Two New TV Spots - Friday the 13th and Watchmen

How about a little bit of entertainment to keep you occupied while watching the Golden Globes tonight? Two new TV spots have popped up on the web today, one from Friday the 13th, the other from Watchmen. No, this doesn't mean anything in relation to the Watchmen legal battle, as I'm sure Warner Brothers booked this TV spot months ago, before they knew what would happen. Neither of the new TV spots have that much good footage, but I'm always a fan of featuring them because it's the footage that most moviegoers will see as they're determining whether or not to actually catch the movie in theaters.
Watch the first TV spot for Watchmen:
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. Stay tuned for even more Watchmen coverage, photos, and more here on FS.net!
Watch the first TV spot for Friday the 13th:
Friday the 13th is directed by ex-music video director Marcus Nispel, of 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Pathfinder previously. The screenplay for this reboot was penned by writing partners Damian Shannon and Mark Swift of Freddy vs Jason previously. Although this Friday the 13th is not a sequel, it is technically the 11th film in the franchise and follows Jason's last appearance in Freddy vs Jason in 2003. Warner Brothers is bringing Friday the 13th to theaters on Friday, February 13th, 2009.
