::: Watch the Trailer at the Official Site

Have you heard yet about the trailer for the Watchmen? Apparently it’s out and there isn’t a man, woman, child, shark or monkey living on Earth that hasn’t seen it. There probably isn’t a more anticipated and buzzed about film coming out in 2009 than this one. Everything so far has looked great for it, but it will be how it all comes together into one cohesive narrative that will ultimately sink or swim it. It will be interesting to see where Zack Snyder translates the testosterone of 300 into superhero adrenaline rush for the Watchmen.

SYNOPSIS

Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi.

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion–a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers–Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching the Watchmen?
