Right. As much as I hate to use this buzzword, Watchmen is shaping up to be a very "post-modern" comic book movie, very aware of the conventions of its genre and the genre's place in popular culture.

And you all know how little I care about stupid minutia like costume or hair color when it comes to film adaptation. As long as it works with the movie.

I see what you mean. I just hope it's not another League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

My favorite "post-modern" comic movie is Mystery Men. Its able to satirize the genre and deliver some pretty good comedy - it was basically everything Hancock tried to be, but wasn't. That, and Pee-Wee Herman farts in Geoffrey Rush's face.

Mystery Men was a bit of a mess, but definitely had moments that cracked me up.

You must lash out with every limb, like the octopus who plays the drums.

I did not watch the trailer online.


I saw it for the first time on the big screen as a preview before TDK


it got my attention

I also heard some film reviewers on NPR
they were concerned that it can not be as good as the book


should I go out and get the book (graphic novel? )

before I see this?

I'll be reading the novel some time this year. But I think this trailer is just fucking cool enough to get a shit load of people into theaters without any prior knowledge of the source material.

I'm severely impressed.

Having not read the graphic novel, I am also very impressed by that trailer. I will be looking forward to this and I'll try and read it at some point, too.

And is that Billy 'Golden God' Crudup in there???

Certainly is.

Billy Crudup as a naked blue demi-God free of the bounds of natural physics that chills out in a giant swirling glass palace on Mars?

I'm so there.

Watchmen Movie News, Watchmen Comic News, Trailers, Videos, Plot Summary and More - WatchmenComicMovie.com

Check out the forum for any questions.

Oh, and if you have any friends who can't follow a movie which isn't told in a linear fashion, or ask questions like "I thought he was dead", don't take them to the movie, they won't get it and may ruin it for you.

Apparently, you folks in the U.S can download a webisode based on the comic from Itunes. The first one is up now and free. Future ones will cost $1.99. Canucks can't get it yet.

Homemade vid using comic images to match the trailer.
