I don't know anything about this comic book series, other than hearing the name mentioned from time to time in passing.
However, I saw the trailer for the new movie and it looks pretty cool, I must say.
It's directed by the same guy who directed "300", which, visually, was amazing.
So, it'll be another big production that I'm looking forward to in the coming year (like "Star Trek", The Day the Earth Stood Still" and anything with Dwayne Johnson, of course).
If you haven't seen the trailer to "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (with Keanu Reeves), you may enjoy it here...
Looks like cool effects AND Kathy Bates is in it too...
