Suspense, Action, Drama And Awesomeness Ensues: the Watchmen!
There’s two new movie trailers that have got me really, really excited lately with the first being Watchmen and the second being Max Payne.
The official Watchmen trailer appeared on YouTube last week and high fives all round to the marketing team behind that one! Watchmen has long been considered one of, if not the, best graphic novels of all time so a film adaption was inevitable. In brief, the story is based around the murder of an ex-superhero and a former vigilante who decides to do a bit of digging around.
Suspense, action, drama and awesomeness ensues. Basically it’s like The Incredibles but darker. Zac Synder, the guy behind 300, is directing. Also the casting director behind Watchmen deserves a big box of Ferrero Rocher’s for having the balls to pick a no-name cast. Don’t take that as an insult, I mean it in a 100% complimentary way because if you slapped on names like Angelina Jolie as Silk Spectre, Clive Owen as The Comedian and Hugh Jackman as Nite Owl then people aren’t going to be focused on the story anymore, they’ll be focused on the stars. And the Watchmen story deserves to be focused on.
