Final Watchmen poster

01.28.2009

The one part of WATCHMEN so far that I haven't been completely in love with are the posters. They're just not working for me. And that's a shame because I'd love to have a really f*cking cool WATCHMEN poster to hang on my office wall. The final theatrical poster for WATCHMEN is here and it's just more of the same. Basically just a combo of the previous character posters. More Gloomy Gus superheroes standing out in the rain. In the end, it's just a poster though and will have no bearing on the film itself, which from all that I've seen, is gonna rock our world.

NICE!!!

This poster is pretty bad ass. I don't see what's wrong with it because everybody is complaining about it.

yikes

For something with such strong source material, this film has just had a slew of awful posters. And I'm no fan of Snyder, so this really isn't encouraging me, especially when the 'other' big comic book film of the year also had some of the best designed and most inventive posters...

I'll say it again. Watchmen is going to bomb. It's overhyped and having an R-rating is going to kill the prospect of superhero-loving children and many teens. So Snyder better hope it's fanbase is large enough because the film won't be strong in any other demographics.

Snore.

I have no faith in this movie and this poster does nothing to help.
I hope it ends up being good, I just can't imagine.

" FROM VISIONARY DIRECTOR OF'300' "
Seriously ? Maybe one could use tagline of that magnitude on someone like Scorsese, Speilberg or Fincher, but Snyder . Gimme a fuckin' break !

Yeah, this one's as shitty as the rest, but they weren't ALL bad. The Comicon preview poster they gave out two years ago was fucking brilliant. They basically remade one of the "Comedian Getting Killed" comic panels in super close-up format. I still have it on my wall. Even if the movie ends up sucking, I'm still gonna keep it up, cuz it's just that cool.

This poster is pretty meh. Seems they've taken the same background and photoshopped some older pics of the characters to make it.

Ditto with using the same image of Manhattan over and over but it is likely that they'll want to keep some stuff as close to their chest as possible.

Am I the only one who doesn't give a shit? It's the Watchmen... we know it's gonna be good. This isn't a make/break scenario with this movie, because it's the WATCHMEN.

horrible

I haven't been impressed by their posters. But this is so bad it might hurt the film. This makes it look like it's an x-men type film among other super-hero flms. They should really re-think their final poster. This looks like a bad manip for a DVD box-art.

Not as impressive as the character banners, but hey it's still Watchmen, and it's going to be a fantastic movie.

Rorschach kind of looks embarrassed to be there, and Dr. Manhattan looks sad. He should make himself a puppy or something.

Why not "Who Watches the Watchmen?"

Not necessarily a bad poster, and I full-heartedly agree on the issue/dissapointment that I haven't seen Doc. Manhattan in any other pose. But I can just imagine how much better this poster could have been if instead of that entirely oversized quote of "from the visionary director...", they chose to put the simple, but iconic phrase, "Who Watches the Watchmen?" If that quote were there instead, I would already have one on it's way to be hung on my wall. Instead....meh.

Half Soldier

I'm not asking to be blown away by a poster, I just don't wanna see Manhattan in the same fucking pose over and over again. It just seems cheap to me....

Or it could be that they are trying to save all the more visually impressive parts for release.

On the foreal...

....is it just me, or do they literally keep reusing the exact same image of Doc Manhattan and photoshopping him into different places?

Foreal. Manhattan sound be the MOST visually impressive aspect of this film, and so far, I haven't really been blown away. I still have high hopes though....
