A good (if disturbing) book, delighted to see that Heslov has seen a way to make it into a movie.   Apart from playing host to another of McGregor's terrible accents, it appears to lack only John Goodman.  Otherwise it looks like a 9 on the Tordelmeter.

The book is superb- but I have to wait until I get home this evening before watching the trailer...

Trailer is good. Nice to see an American film poking fun at its military.

Thanks for the youtube link Goaty, the original one made me make incomprehensible choices and then took an ages to load before I gave up!

House of Usher - where is that Galactic Groats scan from? I'd swear I've never seen that before (and can you imagine how much that disturbs me?  :o)

Looks fun, and I think Jeff Bridges will steal the show.

This looks like fantastic fun. I haven't read the book yet but Jon Ronson's articles for the Grauniad are always a treat.

Didn't Jon Ronson appear in a Channel 4 series about conspiracy theories? It was very good despite the slightly mad subject matter. David Icke really does believe in blood drinking lizards apparantly. Ronson was convinced this wasn't some vehicle for Ickes alleged anti semitism.

How reassuring.

Indeed he did. His series, Crazy Rulers of the World was accompanied by a book called...I forget now.

As far as i know David Icke isnt "anti-semitic" either in the strictist definition of the term or otherwise.
