Like it or not, I am completely obsessed with all things Watchmen at the moment. I get to see it in about six days and there's nothing else I'm more excited for right now. I suggest everyone get into the same mood soon, too, it's fun, and I'm certain the payoff will be completely worth it in the end. That said, thanks to Collider, I stumbled across an awesome bit of viral marketing for Watchmen that is just too cool not to share. Over on the official UK website, there's a playable 8-bit arcade video game based on the movie that just kicks some serious ass. Really, it's so frickin' fun! Everyone needs to play this thing right now!
It's based on the Minutemen, the costumed heroes that existed before the Watchmen way back in the 1940s, and you can play as either the original Nite Owl or the original Silk Spectre and kick some bad guy ass like in old school arcade games. Oh how much fun this is! Just click the link below to check it out and enjoy!
Watchmen is directed by Zack Snyder (of Dawn of the Dead and 300) and is written by David Hayter (The Scorpion King, X-Men, X-Men 2) and Alex Tse. The film is an adaptation of Alan Moore's highly acclaimed award winning graphic novel of the same name. Watchmen officially arrives in theaters everywhere on March 6th, 2009.
