The Watchmen trailer is out, and it's gorgeous.
A few tiny false notes, and a few smallish things that make me hesitant (overuse of slo-mo, too much black leather and body armor), but overall the look is stunning. And there's at least one moment that I think is an exact copy of a frame from the comic, though I'd have to go back and check to be sure.
Thanks for the pointer, Colin! You made my day.
Oh, and in case anyone's confused by the "2009" caption early on in the preview, I'm pretty sure that's just the release date--my understanding (including from the description on the abovelinked Apple page) is that the movie is indeed set in the same alternate 1985 as the comic.
Release date is 6 March 2009. I can't wait. It could still suck as a movie and as an adaptation, but it sure will look good.
. . . Hee--the cast list on that Apple page includes Laurie Juspeczyk and Jon Osterman. Methinks someone (or some automatic parsing system) didn't realize that the names were alternating actor names with their character names.
. . . I just downloaded the iPod version of the trailer to put on my iPhone, just because I can.
