Hitchhiker's trailer, lost and found.

Yesterday I was very excited to see the new Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trailer on amazon.com. I made a little mental note to myself: I should watch that later, when I'm not at work. Today, I tried to go back... and the trailer was *gone*. Not on the front page, not accessible via any sort of search, not on their trailers page, not linked from amazon's hitchhiker's feature page, which some helpful sites linked to... Needless to say, it's not on the movie's official web site, either. It had inexplicably vanished.

Anyway, the wailing and gnashing of teeth is over. The Daily ACK pointed me to the direct link to the raw flash file (which is what I linked to, above). Now I'm reposting that link for you, dear reader. I'm sure some contract arcana underlies this mysterious now-you-see-it-now-you-don't---I hope all the lawyers involved write their contracts better next time.

(Need I mention I'm looking forward to this movie immensely?)
