Watchmen Video Journal: Blue Monday - Dr. Manhattan

October 6, 2008
It's that time of the month and that means we've got the latest Watchmen video journal to share with all of you. SciFi presents the 7th of 12 behind-the-scenes video journals chronicling the development of the film. Today's video journal focuses on the one true superhero from the Watchmen universe - the blue man known as Dr. Manhattan. It's obviously a monumental task integrating a giant glowing translucent blue man into nearly ever last scene, but Zack Snyder and crew knew it was an integral part of pulling off a literal adaptation of the graphic novel. Billy Crudup stars as Jon Osterman / Dr. Manhattan and gives us an intimate look at the process of making the CGI superhero come to life on the big screen.
Watch the seventh Watchmen video journal - Blue Monday:
Each new video is release on the 6th of every month, so check back again on November 6th for the next Watchmen video journal in the series. Last month: Watchmen Video Journal: The Look of Watchmen.
