landofthelostsuperbowlspot-013109Universal Pictures has released the Super Bowl spot for Land of the Lost.  Looks pretty good, especially visually.  I’m a big fan of both Anna Friel and Will Ferrell so that alone is enough to interest me in the movie.  Watch the trailer after the jump. (more…)

Comic-Con 2008: “Land of the Lost Panel” July 26, 2008 7:45 pm

Universal Pictures’ panel for the upcoming comedy Land of the Lost, starring Will Ferrell and Anna Friel, featured the first teaser for the film.  Here’s the summary of what was shown courtesy ComingSoon.net:

Will Ferrell sits on a stool beneath a spotlight in an old, darkened room strumming on a banjo and slowly singing the original theme. He makes it about halfway through and then looks up saying, “I always forget this part. Does anyone remember the words?” Words flash across the screen: MARSHALL, WILL, HOLLY, ROUTINE EXPEDITION. The scene comes back to Will, trying again to sing but having to mumble through some of the words. “LAND OF THE LOST, 2009” appears and the teaser ends.

At that point, and to applause, director Brad Silberling joined stars Anna Friel, Jorma Taccone and Danny McBride and original creators Sid and Marty Krofft on the stage.  Here are some highlights from the panel:

  • Right off the bat, Silberling promised the things that would definitely make an appearance in the film: Pylons and crystals (“In new and wonderous ways,” Enik, Cha-Ka, and dinosaours Dopey and Grumpy).
  • He noted that Uncle Jack was sequel territory.
  • As a special surprise, Will Ferrell made a video appearance. Though pre-taped, the joker was set up that he was answering questions live from another hotel in San Diego and had bad audio connection.

They ended the panel showing a brief bit of footage, which they said would be officially available within the month:

White on black text reads:

10 thousand pounds

Over 20 feet tall

Driven by hunger

Never before witnessed by man

The scene cuts to a dinosaur walking through a prehistoric jungle. In the foreground, Will Ferrell looks directly into the camera with his back to the creature.

“He’s right behind me, isn’t he?” says Ferrell, “I’m just trying not to move.”

The theme comes up and it cuts to the “Land of the Lost, 2009” text.
