Ooooh, the first official pictures from the Watchmen movie are out and they actually look.... GOOD! I am shocked. Here is the link to the official blog and images:

Watchmen Blog

Most of them look really good, but I am not so sure about Ozymandias... although I knew they couldn't do them all exactly like they are in the comic. The rest are pretty sweet, and Rorschach looks amazing. I am starting to get excited... it's actually happening this time and it looks pretty good so far.... and NO Keanu Reeves, so that's a plus.

Take it in... enjoy.

I was thinking about his and am really wondering how they are going to do Dr. Manhattan. I know he's going to be CG (with the real actor doing the motion capture), but is he going to be naked man? He sure is a big blue naked man in the comic. No pictures of him yet, so we have to wait and see.

I am really not sure about this movie. That picture of Nite Owl better be a flash back. Where is his gut? That is actually important, but will probably be cut. The pirate story will be animated? Why, because it was a comic within the comic? Silk Spectre looks too young in the pictures Ive seen of her.


I know, I am being a nitpicker but is it to much to ask for for it to be right.

I think it's looking promising... especially since Keanu is no longer attached (as he has been in the last couple attempts to make is)... and it could always be way worse... Imagine this version being what's in the works:

I've been waiting for this movie for nearly 20 bloody years, so I glad to see it come to fruition. I've seen some of the early scripts, and they were not even close to the original story... in fact they were reminiscent of a bad TV superhero movie, campy and lame; focusing way too much on that it was a comic. Based upon the productions stills alone, you can tell they headed in the right direction on this one. Be thankful that they came to their senses and are doing something close to the genuine deal.

...and a 'Peanuts' Watchmen would be interesting, something for the kids to watch on Saturday morning. Train them to be bitter at a tender age...

I just don't want to see Charlie Brown's junk, even if it is blue... Although Snoopy looks really cool in the pic.

If it were to be aimed as a Saturday morning kid's show, Charlie Brown's junk would be obscured by flower vases, passing animals, party balloons... etc.; so no CB's junk. What kind o' station do you this we would run a quality show like this on, FOX?

But if it was on FOX it would never reach the end of the story. It would be canceled a half dozen episodes in, after having aired them out of order. And the last three episodes they paid for would never be aired. You'd have to buy the DVD set a year later just see them... and you know you would.

I was thinking more along the lines of CBS... FOX just might be too tempted to show Blue Chuck's junk... even if it was just a blurred out mess. Good grief!

The trailer is alive... All over YouTube, but I found a link to a 720p version that works for now... may be taken down at some point.
