Several movie websites have published their reports to the set of Land of the Lost and if you visit all of the coverage your idea of how the big-budget remake is shaping up to be will start to become a little clearer.

  • The first in what's promised to be several articles on CHUD presents reporter Devin Faraci's general thoughts about what he saw during his visit.
  • Collider's Frosty has an interview with star Will Ferrell and the actor reveals that he used to watch the 70s TV show. My brother and I loved Land of the Lost, Ferrell said. "It was kind of, for those of us who watched it, such a unique thing on Saturday mornings.  I just loved that it wasn't a silly cartoon. It seemed so real at the time and how did they make this show with dinosaurs and creatures and 'It looked so real!'  And  I wish I was Will! I always thought it was the coolest premise and the fact it didn't talk down to kids.  It seemed like a real adventure show, so I loved it."
  • JoBlo's Jimmy O. also hit the set and filed his report. "The whole soundstage felt so towering that it would have been easy to get lost in all there was to see. It truly felt like another world that has the essence of something far out of this decade… I believe dinosaurs lived there."
  •  IESB has an interview with co-star Danny McBride. "This has been a lot of looking at tennis balls and running away from dinosaurs. There were no dinosaurs in Tropic Thunder so that's different. The Tropic stuff, because we were in the jungle and it's 120 degrees and everyone's sweaty and it smells like pig shit, it was really easy to get into the zone of running for your life. Where here you've got to use the old mind bone a little bit more to figure out how you would react to a T-Rex running over top of you."
  • UGO also has some good stuff from Danny McBride too like this: "I actually watched a lot of Sid & Marty Kroft stuff when I was a kid. My parents were really into it so that was just something that they kind’ve opened the door for me. It was weird though, because I had watched a lot when I was a kid, but when I started to grow older, I had kind’ve almost forgotten about Land of the Lost. And then I think I saw a picture of a Sleestak somewhere, and it unlocked all those ancient fears. Oh God, I remember being horrified by the things...it was definitely a trippy day the first time the Sleestaks worked."
  • Latino Review's George Goush also got in on the LotL action and has the intel on the Sleestak costumes worn by the actors. "The suits are custom built for each actor. There are at least 30 Sleestak at any given time and the suits were really big and the masks heavy. They had webbing in between the claws, you also saw gills and the green lizard skin was really detailed and cool to check out. The big black eyes were creepy but if you put a lens over your eye you could actually see pretty good out of them. Akin to looking out of a dark tinted window. If the actor had to use the restroom, they cleverly built in Velcro flies so they could take a leak without having to remove the whole thing."
  • Over at Crave, reporter Fred Topel also interviewed Ferrell and got him to talk a little about the possibility of an Anchorman 2 movie.
  • Over at About.com is where Fred Topel published his interview with McBride.

While attending the ShoWest theater owners conference, Collider's Steven Weintraub took some photos of Land of the Lost promotional drink cups. They look like the kind of thing sold at the theater concession stand so we're laying our bets that this is where you will be able to buy your own collectible cup. See the selection of beverage holders over on Collider.

Director Brad Silberling sent Ain't It Cool News a photo of Chaka, the Pakuni ape-like boy from Land of the Lost. Chaka is played by Saturday Night Live writer Jorma Taccone and Silberling had to this to say: "Can't wait for everyone to see Jorma's performance. It's time for some Pakuni love in this world again..."
