Win a trip for two to Chicago, Illinois

Land of the Lost, the gross out comedy of the year was released on Blu-ray and DVD on November 23, and to celebrate we have an amazing trip for two to Chigao, Illinois where you can see some very realistic prehistoric mamals for yourself at the Rockford Museum.


Land Of The Lost was released on Blu-Ray and DVD on November 23

We have teamed up with Universal Pictures, Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and Chicago’s Essex Inn Hotel to offer this amazing trip for two. Our winner and their guest will have return flights to Chicago, three nights stay at Chicago’s Essex Inn Hotel, two nights at the brand new Fairfield Inn of Rockford, Illinois, two tickets to visit the Field Museum, Chicago and two tickets to the Burpee Museum, Rockford plus our winner will also receive their very own DVD of the film!

Will Ferrell stars as has-been scientist Dr Rick Marshall, inventor of a sideways-time-travel device which plays show tunes from A Chorus Line.

He is duly sucked into a space-time vortex and spat back into pre-history. Now Marshall has no weapons (well, he has a banjo), few skills and questionable smarts to survive in an alternate universe full of marauding dinosaurs and fantastic creatures from beyond our world – a place of awe-inspiring sights and mega-scaled comedy known as the LAND OF THE LOST.

Somewhere a discredited quantum palaeontologist is going to get stuck: really stuck.

Sucked alongside him are whip-smart and pretty damn gorgeous research assistant Holly (Anna Friel) and a redneck survivalist Will (Danny McBride).

Chased by a T-Rex and stalked by alien reptiles known as Sleestaks, Marshall, Will and Holly must rely on their only ally, a missing-link primate called Chaka, to navigate out of the hybrid dimension. 

This is one weird neighbourhood: cheesed-off dinosaurs, talking ape-men, lizardy who-knows-what’s living cheek-by-jowl with a wandering ice-cream man (chow for velociraptors), quite a nice motel, and a hologram that sounds just like Leonard Nimoy.
