New Watchmen Trailer
My unsolicited thoughts: Generally I liked the trailer, even with the slow-mo effects that I had apprehensions about. Someone who's never read the book would now have a better idea of what it's about. There still some details being omitted like the older generation of heroes or the fact that the story takes place in 1985. Some people have raised concerns about the way some characters' voices sound. Clearly these people have never before seen an adaptation of a book they've read. No boys & girls, they can't replicate all those details that exist only in your head. The characters are actually referring to themselves as the "Watchmen"? Where's Captain Metropolis in that group photo? Isn't he the one who formed the Crimebusters? Although I guess they're callng the team the Watchmen now. That's the music from Koyaanisqatsi. There's no escaping Phillip Glass.
