We’re all watching The Watchmen

Yowzers! I think it’s safe to say that Zack Snyder at least partially nailed it. He held nothing back in this trailer and it looks exactly like I’d want it to. Salient point: he even made Billy Corgan seem cool again, which, given his last few albums, almost felt impossible. The song used was actually “The Beginning is the End is Beginning” from the Batman and Robin soundtrack. Yup, that shitty George Clooney Batman movie. Much better used here.

Also, I’m a bit surprised that they showed Dr. Manhattan and featured him prominently as he’s the only character with super powers, but again he looks fantastic and that was always thought to be the most difficult thing to accomplish.

Also: EW has The Watchmen on their cover this week and they have a few new photos and an decent article about the movie. By the by it comes out on March 6, 2009.
