The trailer looks amazing. Snyder has managed to get the look of the comic book down perfectly. Dr. Manhatten looks fdashjfiojhgdsf, and the creation of his palace on Mars looks sdfjhhsdajhfdsjf, too. I always thought Nite Owl was a bit of a twit-ta-woo in the comic book, but he looks Batman-esque in the trailer. GHJhfdjfhdsjfhdskjffh.

Watch the trailer here, though:

http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=22952

It's much better quality.

PS. What's the tune? Sounds like The Smashing Pumpkins...

The trailer looks good. Dr. Manhattan looks far better than I could have imagined, and I totally geeked out when they showed the last shot of him on Mars. That was awesome! I just hope Snyder doesn't do a lot of the slow down/speed up like he did in 300.

If Zack snyder does indeed make a good film of this comic from Alan Moore its gonna shut down every else that said it was impossible to adapt.

It's not, because that's the most it could ever possibly be; a good film.

Even if it's an excellent film, it won't be an excellent adaptation, because that's more or less impossible if you've actually read the story.

I won't be going to see it because I don't believe it's ok for Hollywood to continue doing this.

You haven't even read the book, have you, Kazenji?

Oh, and the song is The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning by The Smashing Pumpkins, Krunk'd.

This is true. While I was all giddy watching the trailor and telling my wife how I was definately going to see it, she asked me what the hell was it about. All she could determine was that there were a bunch of superhero type people running around.

She also asked me who the blue guy was and what can he do. I told her his name was Dr. Manhatten and he can pretty much do anything. She didnt get it.

Meh, I honestly think the books are overrated. They were probably great when they first came out but they don't live up to the hype for new readers.

You just answered your own question didn't you? "Why can't it be excellent? It could be good.".

Even that is arguable. If you're asking why it can't be an excellent adaptation, you either haven't read, nor understood, the book.

Adapting things to movie that were not meant to be adapted to movie. It's not like it was a book that would work well as a movie. One of the CREATOR'S aims was to make it impossible to reproduce in cinema, to make it appreciated as, and stay as, a book.

Basically, it's not ok for them to ignore a creator's wishes in aid of getting money.

Multiply that by however many the general public is.

You're projecting. I know a few people who have read it after hearing me rant about the movie, and they've immediately accepted the level of praise it has got, and why a movie is ridiculous.

You, in all seriousness, probably don't understand it. So like many who don't understand things, you brand it as "overrated".

It wasn't meant for certain people, that's not to say you aren't smart, you probably just don't understand it. It wasn't meant for you.

It's not hate it or love it, it's understand it fully or not at all. That's what determines how you feel about the book. If you're not into that kind of thing, you won't get it, and therefore, you won't like it that much.
