More info:

A complex, multi-layered mystery adventure, Watchmen is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the "Doomsday Clock" - which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union - is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion - a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers - Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity...but who is watching the watchmen?

Also, the youtube vid above has some dude at the end of it. Just ignore 'em.

The Citizen Kane of Comic Books. Only graphic novel to win the Hugo Award. It looks great and with the special effects done nowadays this could be epic. The guy who did 300 will be taking the reigns on this project.

Look's like a good flick in the makings. Haven't read the GN. but will soon.
Thanks for the heads up.
