Jurassic Park III

Jurassic Park III is a 2001 American science fiction action film directed by Joe Johnston and written by Peter Buchman, Alexander Payne and Jim Taylor. It is the third installment in the Jurassic Park franchise, and the final film in the original Jurassic Park trilogy, following The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997). It is also the first film in the franchise not to be directed by Steven Spielberg (who instead served as executive producer), as well as the first not to be based on a novel by Michael Crichton; however, the film features characters and ideas by Crichton, including scenes from his first novel Jurassic Park (1990). The film stars William H. Macy and Téa Leoni as a divorced couple who deceive paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) into helping them find their son (Trevor Morgan), who is missing on Isla Sorna.


Twelve-year-old Eric Kirby and his mother's boyfriend, Ben Hildebrand, go parasailing near the restricted Isla Sorna. As the boat enters a thick fog, the crew is killed by an unknown attacker, prompting Ben to detach the line before the vessel crashes into rocks. Eric and Ben drift towards the island.
