Whatever you do, don't panic! The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is arriving in theaters on April 29, 2005 and it's going to take you places you couldn't possibly have imagined. So get ready to settle in with a bag of buttery popcorn and blast off to the far reaches of the universe. Find out if it's going to be a bumpy ride!

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - It's the End of the World As We Know It

For anyone who hasn't read Douglas Adams' book, which the movie is based on, you might be in for a bit of a shock with this flick. It's a sci-fi adventure/comedy that introduces you to new planets, new species and has the Earth blown-up within the first few minutes of the movie. The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Galaxy is a book that contains absolutely every piece of information you could possibly need to know about the universe - and it comes in very handy for earthling Aurthur Dent, who is new to the whole traveling in space thing.

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Out of This World

It may not have the special effects of The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars, but The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is pretty far out. There's the two-headed President of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox, giant, slimy Volgons who love to torture their victims with poetry and computers who know the answer to life. This flick has so much going on, there's no way you're not going to be completely mesmerized by it. How often do you get to travel to space, anyway?

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Interstellar Expectations

For fans of the book, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy definitely won't fulfill all your expectations - but did you really think they were going to pack all the details of an 800 page book into two hours? The way things end have left things wide open for a sequel, however.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Bottom Line

Sci-fi fans will most definitely want to check this movie out! It's packed full of [kwlink]astronomy[/kwlink], life lessons, robots and aliens. It's also incredibly funny. Not guy-gets-kicked-in-the-balls funny, but the intellectually witty kind of funny. So skip watching your fave Hilary Duff DVD again and go see The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - DVD Features

It took more than 20 years to complete this movie project and now it's available on DVD to add to your movie collection. There are some cool features on this disc which include deleted scenes, a making of the movie featurette, interactive games and even a sing along! Grab a copy of this flick - it's destined to be a classic.
