Yeah I'll be there with bells on for this one.

I forget when this movie comes out. March 18th?
But the trailer and the mood so captures the series by Frank Miller that I will be first in line(or try to be), when it does come out.

I can't open your link Juzzza, but I did see a trailer on Film 2005 a few weeks ago. Can't wait to see it. My only query is if it is a Robert Rodriguez film, and I am assuming this is the right film (black and white, comic book feel, lots of famous faces including Bruce Willis I believe?) will the script be rubbish? As he likes action more than substance from what I can tell.

Yea sorry, it wasn't a link, it was the new (at the time) complete poster (only teasers have been used so far).
It should work, but the tekkies over at comingsoon.net are good at changing image links.

Gah, they are clever, their Website generates a new link url every night so people like me can't link to the image :mad:
Here is a link anyway, you can watch the trailer from there:

Quentin Tarantino wrote the script so that might tell us something (like this movie will rule!) :) These two also teamed up on From Dusk to Dawn (Quentin's first script) which was a decent movie for two hollywood newbies. They're work since has been the stuff of legend!

Tarantino is a director one can appreciate and respect but not actually like. I have watched a lot of his films but once only, they really make my skin crawl most of the time. Still, the script is a lot better off in his capable hands. And if there is a source material other than his brain, then I'm sure it will be great.
