watchmen

Ooooh! There’s a Watchmen movie and least the teaser GIF on the site bears a strong resemblance to the comics of the same name.

Between this and the fact that people are actually liking the Constantine movie (surely a sign of the apocalypse), perhaps things are looking up for comics movies. After Elektra (sob) I suppose they can’t get much worse.

(I got it from metafilter.)

One thought on “watchmen

  1. No no no no no no no!

    I’d love to see the story put on film. It’s one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century. But a three hour movie is not even enough time to tell even a skeleton of the story. It should be a television miniseries. 12 hours.

    And, for Christ’s sake, look at the GIF! The button should be tited so that the blood stain is pointed to represent 11:55. If they can’t even get the simple stuff right, I’m scared about the deep stuff.

    I can’t even imagine what’s going to happen when the 9/11 victim’s families get wind of this. They protested that Peter Jackson used “hate speech” by calling one of his movies “The Two Towers”. Now imagine a movie where two million innocent New Yorkers are killed and the audience leaves feeling like maybe it wasn’t SUCH a terrible thing.

    And it doesn’t matter if it’s a good movie or not. That’s not John Constantine. I’m pleased to think that Garth Ennis probably got a huge check to have his character’s name used for the title of a movie about a dour brunette Los Angeles cop, but I guess that’s their decision to make.
