This edition of the book will hit stores in July. The movie premieres in NY and LA on August 16 with more cities and dates TBA. A British release is scheduled for September 27. Tallyho!

Nice! :thumb:

I like their current advertising campaign which has been found in the travel section of the NY Times and the new website. Looking forward to seeing the complete site. :)

But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

:nod: That's such a nice screenshot. :heart: Really looking forward to seeing the film when it's out over here!

Thanks 4ever for giving me the heads up that the YouTube link has been taken down. Just replaced it with another link. :)

1 more...just imagine when we have the film, lol! It's been too long since I've had something to screencap!

This one makes me wonder if Jemaine if off to the side singing Woo a Lady.... :P

Love the screencaps, Laura! :thumb: Haha, would love a surprise cameo of Jemaine singing 1353. :lol:

Did you catch Bret in this scene too? You're so right, we're going to be spoilt for choice for screencaps when the film's out on DVD. :D
