Film Watchmen Trailer

I think that a Watchmen movie is a terrible idea. It’s a wonderful comic book that was planned to be just that: a wonderful comic book. For it to become a movie, it would take a director who could somehow make it as dependent on the medium of film as the original was on the medium of comic books. And I just don’t have that kind of trust in Zack Snyder.
That said, Dr. Manhattan looks fucking awesome, and I will be there on opening weekend. Even if it was as bad as it could possibly be, it wouldn’t ruin the comic book for me.
