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.

Watch the tenth Watchmen video journal - The Minutemen:

Each new video is release on the 6th of every month, so check back again on February 6th for the next Watchmen video journal in the series. Last month: Watchmen Video Journal: Attention to Detail.

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!

Is there some kind of massive petition out there? They can't fuck this up, right? Right? : (

That was awesome. And I had completely forgotten that Solid Snake was doing the screenplay!

Tom Dearsley on Jan 7, 2009

I wanted to see this movie before. But for some reason I REALLY want to see this movie now.

Did anyone noticed that Clay Enos, the film's still photographer was wearing a Sin City shirt?

Roy on Jan 7, 2009


As a collector of golden age comics, it's really cool to see something that looks like they came to life. I hope they do a small segment of The Minutemen in action!

Hooded Justice looks real fat haha. Comedian still looks awesome

The more i see of this behind the scene videos, the more i want to seet this movie. Oh yeah, i hope you go bankrupt and burn in hell Fox studios.

AKUMARED on Jan 7, 2009


I still don't really get why the early Comedian has a mustache, if they were stickin' so close to the comics. Would that've really been too much to ask? Nonetheless, I remain psyched and eager for a favorable ruling. Otherwise, I call for nation-wide riots. Eff it. WORLD-Wide.

Hmmmm on Jan 7, 2009


#13 I think they're doing (or done, by now) "Minutemen" footage for the upcoming mock-umentary "Under The Hood". It would be cool, if they did Saturday matinee serials featuring them. Oh yeah, screw the Fox Studios. 😀

Roy on Jan 8, 2009


if FOX prevents this movie from coming out on 03-06-09 under WB's name, I will NEVER EVER watch another Fox Movie again.
