248w ago - With all the Watchmen fuzz all over the country, it is easy to forget who actually took on the task of writing the movie and try living up to the masterpiece the graphic novel is.
Fortunately, there is a little blog called The Back Room that had an interview with non-other than David Hayter, screenwriter of Watchmen.
David Hayter well known for his voice acting for Metal Gear's Solid Snake, was talking to Amanda Mack in this interview about his thoughts about the movie finally being released. David responds how awesome it feels to look at the opening credits playing in front of the audience.
Hayter goes on saying how he tried his best to keep as loyal to the graphic novel as possible. He was working close with Alan Moore, and got his support throughout the process. Amanda and Hayter also talk about the game, Watchmen: The End is Nigh, and hopes of David writing the Metal Gear movie.
Have a read or a listen to the full interview in The Back Room. There is also a full downloadable audio version.
The most celebrated graphic novel of all time that broke the conventional mold continues to break new ground. Watchmen co-creator and illustrator Dave Gibbons oversees this digital version of the graphic novel that adds limited motion, voice and sound to the book's striking drawn panels.
All 12 chapters of the story are here - over 5 hours spanning everything from the mysterious demise of the Comedian to the crisscrossed destinies of loosely allied superheroes to their fateful impact on the world. Be in the know. Be watching. With Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic.

249w ago - Social Media Senior Specialist Chris Morell shared a Watchmen: The End is Nigh interview video today as well as news on a live chat session tomorrow, to quote:
One of the most popular graphic novels of all time hits the big-screen this Friday, with 300 director Zack Snyder at the helm.
So while I am figuring out a way to snag IMAX tickets for Friday, Watchmen fever is spreading to the PS3, with the downloadable title coming to PlayStation Network this Thursday.
Jeff and I recently visited with Warner for a little hands-on time with the game, and I grabbed associate producer Jerry Pritchard for some questions.
And Jerry was nice enough to agree to come on back to the Blog tomorrow from 11am - 12 noon for a live chat about Watchmen: The End is Nigh for PSN. So get your questions ready because we're doin' this all over again!
252w ago - Watchmen is regarded by many to be one of the greatest graphic novels of all time. In conjunction with the movie's release is a video game tie-in for Sony's PS3 (and the XBox 360) as follows:
The End is Nigh certainly does a lot of things right, and it's these dressings that make the game worthwhile for Watchmen fans.
The visuals are absolutely gorgeous; the dark, rain-drenched cities of the graphic novel are accurately recreated in the game. Multiplatform digital releases very rarely, if ever, look this good.
Each chapter begins with an animated introduction that fleshes out this prequel's story. While the production values don't match those of the Watchmen digital comic, these animated shorts do an admirable effort in recreating the look of the original graphic novel.
Fans will certainly appreciate being able to see Rorschach and Nite Owl as crimefighters, not the condemned outcasts they become in the original story.
While it's easy to get swept away by the impressive presentation, the gameplay is thoroughly uninspired. Players can play as either Rorscach or Nite Owl, but the choice seems largely inconsequential.
Ultimately, all players have access to are a generic combination of punches and kicks. Nite Owl can do electric attacks, and Rorscach can...
