November Watchmen Video Journal: Girls Kick Ass

Published 6 years ago by

watchmen silk spectre November Watchmen Video Journal: Girls Kick AssIt’s the beginning of the month so that means another Watchmen video production diary entry. This month Zack Snyder talks about the women of Watchmen: Silk Spectre (Carla Gugino) and Silk Spectre II (daughter of the original, played by Malin Akerman, pictured at left).

In this “episode” Snyder talks about not only the history of the female characters, but the history between them as well. The daughter resents her mother becuase she feels she was pushed into being a second generation superhero, but in the end she discovers it was what she wanted to do.

Among items shown and discussed are the martial arts training and we get to see some behind the scenes of fight scenes and action sequences.

But enough of my jabbering, see for yourself:

Watchmen is currently scheduled to open on March 6, 2009.

  1. In every shot I’ve seen of this film the visuals are amazing…

    I’m trying to limit my exposure at this point. I want to be the only one in the theatre that hasn’t read the damn book. 😎 :-) 😎 :-)

  2. That IS the risk with all this coverage and the video journals – by the time the movie arrive a lot of the magic has gone out of it.


  3. I’ve seen the fully lit inside of the Owl Ship and I allready feel mentally scared ,,,

  4. 790, I thought you told me you were going to read the book 😉

  5. Sorry Rob, I just can’t do it,,,
    After seeing the Scream Awards/ Watchman trailer I’ve decided to avoid the spoilers and new info…
    I want this film to be a surprise to me. :-)


    Dark Horizons interview with Snyder.

    Moderate sadness.

    Hoping for the best…

  7. Thanks, Lawrence – I just posted something up. :-)


  8. Incidentally, from what I hear the movie is going to have an alternate ending so it should be a surprise to all of us (just not to the same extent)

    I agree, there is a risk to the coverage but for any true fan of graphic novel you are not spoiling any endings. I appreciate your coverage of this because it convinces me that they’ve picked up the right team of actors/director to create this.
