Watchmen


Coming out in 2009, but already eagerly awaited: The Watchmen Movie.

Director is Zack Snyder of "300" fame. Knowing that, I gather that the movie will be largely faithful to its comic book origins. The trailer partly confirms that, showing as it does the origin of Dr. Manhattan, the Owl rising out of the water, and the iconic shot of The Comedian astride the Owl confronting the protesters.

After "The Dark Knight", though, "Watchmen" will have its work cut out for it.
