I saw the trailer before TDK. It looked INCREDIBLE. I can't wait to see what they do with this movie. They certainly have chosen a good story to base it off of. If done correctly, this could be a fantastic movie.

Awesome trailer indeed, one of the best I've ever seen & fantastic song choice as well imo. I love the Smashing Pumpkins, moreso in their older days, but that song owns. Fits so nicely with the trailer here.

According to the latest I heard from AOTS (Attack Of The Show), apparently Fox is trying to stop this from coming out.

People had been telling me for the last couple of years that I needed to read Watchmen. Sadly I was never that into comics, so I wasn't really aware of it until befriended people that were.

I finally decided to buy the book and read it when I saw that amazing trailer before The Dark Knight (I had no idea they had actually finished the film, I thought it was forever in hiatus).

I finished it last night and wow. Just wow. I've been thinking about it all day and I am even more excited about the movie, especially since every thing I'm reading points to this being a fantastic film.

Ruling could put 'Watchmen' in jeopardy

http://news.yahoo.co...watchmen_suit_2

Thu Dec 25, 2:15 pm ET

LOS ANGELES – A federal judge has ruled that 20th Century Fox owns a copyright interest in "Watchmen," potentially jeopardizing the superhero movie's March release.

U.S. District Judge Gary Feess of Los Angeles disclosed the decision in a written order Wednesday, The New York Times and Variety reported.

"Watchmen," based on the popular graphic novel of the same name, was shot by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. Fox sued to prevent its release and Feess had set a Jan. 20 trial, but reversed course in writing that Fox at least owns the right to distribute the film.

Fox claims it never fully relinquished its rights to the story from a deal made in the late 1980s. Warner spokesman Scott Rowe declined to comment on the latest ruling.
