The teaser trailer for Land of the Lost debuted during last week’s Super Bowl, and now the first full length trailer has arrived. I don’t have a lot of memory of the original television show, but it’s fairly evident that the updated movie doesn’t hew particularly close to the original’s premise. The original was about a park ranger and his two kids who slipped into a time warp during a rafting trip and wound up in a world of dinosaurs. Here, Will Ferrell still plays a park ranger, but he also appears to be a scientist of some sort, and he apparently swapped his two kids for some colleagues (the luminous Anna Friel and the not-so-luminous Danny McBride). Basically, it looks like Ferrell has swapped out afros, basketballs, race cars, ice skates, and soccer balls for dinosaurs, which is to say: It looks like every other Will Ferrell movie, which is also to say: It’ll make eleventy cajillion dollars and probably spawn a sequel. Fortunately, few — if any folks — have a particular attachment to the television show, which means we have no real memories available for roofies. It’s just a creepy, inappropriate touching of our childhoods.
