Who Watches the “Watchmen” Trailer?

July 19, 2008

You do, now, and you’ll also see it at the front of “The Dark Knight”. Thanks to our advanced-screening status, we didn’t get to see this trailer on the big screen. On the upside, we now have yet another reason to see “The Dark Knight” again.

This is obviously a trailer meant to show you just how good this movie is going to look, and that’s great. Given the source material [of which we, as a couple, are huge fans], it looks like the director and the visual team in general have really put a lot of thought and time into making whole pages into moving pictures.  It’s unfortunate that the song playing over the whole trailer [“The Beginning of the End is the Beginning” by Smashing Pumpkins] was used heavily in “Batman and Robin”, but it does fit very well with the overall look and feel of the trailer.

We still can’t say for certain if “Watchmen”, the movie, is going to live up to its deserved reputation as a piece of fantastic graphic fiction, but so far we’re sold.

  1. I actually had the Batman and Robin soundtrack and I remember that Billy Corgan crooner quite well 🙂

    I certainly hope this movie isn’t just riding the hype.
