Watchmen Trailer Online
 
I think I'm in love!

Still not sure about Ozymandias' costume, but the rest is AMAZING!

While I'm not so hot on the "modernized" costumes, this thing looks to kick serious boots.

I'm honestly not trying to bash the film prematurely, but it looks "unreal" and not in a good way; I hate the green screen vibe. The Mars seen doesn't wow as it looks obviously CGI. Plus, I can't stand "slow mo" jump kick shots. It's a cinematic cliche of the highest order.

Just to add, on the good side it looks pretty damn faithful to the original graphic novel, at least thus far, and I'll give them props for that.

**drools at the mouth**

Wow, think I just came in my pants. As a fan of the book, I have to say this looks fan-frakking-tastic

Can't get the links to work now. Were we not supposed to see that?

I think they pulled the trailer now...I'm getting an Error 404 on the page.

I think it only went down because the server was getting hammered to hell.

Dan and the doctor (especially) look better than they did in the book. Hope it all turns out great.

edit: I heart Rorschach

I will say that Ozymandis still looks fanastic! It seems like Zach Snyder has another hit on his hands next summer.

It's all over Youtube, so look on there if the above links won't work for you


Looks like 2009 will be another great year for BIG movie releases. With Star Trek, Wolverine, Transformers 2, Terminator 4... but after watching this trailer I'm easily most looking forward to this

How close to the source material are they staying? Has Alan Moore disowned this movie like he did with his other works?

Here's a YouTube link, but watch it while you still can because they're pulling them.

That's strange. I guess it was actually taken down because it was posted early :confused:

There was an earlier script (which they dropped) that was really really out there. From what I've read, this is going to be pretty faithful to the book.

Moore doesn't believe that Watchmen is filmable, and I'd be inclined to agree with him. He's gone so far as to arrange that all royalties owed to him instead go to Dave Gibbons, the artist, and that his name not be officially associated with the film.

I think he just wants nothing to do with Hollywood anymore, so has had no imput whatsoever on this, or will prob ever watch it however it turns out.
And like V For Vendetta, his name won't be on the poster or credits
