dr manhatten watchmen trail The Watchmen Trailer Is Here!

[And ANOTHER Update (yeesh): Seems Empire screwed up by posting the trailer live and Warner Bros. was NOT happy, but now the trailer is up at so all bets are off - enjoy the Watchmen trailer below!]

Empire Online has an exclusive on the online version of the Watchmen trailer and they snuck it onto the interwebs a full day ahead of schedule.

Click on the above image to check it out, then come back and let us know if you thought it was awesome as I did! (Of course keep in mind I saw the Watchmen trailer in IMAX, which was a whole ‘nother thing). To see a series of screen grabs from the trailer, see below.

  1. link does not work!!!

  2. link doesn’t work.

    but I watched it elsewhere and it looks mindblowing

    Zac Snyder is my hero

  3. Wow, must be a lot more interest in it than I thought.

    I’m working on trying to find another version.


  4. I’ve updated the post with a copy of the Watchmen trailer right here on Screen Rant since Empire has pulled theirs.


  5. its not complete!!! at about the 40sec mark it cuts out

  6. Bloody hell. Thanks for letting me know.


  7. Ok, FULL trailer is now online.

    Thanks again,


  8. Where am I? What just happened? I think I peed myself…Sweet and it captures the tension of the graphic novel very well…I didn’t want to blink..I am sure I will WATCH this 100,000 times….

  9. Another three times and I am smelling toast..I think I’m having a stroke…My brain is melting … somebody help me…

  10. I’ve never heard of this before until I started reading about it here. The one guy looks like a rip-off of Batman. The trailer doesn’t really tell me what the movie is about.

  11. LOL, Rasta, the trailer is NOW right here as well.


  12. YES.

  13. Going to a midnight showing of TDK tonight, so I’m refusing to spoil this for myself. It’s awfully hard, though. Must…resist…urge…

  14. Holy Crap. HOLY CRAP!

  15. yo Andy, that guy IS a ripoff of Batman, that’s the point.

    Originally, Alan Moore wanted to use the main DC characters but they said nopers, so he made a cast of copy-cat characters.

    The dude you’re referring to is Night Owl and ya he is very similar to Batman, rich and full of gadgets. DEFINATELY, get the graphic novel and read it, you’ll dig it.

  16. Ahh..! Why’d they change the dialogue!

    Trailer: “…and the world will look up and shout, “Help!”…”

    Graphic Novel: “…and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout, “Help!”…”

    Also, I wonder how they’ll implement all the flashbacks / “Excerpts” ?

    This’ll be one for IMAX though, I don’t see how Jon couldn’t look silly otherwise.


  17. I haven’t read the GN but after seeing this I think I’ll get it. Definitely before i see the movie. It looks very tense and dark. Count me in as excited.

  18. Perfect! Looks perfect.

  19. Anyone know what the song is?

  20. Also, Reverend, I can’t be sure, but sincerely hope, that that was just changed for the trailer, make it more, shall we saaayyy…appropriate?

  21. It sounds like the Pirate Story part of the movie will be released separately on DVD around time this comes to theatres, the on one of the editions of the DVD, the special edition will intertwine the main story with it for a mega-length movie.

    Only those who’ve read Watchmen will know what im talking about

  22. Finally Watchmen gettin some love…

  23. Actually if I am not mistaken (if I am I’m sure enough of you will pick up on it ;) ) the DVD “Tales of the Black Freighter” will be released on it’s own DVD the week the Watchmen movie is released, as a tie in. It will be animated(not CGI) and will also be included in the extended DVD/BluRay release of the Watchmen when it comes out in that format later next year. It will actually be included as a part of the storyline of the extended cut!!

    quis custodiet ipsos custodes?


  24. This is the movie I really want them to get right next year.
