Sometimes, in the case of movies like Batman Begins, X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Star Trek, you can understand why it was necessary to make them and/or reboot the franchises. But then there’s those movies that make you wonder why, or how, they ever got made. In this case I’m talking about the big screen adaptation of TV’s Land of The Lost featuring Wil Farrell, Danny McBride and Anna Friel.
I’m a fan of the original show and I’m not sure why this time around the filmmakers thought it would be a good idea to make it a comedy. The film would have been better served if it had been done more seriously as it was in the original series. It could still have humor (which is a big thing for me and comes up in my review of Star Trek earlier today) and it could still have action, suspense and cool looking Sleestaks.
Love it or hate it, this movie is coming out later this year . Until then, over at Rope of Silicon they have some new photos from the film as well as a new trailer curtesy of Universal Pictures. Whatever your opinion, these new pics and trailer do peak my curiousity and actually make me somewhat interested to see the movie. I know, I’m as surprised as you are. Watch the trailer below and check out more photos after the jump.
