42 Is The Answer
A film version of Douglas Adams' comedy sci-fi book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will open on April 29, 2005. Here is a link to the movie's website. If you're interested in the trailers, you can find them here.
The BBC made a video version of the book in 1982. Needless to say, the special effects are dated, but they did a reasonable job on the script. The new film looks as if it has decent special effects. Hopefully, they do an equally decent job with the script this time.
