No More Masks - Another Awesome Watchmen Poster!
Thought that final poster was really going to be the final poster you'd see for Watchmen? Of course not! We're not sure where this came from, or even what it really is, but our friends at Trailer Addict sent over another awesome Watchmen poster (of sorts) that I've just got to feature today. It could even be fan made, and if it really is, I don't care, because it still looks fantastic. I would rather have one of these posters hanging on my wall than even that final one. Something about the dark gritty look and the yellow poster in the background and everything about this just kicks some serious ass. This is easily one of my favorites!
If you haven't already seen it yet, check out the awesome official website: WatchmenMovie.com
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!

This is not fan-made, but it's not an official poster either. It's actually a bootleg scan from the "Watchmen: Art of the Film" book that's coming out on Feb. 10th. It's a piece of concept art.

Quite good. Just want to see the film now, they had me at 'it's a film called Watchmen'.

I just wish they would drop, " From the visionary director of 300" line. It doesn't need that.

sad thing is Snyder is the most famous person in the movie to casual fans i think director of 300 will catch there eye more than anything

Malin Åkermans caharcter doesn't really have a mask 🙂

Why would the poster say "No More Masks"... and then have a bunch of pictures of guys wearing masks? 😛 Vic

#7, No More Masks was a slogan used on signs during protests against the super heros in the comic.

i think it could be fan-made cause they wouldnt say no more masks and then put two unmasked heroes on the poster. it still looks good though, and if they put half as much effort into the movie as they do with these posters, this film will definitely kick some ass

reminds me of the 'days of future past' Xmen cover http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/0/77/129185-184444-days-of-future-past_super.jpg

A gorgeous poster. If it is indeed fanmade kudos to them. I love all the little details including The Comedian's pin in the lower right hand corner. This is absoutley stunning.

Agrees with #9 although it looks good.

Unfortantly the promotion HAS to have the "from the director of 300" due to the fact most of the public has no bloody idea who the Watchman are. I know it's sad but true, 87% of the population have no clue. The avid movie fan has seen the trailors and all, but half of them just don't get it. And Watchman is going to kick their collective asses! After the release I predict the 2nd week receipts will be greater due to the buzz and word of mouth and the usual annoying media services. I don't know Nate. just my thoughts, but I agree with you.

This is going to be a great movie. I can't wait. but i have to.

Great poster, but you guys are right, the 300 tag line is lame. And to top it off, it's throwing off the whole grid of the picture, with the movie credits cleverly following the same plane as the mugshots. Every bit of text, even the awesome coming soon tag, is on that wall/poster. Given that the tag line exists "outside" the poster's reality, fine, but italicized backwards? Wasn't Dawn of the Dead way cooler anyway? I'd like to see it say "From Zack Snyder" if anything, but I guess even less people recognize that name than the Watchmen. Oh well, better than most big movie posters for sure, I'm there.

Thanks, Nate... that occurred to me after I made my comment. 🙂

#9 "masks" is a term used in the novel for superheros by the public. Although some of them do not have actual masks like Dr. Manhattan. So by the slogan saying "No More Masks" they mean they do not want superheros anymore. If you read the novel it would make sense.

Awesome, just the yellow poster would be enough, but I like the additional touch.
Ryan on Feb 2, 2009
I think what is sad is the word visionary serving as a adjective to Zack Snyder!
Vitor on Feb 2, 2009
Sweet poster. But who is the guy in the lower right hand corner?
Ajax on Feb 2, 2009
it is concept art of a poster that did'nt make the cut and the last one is nite owl II in his snow suit
nelson on Feb 2, 2009
Do we get news about this movie everyday? Talk about over exposed. I hope it's as good as they're making it out to be.

^hahah SNL. i saw that one. I'm just confused as to who is to the right of night owl.
Dan W on Feb 2, 2009
@26, It's also Night Owl -- just in snow garb, as seen in the Antarctica scene excerpt shown in the trailers.
Miscreantik on Feb 4, 2009
And no one mentions the time on the clock? For shame.
