Jurassic Park III: Apocalypse is a 2001 epic monster technothriller adventure story written by Oscar Xylon. The third installment (fanonically) in the Jurassic Park franchise, following The Lost World: Jurassic Park, it stars Laura Dern, Josh Hartnett, Téa Leoni, William H. Macy, and Max Thieriot. Set in 2001, it focuses on a fictitious dinosaur-borne virus outbreak, in the mysterious Isla Viuda and later around the world. Apocalypse's plot speculates to how extent science is aware of the spread of a deadly, contagious disease.

The story explores an alternative timeline, whose central plot is based on ideas derived from Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World (1912), Delos W. Lovelace's King Kong (1932), Michael Crichton's The Andromeda Strain (1969), Richard Preston's The Hot Zone: A Terrifying True Story (1976), and John Brosnan's Carnosaur (1984). The title refers to Book of Revelation though it was not used as basis material.

The story garnered many accolades in a variety of categories, with particular positive reviews from critics upon release. It was praised for its narrative, structure and characters, while some criticised its long reading content. A tie-in literature initiative was released prior to the release of Apocalypse.

Synopsis

Oscar Xylon continues exploring his imagination, creating more alternative film sequels with a trip to a new mysterious island for some dinosaur action. But could it be better than the real Jurassic Park III?

Jurassic Park is regarded as a landmark in cinema history, changing the way films are made and still holding up to this day, both as a classic within its own genre and across the medium. The sequels, however, are not considered to be in that same ballpark. Unlike Back to the Future or Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park as a film series has never attained the same degree of lionization as these other Spielbergian franchises. You would never hear the Jurassic Park trilogy (now hexology) being mentioned in anyone’s top five favourite film sagas. But what if it had the chance to improve? Let’s say for the sake of argument that Steven Spielberg and crew returned for a third outing, A.I. Artificial Intelligence didn’t happen as a result, and they followed through on a concrete plan to give the franchise a worthy ending similar to The Last Crusade.
