Watchmen No More Masks

A new clip to promote the Watchmen movie. The clip is said to be from a House Committee on Un-American Activities which purpose is to track down the Vigilantes: the Watchmen aren't praise anymore and are under law restriction!

Watchmen No more masks:

The Keene Act and you.
The House Committee on Un-American Activities

Who watches the Watchmen?

No Masks, No capes, No gadgets or experimental weapons, No dangerous unlicensed vehicles

Together we can forge a better America!

Using superimposed titles, a clunky 16mm projector framing, and of course rotten audio, the clip makes the alternate world of Watchmen so real!

And take a look to this poster inspired by the no-more-masks campaign:
(Click on the poster to enlarge it.)
Roschach is outlawed for wanting to keep the mask and to pursue his vigilante career!

Watchmen Movie Cast

Zack Snyder's WatchmenDirector Zack Snyder is introducing the different characters of the Watchmen universe in this new featurette:

WATCHMEN - Featurette with Director Zack Snyder

Just to help you a bit, here the cast of Watchmen:

- Patrick Wilson as Daniel Dreiberg / Nite Owl: A retired vigilante superhero with technological experience.

- Jackie Earle Haley as Walter Kovacs / Rorschach: A superhero who continues his vigilante activities after they are outlawed. He was transformed over time from a "soft" costumed hero into a killer who sees the world in black and white.

- Malin Akerman as Laurie Juspeczyk / Silk Spectre: A retired vigilante superheroine. Akerman described her character as the psychology and the emotion of the film due to being the only woman among the men.

- Billy Crudup as Dr. Jon Osterman / Doctor Manhattan: A superhero with genuine powers who works for the U.S. government.

- Matthew Goode as Adrian Veidt / Ozymandias: A retired vigilante superhero who has since made his identity public.

- Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Edward Blake / The Comedian: A vigilante superhero who is commissioned by the U.S. government.

- Stephen McHattie as Hollis Mason: The first vigilante to take up the mantle of Nite Owl.

- Carla Gugino as Sally Jupiter: A retired vigilante superheroine, mother of Laurie Juspeczyk and the first Silk Spectre.

- Matt Frewer as Edgar Jacobi / Moloch the Mystic: An elderly rehabilitated criminal, known when he was younger as an underworld kingpin and magician.

- Niall Matter as Mothman: He is not a main focus of the storyline, but appears in flashbacks, at one point reduced in his later years to fragile sanity, unnerving the second Silk Spectre. He is regarded fondly by most of the Minutemen, and the first Nite Owl sends the second to visit him, uncostumed, on his behalf.

- Dan Payne as Dollar Bill: A first-generation crimefighter who caught his cape in a revolving door during a bank robbery and was shot to death.

- Danny Woodburn as "The Big Figure": A dwarf crime boss whom Rorschach put in prison.

The movie Watchmen looks so amazing! It would be a shame if because of Fox' greediness (they're suing WB over the rights of the film!) the release happens to be pushed back. (I am wondering if Alan Moore the grumpy old man did not use some voodoo against the movie...)

If it wasn't for Wolverine, I would curse Fox for sure! But as of now I just keep hope that Fox and Warner Bros will sort out this mess! Damn: we need to see Watchmen!

Update: An agreement has been settled between Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox, so the movie Watchmen will be released in due time! Hurray!

Watchmen Scream Awards Footage

Sweet footage of Watchmen has been shown during the Scream Awards. And people did scream out of joy when it was announced

Here below the Watchmen Scream Awards footage

Watchmen Footage from Scream Awards

I really don't understand why Alan Moore, the original writer of the comic book, does not give his support to Zack Snyder. The more Watchmen footage the more I get enthusiast about the movie, and so do plenty of fans around the world. Alan Moore should step down from his Ivory tower.

Anyway I suppose Alan More is not the first artist to produce a great work but to have a pig personality.

Once again, thumbs up for Zack Snyder whose adaptation of the Watchmen is just marvelous!

Watchmen Bootleg Preview Clip

A bootleg preview clip of the Watchmen shown during the latest San Diego Comic Con has leaked online via trailer addict. Not the best bootleg quality but you'll forgive the cameraman because the glimpse of the Watchmen movie we have is awesome, with an inspiring soundtrack:

I still have this music and those colors in my head! Watchmen does stand out! Director Zack Snyder is making a damned great job: Alan Moore, original writer of the comic book, should praise Zack Snyder and give him a hand instead of keeping a disdainful silence.

Thumbs up for the fellow fan who shared with this Watchmen footage from the Comic Con with the community!

Watchmen Making-Of

A new making-of featurette has been released for Watchmen, upcoming movie based on the comic book of the same name. The film is directed by Zack Snyder, who once made the amazing blockbuster 300.

Here it is:

It's incredible all the energy Hollywood put in making a film: Watchmen is going to be awesome!

The costumes aren't the least invested front:

Some stunts can be highly dangerous:

Douglas Chapman, a stunt performer, is set on fire during a riot scene in a prison.

The Devil is in the detail, but Zack Snyder who is a real comic book fan won't get caught. Even illustrator David Gibbons who worked on the original comic book Watchmen acknowledges the great work done on Watchmen the movie:

By the way did you see Rorschach?

More behind-the-scenes featurettes should be released along the year. So we'll be even more amazed by Watchmen.

Watchmen in March 2009

Do you remember the 1980's comics book Watchmen?
This comic book written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons was originally published by DC Comics as a monthly limited series from 1986 to 1987.

Watchmen Comic Book
This comic book was in the vanguard, no wonder it is now being adapted to the cinema.

The film is directed by Zack Snyder (who brought us 300) and is starring Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Matthew Goode, Stephen McHattie and Carla Gugino. It should be released in March 2009.

Here the plot:
"In an alternate 1985 where superheroes exist, tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are at an all time high. The vigilante Rorschach is investigating the murder of the Comedian, and uncovers a plot to discredit and murder various heroes. Rorschach discovers a far wider ranging conspiracy involving his colleagues' past which could completely change the course of history." (Wikipedia)

I wonder how they will manage to transpose the world incredibly full of details of Watchmen into a movie... Anyway, let's keep our fingers crossed for the film to be a real success!

For those who may have known the comic book before, the pictures above can but ring a bell: the characters and the movie sets are damned closed to the work originally done by writer Alan Moore and illustrator Dave Gibbons.
