    looks weird, but that's probably because I don't know the story at all. I'll read on it a little

    Front page says it's not ready till Friday morning. It must have been a careless leak.

    same for me.
    EDIT: It works here: http://gizmodo.com/5026434/nerdgasm-watchmen-trailer-hits-web-a-day-early

    TBH i have no idea what the watchmen is, but it looks superb.

    Just having a quick read of wiki it seems like a solid story but its weird to see a superhero movie but the hero's have no power's apart from one of them.

    Also can anyone figure out what music is playing in the trailer.

    Watchmen is a fantastic read and a must for any comic book fan. I'm pretty happy that the from the trailer it looks to have the tone of the novel correct. It's a complex story and I'm not too sure how well it play as a film.

    Comic book outfits like that don't work well in a serious live action film IMO. But other than that, it looks really cool.

    You NEED to read the comic, it is absolutely awesome.

    Personally, I love the costumes - especially as, if we're true to the book, then by the time the movie starts all the heroes are retired anyway.

    Glad it wasn't just me that pulled out that app to do exactly that.

    I must say the trailer looks rather good though I know nothing of the back story it seems like it will be a movie to go see for sure.

    ::edit:: lol, for that album iTunes want £99! Sure there are 114 tracks but still!

    Watchmen should be considered mandatory reading in schools. Possibly one of the greatest graphic novels ever written.

    Given that 300 was virtually scene-for-scene from the original comic, I've got high hopes for this one.

    Now that Batman's here, we've got something new to fixate on :D

    The song is "The beginning is the end is the beginning" by the Smashing Pumpkins the B side from the single "The end is the beginning is the end" originally on the Batman and Robin soundtrack (I've got the single in front of me).
