    The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    In case you hadn't heard, THGTTG is coming out in theaters April 29. Its being released by Touchstone (aka Disney).

    Here's a link to the official movie site.

    I think its going to be good. Any thoughts? On the movie, books, tv show, radio show or Douglas Adams? And does anybody know the question to the ultimate answer of 42? Personally I love the books. Right now I'm halfway through "Life, the Universe and Everything"


    Oh, and figment1986, 6*9=54. I thought the answer to the ultimate question was 42.

    They redid the movie site. It was different a day or two ago. I'm not sure I like the new site as much.

    I'll go see it, but I really don't trust Hollywood to capture the humor of the book. It'll probably be full of stupid visual or slapstick, to better suit its ignorant American audience.

    Well, the cast is largely british, and with such a huge following, I doubt they will try and depart from the book too much- Disney usually does a decent job of bringing books to the screen.

    As fo the release date, I should know this since I work for BV, but I believe it comes out a few weeks apart from Star Wars, I am sure they are styaing away from it since they have such similar audiences.

    Didn't Douglas Adams have a large hand in writing the screenplay before his passing?

    I think it looks like it's going to be pretty good. I'm especially loving Alan Rickman as Marvin. Alan Rickman makes any movie he's in more awesome!

    6*9=42 in base 13. Let me (try to) explain:

    In base-10, the "5" in the number "54" has a base-10 value of "5 multiplied by ten", or 50, thus "6*9=54" is true in base 10. However, the number "4" in the base-13 number "42" has a value of "4 multiplied by 13", or 52. Thusly "42" in base-13 has a base-10 value of 52+2, or 54.

    I've never read HGTTG, I had a friend in HIgh School that swore by it, but given my current line of work, the idea of destroying the earth to make way for a hyperspace bypass seems quite appealing .......

    After reading the books, watching the BBC series, playing the text based game....I'm prepared to be disappointed with the movie - Zaphod with only one head? I mean Really!! Of course, I'm a book snob, I'm the one who almost Always says "It was better in the book!"

    Will I see it? Of course! How Else can I compare it to the book!

    It's a "bypass" not an "expressway" and (as mentioned above) TWO, count them TWO heads.
