The first look at Zak Snyder’s long-awaited adaptation of Alan Mooore’s classic comic
The trailer for The Watchmen debuts today before The Dark Knight, ending two years of speculation about Zak Snyder’s (300) version of Alan Moore’s classic graphic novel and about twenty three years of hope for fans wanting to see it brought to the big screen in all its byzantine glory.
If you’re not already familiar, the story is really much too complicated to explain in a few short words, except to say it’s a VERY realistic approach to the presence of superheroes in the modern world and covers about forty years of American history while doing so. It’s not for kids, and it’s not particuarly optimistic about human nature, either. And fortunately the movie looks to be painsakingly truthful to Moore’s original vision.
So enjoy the trailer and then read our who’s who guide about The Watchmen universe’s original super-hero team.
