It think it looks pretty awesome. I don't know if it's worth going to the cinema for, though.

Same.  The graphic novel is truely awesome, and the trailer left me wanting to see more now!

It looks surprisingly good. I really do hope that they do it justice though. I am a huge fan of the graphic novel.

I really liked it but I thought the actor playing Rorschach was trying to hard with his voice, or thats what it seemed like from that tiny snippet

I think Snyder knows that this movie has to be the most faithful comic book adaptation ever for it to be really successful.  It's such an iconic graphic novel that even the most minor of changes or omissions is going to be picked out and flamed.  Saying this, I have faith that Snyder will make an amazing film.  The trailer only solidifies my opinion.

Though i haven't read the novel i'm fairly certain they had me gripped when you seen Dr Manhattan.

Badass...


Of course thats just going off his appearance, as i said i never read the novel so for all i know he's an idiot...

i thought it was awesome.  dr manhattan looks great.

I think it looks good,I have a lot of good faith in Zach Snyder as seeing his first 2 movies (Dawn of the Dead,300) were both very good.

Never read the comic, so when I watched the trailer, I thought "wtf is this movie even about? well at least they got good music..."

Watchen is my favorite graphic novel of all time, and I think, although it has a different tone, that the movie is doing the book justice. It looks very awesome!

I reccomend you read it, it's superb. What was the name of the song they used though, I liked it.
#19 Posted by SaintLeonidas (183 posts) -

Its a Smashing Pumpkins song called like "The End is the Beginning is the End."

#20 Posted by BulletPulse (182 posts) -

Looks good.

It looks pretty good. I'll definitely be checking it out.

#24 Posted by isawachuck (159 posts) -

I'll definitely be there for the opening day.  I've been waiting for this to happen for a looooong time now.  It's a safe bet that Alan Moore will hate it, but let's hope he doesn't hate it oo much.

#25 Posted by Locke (335 posts) -

The trailer looks awesome.

#26 Posted by SM5240 (158 posts) -

Saw the trailer in front of The Dark Knight and it was pretty impressive. It really utilized that Smashing Pumpkins song well, which I think added a lot.

#27 Posted by Batman (1018 posts) -

I've never read the graphic novel, but the trailer looked promising. 

#28 Posted by Funkyhamster (97 posts) -

It looked pretty cool... I want to read the graphic novel sometime; after that I'll probably have more appreciation for it.

#29 Posted by L (1766 posts) -

Trailer was awesome. The music by The Smashing Pumpkins went very well with it. I was just listening to that track.

#30 Posted by rckbikes (92 posts) -

Also, for those too lazy to read a graphic novel, to coincide with the movie's release, they've animated the comic and added voiceover (wouldn't say it's a cartoon... think the max payne cutscenes) and the 1st episode is free on iTunes... Not too shabby either!!

He won't even see it...

I've read it three times, though the last time was probably 10-12 years ago.
I thought the trailer looked great, and that Snyder is trying really hard to do it justice.
It's an impossible task to get the amazing depth of character that existed in the comic book.
One of two things is going to happen. They'll make the film for those that read the comic book and already understand the characters.
This will leave the uninitiated scratching their heads in confusion.
Or, they will strip it down to be self contained to the film which will be nice for those late to the party, but will leave the fans pissed at all they had to leave out.

Which way is it going to go? Will have to wait and see.

It's looking immense. Let's hope it lives up to the hype.

#34 Posted by Darth_Tyrev (226 posts) -

Looks pretty cool.

#35 Posted by albedos_shadow (1558 posts) -

Saw this when I went to see The Dark Knight, and as soon as I saw Rorschach, I was like "Holy shit, I have to see this movie."

#36 Posted by Hannibal (877 posts) -

I wrote a blog about this last night just before going to sleep. It's kinda rambly.

I think it'll be a fantastic fan service but for anyone that hasn't read the book it'll probably suck since half of the enjoyment is getting all of the backstory.

#37 Posted by MSG (214 posts) -

I absolutely adore the graphic novel and the trailer was great.  I'm still a little skeptical about Snyder (the director) but from what we saw in the trailer it looks to be extremely faithful to the novel if anything.

On a side note, it's funny how little is actually in the trailer to interest people who aren't fans of the novel.  I saw the trailer in an IMAX theater before Dark Knight, and about 10 people, myself included, started cheering at its conclusion, but the rest of the audience, their faces made visible thanks to the IMAX screen, looked completely dumbfounded.

#47 Posted by Met2609 (635 posts) -

I was really impressed by the trailer. I like Zack Snyder as a director and I just love the look they have for this movie. I'm definitely going to check out the graphic novel first, though.
