Spielberg still makes a powerful mark.
Steven Spielberg promised
blockbuster, must see special effects and action
with Jurassic Park, and he delivered. He
promised large scale commercial success, and
lunch box makers across the country responded.
This time he is promising a sequel. He doesn't
have to promise anything more.
World is based on a script by Michael
Crichton (pictured), author of Jurassic Park
and Twister to name a few. This movie
contains much more action than the first, leaving
out the explanation of how the dinosaurs came to
being. The movie stars Jeff Goldblum and Julianne
Unlike most movies after
opening weekend, The Lost World is still building
momentum. Only 1 week after the $93million
holiday weekend debut, the studio sold the
television rights to Fox for $80million. This
price will allow them to broadcast the movie 10
times in the next 10 years.
