It's a WATCHMEN extravaganza !!

So, has been posting set visits and behind-the-scenes chronicles from WATCHMEN over the past few months since it went into production. WATCHMEN was originally a graphic novel written by the amazing Allan Moore and illustrated by equally amazing Dave Gibbons. I first read part of the graphic novel when I was younger, about 6 years ago, and was completely lost. When I finally revisited it about 3 years ago, I was blown away. There is a reason why the film has been through so many directors and writers. WATCHMEN is much bigger than everything else. There are not many storylines and plots that I keep in my personal pantheon, but this is definitely up there. Head over to that official site and read a synopsis before heading to Barnes & Noble or Borders, or Amazon and to buy this because it's absolutely worth it.
Oh right, the post. Ok so, Zack Snyder, the man/director making the film adaptation a reality, has been doing his best to update the site with little tidbits from the set and that includes short Video Journals which will lead up to the film's release on March 6th, 2009. I bring you today, part 3 of the 12 part series which is respectively titled, "Stunts." Very cool stuff, very cool stuff indeed. Continue reading below for the first two entries in the Video Journal series as well as character photos and other photos. It's a WATCHMEN extravaganza. Enjoy.
