Default 1.5 min clip from Watchmen

I don't know about you, but I'm super psyched for this flick! Here's a minute and a half clip for those who are also drooling in anticipation of this movie.

This movie looks incredible. Hopefully all of the previews are how the rest of the movie will be.

Have you read the comic? I have and have been wanting a movie for years. I liked what he director did with his previous comic adaptation 300, so I have high hopes for this one as well.

I never read the book but maybe after I see the movie I will go back and do so. 300 was a great movie as well. I lose track of the writers but 300 was Frank Miller right? Who wrote Watchmen?

Since you know a lot about comics I had heard that they were going to try and make a movie from the Preacher comics. That was the last comic I read based on reccomendation from the LCS and I really liked it.

I also read Marvel Zombies and that has Sam Raimi written all over it!

Marvel Zombies was awesome, and you're right, matching it up with Sam Raimi would be awesome.

Preacher was written by Garth Ennis, who also writes Ghost Rider and other assorted "Gritty" titles. He's one of my favorites. They've been trying to make a Preacher movie for years, but it'll probably suffer the same fate as Punisher in regards to public acceptance of the character and premise.

Yes, 300 was Frank Miller. He's currently working on All Star Batman & Robin, which is an awesome Batman comic.

300 was overrated, I preferred Sin City to it.

I'm just the opposite. Sin City had a lot of style, but the story wasn't very good IMHO. 300 was actual history (glorified a bit)

Would you have like Sin City better if they stuck to the comic and had Alba naked?

I didn't enjoy 300's visuals after a while. I think that movie won most homoerotic to. I still liked it though.
