Land of the Lost Teaser Movie Poster

The Blot hates remakes…end of story. They typically bring nothing to the table and many times hurt the legacy of the original material. I really just don’t understand where all the creativity in Hollywood has gone. With that being said, I’m kind of excited about Will Ferrell’s upcoming remake of Sid and Marty Krofft’s classic children’s television show Land of the Lost.

Why you might ask would The Blot be excited about this remake? Because unlike so many other properties, Ferrell’s unique brand of comedy was made for the Krofft’s kooky/trippy 70’s style. Plus, I love that the movie appears to be staying true to the original Land of the Lost by giving its non-human characters that classic clunky Krofft look, latex rubber suits and all. Now if only we can get a big budget remake of H.R. Pufnstuf!

Land of the Lost stars Will Ferrell, Anna Friel, Danny R. McBride and Jorma Taccone, and is Directed by Brad Silberling. It will debut in theaters on June 5, 2009.
