Who Watches the Watchmen... Trailer

A trailer for next year's Watchmen movie just went up. It's good. It's REAL GOOD!

I've been spreading the graphic novel around the office, addicting more and more people. When Brad, who just finished reading it for the first time, saw the trailer his comment was, "I don’t know if I have ever had such a high pixels to smile ratio."

I am worried that we are getting our expectations up too high, but personally, I just can't help it.

The old Watchmen movie site now has a fancy, animated 'real site' front end. The old site with the ongoing video journals is listed as the "Production Diary" under the menu. The fourth one, talking to Dave Gibbons, just went up last week.

'Watchmen': An Exclusive First Look - Entertainment Weekly article that has some good stuff on the upcoming movie including some tidbits about what removed and added from the original story.

EXCLUSIVE: Zack Snyder Reveals Secrets In ‘Watchmen’ Trailer - MTV Movies Blog interview with Zach Snyder about Watchmen.

Watchmen Motion Comic! - Warner Premiere’s Motion Comics were just announced. There will be 12 Watchmen episodes, one for each comic issue. Not really sure about the pricing thing, the text in the article implies they are available on Entertainment Weekly's website for free now and then you can buy them from iTunes in August. But I downloaded the first episode for free from iTunes yesterday.

Here is a review of the Motion Comic which pretty much echoes my thoughts on it.
