  • Notes

    • In the source novel by Michael Crichton, the main scientists were mainly white and presumably heterosexual men. However, Robert Schenkkan, who wrote the teleplay for this remake, made the decision to change the characters' ethnicities, sexualities and genders because, he said in a May 2008 interview, "If you're going to update the story, which is our mandate, you have an obligation to reflect the world as it is".
