Collect digital HHGTTG trading cards!

Disney added a new section to the official US site... Basically, it's your chance to collect digital trading cards. You acquire these cards by using tokens. You acquire the tokens by visiting the site and doing various things, such as playing "Design-a-planet", etc.

Registration is required, but it's free. I'm having a ball. :)

I just started team Magrathea 89... Join this team and we'll win for sure.

Length of Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie

For some reason, I have had a ton of incoming traffic from Google from people searching for the length of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie.

For those of you looking for that information, the length of the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy movie is 110 minutes (US), and according to the New Zealand Herald 109 minutes in NZ. This may mean that there are different cuts for different locations, but more likely, it's just a typo from one of the sources.

While we're on the subject, here's some other stats.

Martin Freeman, Sam Rockwell, Zooey Deschanel, Mos Def, John Malkovich, Bill Nighy

Garth Jennings

PG (for thematic events, action, and mild language)

Australia: PG
Canada: G (British Columbia/Quebec)
Canada: PG (Alberta/Manitoba/Nova Scotia/Ontario)
Ireland: 12A

109 mins

New Zealand Hearld reviews movie

The New Zealand Herald has released their review of the movie, giving it a so-so rating.

The reviewer describes Sam Rockwell as a "cut-rate Jim Carrey"... This probably wasn't intended as a compliment, but if his assessment is true, then I think we Americans are really gonna love it!
