10 Years of Dr. Manhattan

Now that Warner Brothers is still bringing Watchmen out on March 6th, their viral marketing is kicking off in big ways. We previously revealed the details on the website TheNewFrontiersman.net before, but starting tomorrow they'll launch an extremely awesome, astonishingly geeky viral video of a 1970 NBS Nightly News report looking back at the then 10 year lifespan of Dr. Manhattan. Thankfully the video has showed up early (possibbly planned?) on YouTube and can be seen before. As everyone knows, I love viral marketing, so this just something cool to mention. Only 44 more days until Watchmen!

Watch the NBS Nightly News on Dr. Manhattan:

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!

Wow, that was some cool viral marketing, loving how they caught the 1960s vibe in terms of televising. And that tank scene from the comics looks great on film 🙂

I'm with you Alex, I love this stuff. I hope the viral marketing for Watchmen is as big and detailed as The Dark Knight. I can not wait till March 6th.
