The film has the same name as the book (A Scanner Darkly), and you can view a trailer for it here.

Looks like it's being "post-animated" in the same style as Waking Life. I'm really looking forward to this one.

That sounds like a interesting topic for a movie. Might look into it.

Thanks Atheist, looks awesome! I had no idea about this movie, I check up on all the upcoming movies, and that one slipped through my fingers. Alot of famous people are in this, and the Story lines seems cool and the animation is increddible.
I like what i saw ^^

Was there any release dates?

Yes.




This time, however, Linklater is eschewing the dreamy, existentialist look of Waking Life in favor of a more realistic approach (I bet you noticed that in the trailer). A Scanner Darkly aims to look more like a finely detailed, well-drawn comic book or graphic novel.

The storyline, according to Sabiston, is "about a house full of roommates who are all basically drug addicts, one of whom happens to be an undercover cop assigned to surveil his fellow roommates and discover where the chain of drugs is coming from."

This being a Philip K. Dick adaptation, things are a bit more complicated than that, and Keanu Reeves' Arctor character – the cop – suffers a schizophrenic mental break that causes him to begin "narcing on himself," essentially.

I can't wait! ^^

I remember the crew needed some help back in January, maybe they still do... Drop them an e-mail if you're into CG. Nothing to lose, baby, nothing to lose wink

looks good, but i wish it wasn't another Keanu Reaves flick. Woody Harelson also seems out of place, just like Ethan Hawke did in Waking Life(worst part of the movie!)

Wow. Looks kind of interesting. The animation looks more similar to Waking Life than Polar Express in my opinion. Although I have only seen the small trailers on television for Polar Express.

Okie dokie, I saw a new movie and surprised me alot. I liked it alot and i actually want to buy it and make it apart of my collection yes
(Brace Yourself)

The Incredibles! I love it, it was a great story, animation, idea, and it wasnt just for the child audience. If it was, I need to grow up, but i really didnt feel that kiddy feeling to the movie. It was real and alive, it was cool. Like when i used to watch cartoons or movies such like this one they never used the word kill in the movie or show, they would always say destroy or i will send you to oblivion words like this. The Incredibles had no problem dealing with the idea of death, and thats probally why i liked it. Plus the whole super Hero idea on top of everything and the little jokes in between. Good movie I suggest to the general Audience, Disney supported another good one wink

Other than that, I saw Shawn of the dead, Great Movie wink . It had alot of obvious jokes and that dry humor, but it had alot of good moments and funny scenes. Its like Dawn of the dead meets Monty Python crossbreed of Offiespace. I thinks thats a good analogy, my friend rented it, so that's my excuse. I liked it so dont get me wrong, I just dont think its worth the $$$ for the collection Seen any of these movies???

I've been waiting for the movie for ages. Waking Life is my all-time favorite movie and Philip K. Dick is my all-time favorite author. What makes this even more exciting is that it looks to be the first faithful adaptation of a Philip K. Dick book (it won't be an action movie) largely due to nearly everyone working on it is a fan of his.

I notice myself,that alot of my dvd's are from the same author, i like the ideas of his stories and how you cant really predict whats going to happen next. But i also notice that most of the movies i have from Philip K. Dick are all action. I never read any of his books sadblauw

Looks great but as other people have said I'm pissed about Reeves being in there... Man, the way he says "Two hemispheres in my brain" in the trailer makes me want to take a folding chair to his head.
