Look near the beginning how the protagonist comes to the conclusion he's a "nobody"...

I just saw this movie. The main character uses Google at the beginning and end of the movie to see that he is a "nobody". The special effects were pretty different for this film compared to other action movies I've seen lately.

I just came back from the movie!!! Google was referenced at the beginning and at the end of the movie, both returning no results for "Wesley Gibson". google.com/search?q=Wesley+Gib ...

I think he said something along the line of "What the F have you done lately?" at the end of the movie. I lol'd. :)

Seriously, why does Apple stick with Quicktime when the whole world uses popular formats – I haven't installed it and I won't.

+1 with Ash, I can't watch the trailer.

BTW, When I enter my real name in Google, it returns no result too :)

I use VLC to play Quicktime file and you can even stream videos from the web – videolan.org/vlc/ .

Oh come on, enter any "normal" name and you are garunteed a result, it might not be about you but there's no way you wouldn't get a result.

And as that has the drop-down menu, that bit that says "Wesley Gibson – No Results" is faked any way...... I realy shouldn't notice these things :-)

Popularity dosn't mean it's good: The Crazy Frog got to #1 in the UK singles charts, Hitler won an election, Amy Winehouse has had a #1 Album, and lots of people use Windows :-P

Sorry hadn't read your comment, must mean your not normal :P either that or you used quotation marks and included your middle name(s)

My full name in quotation marks returns 2 results (neither are to do with me)
