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.

Directed by Stephen Hopkins from a screenplay by Akiva Goldsman, Lost In Space, is produced by Mark W. Koch, Hopkins and Goldsman and executive produced by Mace Neufeld and Robert Rehme. Kris Wiseman serves as co-producer and Michael Ilitch, Jr. is co-executive producer. The behind-the-scenes creative team includes production designer Norman Garwood, director of photography Peter Levy, visual effects supervisor Angus Bickerton, costume designer Vin Burnham and editor Ray Lovejoy. The film's score was composed by Bruce Broughton. Scheduled for release on April 3, 1998, Lost In Space is a New Line Production, in association with Prelude Pictures.
