I'm going on record now to say that if Watchmen can live up to the graphic novel (and based on the recent preview screenings in L.A. and Portland, and Kevin Smith's reaction, it just might), then this will be one of the most groundbreaking and massive hits of 2009.
Here is the latest, cool teaser poster, and below is a link to the new Watchmen preview from Spike TV's Scream Awards.
I'm sure a lot of those unfamiliar with the acclaimed comic book series will wait to read it after they've seen Zack Snyder's movie, but for those who are itching right now to know what the hype's all about -- and don't mind heady ideas mixed in with their entertainment -- check out writer Alan Moore's and artist David Gibbon's creation pronto. I just finished reading it for the first time, and was pretty much blown away.
I don't know how they'll fit all of the book's weighty philosophical conversations and in-depth superhero characterizations into a 2.5 hour film, but I'm beyond excited to find out.
