Comments: The movie, "Lost in Space", is an $80 million spin-off of the classic '60's TV adventure series. The movie starts in the year 2056. The Robinson family is selected to travel through space to another planet to prepare it for human colonization. The
space vehicle, "Jupiter-2", is piloted by Don West. Dr. Smith is the evil stow away. The space vehicle flies off course and they
get 'lost in space'. Together, they have to return to planet Earth and save the human race.
Cameo appearances from some of the original cast include the original Robinson sisters - Angela Cartwright ( Penny ) and
Marta Kristen ( Judy ) as well as June Lockhart ( Maureen ) and Mark Goddard ( West ).
"Lost in Space" includes an open-ended finish. No surprise here. If all goes well there will be sequels? Lost in Space is opening
in a record 3,306 theaters. The previous record had been held by "The Lost World: Jusrassic Park" which opened in 3,281 theaters on 23 May 1997.
