    For those of you who don't know, the movie is an adaption of a novel by Chuck Palahniuk, the same guy who wrote the book for Fight Club.
    The movie seems a lot lighter than the book, hopefully it won't disappoint.

    This trailer makes it look like a screwball comedy. Post the redband trailer that better conveys what the movie is about.

    Documentary on Dirk Nowitzki?

    Ba-zing!

    BTW, is that actress the high school girl Ewan McGregor's character hooks up with in Trainspotting?

    I tried reading the book years ago, but I couldn't get into it. And I loved Fight Club(except for the fact that the big twist was printed on the backcover).

    I caught the Choke trailer before Pineapple Express last week and it does look interesting. A lot funnier than I remember the novel being.

    I LOVED the book and love just about everything Palahniuk has done. Also, Radiohead did the score for this so I can't freaking wait to see it.

    It can't possibly live up to the book.

    I'll watch it with low expectations.

    I had no idea this book was being made into a movie and I when I saw the preview before Pinnaple Express I couldn't believe it. Really looking forward to it and I hope it follows the book as close as possible.
