Watchmen Ads.

I know there's a very strong possibility that it'll suck or fall flat, and that to even work remotely on the big screen massive amounts of changes will need to be made but these posters really make me want to see the movie.

I still have problems with Dr. Manhattan's ass. I don't know why. It's very prominent, I guess. I may be a prude.

I think Sally Jupiter's is my favorite of the posters. It's just got some sort of Golden Age-type sass. The pose and expression are very Betty Grable-esque pin up girl to me.

Or maybe Ozymandius's. Just because it is awesome. The others are all great too, of course.

This is probably blasphemy but I think I like them better than the originals, which are good, but don't have the same sense of atmosphere for me.

I'm really excited about the movie.

    Yeah, the Sally Jupiter ad was the one that struck me too. It looks *perfect* - it's a fully realized flesh-and-blood version of a vintage Silk Spectre pin-up. And it actually helps me feel better about Laurie's costume - it's so different from her mother's that it feels like a big part of her rebellion.

    That said, I'm still not convinced this movie will capture the substance of Watchmen.

    I think the difficulty is that, in the end, Watchmen is so dependant on its medium.

    But from interviews and such, it does seem like Zach Snyder knows that, so I'm interested to see what kinds of things he'll do to make it more suited for a movie.
