Watch This: First Official Trailer for The Diary of a Wimpy Kid
When Rotten Tomatoes handed out their Golden Tomatoes for the best reviewed movies of the 2009, it was sad to see that the highest ranked movie for kids (that wasn't animated) was Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are at 73% with the pathetic Hotel for Dogs behind with a measly 46%. It's clear that kids & families alike are in dire need of some quality entertainment in the live action arena. So I'm pleased to present the first trailer (and poster) for the upcoming comedy adaptation The Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a children's graphic novel by Jeff Kinney following the travails of wise-cracking middle school student Greg Heffley.

Live-action adaptation of Jeff Kinney's illustrated novel about a wise-cracking junior high school student.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid is directed by former animation director Thor Freudenthal of a few older short films and Hotel for Dogs previously. The screenplay was co-written by Jackie Filgo & Jeff Filgo ("That '70s Show") and Jeff Judah & Gabe Sachs ("90210"). The film is based on the children's graphic novel by Jeff Kinney of the same name. This was produced by Fox 2000 and is being distributed by 20th Century Fox. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid will hit theaters on April 2nd this spring. So anyone interested in seeing this?
