    The trailer looks cool, but I was kind of put off that they used a Smashing Pumpkins song that was made for Batman and Robin.
  • The song won't be in the final movie (it has been reported) it was just used for the trailer.

    Yes, it does look cool. But considering so many other comic-to-film adaptions have been screwed with, I am withholding judgement.

    Alan Moore had his name taken off this one before shooting had even got underway. His royalties will go to the guy who was the artist for the original book.

    (Moore was incredibly disappointed/angry with the V for Vendetta film that he made sure his name never appeared on that either)
  • My understanding was that Moore was upset because he wrote Watchmen specifically to show off what comics could do that other mediums couldn't.
  • I probably won't see the movie. There's no way they could possibly do the original graphic novel/series any justice in a standard 2-hour Hollywood movie for general audiences.
  • I wouldn't say I'm a huge comics fan (although I have read Watchmen) but I do like movies... and a lot of the movie comic adaptions are pretty good movies in their own right, even if different from the comics.

    Heck, I'd never even heard of the character of Iron Man until the movie started being promoted.... and it was a pretty good film :)

    Go to newgrounds.com."Hello my name is Strawberry Clock.I'm king of the portal."
  • You know, it occurs to me that Rorschach's "And I'll whisper 'no'" quote is kind of out-of-place in the trailer. It makes it seem far more important/epic than it really is.

    But the goal of practically every action movie trailer is for it to be epic/intense.
