The viral marketing for the upcoming Zack Snyder directed, Alan Moore adapted WATCHMEN has so far been pretty damn awesome, especially the last video of a 1960s era broadcast celebrating 10 years of Dr. Manhattan's existence (Dr. Manhattan being the god-like blue being in the film who was created after Dr. Jon Osterman was irradiated). In this latest 1960s era broadcast, the origins of the Keene Act, which outlawed costumed vigilantes, is explained. In the film, former costumed vigilantes are slowly being eliminated and one of those, Rorschach, starts investigating and unravels a complex web of intrigue. It opens March 6th.

Extra Tidbit: The Keene Act took affect after costumed vigilantes caused a New York police strike in 1977, which led to riots in the streets.

Also, you guys should make note that there's an audio clip of a Radio news report of the Keene Riots, with an actual reporter on site of the riots. It's fantastic. Link below:
