'Watchmen' Teaser Trailer is Slow Motioney, Smashing Pumpkinsey

July 17, 2008

I was just reading this interview with Alan Moore--in which he re-affirms his feelings that he hates Hollywood, hates DC, and thinks Watchmen shouldn't be made into a film, particularly by someone who made such a "racist," "homophobic," and "sublimely stupid" film as 300--and it got me thinking that maybe a Watchmen movie really is a bad idea. It was a story meant to be told on the page, and maybe it should remain there. Then Juan sent over the link to the new Watchmen teaser, and I was like, "Holy shit, it's living, breathing Watchmen characters! This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen."

Then I started noticing Zack Snyder's ubiquitous slow motion shots, and christ, a remix of the Smashing Pumpkins song from Batman and Robin? That's here? We've given Watchmen to someone willing to let it be associated with Batman and Robin. I just don't know about this.

UPDATE: Fixed the trailer, watch it here.
