Writing about web page http://www.amazon.com/The official trailer for the Hitchhiker's Guide movie has now been released – on the home page of Amazon, funnily enough. It looks absolutely spot on; the characters, the styling of the effects, the Guide itself – and especially Marvin, who cracks me up in the trailer despite not saying a word. And although I don't remember the spades gag that pops up at the end of the trailer from the books, it's absolutely in the spirit of Douglas Adams it seems to me.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie play husband and wife who are both assassins, but neither knows it of the other until they get assignments to kill… each other.
This is one of the darker horses of next summer's movies; the trailer has plenty of big guns and explosions, but it's hard to read what the tone of the film's going to be. Some bits play like light comedy, others seem darker; once the lead characters work out what's going on, they seem to be trying to zap each other with relish, which suggests that the tone could be quite black. If it's another War of the Roses or Prizzi's Honour then it could be great. And Doug Liman hasn't made a bad film yet; Go, Swingers and Bourne Identity have all been cool. So… maybe.

The Incredibles is the new computer-generated cartoon from Pixar, opening in November. The trailer looks fantastic; witty in the style of the first Toy Story, a knowing spoof on superhero lore, and of course those gorgeous, trademark Pixar visuals, all shiny costumes and lustrous surfaces.
Watch for the "Where's my suit?" gag near the end; is it me, or is that Samuel L Jackson? Jackson and Pixar – together at last!
