We Watch The Watchmen!

Watchmen is in the can – so to speak. I never thought I’d speak or type those words to anyone, ever. Yet here we are. 2.20.08 and Watchmen is that much closer to coming out. Below is a blog that Zack Snyder wrote, along with a screen shot from the film, and the comic comparison that it goes with!

That’s a wrap! I promise to refrain from getting too sentimental, but I want to take a moment to say thanks to the Watchmen cast & crew. You have all been phenomenal. It has been quite an experience and I could not have done it without the hard work and determination of each and every one of you. A film adaptation of Watchmen has been in the works for almost 20 years and thanks to you, it is finally in the can. It has been such a pleasure to be surrounded by a team that is so dedicated and that has given 110% each and every day. I am extremely grateful for the level of attention to detail put forth by each department to capture all of the texture that makes Watchmen the incredibly unique property that it is. Although we still have a lot of work to do in post, the shoot has been an experience I will not soon forget!

Thank you, Zack

P.S. While I’m in the process of thanking people, I figure it’s a good time to say thanks to the Watchmen fans for all of their continued support. Since the crew got wrap gifts, I figured you deserved a little something as well. So, to bring a little closure to the previous “Storyboard” blog, I’ve included a frame from the film that shows what it looks like when it all comes together. Thanks!

I just had a geekgasm. No, seriously.

  1. That movie still is pure NERDVANA! Alan Moore, you are a personal hero of mine, but sorry — I’m gonna see this flick the second it’s out. Badass!

  2. I dunno which horsemen of the apocalypse this is, but I’m pretty sure it’s an omen of the end times when this movie AND the Indy movie hit the streets within a year of one another…

    But I gotta say it’s WORTH IT!
