I have to admit, I am very excited about the Watchmen movie, scheduled for release some time in 2009. The graphic novel is amazing, if not slightly strange (the ending wtf?), and the movie looks like it is really going to live up to my exceedingly high expectations. Not that I’m getting swept away in a flood of hype! Watchmen is directed by the “visionary” (I love how they talk them selves up haha) director of 300 – Zack Snyder, and it looks like they’re using some pretty cool film techniques to make the movie feel like a comic. Here’s my favorite trailer, the combination of awesome Smashing Pumpkins music and tantalizing footage makes it delectable viewing:
Unfortunately it appears the song isn’t actually going to appear in the final movie -_- The guy over at phojus.me seems to have a lot of good posts on the movie and also there is a treasure trove of behind the scenes videos and teasers over at the Watchmen blog as well, which I highly recommend checking out if you are at all interested. I can’t wait ^_^
One thought on “Watchmen”
I’m not big into graphic novels but I usually love the movies that come out of them (re: V is for Vendetta). I’m looking forward to seeing this movie on the big screen…it looks hugely promising.
