While people are still buzzing around the using of The Smashing Pumpkins' 1997 track, "The Beginning is the End is the Beginning", in "Watchmen" teaser trailer, director Zack Snyder opens up about the music to be featured in the upcoming comic book adaptation. Revealing about the vibe he wants for the film, the filmmaker confessed that fans will be presented with instantly-evocative period pieces.

By stating that the mastermind behind "300" meant that the movie will have songs from Bob Dylan to Nat King Cole as well as from Jimi Hendrix to Nena. "We have Hendrix's 'All Along the Watchtower,' 'The Times They Are A-Changin' the Bob Dylan song, [Simon & Garfunkel's] 'The Sound of Silence'," he said in an interview with MTV. "[We've also got Nena's] '99 Luftballoons,' the German version of course. And 'Unforgettable' by Nat King Cole. And then there's a lot of others, but it's that kind of vibe."

Explaining more about Cole's "Unforgettable" track, the 42-year-old gushed that the song will be heard over the scene in which Edward Blake a.k.a Comedian is being beaten out by Adrian Veidt who is known as Ozymandias. "It's actually in Blake's fight with Adrian, because what happens is he's watching TV and he turns on a Nostalgia ad, and the Nostalgia ad has 'Unforgettable' on it," so claimed Snyder.

"Nostalgia is Veidt's perfume. And if you look at the graphic novel, that song is mentioned in reference to the perfume, and I thought that would be cool. I shot my own commercial for Nostalgia...Blake is watching that when Adrian kicks the door in and starts beating the crap out of him."

"Watchmen" stars Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode and Carla Gugino. It follows Rorschach as he investigates the murder of his former colleague and unveils a plot to discredit and murder all superheroes. The action fantasy for Warner Bros. Pictures is scheduled to be released on March 6, 2009.

Rainbow Country, I don't know maybe someone who hasn't already read the comic wants to see the movie nonetheless? That's a fucking HUGE spoiler. It can easily ruin the film. Who wrote this is not a good journalist.

Guys c'mon. Seriously, you see comedian fight the "unknown" assassin. You just know it had to be one of the "heroes" 20 minutes into the movie you know who the speedy guy is... like go see the movie and pay attention, you'll know what's going on even if you haven't read the graphic novel...
posted by lmfao on Mar 05, 2009
so the director ruined for everyone who hasn't read it? It's a good thing he did read it, or we wouldn't get to see it... grow up and try reading, you'd miss less and probably complain less too.

Unprofessional journalism. Truly amateur. You just blew the plot, you doorknob. Not everyone read the graphic novel. Time to consider another line of work. I hope your bosses consider your stupidity.

dude, you just spilled the climax of the damn film by revealing who the killer of the COmedian was! I read the book, and that was one major plot twist...

what are you all retarded? you see him die in the fucking trailer, its' not a spoiler. it's why the whole thing happens. the comedian's murder is like....OHHHHHHHHHHH shit....he did reveal that Veidt did it...so that is a spoiler...oh well...sorry to everyone who hasn't read it ....that sucks.

Hardly plot spoilers considering most people know the story anyway. Read the grapic novel? Duh.

wow. I think I'll go ape-shit over someone talking about their own film in an interview. Or maybe I'll just understand that the film will last more than 5 minutes.
posted by puppetdoug on Dec 22, 2008
you should really take this down... even from watching the trailers it ruins what's going on. It's kind of irresponsible to leave this up, and to be honest, for Zack to have mentioned this... but in an interview about a soundtrack without any warnings? WOW.
