Don't Crash: Making of
Mere seconds before the Earth is to be demolished by an alien construction crew, English everyman Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman) is swept off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect (Mos Def), who is actually not human but an alien researcher penning a new edition of the essential travel tome known as "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy".
Landing aboard a spaceship from the Vogon Constructor Fleet which has just obliterated the Earth, Arthur is flung into an outer space adventure where he'll meet oddball characters like Slartibartfast, Zaphod Beeblebrox & Marvin the paranoid android, visit amazing places such as Magrathea, endure the 3rd worst poetry in the galaxy, discover mice want his brain and learn that the answer to life, the universe and everything is, well, 42...
Following incarnations as a radio series, a set of books which became known as a 'Trilogy In Five Parts' and a TV adaptation, Douglas Adams' seminal science fiction comedy blasts onto DVD as a fantastically funny film, co-written by the author himself prior to his death. The film features a galaxy of British and American stars, also including the voices of Alan Rickman as Marvin and Stephen Fry as the Guide.
