TopPremise

In an alternate 1985 Richard Nixon is serving his fifth term as the American President, the most powerful being in the world is a blue-skinned man named Dr. Manhattan and the world stands poised on the brink of nuclear armageddon. At the center of the crisis are a group of costumed superheroes who discover that they are being picked off one by one -- but by who and for what reason?

TopWhat We Think

The most critically acclaimed comic book ever, fans have dreamed of a Watchmen movie while also living in fear of it. Can the graphic novel's deep, multi-layered storyline be successfully adapted to film? Will mainstream audiences be able to see the depth of the characters or simply not get past giggling at their costumes? Based on the trailer and what we saw on the set we believe this one has the chance to be something great.

The Swollen Goiter of God

I'm guessing it was made by folks involved with the movie, but won't be in the movie.
