Wow - Another Stunning Watchmen TV Spot!

February 14, 2009


While every other previous TV spot we've seen has been about the energy and excitement associated with Watchmen, none of them have really touched on the tragedy and sadness associated with it. However, this one today finally shows us, albeit very briefly, the kind of emotions and tragedy that the characters in this world are suffering. I absolutely love the music in this and I really hope that it's part of Tyler Bate's score from the movie, and if it isn't, someone please tell me what it is. I'm completely caught up in Watchmen mania right now and all I'm doing now is just counting down the hours until I get to finally see it.

Watch the third 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!

best one so far

Actually, while I liked the t.v spot, I though that the music in trailer 2 of Watchmen was a lot better. It had more of an emotional urgency. Can't wait for the movie either way.

David Wilson on Feb 14, 2009


Different take on the feel of the trailers - I liked it! Thanks FS.net! I am seriously counting down the days til March 6th!

nelson on Feb 14, 2009


love it

james on Feb 14, 2009


meh if i saw that, and had known nothing bout the movie let alone the book, i dont think id be too interested (based solely on that trailer)

swisschez on Feb 14, 2009


^ and people wonder why they market towards action buffs lol this trailer truly shows what watchmen is about

nelson on Feb 14, 2009


it was really what watchmen is abouth

josh on Feb 14, 2009


what is the title of that song, it is nice on the ears!

????? on Feb 14, 2009


Alex, If your interested the track is called Dionysus by Jocelyn Pook

Christopher M on Feb 14, 2009


Um, #7, not really. It's actually the shittiest trailer they've released yet. Yeah, that blew.

Clark M. Lamson on Feb 14, 2009


No not a all it showed the characters are hurting and are flawed comedian saying Jon is loosing touch with humanity.Then we have Laurie saying you don't know what it is like to be a crime fighter talking about her struggles being forced into crime fighting. Adrian claiming we can save this world Dan saying what happened to us referring to crime fighters.I personally think it gets the book across much better than "you haven't seen heroes like this before" lol

nelson on Feb 14, 2009


i only hope its not as gay as 300

johnny on Feb 14, 2009


i dig this trailer man

#12 you can't be serious

Scott McHenry on Feb 14, 2009


Alex the song is Dionysus by Jocelyn Pool, accoridng to my friend. If youre looking for Bates' score I'm pretty sure that on the main Watchmen site the music playing for each each character bio is from the score.

#14 This is what we call a troll. One who tries to start up shit, just to get noticed on the internet.

Justin on Feb 14, 2009


19 days and counting....

Nate on Feb 14, 2009


Clark... you have not read the comic and this trailer does capture the feel of it. i liked it as a good tv spot for the film. gives the true meaning of the comic

Sean Hunter on Feb 14, 2009


While I really like this t.v. spot, I'm a little worried about Malin Akerman's acting. She seems a tad flat. That said, looking forward to March!

Daniel on Feb 15, 2009


I think this a great trailer for the theme of Watchman. I just get the impression just from that small clip that this movie is about mistakes, despair, and other qualities our emo friends have; which always makes compelling drama. I'm more jazzed than ever for this movie. It's going to be great

L on Feb 15, 2009


Nothing special about this, same as the others.

nem on Feb 15, 2009


Alex you are watching the watchmen like in 2 days, right?

bltzie on Feb 15, 2009


SAME OLD RECYCLED SHIT...this movie is a Illuminati luciferian ritual. Don't fall for it.

Vic on Feb 15, 2009


I think the music, while a step forward from the previous LOTR-type one, is also a step back from the Muse and Smashing Pumpkins trailer. I really do like the inclusion of Spectre's dialogue in the beginning and the shot of Rorshach and the prostitute though. Showing this many pieces of the puzzle hopefully does not give away the picture on the box.

Boris on Feb 15, 2009


golden, but i fear the lack of a certain may be a giveaway

Al on Feb 15, 2009


Is the whole Film in Slow Mo?

l on Feb 15, 2009


I've yet to see anything top the first trailer that premiered in front of The Dark Knight.

Zso on Feb 15, 2009


How many more of these will we see before we can say we watched the entire movie before it came out?

Barnaby Barrilla on Feb 15, 2009


I'm going to see this movie for only one thing and that's sexy Akerman. She's hot with her costume.

Dexter on Feb 15, 2009


Not so excited about this one, but will see it anyway.

TrailerUnleashed on Feb 15, 2009


I apologise enquiring about the exhibition of tits in this feature film. But nothing like showing some tit in between dysfunctional superheroes whining and crying and a stupid squid ending. I felt that was a big letdown like the boring darkknight movie.

Jooscho pdikk on Feb 15, 2009


Eh, that spot wasn't the best. But this movie is still looking like it's going to blow me away.

Icarus on Feb 15, 2009


I would rather watch elektra on dvd than this cheat. The novel was out of world. But the movie is all about style. Well, cant complain about free surprise screening though:-)the audience got all wet, but i was disappointed. Btw elekra comment is a joke:)

Watchmen test screening attendee on Feb 15, 2009


Btw, the end sequence will appeal to the non fanboy type regular movie goer. But lot of people in the audience expected a fantastic four kinda movie with the xmen fun. Not xmen3 though, which i thought was more entertainin than the borin first one.not x2.

Watchmen test screening attendee on Feb 15, 2009


So that means VEIDT is either a jew or a christian. Whoa. Talk about destroyin and creating peace...

#34/33. Umm no "we" are NOT!

D-9 on Feb 15, 2009


Do we get to see carla guginos tits

Silkspectre on Feb 15, 2009


We need a Christian Bale cameo going all' PROFESSIONAL' at Veidt for distractin the world's attention 🙂

Evilnik on Feb 15, 2009


300 wasn't for me, and I've never been able to trust trailers since War of the Worlds, but I'm very interested to see how this film turns out.

sleepykid on Feb 15, 2009


I just have to come back and say once again that i cant wait for this movie!!! I have seen a total of like 6 Watchmen spots on MTV/Vh1 in the last 1 hour.

Nikhil Hariharan on Feb 15, 2009


Only snake worshipers oppose the Watchmen film.

AltWorlder on Feb 16, 2009


I think this movie will show exactly how does it feel to be a Super Hero. It's not about the action in the movie or how the kill the villains, it's just how people feel about them and how they are trying to protect them while people despise them.This should be how superhero movies be like.
