Exclusive: New Watchmen Production Pics
Doc Manhattan wins the Vietnam War!

30 January 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

We have yet more Watchmen goodies for you today, with a before- and-after look at the process of creating Doctor Manhattan, who's big with the Vietnamese - or at least worshipped like a god by the Viet Cong.

This pic forms part of the flashback sequence where Doctor Manhattan talks about his life: how he became the superbeing he is, how it changed his life and how he won the Vietnam War. You can also see the unfinished version with those glowy blue effects yet to be added in.

Exclusive: New Watchmen Production Pics

These pictures come from Titan Books' Watchmen: The Film Companion, which is out on February 6. You can also see more exclusive Watchmen pictures in the latest issue of Empire.

It'll invariably never live up to expectations, lets just hope it's not a million miles off. Still waiting for the IMAX tickets to go on sale, after The Dark Knight at the IMAX I'd advise anyone who can to watch the big visual films there and pay the extra...it's worth every penny! More
