‘Watchmen’ Teaser Trailer

22 07 2008

Sorry I’ve been gone for a while, but here’s something that might cheer you up. The new trailer for Watchmen was released with The Dark Knight on Friday and, being a huge fan of the graphic novel, the trailer looks amazing. Everything literally looks ripped from the pages and plastered onto the screen. March is going to be an exciting month.


Fourth ‘Watchmen’ Set Video

6 07 2008

Over the weekend, Zack Snyder released a fourth behind-the-scenes Watchmen video just in time for the 4th of July. This video features artist Dave Gibbons and focuses primarily on a few of the different sets being used in the movie, including Hollis Mason’s apartment. The attention to detail is simply staggering. It’s like the comic is literally springing to life. I’ve got to hand it to the art directors for this film. Everything I’ve seen so far has looked incredible.┬áIf you notice, around the 2 minutes, 20 seconds, you even get to see a little bit of┬áRorschach (friggin’ sweet!).

Unfortunately there’s no way to embed the video, so you can check out the video at UGO.com.

The First ‘Watchmen’ Trailer To Be Shown With ‘The Dark Knight’

2 07 2008

According to Collider.com, the very first trailer for the much anticipated Watchmen movie will precede The Dark Knight when it opens on July 18th. Director Zack Snyder said that “we will be getting our first look at what is sure to be an epic superhero movie.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve been psyched about Watchmen being made into a movie since I read the graphic novel a few years ago. All I’ve seen so far are a few stills and some promotional stuff, but it all looks damn near perfect. I’m sure the trailer will be just as incredible if not more so.

As of right now, Zack Snyder has mentioned that the film itself is currently 3 hours long and is in the process of being cut down. Unfortunately, this is a decision not made by Snyder, but by the studio. I understand that, like any adapted work, some material needs to be omitted for one reason or another. As most fans already know, the story within a story, “Tales of the Black Freighter,” which serves as a parallel to the main story, will not be included in the actual film, but will be released as an animated, straight-to-DVD feature, starring Gerard Butler, on March 11, 2009.

I just hope that the final cut of the film stays true to the source material. If not, I’m sure there will be an Unrated Extended Director’s Cut with all that extra stuff when it comes out on DVD.

The film’s release date is March 6, 2009.
