5) I Became More And More Convinced That Watchmen Might Actually Be Good
Over the summer I shared with you my concerns for the upcoming Watchmen adaptation. How Zach Snyder doesn’t inspire much confidence. How the book is practically holy scripture for legions of bearded, caped fans and to translate would be blasphemous. How after following the film’s production and watching its trailer I… am not so worried anymore. Really. At least on an artistic level, it looks as though they’ve done everything right. The latest round of posters (included below) does nothing to dissuade that notion.
Appropriately gritty without overdoing the “realism” that so often plagues comic book adaptations, these one-sheets rock my world. Am I setting myself up for disappointment? More than likely, but anticipation is always too much fun to pass up. Four months!
