Ferrell looks Lost

Mar. 26, 2008by: Ben Barna
Its a relief to see Will Ferrell in a non-sports spoof role, especially after just about review I read on SEMI-PRO called the formula tired and used. Had it come before any other Ferrell sports comedies, it might have been praised. So these first pictures of Will Ferrell in the adventure fantasy LAND OF THE LOST bring me some reprieve. Its nice to see Will do normal again. Because Will can do normal, especially normal caught in the extraordinary. Remember STRANGER THAN FICTION?

Directed by Brad Silberling (A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS), the film follows Ferrell who plays a disgrace paleontologist who is banished to work in the La Brea Tar Pits until a young scientist (Anna Friel) convinces him to go on an expedition that will lead them to a land filled with dinosaurs and monkey people.

Extra Tidbit: Is Ferrell smoking in that third picture and is that part of the shoot? Or is he a smoker.

Smokin'

If you look at the images, it looks like Ferrell's character sneaks off behind the fake elephant to grab a smoke. And I think we all know what would happen if that cigarette hit the tar...

I'm still HATING what they're doing to "Land of the Lost."

Sure, it was a cheap, kids' series...but it was also a surprisingly intelligent, cheap, kids' series (like how the Sleestak, for example, devolved from a technologically advanced race into a bunch of primitive, superstitious nitwits) that was written by the likes of Larry Niven, Theodore Sturgeon and Ben Bova.

If Hollywood can respect a cartoon that was basically just a glorified commercial for a pre-existing line of toys

If Hollywood can respect a cartoon that was basically just a glorified commercial for a pre-existing line of toys ("Transformers") then why can't they also respect "Land of the Lost"?
