Wanting to Watch Watchmen

In case you don’t know: Watchmen, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ dark superhero masterpiece is being made into a movie for a 2009 release. These stills from watchmencomicmovie.com (here) give me hope that it will be of high quality. Fans of the graphic novel will notice many important but subtle clues in these pictures. Could it be true? Could a great Watchman adaptation be on the way? I hope so.

Who Watches the Watchmen? You and me in 2009!

Oh and read the graphic novel… it’s totally worth it. Read it.

Let me join the ranks of Watchmen fans holding their breaths.

Do you think they can feasibly compress the Watchmen into two hours?

The Gunga Diner is a great name. I wonder if the word "collectibles" on the Treasure Island sign is intentionally mispelllllled.

These scenes remind me of the of the movie Dick Tracy. Different time, but similar dark, run down look to it. A lot people didn't like the colorizing in that film, but I thought gave it a Sunday comics feel.

Looks like this could be very good. The Gunga Diner is great.
