i could nit pick i guess, but i'll just let all my worries brew till i see more of things like the main cast in cosume and the like.

i do like the 2nd picture though, even if maybe they have maybe gone a little ott with how dirty they've made everything, i thought watchmen ny was meant to be a bit cleaner than regular ny... ok i'm nit picking anyway, i'll shut up.

just brew.

I am cautiously optimistic.

Chaltab - November 28, 2007 03:18 AM (GMT)
Certainly one of the most detailed physical sets I've seen in a while.

Alabaster - November 28, 2007 04:03 AM (GMT)
Well, at least the movie will look good. The rest remains to be seen.

ROBRAM89 - November 28, 2007 08:15 PM (GMT)
...this bodes well.

The script can't be as bad as the previous one.

fitandhappy - November 29, 2007 01:50 AM (GMT)
...don't tempt fate dear.

[SPOILER]
in this script they still kill adrian, which i'm unsure about, though i don't know weather they kill him "in time" or not, both would be stupid, but one is definately supider[/SPOILER]

really like the look of the dollar bill costume, period perfect.

I do believe you can see Rorschach there in the first pic.

And now...Fox is suing Warner Bros. over the movie.

i knew the costumes were going to blow, why go to all the extreem detail with the sets but then do this? at least rorschach looks about the same.

Scott - March 6, 2008 03:28 PM (GMT)
What are you talking about? The costumes are excellent.

Chaltab - March 6, 2008 03:48 PM (GMT)
I like the Ozy, Night Owl, and Comedian ones. I think Rorschach coat needs to be longer, and I'm waiting to make my judgment on Silk Specter until I can see it when it's not mostly obscured by her hair.

Night Owl is pretty much a perfect translation of his comic suit into the Batman Begins style of comic costume.

oncedead - March 6, 2008 04:44 PM (GMT)
Silk Spectre's costume could be more stripperific, but I like the rest of the costumes.

Soopie - March 6, 2008 06:18 PM (GMT)
I've begun to read Watchmen, and it's one of the best American comic books I've read (although it's not too hard since I rarely read American comics because the "too-many-superhero-adventures" aspect is not very attractive)... the dark atmosphere despite the colorful art, very deep backstories, the realistic touch to the superhero mythos (yes, it's not fun to fight hidden organized crime instead of costumed supervillains!) and others...

Well, interesting to see that the decors look very good, and so do the costumes.

It'll probably receive a "V for Vendetta" treatment (message/context adjusted to contemporary politics, the Bush-terrorism-Iraq-etc stuff and if somebody points that out, they'll be replied it can't be because the comic book is from the 80's...).

fitandhappy - March 6, 2008 07:16 PM (GMT)
my basic gripe is with the amount of black going on, ok with the comedian (though i can't see the flag referenceing shoulders, which i'll miss if its not there), but i'm far less sure about the others.

its just such an easy short cut, "this is a serious movie, see, everyones in black and shit so its all moody".

That was due to V's directors, who aren't in charge of this.

Nite Owl's suit is 100% brown and bronze. Ozy's is silver, purple, and what appears to be gray. Rorschach's costume is exactly the same as it is in the book. Silk Spectre is indeed wearing black, but it's black and yellow latex, which isn't really dark and moody. It looks sort of like The Bride's tracksuit. You may have a point about the color black on Comedian, but if I remember right his costume in the book for the Vietnam era was pretty dark too.

Nite Owl's costume has a zipper on the front, and shows off a beer gut. Silk Spectre's costume appears to be a silly update on the silly costume she wore in the book. Ozy is sporting lilac trunks. These aren't exactly the markings of a serious business movie.

I like how Laurie's face is accurate. Or is that just concept art, not the actor they're casting?

final actors. the movie's done filming from what I heard.

and I hadn't noticed that dang zipper, that makes it even better. I'm surprised that no one's complained here about ozy's rubber nipples or how the black costume is a big tip off that he's "evil", my big two problems with it. I'm also hooping Roscharch's mask's ink moves but won't mind if it does not.

What are you talking about? It wasn't long in the comic and a long coat definately wouldn't suit him; he's rough and tough street avenger. He doesn't need anything billow behind him to look badass and if it were too long, it would get on his way.

I like most of the costumes; Ozymandias brings too much Batman Forever vibes for my tastes, though. Too much glitter. It would have perhaps been nice if they had emphasized the fact that these costumes (apart from Silk Spectre, ofcourse) are supposed to be practical when facing gangs of armed thugs a bit more, but I can live with this. And for all it's worth, Nite Owl, Comedian, Roscharch and Silk Spectre look great.

the emo eye make up doesn't help that either.


i was kinda looking forward to all the bright garish costumes (perticually adrians, which was quite gloruisly camp, where now its fetish, and thats just not the same), so seeing them crank down the brightness and contrast so much is just a dissapointment for me.

Yes there was.

If you say so.

I guess I'm just mis-remembering, it's been over two years since I read the comic. I didn't mean a LOT longer, just a bit. I definitely don't think there needs to be any billowing. Billowing would look retarded with a guy like Rorschach.

Looks like it ends a bit above the knee.

QUOTE (MTV)
Jackie Earle Haley rang us up just as filming wrapped to give us his enthusiastic thoughts on the production. “Zack [Snyder] did such an awesome job. Matthew [Goode] is just awesome. Malin [Ackerman] was incredible. Patrick [Wilson] is amazing. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is cool as beans,” the actor enthused. “Everybody was just awesome!”

The awesomeness as just begun. While shooting has officially wrapped, much work remains to be done in post-production, Haley said, to more delicately bring the iconic panels to life.

Haley, for one, can’t wait to see what Snyder comes up with next.

“We all want to see this movie. Getting to sit behind that monitor and see shot after shot…it was really looking cool,” Haley exclaimed. “Everything that Zack was doing was just so inspired by the book. All of the elements from production design, to costuming, to makeup - it was looking really badass. I can’t wait to see what he does with it with all the CG work that has to be done.”

Part of that, of course, is Rorschach’s mask itself, a moving kaleidoscope of ink blots that needs to be digitally inserted. Of the mask, Haley said wearing it was “incredibly motivating for the character.”

“It was incredibly confining,” he said. “It was get warm and sometimes fuzzy in there.”

But don’t be fooled into thinking that the entire look is CG, Haley warned.

“There’s a lot of real set work in it,” he insisted. “They’ll stick green screens in here and there to make buildings taller, but I think it’s going to be unique. There was a lot more green screen work in ‘300.’”

Deaths Head II - March 8, 2008 02:09 AM (GMT)
I find all the outfits to be awesome, but then again I'm not that picky. Comedian and Niteowl couldn't have been any better for an adaptation like this, and Rorschach is perfect. I don't even mind Ozymandia's look that much.

The one I really want to see is Dr. Manhatten, because he seems like he will be the weirdest to see live.

Soopie - March 10, 2008 05:42 PM (GMT)
Does fabric like Rorschach's mask exist in real life? With black goo constantly moving?

I remember mousepads that had something like that.
