After being taken on a wild adventure in Jurassic Park on Isla Nublar back in 1993, audiences worldwide were once more thrust into dinosaur chaos in The Lost World: Jurassic Park when the existence of Isla Sorna, a.k.a. Site B, was discovered.
While the film was released to mixed reviews, the fact that it was still a film with dinosaurs was obviously enough to drive in crowds and the sequel went on to make $618 million at the box office. Many of the characters from the original film reappeared, with Dr. Ian Malcolm taking Dr. Alan Grant's place as the main character as he once again returned to the place where dinosaurs roamed in order to study the animals in their natural habitat to gain support, and stop InGen from exploiting the site.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park was released in 1997, but 18 years later many of the cast are still very active with their acting work, take a look at what they look like now:
