Poor owlie needs WAY more of a gut. Archie doesn't look too bad though.
God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

I haven't seen what it is yet, because Quicktime and I aren't getting along today. But once we've kissed and made up, I hope to find out it's more than a teaser. ;)

POOP!

As it was downloading I asked myself, 'You know, they've been in post for some time why are they waiting to release until 3/6/9?' Then I remembered Dr. Manhattan.

AADGLKASJDGLKSJDGGSLDKJ!! I'm so psyched! That Smashing Pumpkins song fit perfectly too.

1UP has a transcript of the round-table at Comic Con. It has some typos but it's still pretty exciting.

Watched the trailer on the IMAX yesterday during the Batman Dark Knight movie. It was definitely upconverted a tad bit for the IMAX so it was a little grainy, but when it hits the IMAX, I'm seeing it there.

Slashdot wrote:Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooes!!
"Due to some potential copyright issues, The Watchmen might be delayed, or worse. It seems that Fox claims it still owns copyrights which would prevent Warner Bros from releasing the movie. US District Court Judge Gary Feess decided that Fox had enough of a case that he's willing to hear things out. The geek in me hopes that it will be resolved quickly and the movie will hit theaters on time."


Let's hope this is resolved quickly!

can't wait for this movie to come out, I just re-read the comic.

All the characters are awesome, my favorite though is the Comedian and Rorschach!

New, extended trailer!

http://www.watchmencomicmovie.com/11130 ... railer.php

Have a watch and tell me if the dialogue doesn't sound cheap. I know I'm a skeptic at heart and I'm already looking for reasons to consider this movie a disservice to the book but, honestly, a lot of the lines sounds kind of silly and were not in the book. Rorschach actually calls the heroes 'Watchmen' which is never done in the book and the bit with Juspeczyk and Dr Manhattan on Mars sounds like something out of a daytime drama: 'Do it for me!' This was also not in the book. I think I fear that the brilliant and moving dialogue has been boiled down to a paraphrase for the sake of film. Let's hope it was just poor editing in the trailer.
