ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! talked exclusively to director Zack Snyder, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Malin Akerman, Patrick Wilson and Carla Gugino about the highly-anticipated graphic novel adaptation Watchmen, opening in conventional and IMAX theaters on March 6th. You can watch all the interviews below!
A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen 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?
