Starring: Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Anna Friel, Jorma Taccone Director: Brad Silberling
U.S. Opening Date: June 5th, 2009
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 Friel) 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.
Based on the classic television series created by Sid
& Marty Krofft, Land of the Lost is directed by Brad Silberling and
produced by Jimmy Miller and Sid & Marty Krofft.
One cannot imagine this wonderfully cheesy and kitsch
‘Seventies morning TV show for children (the theme song has to be heard to be
believed!) being remade as anything else but a comedy starring Will Ferrell . .
