Will Ferrell’s LAND OF THE LOST Poster just released

landofthelost-poster-fullsize1Universal has released the poster to its summer release of LAND OF THE LOST. While the poster is fairly cool, the direction of this project is not! There’s no doubt that the original 1970’s Saturday morning television show was cheesy, but it was NOT a comedy. The concept about a modern day family transported back into prehistoric times actually had some solid Sci-fi themes and was an entertaining program that I used to watch religiously when I was a little kid. Will Ferrell obviously felt the concept would play well for laughs, so he hijacked the property. Personally, I’d rather see a film version played straight that respects the source material. This is one of the reasons I hate Ben Stiller’s Starsky and Hutch. Ferrell’s take on The Land of the Lost opens June 5, 2009. Poster comes courtesy of Cinematical
