I am a big fan of the Watchmen graphic novel. I also think that this trailer makes the movie look awesome. I even like Smashing Pumpkins which was playing during the trailer. But I can imagine the movie to be as good as the graphic novel. The movie has to be 5 hours long. Almost every part of the novel is important to the underlying theme. I’m sure they’ll cut out the Black Freighter and the Owl doesn’t have a belly.
The only ways to redeem itself are Rorschach being as awesome as the novel and there better be an overexaggerated amount of sex/nudity, especially Dr. Manhattans double teaming on Miss Jupiter II.
