Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

The Hitchhiker's Guide "trilogy" are the funniest books I've ever read, hands down. Even with my hands in the usual position, they're the funniest things I've ever read - between me and my brother, the books have been dog-eared to the point where my dog would probably disclaim any sort of resemblance.

And so it was with trembling H2G2-geek-pleasure that I learnt that the trailer for the movie is coming out next week. And production stills from the movie are already available. Here's Ford Prefect (Mos Def) and Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman) having Vogon poetry read to them:

Now if they do a good version of the talking cow in Milliways, I will be a very happy man.

The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy movie site, including the teaser trailer. Must say that the Guide logo that they devised reminds me of the old Let's Go logo.

That cow made me a vegetarian.

I've got my towel all ready. God, think of it. Theaters full of towel-toting geeks. Right on. It won't be quite as dramatic as the day we all dressed as pirates to se Pirates of the Caribbean, but still: pretty good.

Ah, us Hitchhiker geeks are mostly harmless anyway...
