Watchmen Principal Photography has Wrapped

Principal Photography has now wrapped for Watchmen. The film is now officially in post-production. Below follows the first image from a finished scene in Watchmen (effects implemented and everything). The film is shaping up to be amazing. It is based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alan Moore (of From Hell, V For Vendetta, etc fame). Below follows the premise of Watchmen courtesy of Wikipedia.

“In an alternate 1985 where superheroes exist, tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union are at an all time high. The vigilante Rorschach is investigating the murder of the Comedian, and uncovers a plot to discredit and murder various heroes. Rorschach discovers a far wider ranging conspiracy involving his colleagues’ past which could completely change the course of history.”

It’s incredible to see just how far the production has come along with Watchmen. And the finalized image alone makes me want to go back and re-read the graphic novel yet again. Zack Snyder and the rest of the cast and crew involved in Watchmen all seem highly motivated towards bringing the fans the film adaption they have been waiting for. Yes, there will be slight changes here and there. But all are vital in bringing Watchmen to the big screen. My skepticism is nearly gone based on what we’ve seen thus far. I’ll need a trailer to fully confirm and set aside my doubts. The film hits on March 6th, 2009. Still have a little more than a year to go as the countdown to Watchmen continues onward…
