    DON-T PANIC! You are about to join the most ordinary man in the world on a most extraordinary space adventure across the universe to the furthest edges of irreverent sci-fi comedy in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. So grab a good towel, stick your thumb out at the stars and get ready for a mind-boggling ride of cosmically funny proportions. Twenty years in the making, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy brings the story that became beloved by millions -- and a part of the world-s pop cultural zeitgeist -- at long last to the movie screen. Mix-mastering science fiction, comedy, adventure and philosophy into one original entertainment experience, acclaimed author and Renaissance man Douglas Adams- novel was always considered ahead of its time. But now a new day has dawned on the story with this motion picture version that Douglas was intimately involved in creating prior to his tragic early death of a heart attack. It all begins with Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman), a typical guy having a very bad day. Arthur-s house is about to be bulldozed, his best friend turns out to be an alien and, to top things off, it appears that Planet Earth will be demolished in mere seconds to make way for a hyperspace freeway. Arthur-s only chance for survival: hitch a quick ride on a passing spacecraft, with the help of his best friend Ford Prefect (Mos Def). Jetting off into the complete unknown, Arthur makes some major, mostly harmless, discoveries about the true nature of the universe. He finds that a towel is the most massively useful thing a person can carry. He uncovers the precise meaning of life. And he learns that the answers to everything anyone ever wanted to know -- and plenty that no one in his right mind could possibly have expected -- are all to be found in one fantastically entertaining electronic book: The Hitchhiker-s Guide to the Galaxy. That-s right. There-s a guide to this crazy cosmos of ours -- or at least that-s the way Douglas Adams imagined it, and nothing hmoreless

    Douglas Adams's long-awaited film version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, based on his five-book series, is a funny, wacky, highly creative ride through a bizarre universe. Martin Freeman stars as Arthur Dent, a British everyman suddenly thrust into intergalactic intrigue when the earth is destroyed by the Vogons to make room for an interspatial highway. Arthur travels the skyways with good friend Ford Prefect (Mos Def), an alien writer for an electronic encyclopedia called The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Things get downright dangerous--and absolutely hysterical--when Arthur and Ford thumb a ride with the president of the universe, two-headed Zaphod Beeblebrox (a wild and crazy Sam Rockwell); earthling Tricia McMillan (Zooey Deschanel), whom Arthur once had a thing for back in England; and a perpetually depressed robot named Marvin (voiced by Alan Rickman, played by Warwick Davis). With much of the galaxy after them, the motley crew makes its way toward a super-computer that just might be able to provide them with the ultimate question; they already know the answer.moreless
