The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Jurassic Parkis a 1993 American science fiction adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg . The film is based on the novel of the same name by Michael Crichton . It stars Sam Neill , Laura Dern , Jeff Goldblum , Richard Attenborough , Martin Ferrero , and Bob Peck . The film centers on the fictional Isla Nublar near Costa Rica in the Central American Pacific Coast, where a billionaire philanthropist and a small team of genetic scientists have created an amusement park of cloned dinosaurs .

Before Crichton's book was even published, many studios had already begun bidding to acquire the picture rights. Spielberg, with the backing of Universal Studios , acquired the rights before publication in 1990, and Crichton was hired for an additional $ 500,000 to adapt the novel for the screen. David Koepp wrote the final draft, which left out much of the novel's exposition and violence, and made numerous changes to the characters. Filming locations were in both Hawaii and California .

Jurassic Parkis regarded as a landmark in the use of computer-generated imagery, and received highly positive reviews from critics for such. During its release, the film grossed over $900 million worldwide, becoming the most successful film released up to that time (surpassingE.T. the Extra-Terrestrialand surpassed 4 years later byTitanic), and it is currently the 20th highest grossing feature film (taking inflation into account, it is the 18th-highest-grossing film in North America ). It is the most financially successful film for Universal and Steven Spielberg. It won the Academy Award for Best Sound Mixing , Best Sound Editing , and Best Visual Effects .

Because of the film's success, two sequels were made,The Lost World: Jurassic Park, which was released on May 23, 1997, andJurassic Park IIIwhich was released on July 18, 2001.

Eccentric billionaire John Hammond ( Richard Attenborough ), CEO of InGen , has recently created Jurassic Park: a theme park populated with dinosaurs cloned from the DNA extracted from insects preserved in prehistoric amber .

After a park worker is attacked by a dinosaur, Hammond's investors, represented by their lawyer Donald Gennaro ( Martin Ferrero ), demand that experts visit the park and verify that it is safe. Gennaro invites Dr. Ian Malcolm ( Jeff Goldblum ), a mathematician, while Hammond invites paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant ( Sam Neill ) and paleobotanist Dr. Ellie Sattler ( Laura Dern ). They are joined on the island by Hammond's two grandchildren—Tim ( Joseph Mazzello ) and Lex Murphy ( Ariana Richards ). Hammond asks Malcolm, Grant, and Sattler what their thoughts are about having recreated dinosaur species. The three of them engage in an intense philosophical debate about the ethics of having cloned extinct dinosaurs with Gennaro being the only one to express optimism. The group sets off to explore the park while Hammond observes his guests along with Head Technician Ray Arnold ( Samuel L. Jackson ) and his game warden, Robert Muldoon ( Bob Peck ).

The head computer programmer, Dennis Nedry ( Wayne Knight ), is secretly in the employ of one of InGen's corporate rivals, and has been paid to steal fertilized dinosaur embryos . During his theft, Nedry deactivates the park's security system, allowing him access to the embryo storage. During the exploration, Sattler spots a sick Triceratops and the group gets out to investigate. With a storm heading in, everyone gets back into the cars except for Sattler, who stays with the park doctor to look after the animal. The rest of the group, who have been stranded in the park due to the system shutdown, are attacked by theTyrannosaurus, which kills Gennaro. Grant and the children are able to escape.

Meanwhile, a fleeing Nedry crashes his jeep. He decides to use a winch on the front of his jeep to tie it to a tree that will bring him to the road to help him reach the dock. While Nedry is tying the winch around the tree, he encounters aDilophosaurus, which he ignores due to it's small size. But as he is getting back in the truck, the creature screeches, unviels it's frills, and spits venom at him, blinding him, and then mauls and kills him.

Sattler and Muldoon try to find Grant and the children, but to no avail. Then they find Malcolm under the demolished bathroom. As they try to look for the children deep inside the jungle, Malcolm realizes theTyrannosaurusis near. He orders Sattler and Muldoon to flee, with theTyrannosauruschasing after them. The three of them are able to escape in their jeep.

Meanwhile, Grant and the children climb up a high tree to avoid the Tyrannosaurus, and in a distance from the tree, they can see a family ofBrachiosaurus.

Back at the Visitor's center, being unable to decipher Nedry's code to reactivate the security fences, the group decides to take the drastic measure of rebooting the entire park's computer and electrical network. Arnold refuses at first by worrying that the park's network might not come back on at all, but Hammond tells him that that people are dying. Arnold, along with Sattler, Hammond, Muldoon and Malcolm, shut down the park's grid and retreat to the emergency bunker, from where Arnold heads to the maintenance bunker to reboot the system. When he doesn't return, Ellie and Muldoon decides to head for the bunker. At the same time, Grant and the children discover a nest full of hatched eggs, indicating the dinosaurs are breeding on their own.

As Muldoon and Sattler proceed to the maintenance bunker, Muldoon notices that they are being hunted by Velociraptors . Muldoon is killed by a raptor, while Sattler makes it to the bunker and restarts the park's systems. After Sattler turns the park's systems back on, she almost gets killed by a raptor hidden within some cables; she then discovers Arnold's mutilated remains and narrowly escapes the raptor. At the same time, Tim, Lex and Grant climb an electrified fence out of the park's animal zone and Tim is nearly killed upon the reactivation of the electricity.

Grant and the children head for the visitor's center; he leaves them alone in the kitchen while he reunites with Sattler and the others. The kids escape two raptors before reuniting with Grant and Sattler. Lex is able to assist getting the park's security systems working from the control room. Grant contacts Hammond and tells him to call the mainland for rescue, but the two raptors find the group and attack.

The group flees through the vents, only to be cornered in the entrance hall by the raptors, who prepare to strike. However, theTyrannosaurusbreaks into the main hall and attacks the raptors, allowing the foursome to escape outside where they are rescued by Malcolm and Hammond. Hammond and the others escape via helicopter. Hammond takes one last look at Jurassic Park, before boarding the helicopter. As the helicopter flies away, Grant watches a flock of pelicans gliding over the sea.
