New 'Watchmen' Footage from Spike TV Awards

A lot of it is clips from the teaser trailer, but there's a substantial amount of new footage as well:

It looks fantastic.

It mostly looks amazing.

I fear Snyder's love affair with slo-mo. Used in moderation slo-mo can be wonderfully effective. If every other shot is slowed down, it sort of loses it's kick.

Silk Spectre's look is rather awful isn't it?

But love the Dr. M/ Laurie kiss in front the mushroom cloud, the Mars construction shot, and the last shot with the smiley button. Casting Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Comedian was sheer genius.

It all makes me very nostalgic for high school.

I didn't see Carla Gugino (Sally Jupiter) in the clips.

The little touches that you see in the comic book is all there in the trailer.

Man, I really hope that the 2 hour 45 minute cut is kept intact for the final cut.

Any update on whether the lawsuit will affect the movie's release? Because I'm really looking forward to it.

Nice. I don't care if the theatrical release gets cut down a bit, so long as it all ends up on DVD as an extended cut as Snyder says it will.

Re: New 'Watchmen' Footage from Spike TV Awards

This does look pretty awesome. And I must be the only one who wasn't bothered by the slo-mo. For one thing, it really makes the trailer stand out; and plus most of the slo-mo scenes were so damn cool they DESERVED to be slowed down.

I have to admit it IS a bit strange to see these characters suddenly jumping and gliding around like superheroes though. My impression from the comic was always that these were just normal people with a little bit of training who basically moved around like you and me. In fact for most of the comic all they do is stand around and talk.

What Snyder's done with it definitely LOOKS cool as hell, it's just a lot more stylized and "superhero-y" than I always imagined it.

Re: New 'Watchmen' Footage from Spike TV Awards

Did anyone here know who was saying "God help us all" in the trailer? It took me a second to place when the Comedian says that... the fresh scar helped.

I don't know... the individual moments make me squeee! but as a whole, it feels like the same two tics over and over... slo-mo shot, ultraviolence... slo-mo, ultraviolence... and then slo-mo violence.

I'm surprised Dreiberg's dream is still in there... what got cut, if not that?

Looks like the aging make-up on the Comedian leaves something to be desired. And Rorschach looks strangely Spiderman-esque in some shots.

I'll be first in line, but I'm trying hard not to let my expectations run wild...
