The Trailer is up

I'm dying to know your thoughts, Peter. Though I imagine you're at a movie theater at the moment, and you'll see it on the big screen tonight.

I'm only about a third of the way through the book, but it was way cool to see some of the scenes brought to life.

What do you think of it, Lisa?

I think I like the way Laurie looks in the movie better than I like her in the book. :-) He draws her so she looks a little . . . mannish . . . I dunno. I wish there were more female characters, but I'm not very far in yet!

I just saw the trailer on the IMAX dark knight, actually... and it looks pretty incredible. I was quite impressed with all their choices so far - asthetically, character wise, and so forth. It looks like they're being pretty true to the graphic novel as well.

Zack Snyder, the director, also did 300 which was visually interesting but was lacking a lot in plot for me. He faithfully recreated Frank Miller's comic it was based on, though and the fault for the plot flaws are definitely those of Miller. So I think there's hope.

Loved the portrayal of Dr. Manhattan and the Mars scenes... And the Comedian, and... well I'm excited at any rate!!
