Teaser Poster: LAND OF THE LOST

Which, if you’re a fan–fine; if you’re not—like me, then it leaves you with about as much desire to see the film as having Will Smith be the next James Bond. To be candid, I was NEVER a fan of the series and am old enough to remember it being on. I was on the fence about it… Read more »
