Amazon.com, of all places, has the exclusive on the trailer for the forthcoming Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy movie. I can't wait to see it!
The book is one of the few that I can say I've read more than once. In fact, I've read all four books in the trilogy more than once (if you have to correct me, you don't get the joke). I have to say that it takes some balls to develop a well-known book into a movie (Lord of The Rings included), so it'll be interesting to see how it plays out. Arthur appears to be a Brit, but I find it odd that everyone else is not.
I had the text-based Infocom game back in the day on my Apple II+, and I wish I still had it. It came with a piece of pocket fluff, a microscopic space fleet and a button that says "Don't Panic." Oddly enough, you can play it online now here.
