Who watches the Watchmen?

I just came across this poster of the upcoming Watchman film. While I, like the rest of you am disturbed by the reports that the film may be held up due to some litigation over the distribution of it, I am ever hopeful that cooler heads (and deep pockets) will prevail, and the film will be out on time.

Beyond that I really have nothing to report, other than to hook you to a site that is comparing the film's trailer to panels from the comic itself, an (from what we can see) it seems that the film is following in the footsteps of the comic. This can only be good.

However, there are currently reports that the ending of the film has been altered from the comic (I can’t imagine why).

Put this firmly into the "might not be true" category of your brains, and then take it with an additional grain of salt. I hesitate to even spread this further because it is unverified, but I think it's worth discussing. And hey, maybe someone who caught the movie might weigh in.

Needless to say, I’m hoping this report is true. In the mean time, I’m loving this Lego Watchman poster.

The first poster is superb and the Lego Dr. Manhattan poster is AMAZING! Heck, I'd soooooo cop Lego Watchmen toys in a second.
