Watchmen synopsis

I remember wanting to post this story about a week ago when it first appeared, but somewhere in between begging my ex to take me back and drinking myself closely to death because she wouldn't, I must have forgot. But today, amidst all the WATCHMEN casting news and the release of the official HULK synopsis, I bring you a precise combination of those two stories: the official WATCHMEN synopsis, straight from Warner Bros:

Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" – which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity... but who is watching the Watchmen?

And there it is, people. This movie is happening, for reals.
Extra Tidbit: WATCHMEN director Zack Snyder started off as an award-winning music video and commerical director.
