Six character posters for ‘Watchmen’. Who watches the Watchmen? I will be, that’s for certain, on March 6th 2009 along with countless fans of Alan Moore’s brilliant graphic novel. Until then, we can feast our collective eyes on six new “Watchmen” character posters from the highly anticipated Zack Snyder (“300”) film. “Watchmen” stars Jackie Earle Haley (Rorschach), Billy Crudup (Dr. Manhattan), Jeffrey Dean Morgan (The Comedian), Malin Akerman (Silk Spectre II), Matthew Goode (Ozymandias), Patrick Wilson (Nite Owl II) and Carla Gugino (Silk Spectre).
If you’re unfamiliar with the story, Watchmen is a complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the Doomsday Clock – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight.
