Land of the Lost flops. Hard!

“Land of the Lost” has become the summer’s first major box-office casualty (“Terminator Salvation” underperformed but didn’t flop) the Will Ferrell starring comedy blockbuster making a shameful $19 million on opening weekend. Generally a lot of movies outside of the summer season would be contented with those figures but when your budget is $100 million, your leading man is hot property and you have a prime June release……not so much.

The few people who liked the film will then be disappointed to learn a sequel is off the cards. I’ll try and catch this on DVD, a trip to the theater seemingly now a waste of time and money. Hopefully Ferrell can recover, because that's the sort of financial doom that seriously damages a career.
