Opening this Friday is director Brad Silberling’s “Land of the Lost”. As most of you already know, the film is based on the classic series by Sid & Marty Krofft and it stars Will Ferrell as Dr. Rick Marshall and Danny McBride, Anna Friel, and Jorma Taccone also star.
I saw a screening and have to say…it’s a lot dirtier than I expected. In fact, I was quite surprised at how much they got away with for a PG-13 movie. If you thought this was just going to be some safe family film, you’re in for a surprise.
So to help promote the film, I recently interviewed director Brad Silberling as a reporter for our partner website Omelete. As most of you know, Collider and Omelete are partners. That’s why you see both of our logos in the movie clips and the video interviews. So a big thanks to them for making this happen.
Anyway, during my interview Brad revealed that the DVD/Blu-ray will have 35 minutes of deleted scenes and that he’ll eventually release an extended edition down the road. He also talked about how he worked with the MPAA to make sure the movie would get a PG-13 and a lot more. Take a look after the jump:
