    Went to the 11:30 showing, theater was packed. I was very entertained and the audience was as animated as any I have seen in some time. Congrats Warren.
    @StefanJ I agree, OCEAN would be excellent.

    Considering the college here is on break, and therefore half the population is gone off to visit their families, the theater had a pretty decent crowd here, I think. It helps that the film wasn't rated R.
    I enjoyed it quite a lot. It wasn't really RED, but it was fun anyway.

    Let's hope some of your first-rate stuff gets optioned, like Nextwave.

    I don't own NEXTWAVE, and therefore wouldn't see a penny.

    I'd enjoy a proper adaptation of Lazarus Churchyard. Like, BBC.

    And a Crooked Little Vein movie. Richard Kelly seems like a nice man, and his Darko Entertainment could certainly pull it off.

    I saw the 7:45 showing in Orono, Maine tonight. There were only 5-6 seats left. Everyone in the theater was having a really good time (myself included). Lots of laughing. Well done, and I'll be picking it up on Blu-Ray when it hits stores.

    I'll probably see it again, either tomorrow or next weekend. I am sure that my additional contribution will catapult this film to #1.

    one step closer to an orbiting death laser under sole command of Warren Ellis

    Congrats, Warren! I'm hoping to contribute to the figures later tonight.

    Of course, you do know that you have to buy a pony for EVERY girl that's ever called you "Daddy" now.

    Now where is this TV show you've threatened America with for some time now?

    They're even sending it in the cinema of Hamar, where I am from and everyone is everyone's cousin. I haven't seen it yet because it premiers in Norway on the 5th, but hey, congrats!

    Congrats Mr Ellis.
    A well deserved victory.

    I loved the movie- such a great cast.
    Helen Mirren whoopin some ass and Malkovich Malkovich had me chucklin all the way through.

    I do a pretty good Richard Dreyfuss impression [i think] and now I have a new movie to quote. Woohoo!

    Good to hear it's not a flop. From what I saw at Comic Con I did not think it would be, but there is always that chance I guess. Still have to do my part and go see it.

    Mayhap other good comic book adaptations will follow.

    But Hollywood never learns so I doubt it.

    Good that it didnt flop. I also would like to see more ellis' work on screen, but hopefully faithfully adapted? Even if I cannot really see big budget movies with his kind of humour and dialogues.

    I still think that Ellis work/John carpenter direction might be an awesome mix, always seen an awful lot of similitudes between their characters and sense of humour (I wanted to ask about that in a post, but didn't want to create more spam in the forum!)

    And apart that good for the host of the place, I like it also not being a flop for bruce willis ( I do like him quite a lot and cop out was a miserable flop and the surrogates didnt help either)

    I'd fucking love to see Switchblade Honey get done, it's mainstream enough.

    We could finally see it as it shoul dbe made, Ray Winstone at the helm of the SS Enterprise.

    Do eeeeeeit!

    I heard Richard Dreyfus gets beaten up in one scene. I am in favor of this, as I mislike Richard Dreyfus and would like to see him being beaten up. Even if it's fictional, you can't go wrong beating up Richard Dreyfus.
