New Watchmen Trailer Provides More Info

OK, I'll admit it: When I first saw the teaser trailer for Watchmen, I didn't really get it. I liked the look of it and I think the use of that Smashing Pumpkins song "The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning" is inspired. But I didn't understand what was going on, unfamiliar as I was with the source material. Well, I decided to become familiar with the source material and now that I have, I'm a wee bit obsessed. To find out why and to see a new trailer,


Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's comic book series Watchmen has received overwhelming critical praise ever since publication in 1986 and 1987. In 2005 it was included on Time's list of "the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present," and Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof has called it ''the greatest piece of popular fiction ever produced." Unlike other superhero franchises (Superman, Spider-Man, Batman, etc.), Watchmen was deemed "unfilmmable," with director Terry Gilliam stating that "by reducing it to a two or two-and-a-half hour film, it seemed to me to take away the essence of what Watchmen is about.”

Well, in this superhero-happy era of filmmaking, Watchmen was going to be made, and admirably enough (at least in my opinion) 300 director Zack Snyder took on the project mostly because he loves the work and he worried that the wrong director wouldn't do it justice.

Now I'm almost done reading Watchmen and while I wasn't sure I'd like it, I have to say, I'm totally mesmerized. I think I see what all the fuss is about. And yesterday I (somewhat) patiently waited until 5:00 p.m. my time to catch the latest trailer for the film, which opens March 6, 2009. I've rarely been this intrigued by something I won't see for another four months. The new trailer provides more information on the story, so check it out below and tell me what you think.

I didn't understand what the first trailer was about (but that Smashing Pumpkins song was great), so I'm glad that this one offers more detail even though I'm not THAT excited to see this movie. It looks intriguing enough, but I still don't get it.

Wow, that just looks awesome. Actually, the trailer gives a pretty good look at what the story is actually about (as good as you can in a two-minute-clip)... I feared that people who didn't know the graphic novel wouldn't want to go see the movie (since it's not common knowledge what the story is about unlike with some more mainstream superheroes) but I think a trailer like this can get ANYBODY excited.

I liked the first trailer better, left more of an impact. Regardless, unbelievably excited for this movie.

Hmmm, it still doesn't make that much sense to me. But I am definitely intrigued. It's one that I'll probably go see.

huh - i don't know where i've been that i didn't know about this one but i do know that there's quite the following for the content so i think that there's something to be said about it. i don't typically go see movies like this, but i guess anything could happen.
