I really want to see this as well. I've been meaning to read the book because I've heard brilliant reviews on it. The movie looks fantastic, seeing asthough Peter Jackson is directing it, it should be.

I have read the book, it is brilliant!:tmb: So I will certainly be going to see it!:D

I think I read the book. Even if I haven't, this looks very interesting. I'd love to see it. Wish the UK didn't have to wait so long after the US release though. Good cast too.

Thanks for sharing, I haven't see this advertised anywhere else.

I plan on reading the book now.:) I am going on a little book shopping this weekend so I'll see if I can find it.

The story seems amazing, the visual look of the film is indredible from what is seen in the trailer so I can't wait to see this. The actors they choose are also what make me want to see this.

Sounds like an interesting plot and Susan Sarandon will allways have a plus in my heart because of The rocky horror show, Stepmom and Thelma & Louise!

This thread gave me deja vu. Someone is going to shout at me. I'll reply "LOL".


I'm seeing this. The only thing I don't like is the title! It doesn't sound right.

I've never got round to reading the book, but I'd definitely see this! :)

I really should care more about this film, particularly for how I regard Peter Jackson, but.. every synopsis I've read, it just doesn't appeal to me at all.

23-08-09, 19:57
I'm definitely looking forward to this. :tmb:
Haven't read the book though.
