    This movie will definitely get an Academy Nomination. Check out the trailer.

    Watched the trailer at the Premiere of Quantum of Solace.

    Hell, it looked insane.

    I feel really bad for whomever gave birth to him.

    Looks like it will be a good movie though :D

    Why would you feel sorry for his parents?

    I just watched that trailer and saw that it was a new one. The first one I saw didn't show him as an "old" baby, and since the story revolves around a man who goes from elderly to young backwards...let me put it this way think of having a baby. Now think of having an adult through childbirth.

    I have been looking forward to it ever since I learned about it. Will probably end up seeing it on Christmas.

    Sure.

    I still don't understand why you would empathize with the parents over the son.

    Always did.

    That doesn't change the fact that my empathy is with the son and not the mother, which is where it really should be.

    Whatever.

    saw this movie .. GREAT movie, reminds me ALOT of forrest gump
    the ending is so sad :( .. has some great scenes in it ,

    and btw, why is everyone thinking that he is born as a big old guy xD ?
    he is the size of a baby but he is old, no harm at all for the mother :P
