Check This Out: Another Awesome Watchmen TV Spot

January 19, 2009


Now that the Watchmen legal battle has been resolved, it's time to open the flood gates for all thing Watchmen! Leading up to its March 6th release in just over a month, I'm sure there will be plenty of badass debuts and so much more. We already ran a TV spot previously, which wasn't that great, but this one is awesome. I really hope the score they're using in this is from the movie, because if it is, I'm already getting chills just thinking about when it's going to be used in the film. Not that I need to remind anyone at this point, but Watchmen is going to kick some serious ass. Check this brand new TV spot out!

Watch the second 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!

Def. not the music that's in the movie, well at least for the choir work. That's Immediate Music/X-Ray Dog/or Two Steps from Hell.

Awesome t.v. spot! The music goes great with this.

Wow, that spot was horribly cut. If it wasn't for the new footage I would've cried fake. I'm looking forward to Watchmen just as much as the next guy and I surf the net everyday trying to find new information on it but that spot was just...wow. Fire whoever cut that, a teenager with Windows Movie Maker could cut something better,

Ok that TV spot was pretty weak, especially for people who dont know what the Watchmen is. They seriously need a new trailer that speaks for the average movie goer, not just the comic book fans. BUT im going to watch this movie in the IMAX twice, yup before b-day and week of b-day, hell yea!!

Wow! I accidentely jizzed bombed my dog. That was awesome. Not.

#9 - I've got to disagree with you on that... This is a GREAT trailer for people who don't know Watchmen! They don't want to reveal too much, but they hit on a few key things. First, they have the line "someone is picking off costumed superheroes" which pretty much sums up the plot in a super short sentence. And secondly, they give us a taste of the energetic, stylized action that Zack Snyder had in 300 that made that a huge success, too. I think you're wrong on making that call. I think this is the EXACT kind of TV spot that will help turn this into a $100 million+ massive success!

I don't know what keeps happening to the embedded clips on FirstShowing but the fullscreen option is broken for me again. A long while back, whenever I'd click fullscreen, it'd scale to the height of the screen, chopping off the left and right sides of the clip. Then, all of a sudden it was working how you'd expect. Now though, just recently, it's gone back to the bad old days.

Let me say one thing: more I see of Watchmen, less I like it. It is cheesy, forced, idiot. Yep, the fanboys are crazy about it and... nothing. This thing says nothing to the rest of the public. Forget it, it isn't another 300 aside the slowwwwww motionnnnn crap that Snyder loves. It won't be a hit outside the fanboy geek world.

Sam on Jan 20, 2009


I disagree with #13 and many others. Saying "It won't be a hit outside the fanboy geek world." Is the opposite of what Snyder is trying to do. Everyone who has read the graphic novel can attest to its astounding philosophical statements and other strong messages concerning how humans behave, and film is not an appropriate medium for relaying those ground-breaking principles. Alan Moore knew this and has thusly refuse to have his name attached to Snyders work. In order for this to be entertaining, much of the intellectual jargon had to be stripped, action scenes lengthened, and the whole ending changed. Do not think that the ending needed to be changed because it was too graphic or the budget was not large enough to encompass such an awesome scene, but the bulk of viewers would not see past the special effects and truly understand the meaning of it. If anything, the fanboy geeks, if they know what they are seeing, and if they truly understand the platform of the Watchmen graphic novel, then they should see Snyders adaptation as a bastardized version of the story, which any film version of any book ought to be ultimately anyway. This is not to say that I won't enjoy the movie as much as anyone, but the graphic novel will always be superior to any adaptation in any other media.

I really want to see how this pans out.

Ramez on Jan 20, 2009


Jesus Christ, can they go a month without putting out a trailer or whatever.

adrian on Jan 20, 2009


this looks fucking great,it would be hard to take more money then x-men origins wolverine but i hope it fucking does,there will be slight changes to the graphic novel but there was changes to the lord of the ring books so they could be filmed and fans didn't mind that.the watchmen clock is counting down can't fucking wait.

omg!!!! and yeah, i'm guessing the end is pretty different from the ending of the GNs with Dr.Manhattan exploding in the middle of Manhattan rather than the alien squid! looks awesome,can't wait for march!

F.C. on Jan 20, 2009


I agree with #6 and #9 on this. Weak sauce, man. Weak.

Movie Fan on Jan 20, 2009


#14 Boris, if I understand what you are saying, I agree. To make Watchmen palatable to the great unwashed, they'll turn it into just another superhero-action-special effects fest, eliminating the complex ideas woven into the original by Alan Moore. I assume Moore, whose best work I greatly admire, accepts payment for all the film adaptations of his work that he hates (deservedly so, as in LoEG). I mean, he should. Hopefully, this fate will not doom Watchmen. The Dark Knight proves that a fairly sophisticated comic-book movie can be a hit.
