xkcd movie (or at least a fake trailer)

Postby eboyjr » Wed Jul 14, 2010 7:55 pm UTC

xkcd is very unique and wonderful and it would be exciting to see a motion picture about the comic with all of the usual characters (black hat guy, no hat guy, dark haired girl, light haired girl, red spiders, velociraptors, cory doctorow, etc). There are so many plots that someone could thing of since xkcd has a wide variety. So here I would like to start this thread to discuss a screenplay for a new xkcd movie. (or at least a fake trailer)

I would imagine it to be a huge action/adventure about red spiders invading the world, and everyone has to save themselves or fight back.

Bam! The movie already has a title, also 95% of it's plot.

I prefer this. Carol Channing will read the alt-text. Joan Rivers would make a good zombie.

Hmm... How about If everyone else in the lab thought that Ryan and Laura were exposed to the virus when they killed patient zero, and set out to hunt them down 'kill bill' style, with the next 90 minutes being a frakking awesome fight/destruction/explosion sequence, rather than a romantic comedy. Black hat guy can commandeer a submarine to attack them with for the boss battle.
