Watching The Watchmen

I must say that after watching the trailer of Zack Snyder's Watchmen I found myself stunned.

Snyder's vision of the seminal uber comic is not only true to the source but fucking beautiful. After hearing great things about Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight (many have stated it's the best comic book movie ever), it seems that Snyder is taking no prisoners. In fact the films scope is looking HUGE.

I've warmed to the director after his testosone fuelled mini epic (do they exisit?) 300. In fact that movie and the look of how Watchmen is shaping has made me consider re-watching the dawn of the dead remake again* (I think I'm the only person in the world that despies that movie).

So here's hoping in 2009 is the year of the watchmen!
