The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - The Movie!

Hitchhiker's Fillum LogoI've just spent a lunchtime in openmouthed perplexity... I had no idea that they had been working on a film version of the great Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy!

I discovered the trailer (and a rather fine internet-only alternative one on the UnderGround Online website), and, although it was difficult to put mental images of Simon Jones and Geoffrey McGiven aside, I could feel a degree of familiarity.

For a short while, I was a bit concerned about the Hollywood treatment of such a fine institution, but the directors have a fine pedigree - they were, for example, responsible for the amazing "Right Here Right Now" video by Fatboy Slim.

In fact, their official website has a very impressive collection of typically British surrealism in video form - check out their cinema for half-an-hour's free entertainment (at least!)

I really can't wait to see the film, now... anyone want to come along?
