i am. but i live out in the middle of freaking nowhere so the movie theater might not show it. we were lucky to get Ice Age 2. they didnt show United 93, so i think i'll have to drive 30 miles to the next theater to see it. but i am seeing it opening day, come hell or high water.

anyone else?

I'm so excited about it too! It must be an awesome movie to get Tom Hanks to do his hair like that. :-P just playing..

Yeah, finally a GOOD movie will be coming out...something worth seeing, and intresting at that...


I liked Brokeback Mountain, that was my favorite movie this past year...no more horrible remakes, and off-beat comedies...lol


Loving the pass, cherishing the present, and looking forward to the future

I am quite excited! It should be a good flick.

I already finished the book and now I'm reading it for the second time. I'm impatient to see the movie on this weekend!

I think Tom Hanks isn't "Harrison Ford in Harris tweed" but he's okay as far as I've seen the trailer and many photos from the movie...

I hope they are able to keep the European feel, and not make it another hollywood-like movie. But the book itself wasn't really that good in my opinion. It should make a nice movie though, so i'll be there this weekend (or next).

Usually people say books are better than the movies, so this is odd. I was going to read the book first then catch the movie on DVD. I hate going to movie theatres anymore. There is always some annoying child kicking the back of my seat or giggling. I'm not paying $9 for a ticekt, $4 for a drink, and $5 for candy to see it in the theatre.

I still think I'll read the book first. I might pick it up today. Neik, let me know how you like it when you start reading it.

We're planning to go to the 10:30 showing. Get a baby sitter, go out to dinner, then get into the theater when all the kiddies are tucked into bed. Now THAT's the way to enjoy a movie!

I have to admit that Thomas Quinn has a point...there is an overload of information in a lot of it, but I still managed to read the book in five days over Christmas break last year, and I loved it. They actually started filming that movie when I was in France, so I've seen most of the places mentioned in the book and are featured in the movie (Saint Sulpice, The Louvre, etc.), so I can't wait to go and say, "I've been there in real life!".
Me and some friends are going to see it next week. Our theatre has already stated selling tickets for it this weekend, so we are sure it's going to sell out, so we're waiting until Wednesday of next week.
I just hope I don't run into Christian protesters outside of the theatre....They are making the movie bigger by screaming about how "untrue" it is. Everyone knows that, except for the idiots, it says right on the front cover it's a novel, and therefore a work of fiction. But Brown does make everything sound convincing. Judaism survived "Passion of the Christ", Christianity will survive "The DaVinci Code".
