Watchmen Video Journal: The Minutemen
It's that time of the month and that means we've got the latest Watchmen video journal to share with all of you. Empire presents the 10th of 12 behind-the-scenes video journals chronicling the development of the film. Today's video journal focuses on the Minutemen - a group of "costumed avengers" that was formed before the events of Watchmen in 1939 and disbanded ten years later in 1949. It does a great job of explaining the overall concept of Watchmen - the idea of what if people dressed up in costumes and got into the vigilante business? For fans of Watchmen and newcomers alike, this is a great intro video.
