WATCHMEN SEEN @ CINEMA EXPO, AMSTERDAM


Seen @ Cinema EXPO in Amsterdam with original pics via Film1.nl = posters utilizing the character shots from way back when - within the layout of a by-now "classic" Watchmen comicbook cover - last seen as a promo-poster featuring original-series artist Dave Gibbons @ SDCC'07 ... and something tells me these may end up as actual (multiple) covers for the inevitably comicbook-adaptation of the movie (quite the ironic-cycle too, innit? "Adapted from the feature film which was adapted by the comicbook!" ... heh) - which of coz, reads very cynical of me, but hey, even tho the images are used-to-death by now (IMHO) they still rawk and let's hope the movies does as well, innit? *yumz*

VIDEO JOURNAL #3: STUNTS

I swear, all the while looking at the 3rd Video Journal for the WATCHMEN Movie currently on CHUD.com - John Parr's St. Elmo's Fire was playing in my headspace (most probably becoz I'd always mix up "Man In Motion" with "Man On Fire" - dun ask) - becoz that's what literally happened = a stuntman was set on fire, in the prison riot scene, where Rorschach would eventually face the midget mob boss "Big Figure" ... yah.
