Tick Tock…

Man, this blog is becoming more about comic movies than I anticipated. However, I’m sure we can all agree that this is a worthy post.

We’re officially one year away from the release of the movie adaptation of what is arguably the greatest graphic novel of all time, Watchmen.  To commemorate this, the director of the flick, Zach Synder, best known for the amazing 300, decided to post the first promotional images of the characters.  To put it simply (and to key a phrase from my good buddy Jami), the pants, they are crunchy.

L to R: Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Comedian, Patrick Wilson as Nite-Owl II, Matthew Goode as Ozymandias, Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach, and Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre II.

After nearly 20 years of development hell, Watchmen is due to hit theaters on March 6, 2009.

    Emomandias isn’t looking so god king. And Silk Spectre still isn’t my favorite. But yes indeed, this is all very cruchy pants inducing!!

    I’m more interested to see how Carla Gugino looks as the first Silk Spectre, I’m thinking that will be more along the lines of what we’re used to.

    Ozymandias, much like with Nite-Owl, I could complain about the looks, but I think that they will depend on the performances.

    Also, to reference something you said on your site, Rorschach’s mask is supposed to be CG.

    I think everyone can say one thing about this though:
    They nailed THE FUCK out of The Comedian.
