25 Minutes of 'Watchmen' Footage Screened
Selected press have been given the chance to watch about 25 minutes of "Watchmen" on Wednesday, October 1 at Warner Bros. studio lot in West Hollywood and they are sharing out what they have seen. Introduced by director Zack Snyder, the footage opened with opening credit sequence where the footage moves from the classic smiley face button-pinned to a man selling newspapers on the street.
Then, viewers were brought into Edward Blake's apartment in which Blake, a.k.a. Comedian, can be seen sitting at home alone in the final moments of his life. After he changes a press show to a film that plays the song "Unforgettable", a masked assailant breaks in and fights Blake in a number of slow-motion shots. In the end of the fight, losing Blake crashes through the window and falls to his death on the pavement below followed with the opening credit.
Accompanied by Bob Dylan's song, "The Times, They Are A'Changin'", the footage takes viewers inside the whole history of superheroes with many shots representing an alternate take on real-life historical events, such as Doctor Manhattan shakes hands with President Kennedy, Comedian assassinates Kennedy and Ozymandias stands outside Studio 54. Then, it continues by showing the condition 30 years later with a store window spraypainted "Who watches the Watchmen?" gets shattered by a molotov cocktail.
The scene following that reveals the origin of Doctor Manhattan as a blue, glowing God-like force through his inner monologue and flashbacks. Other scene displayed is the one that features Nite Owl and second Silk Spectre, Laurie, aboard Nite Owl's ship discussing how to rescue Rorschach from the maximum security prison. The full description of the footage can be read at Coming Soon.
During the presentation, Snyder also revealed that "Watchmen" will take as long as 2 hours and 45 minutes of screening time. He also expects IMAX release, but ruled out a possibility of sequel stating, "No chance of a sequel or prequel or 'Watchmen Babies' or anything like that." Starring Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and many others, the flick is set to come out on March 6, 2009.
