The title of the novel was simply "The Lost World", with the cover showing the familiar Jurassic Park logo to establish it as a sequel. However, the studio feared that the public might confuse it with the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle classic of the same title (the title and many plot elements were indeed deliberate references by Michael Crichton), and originally considered naming this movie "The Lost Island". In the end, the novel's title was kept, but "Jurassic Park" was appended to solidify the sequel connection. See more »
These islands are fictional, of course. Still, when Nick radios for help from the abandoned operations center, he gives Isla Sorna's latitude as "9 degrees, 58 minutes" north, and starts giving the longitude as "85 degrees". By itself, that would put Sorna within Costa Rica's mainland. Sorna is supposedly 87 miles SW of Isla Nublar (dubbed 120 miles west of Costa Rica), so to be in the Pacific, Sorna's longitude would need to be 88 or 89 degrees west instead. See more »

The 2000 UK DVD double box set release of both the Jurassic Park films featured a number of deleted scenes not featured on any release or test screening beforehand. There are also a number of outtakes unseen before included on both films. See more »
Perhaps if it didn't follow such a masterpiece, it wouldn't have been such a let-down.
There are moments, as brief as they may be, of genuine entertainment in 'The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)'. Flashes of the creative brilliance behind the lens occasionally seep onto the screen, and it is in these sequences that the picture finds its footing as an incredibly inconsistent, at times confusingly so, follow-up to one of cinema's greatest achievements. It does manage to make its own mark on the genre and even deconstruct the formula that would go on to form the basis of every entry in the franchise - including itself, despite its best efforts - while also never even remotely reaching the heights of its predecessor. In-between its select moments of true suspense, frustratingly frenzied action and generally enjoyable moments centred around dinosaur danger is an uneven and, at times, dull film full of bizarre plot-points and an unnecessary third-act that straight-up shatters all credibility (or perhaps even good-will) built up before it. It's all done with the right intentions, though. This, along with its continued technical prowess, actually makes the final result all the more disappointing. Perhaps if it didn't follow such a masterpiece, it wouldn't have been such a let-down. 6/10
