Lost in Space

With the Earth running short of natural energy resources the Jupiter mission to colonize and exploit Alpha Prime seems to be the only chance of survival. Professor John Robinson (William Hurt) together with his wife Maureen (Mimi Rogers), his family and fighter pilot Don West (Matt LeBlanc) lead a desperate attempt to create a Hyper-Gate in orbit around the planet Alpha Prime to enable the rescue of Earth to begin. However, others have different reasons for reaching Alpha Prime and Dr. Smith (Gary Oldman) sabotages the Jupiter 2 but fails to get clear and becomes an unwelcome stowaway aboard ship. To escape the gravitational pull of the sun the Hyper-Drive is fired and the Jupiter 2, after a trip through hyperspace, emerges into a completely unknown part of the galaxy. A search of the star charts reveals that they are completely lost in an uncharted sector of space but this is only the beginning of their problems...

Danger Will Robinson! Matt LeBlanc turns in a surprisingly strong performance. Gary Oldman is a perfect Dr. Smith.
