The Trailer

Hopefully they don't screw it up.

I can't get it to load right, here at work. Is it animated or live action?

It'll be live action. And Disney can't possibly do any more harm to HHGTTG than Episodes I-III have done to Star Wars.

I'm sure they will try.

I wonder what rating they will try to go for.

I never thought of Ford Prefect with an Urban flair.

This is going to be one of those disasters where a good story gets screwed up because they try to tie in pop culture. I'll bet Arthur Dent isn't from England either.

2 of the guys from Shaun of the Dead are in it, so there's some promise. But, no, the zaphod guy is from California, and so is the girl playing Trillian. Bill Nighy (elisa, it's Victor!!!) is very british and very awesome, tho.

I think Martin Freeman is the male porno stand-in from Love Actually, but not entirely sure. He might be pretty good as Arthur, he did british and clueless pretty well.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0371724/ for more info, of course.

maybe he's just voicing for a guy in a suit? Like James Earl Jones? I dunno.

I was under the impression that Stephen Moore would be voicing Marvin in the movie, but I see no evidence of that on IMDB.
