‘Land of the Lost’ premieres in L.A.

Will Ferrell and Co. on hand for Universal event

Universal’s bigscreen reincarnation of the classic sci-fi series “Land of the Lost,” starring Will Ferrell and Danny McBride, preemed to a packed Grauman’s Chinese Theater Saturday followed by a lavish after-party at the Renaissance Hotel’s Grand Ballroom.

“I was definitely funnier than Danny McBride,” Ferrell deadpanned afterward. “I’d say by a 30% margin, at least.”

The post-screening soiree, which featured prehistoric jungle decor, was also attended by Universal’s Ron Meyer, David Linde, Marc Shmuger and Donna Langley as well as original “Land of the Lost” creators Sid and Marty Krofft.

“We wanted to stay true to the series and maintain that surreal, stoney quality,” said director Brad Silberling. “Will and I emphasized that from the very beginning.”

Meanwhile, McBride was ready to unwind.

“If I’m not drunk, hanging naked from that weird freakin’ tree by night’s end, I’ll be extremely disappointed in myself.”
