Looks really fascinating, like a weird mash-up of Tintin, Where the Wild Things Are and The Black Stallion. I'm there.

hmm

I'll probably get bashed for this, but.. when I was watching, I just couldn't stop noticing the green screen background composting behind the actors all the time and it just kinda took me out of the experience..

the book was great, though..

Can't wait for this! Reading the book again currently and the 3D trailer in theaters look great. It is a flight of fancy so I'm glad it's kinda hyper-real.

Saw the 3d trailer in front of Prometheus. Honestly, I thought it looked pretty dumb, 2 min of nothing happening on a boat.

I keep hearing how great the book is though.

Havent liked the Ang Lee movies I have seen.
I rarely fast forward through a movie but I ended up doing that with Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
And the Hulk isnt on my top ten for the year.

Ang Lee looks like he brought his A-Game to this show.

Looks like it's going to be a very good movie.

Ang Lee is one of the best directors out there when it comes to subtext and human drama. I can see why they hired him to direct this adaptation. I can't wait to see this. I just started reading the book not long ago, but have been too busy to continue with any kind of sustained reading recently. Now I wonder if I should read the book or watch the movie first.

Too much visual FX for my taste. The boy also look too old for my taste. The book was fantastic and I would have appreciated a more "realistic" feeling to the cinematography. Now it look more like an Aladdin movie!

Still, hopefully, the movie will be great anyway.

It looks like a good story with some great effects, and not the usual ton of effects with no story. I look forward to seeing this one.

Finish it! It's an absolutely wonderful book. I'm excited about the film purely because it's a fantastic story and if only half of it makes it onto the screen it should be a winner.

FYI it was all Bluescreens, no Greenscreen work at all.
