here comes the sunshine

i've been following the progress of sunshine for a while now. pretty much anything that alex garland has a hand in writing, i'll look into. after reading his books and watching the brilliant movie, 28 days later, for which he wrote the screenplay, i think it is safe to assume that garland has a pretty predictable writing style. you tend to have a cast of characters, all hell breaks loose and lots of people die at the end, but the story retains an element of optimism.

i think it is fairly safe to say that sunshine will probably follow that route. having said that, i am also looking forward (hoping really) to be surprised by garland. the director, danny boyle, has done a great job of at least making sunshine look amazing. here's the trailer:
