I just checked out the cast on IMDb. Harrison Ford is playing Colonel Graff. Colonel Graff's aide is played by...Han Soto? So close...

I read some of the AMA, sounds like it's going to be real good. Also liking the looks of the trailer.

Don't forget the novelization of the movie based on the book. That's some real ouroboros shit right there.

And the Monty Pythonesque Blu-ray special scenes dubbed in Japanese with English subtitles taken from the book.

Saw it last night. It's entertaining. The overall story is mostly intact. As expected, though, much was changed, glossed over or left out entirely. Still...it was a worthwhile experience, I think.
