|1/16/04: I've screen-capped the trailer (122 images) because it's one of those where the really interesting stuff is found between the quickest cuts. Feel free to make icons, desktops, what have you--email me or comment in my journal if you want to show off your work. The only thing I ask is that you please don't hotlink the pictures--for the simple reason that they're on a different, free account server, and all you'll do is use up the bandwidth and end up with little X's instead of pictures. If you get to this page and that's happened here, just come back in about an hour or so when access will be restored.
