Billy's movie, "Master and Commander" is coming out and [livejournal.com profile] rynalwyn has delicious Billy pictures. He looks a bit more rough and tough than as Pippin. Is good because the Barrett Bonden of the books is a big manly kind of guy!

Someone at [livejournal.com profile] bboyd posted a link to the movie trailer.

And AICN has an anonymous rave report from someone who saw an early sneak preview.

book series vs.movie )

Conclusion: this movie is more like fanfiction than an adaptation of a book. They took the characters and some of the situations and created a new story. Beyond merely juicing up the action, they seem to be altering the entire dynamic of the characters and many of the most important parts of the stories. And that bugs me.
