Latest Watchmen Video Diary Online
Make your own Owl Ship

07 August 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Yahoo

Yahoo has the fifth installment of the Watchmen video diaries, which you can see it here.

This one covers the creation of Nite Owl's (Patrick Wilson) Owl Ship, which has become one of the icons of the graphic novel. The next Watchmen video diary will be online on September 6.

In other Watchmen news, we can now confirm that the scenes witnessed by the chosen few at this year's Comic-Con will be getting their first (and probably only) UK screening at Empire's Movie-Con, which takes place at the BFI Southbank on the weekend of August 16-17. Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons will also be attending to introduce the clips and to take your questions on the greatest comic book ever written. To secure one of the last few tickets available for Movie-Con, head to the BFI website here.

L: John Firth You can't directly translate page to screen, it just doesn't work. Seems he's having a good go though: to comic comparisonquote]ORIGINAL: John Firth ... Even if the film blows, it should introduce more people to the masterwork it came from. eems it's done that already...  I picked this little snippet from the web (can't remember the link now, just Google 'Watchmen Sales' - that's what I did): ers Weekly reports today that DC Comics has had to print 300,000 More

Why are people expecting to see the comic on screen? It's an adaptation. You can't directly translate page to screen, it just doesn't work. Some things have to change in order for it to work. Even if the film blows, it should introduce more people to the masterwork it came from. Visually this looks the shit so far. I just hope the content matches the visuals, and is also the shit, rather than the shits. More

RE:
What, pray tell, isn't 'quite right'? The movie and the book are two very different things.  That doesn't mean that an excellent movie can't be made though. I swear, there is no pleasing some people.  Would you have rather had the version where at the end Rorschach, Nite Owl and Silk Spectre suddenly materialise in 'real world' New York?  Would you rather have the 'modernised' Greengrass version, which would have borne very little resemblance to the novel at all?

There's just something about this all that isn't... quite right. i think at this point I'm resigned to it not being as good as the book, just hope it's a decent film nonetheless. More

RE: Cool
I'm totally sold by this.  Love the GN, had it for years and read it every year or so. Zack Snyders done an amazing job so far and I have total faith that this will be the absolute Uber masked adventurer film.   The level of detail I've seen so far in these production vids is astounding.  The trailer is great as well.  I cannot bloody wait!   More
