The new trailer for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is mostly reassuring. It looks like the picture might display an actual sense of whimsy. And more significantly, you get a taste of Alan Rickman performing the voice of Marvin the Paranoid Android. So that's good. And casting Sam Rockwell as Zaphod Beeblebrox makes up for giving him only one head.

Also, the trailer is kind of a meta-trailer, which makes me happy. It's not quite as cleverly meta as the classic Comedian trailer, but it's close.

Update: Erikred observes that Zaphod does have a second head, and points to a better copy of the trailer as well.
