Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy Movie

Anyone a fan of the books? Anyone seen the trailers for this movie?

I'm looking forward to it myself, but curious if other people are interested in it.

Looking forward to it, but from what I've seen in the trailers, Marvin doesn't seem to be a patch on the one from the TV series.

Wooo hooo looks sweet... Since I'm a huge fan of the book Ill probably be a bit dissapointed but hopefully itll draw people to the books...

I can't wait to see it... It looks funny... alot of people are complaining that a bunch of things aren't in the movie...

no sh!TE! you can't put every single thing in the book in the movie its impossible...plus adams vision for the movie wasn't the same as the books..just like the TV series.....

Anyways Its gonna rule

DON'T PANIC

This was discussed in a thread a month or so ago. I loved the books; I'm a little nervous that the movie will be a disappointment.

One thing: Trillian is renamed Tricia for the movie... WTF? Why screw with Douglas Adams' characters names like that? That's a red-flag to me that the movie isn't true to the books.

Also, the film looks very high-tech... which I don't like. One of the charming things about the books is that it was sort of low-tech, even though amazing things always happened.

Lastly (a good thing) -- the actress who plays Trillian (Tricia) is Zooey Deschanel -- she was in Elf and Almost Famous. I think she's mega-sexy. She's also a great singer.




Peace.

Oh man, guess it's been too long since I read the books. Thanks for setting me straight, acs ;-D

And no matter what her character's name is, that actress is a hottie B-)

The book is quite funny, but the movie doesn't look as funny. But thats just from the trailers.
