What is ‘Lost in Space’?

Based on the 1960s TV series of the same name, Lost in Space takes place in the far-flung future of 2058, as humanity seeks to colonize the stars to escape a polluted planet. Married scientists John (Hurt) and Maureen Robinson (Mimi Rogers) lead the mission, accompanied by their children Judy (Heather Graham), Penny (Lacey Chabert), and Will (Jack Johnson), military advisor Major Don West (LeBlanc), and an advanced robot (voiced by Dick Tufeld). However, thanks to stowaway saboteur Dr. Smith (Oldman), the ship veers off course, and ends up — you guessed it — lost in space.

The family has to put aside their differences and survive the hazards of outer space, including hostile alien spiders, time travel, and the machinations of Smith. Several of the TV show’s cast members make cameos, including June Lockhart, Angela Cartwright, Mark Goddard, and Marta Kristen; a pre-Mad Men Jared Harris also pops up in a key role. The film debuted in the spring of 1998 at #1 at the box office, ending Titanic‘s 16-week reign atop the charts, and ultimately made $136 million USD on an $80 million budget. However, it was poorly received by critics, and did not spawn the sequels New Line Cinema had hoped for.

Although the film ultimately did not spawn any sequels, the Lost in Space franchise lived on, eventually, in the form of a Netflix series, which featured Molly Parker, Toby Stephens, and Taylor Russell as members of the Robinson family, and Parker Posey as Dr. Smith. Original cast members Cartwright, Lockhart, and Bill Mumy (who did not appear in the 1998 film) had guest roles on the series, which ran for three seasons before concluding in 2021.

Shout Factory’s Lost in Space Blu-ray set will be released on April 9, 2024, and can be pre-ordered now. Stay tuned to Collider for future updates, and watch the theatrical trailer for Lost in Space below.
