The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
The film picks up four years after the disaster at Jurassic Park. On a nearby island, dinosaurs have secretly survived and been allowed to roam free but now there is a more ominous threat--a plan to capture and bring the dinosaurs to the mainland. John Hammond, who has lost control of his InGen company, sees a chance to redeem himself for his past mistakes and sends an expedition led by Ian Malcolm to reach the island before the mercenary team gets there. The two groups confront each other in the face of extreme danger and must team up for their own survival in a race against time.

More Movie Taglines:
- Something has survived
- They're Walking Our Streets
- Dr. Ian Malcolm: Did you find him? Roland Tembo: Just the parts they didn't like.
Nick Van Owen: You seem like you have a shred of common sense, what the hell are you doing here? Roland Tembo: Somewhere on this island is the greatest predator there ever lived. The second greatest predator must take him down. [grins] Nick Van Owen: [referring to Roland's gun] You gonna use that? Roland Tembo: If he doesn't surrender, yes. Nick Van Owen: [chuckles] The animal exists on the planet for the first time in tens of millions of years and the only way you can express yourself is to kill it. Roland Tembo: Remember that chap about twenty years ago? I forget his name. Climbed Everest without any oxygen, came down nearly dead. When they asked him, they said why did you go up there to die? He said I didn't, I went up there to live.
[about the poison on the darts in their guns] Eddie Carr: The most powerful neurotoxin in the world. It works faster than the nerve conduction velocity, which means the animal's down before it actually feels the - P! - prick of the dart. Dr. Ian Malcolm: Is there an antidote? Eddie Carr: What, like if you shot yourself in the foot? Don't do that, you would be dead before you even knew you had an accident.
Eddie Carr: Violence and technology... not good bedfellows!
Dr. Ian Malcolm: When you try to sound like Hammond, it comes off as a hustle. I mean, it's not your fault. They say talent skips a generation. So, I'm sure your kids will be sharp as tacks. Peter Ludlow: Hammond's reach exceeded his grasp. Mine does not. Dr. Ian Malcolm: Taking dinosaurs off this island is the worst idea in the long, sad history of bad ideas. And I'm gonna be there when you learn that.
- Director Steven Spielberg had to attend an early screening for Swingers (1996) in order to give approval for the use of the Jaws (1975) theme. There he was so impressed by Vince Vaughn that he offered him a part in this film.
At least five scenes were cut from the film before release, and some appeared in the trailer: Peter Ludlow talking to the InGen committee about their expenses, Roland and Ajay talking in a bar, T-rexes trying to attack Kelly, who was left alone in the High Hide, The Raptors and T-rexes fighting in the rex's nest, and Pteranodons attacking the rescue helicopter.
When the T-rex bites the traffic signal in San Diego, a street sign on the right edge of the screen reads in part "NO DINOSAURS".
The man that is eaten by the T-Rex next to the video store (in San Diego) is David Koepp, one of the writers of the film. He is credited as "Unlucky Bastard".
Director Cameo: [Steven Spielberg] Reflected in the TV broadcasting the CNN story about the return of the dinosaurs, sitting on the couch next to Jeff Goldblum and eating popcorn.
