Watchmen behind-the-scenes

The trailer is out for the Zack Synder The Watchmen movie, coming in 2009 and the website is up. On the website, they have awesome videos are the production. If you know the story, they aren't too spoiler-y. They are basically about the color scheme, costumes, and a stunt guy burning himself. It is really interesting to me that the original graphic novel used secondary colors like orange, green, and purple, in place of primary colors as regular comic did and the movie is reflecting that. Rope of Silicon compares some shots from the trailer to scenes in the book. So far, fans are excited. Entertainment Weekly covers them this week and I squealed when I saw the cover. I think it is important they point out early on that the movie is no ordinary superhero movie to the public.
