Trailer Park | The Watchmen

18 07 2008

One of the best advantages (and maybe the worst) may be its use in film. In no film is that more apparent than for the trailer for the 2009 sci-fi film, “The Watcher.”

Shown to the public for the first time today prior to “The Dark Knight,” the story is 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. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante, Rorschach, sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.

As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching “The Watchmen?”

Directed by Zack Snyder (“300”), the film stars Patrick Wilson, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Matthew Goode, Stephen McHattie and Carla Gugino

Suffice to say that we can’t WAIT to see this film!

“The Watchmen” opens in theaters on March 6, 2009
