All Eyes on ‘Watchmen’ at UK Premiere

Zack Snyder’s film adaptation of the classic graphic novel Watchmen had its premiere at London’s Odeon in Leicester Square last night.

Stars Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup, Grey’s Anatomy actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jackie Earle Haley, Carla Gugino, Matthew Goode and Malin Akerman were all on hand.

Watchmen tackles the subject of what would happen if superheroes existed in the real world, and is almost as much a mystery and a political thriller as it is superhero action movie.

Director Snyder (300) had his hands full in taking on Alan Moore’s 1986 comic maxi-series  (12 issues), which some felt was unfilmable.

Did Synder succeed in his task? Check out the Watchmen trailer below to formulate your own opinion:
