Nitey,
Why were you ever worried? You have a great comic book story brought to us by the guy that did 300......I always thought it would be done well.

Cool pic

Hey Otter, I was just a little concerned when the other recent costumes came out, too shiny in my opinion. Especially NiteOwl who is supposed to be a normal everyday guy.

Thoughts on the trailer with some minor spoilers...

I hadn't really bothered paying too much attention to the development of this, I love the source material and didn't want to be too let down with Hollywood bastardising it. So from low expectations I was pleasantly surprised with the trailer. I really liked the costume design matching the book without looking goofy, all the characters look great, hell even NiteOwl's 'Archie' looked great. I kind of wish they weren't bullet timing what seems like every second scene but i expected it given it's the same director as did 300. I'm curious now to see how they handle some of he more unusual aspects of the book like covering the Comedian's rape, Ozymandias' pets or Manhattan's nudity. Thought it was odd they were using the Smashing Pumpkins alternate version of their Batman & Robin soundtrack single, though I guess it's not unusual for trailers to use music from other movies.

Also, that music is really awesome and really fitting. I found this trailer to be quite compelling even though I haven't been following the project, nor do I have much hope for it - it gave me chills seeing some of those iconic scenes from the graphic novel rendered onscreen to that music, but then there's all that slow motion crap (what, will the entire film be slowmo?) and the costumes - which look better here than they have in promo shots - still look too artificial to be true Watchmen costumes.

I really dislike the director, but we'll see. We'll see!

Well I just caught the trailer as well! It looks pretty spot on. I guess I will just have to get over the costumes though.

I know nothing about Watchmen apart from who's making the film, and the fact that the book(s) is(are) well respected.

But I have to say, that is a trailer I can watch over, and over, and over... Smile
