Watchmen in Japanese

01.06.2009

WATCHMEN

Ooooooh, daddy like! Daddy like lots! Whoa, sorry, it's just that this new Japanese trailer for the Zack Snyder directed, Alan Moore adapted WATCHMEN is ten shades of awesome. So awesome, it should be illegal! And if Fox has their way, it will be! *Sigh* In any case, the trailer has a bunch of new footage and some smooth pimp daddy Japanese voice over. And in case you haven't heard, the film follows the investigation of a murdered ex-superhero that leads to all kinds of complex intrigue and emotional stuff. Check it below. We may watch the WATCHMEN March 6th.

do you really care???

This is strange...why do some people expect a masterpiece of filmaking? Do you care? You need to watch films because they make you laugh, smile, cry, feel good, etc. Not to see if the frame on camera 2 is cut to high or the panoramic view is full of the right shade of grey. A movie is only as good as the story and Watchmen is a great story. I dont care if Snyder or a 12yr old kid directs it, it would still be good because the story is.
If you make a movie from a good book then people

If you make a movie from a good book then people interpret that differently so some, even most will be dissapointed. However Watchmen is a graphic novel already so it is more or less a storyboard ready to go. Everyone knows what it should look like a how it will play out.
Remember when you were a kid? Books you loved , you loved because of the story. Im pretty sure most people really didnt care who wrote them or drew the pictures.

Final Post

Once again just stating that I don't hate people who want to see the Watchmen movie, hell I want to see it too but I'm just not convinced it'll be as great as people are hyping it up to be. I knew that if I made a post that said I wasn't convinced by it I'd have fanboys up to my neck with sharp knives but as a huge fan of the comic I'm just not convinced that the movie will totally work. I'm still excited and pray that it will be good but I don't think Zack Snyder has fully proven himself. But

I'm still excited and pray that it will be good but I don't think Zack Snyder has fully proven himself. But I guess it could be directed by someone big like Spielberg but he still managed to fuck up Indiana Jones 4 and War of the Worlds so I guess it's up to the cards to decide. Finally Burgerking my complaints may be minimal because I don't want to talk all day but really my only complaint is that a Watchmen movie is being made.

I was also very disappointed at the casting of Ozymandias, Tom Cruise and Jude Law both expressed interest in the role and I think either one would've been perfect. Matthew Goode is a terrific actor (see Matchpoint or The Lookout if you're not familar with him), but I agree he's just too young for the role. If you read the exerpts from "Under the Hood" then you can figure out most of the character's ages and Ozymandias is almost 50.

However, think about it from this standpoint. Snyder has

However, think about it from this standpoint. Snyder has only so much money to spend on the film, he can either hire a bunch of A-List stars, and leave himself with a small production budget resulting in fakier effects and visuals, or he can hire a lesser know, but still very talented cast, and give us a much more detailed and realistic visual experience. At first, I was really disappointed that he went with the second choice, but with time I've become very grateful that he did.

I will admit though, that Malin Akerman is the one cast member I'm yet to be convinced about. However, I'm sure that Snyder and no shortage of up and coming actresses to choose from, and yet she decided to go with her, so I'm going to try to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Visionary Director means Director with Vision. Hell, if that's the case, then I'm a doggone Visionary Slacker.

duke44 you ask too much

Not to say that I don't have my doubt about Snyder, his background shows he can make stylish films but there has never been much substance. However, your complaints are farrr too minimal to concern yourself about. He created pretty fucking authentic representations of the characters in the comics.

Banter!

Not to cause fighting but I'll only accept logical responses. So my response to you Project 86 is that of course he's going to say some crap like that. Warner Brothers didn't give him the budget he wanted so instead of making the movie shorter with less special effects he's going to cast unknowns. And originally Kate Winslet wanted the role of Laurie Juspeczyk but instead he gave it to Malin Ackerman. If you really think the gangbang girl from Harold & Kumar is a better actress you be crazy.

Also Tom Cruise wanted to be Ozymandias but instead he gave it to an unknown 29 year old when Ozy is well into his 40's in the comics. Yes he wanted it to be easy to do flashbacks but come on. He didn't have the money for a better cast. Oh but Jackie Earle Haley is perfect. Bravo.

Uhhhh...

As a fan of the comic am I the only one left that has no faith in this movie? I mean I liked 300 but only because it was so goofy, I still don't think Zack Snyder is a "visual mastermind." I understand why he cast such lesser known actors in the movie due to budget but they're all too young except maybe Billy Crudup. And wasn't having My Chemical Romance covering Bob Dylan the final nail in the Watchmen movie coffin? Oh well, I'll get some hate replies back and I guess I'll have to see it to

I think this is the best Watchmen trailer they've released since the 1st one in 08, before TDK. Lots of neat shots of Nixon, JFK and Kissenger. Really establishing the alternate historical context behind the story.

Not to mention absolutely epic music to end it.

those extra scenes were interesting to see but it's no where near the second trailer. that had a much better buildup of the story and much better music.
