The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Four years after the failure of Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar, John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) reveals to Ian Malcolm (Jeff Goldblum) that there was another island, Isla Sorna ("Site B") on which dinosaurs were bred before being transported to Isla Nublar. Left alone since the disaster, the dinosaurs have flourished, and Hammond assembles a team to visit and document the area before it is exploited by others. When the team reaches the island, they soon discover the presence of another group of people. They however are not there for biological data but instead have something more sinister in mind. After a series of events, both groups become stranded when all their communication equipment is lost. It is then that the terror really begins as both groups scramble for their lives as they try to find a way off the island alive.

Plot hole: How did the men on the ship get killed? The bridge was intact and the T-Rex was still inside the cargo hold. [A raptor was meant to escape from the boat when it pulled in to the harbour, but they cut the scene from the film and now that bit doesn't appear to make any sense.] (01:40:55)

Suggested correction: This is completely wrong. For one thing, the Raptors being on the cargo ship was NOT used in any way; just a photo that never went any further. Second, there's a storyboard showing exactly how the T-Rex got loose and you can actually see this in the film; meaning the damaged cage and the cargo hold looking as if the T-Rex was trying to escape. I highly recommend checking out Klayton Fioriti talk about both the deleted scene and scene in the film on YouTube for more information. Either way, it makes sense when you look into it.

Ian Malcom: Yes, ooo, ahh, it always starts out that way, and then comes all the running and screaming.

Trivia: In the book, the character Nick does not exist. Instead, there is a genius professor that is constantly going into battles of intelligence with Ian Malcolm. Also in the book, Kelly has absolutely no relation with Ian at all, Sarah is the last to get to the island (unknowingly with the bad guys), the professor is the reason they go to the island, and, as far as I can remember, Hammond doesn't make any appearance in the book.

More trivia for The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Question: What happened to the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar? They wander around Isla Sorna on this movie, but no mention is made of the dinosaurs in the original. Does anybody know about their fate? Were they killed? Did they die naturally?

Answer: The dinosaurs on Isla Nublar are not mentioned. In the first book they are destroyed by bombing, which makes the second island more surprising - a lost world.
