[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 Apple.com 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.
