Geekpost: Watchmen Still Images

You read (superhero) comics but never read Watchmen? Go back to school, because really, you weren't that good in comics. From the director of Dawn of the Dead (remake) and 300, Zack Snyder takes Alan Moore's legendary Watchmen - the only comic book ever committed to Time Magazine's "the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present". And just recently, Zack put the latest stills from the film which scheduled to hit the theater exactly one year from now.

On the stills, we see Silk Spectre (whom i don't remember being so hot in the comic), Nite Owl, Ozymandias, Rorschach, and my favorite shot, The Comedian who was inline with his character in the comic, looks so mean and wicked.

Watchmen is a dark tale about the aging of superheroes in the brink of a Nuclear War. It's an apocalyptic novel that unlike most comics out there, reading through all 12 issues of it required a patience and determination akin to reading novels. Alan Moore also wrote V for Vendetta, in which he refuted its film adaptation to get associated with him. Most believed that he would do the same with this film. Watchmen is after all, a complex story, much more than V for Vendetta, that i could even started to stretch my imagination so far to squeeze the story into some two hours film. Zack Snyder hadn't disappointed me yet. I mean, i love love love Dawn of the Dead, and 300 is certainly pretty interesting. Therefore, i would very excited with the film and would expecting it with curiosity of a cat. Would love to see how Zack Snyder pulls it through.
