Packed with more than 750 state-of-the-art special effects, including
exploding planets, talking robots and spaceship dogfights, one of the best-loved
television series of the 1960s becomes New Line Cinema's most ambitious
and eagerly anticipated presentation to date -- Lost In Space.
This much-awaited action epic charts the galactic adventures of the Robinson
family and their voyage aboard the Jupiter 2 spacecraft. Starring Gary Oldman,
William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Mimi Rogers, Heather Graham, Lacey Chabert and
Jack Johnson, Lost In Space takes audiences into the not-too-distant future
as Professor John Robinson (Hurt), his wife Maureen (Rogers), their daughters
Judy (Graham) and Penny (Chabert), and son Will (Johnson) are selected to
be the first family to colonize outer space.
Piloted by Major Don West (LeBlanc), the Jupiter 2 takes off to Alpha Prime,
the only other habitable planet in the galaxy. En route, their spacecraft
is sabotaged by arch villain Dr. Zachary Smith (Oldman), who is intent on
foiling their plan. When the Jupiter 2 strays dangerously off-course, the
Robinson family must band together and use their unique skills to complete
their mission or face certain death while Lost In Space.
