Just caught the new trailer for Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy from
Amazon.com. Looks really good, for a movie that should have been made twenty
years ago. I mention it here, because I know that Pterry fans and Douglas
Adams fans tend to overlap, and I have heard plenty of Adams references on
this group over the years. Has anyone else seen the trailer yet? Any
thoughts? I have only one real complaint, and that is that Zaphod has only
one head. Even the tv series in the eighties at least made an attempt at
replicating the two-headed effect. You would think that in this age of slick
special effects, a big budget project like HGTTG would leap at the chance to
flex its computer generated muscles by adding a CG head.
PS, I can't wait to see Warwick Davis as Marvin. Does anyone know if he is
doing the voice as well? It should be something to look forward too,
providing that I can keep myself from thinking "I want me gold" every time
he appears on screen.
Puck (onstage): I am that merry wanderer of the night!
Peaseblossom (in audience): I am that merry wanderer of the night, indeed!
"I am that giggling-dangerous-totally-bloody-psychotic-menance-to-life and
limb, more like."
