Individual close-ups to 'Watchmen' characters, The Comedian, Dr. Manhattan, Ozymandias, Rorschach, Silk Spectre II and Nite Owl II, have been unearthed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
Warner Bros. Pictures have sent out six brand new character posters of their upcoming adventure fantasy film, "Watchmen", to six different sites, Los Angeles Times, Access Hollywood, USA Today, WiReD, Entertainment Weekly and MTV. Presenting six of the main characters, the posters highlight individually on The Comedian, Dr. Manhattan, Ozymandias, Rorschach, Silk Spectre II and Nite Owl II.
Each of the character posters holds a different tag line supposedly said by the character depicted. In The Comedian's poster from LA Times and posted on the news photo, the headlines read "We're society's only protection", while Silk Spectre II's read, "I am used to going out at 3 A.M. and doing something stupid." Other than those two, Rorschach's poster presents words, "This city is afraid of me. I've seen its true face." The rest can be seen below.
Adapted from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' comic book series of the same title, "Watchmen" follows superhero-turned-vigilante Rorschach as he investigates the murder of his former colleague and discovers much more than a simple homicide case. As he goes on with his investigation, he uncovers the plot to kill and discredit all other superheroes as well as a far more intricate conspiracy involving his colleagues' past which could completely change the course of history.
Starred by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman and Patrick Wilson, the movie is directed by Zack Snyder using script written by David Hayter and Alex Tse. This Warner Bros. film has been enlisted for U.S. theatrical release on March 6, 2009.
