Will Ferrell

Right place, wrong time.

In theaters June 5

“Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr. Rick Marshall, sucked into one and spat back through time. Way back. Now, Marshall has no weapons, few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world – a place of spectacular sights and super-scaled comedy known as the Land of the Lost.

Sucked alongside him for the adventure are crack-smart research assistant Holly (Anna Fariel) and a redneck survivalist (Danny McBride) named Will. Chased by T-Rex and stalked by painfully slow reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally – a primate called Chaka (Jorma Taccone) to navigate out of the hybrid dimension. Escape from this routine expedition gone awry and they’re heroes. Get stuck, and they’ll be permanent refugees in the Land of the Lost.” (Source: Coming Soon)

The official poster of Land of the Lost looks quite faithful to the spirit of the original series. Just compare with the original opening of Land of the Lost:

I think that Land of the Lost will help Will Ferrell’s waning career: he was really needing such a movie to move out of the rut he was slowly getting into!

    all I can say is, if you have millions of dollars to throw away; by all means put Will Ferrell in your movie and the whole thing will turn into a pile of crap for sure! He can’t act and he’s as more humorous as a cancer diagnosis!

  2. jb s.

    Obviously you have no sense of humor if you don’t like Will Ferrell.

  3. ED

    I agree Will Ferrell is a waste of time I don’t understand how he gets paid to act like a total idiot on camera! and what is up with all of these older ugly guys getting all of the roles there must be better looking guys out there that can actually act!

  4. sc'Que?

    Will Ferrell and his ilk are the bane of my existence! Can Hollywood, seriously, be dumbed down any further?

    I’ve been waiting for a remake of this Saturday morning fave for many years… but this is not it! I doubt this film will be worth a $100,000 Bar (the Nestle candy bar that used to sponsor the show).

    Looks like another steaming turd from Will Ferrell. Hey Hollywood, maybe his next film could be Stepbrother News Anchor/Basketball Player/Ice Skater Drives Nascar !! Wouldn’t that be a hoot hyuk hyuk!!!!!

  6. dik Will Ferrell's fan

    Will Ferrel is a saint. I hope he reads your shit and beats the living f*ck out you. Will Ferrel is a man. He is 40. He is the man who made the Eiffel tower out of steel and bronze.

    Psh. Who cares about Will Ferrell? You know what this movie REALLY needs? It should TOTALLY have Dr. Steel’s “Land of the Lost” song. It would definitely make the movie awesome.

    I think this may give a good movie. The last couple have been clunkers. I grew up with the TV show and loved it. I thought that Brendan Frasier would have been good for the role.

    He at least does something to amuse people while you sit and complain about how dumb it’s going to be. What have you done for society that brings laughter to others?

    I’m only interested if they use the clunky stop-motion animation on the dinosaurs, and only show 3 sleestaks at a time! That would be really clever.

    why try to make this a comedy ? as a kids drama it was successful. and Ferrell is lame

  12. Joan Cunningham

    As a child watching Land of the Lost, what I liked was that it was a show about a family, father and his two children, surviving in a land full of dinosaurs and other creatures. The movie has replaced Marshall’s children with assistants who have the same names as Marshall’s children. I will pass on this movie. They have ruined the one thing I liked about the original Land of the Lost, the family.

    Hey, scr** all of you who talk trash about will ferrel. this movie is halarious. Will ferrel is halarious. All of you are too stubborn to see that because he starred in a comedy version of your ” childhood ” favorite show. Just watch another on of his movies and tell us what you think. Oh and I will fight you and leave you so messed up if you diss him again. That’s all I have to say.
