Watchmen director Zack Snyder has issued another update from the set of his highly anticipated adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ graphic novel, and what he has to say — and show — should only increase fans’ excitement for the film.

In a post titled simply “The Backlot,” Snyder goes into detail on what went into building the set’s Vancouver stand-in for New York City, sharing the following details:

5,800 feet of neon requiring 24,000 watts of power
100 unique and custom-designed graphics created for the various storefronts
5,000 square feet of custom posters
Street had to work for 1938, 1945, 1953, 1957, 1964, 1974, 1975, 1977, and 1985
1,040 feet of 1:1 scale New York streets
98,400 square feet of exterior scenery
12,500 square feet of interior scenery
Building heights range from 23’9″ to 42’6″
10,325 16-foot 2x4s
3,600 sheets of OSB (plywood-like construction material)
384,000 square feet of foam brick
200,000 nails
3,500 tubes of construction adhesive
160,000 lbs. of steel I-beams support the facades
300 cubic meters of concrete
6,000 square feet of glass
4,800 square feet of plexiglass
20,000 donuts were consumed by the construction crew
20,000 gallons of water and 3,000 gallons of Gatorade was drunk by the crew

Pretty interesting stuff — but that isn’t all. Snyder also shares four stills from the set, including one featuring Jackie Earle Haley prowling the streets as Rorschach. Click on each image for its hi-res version!

Watchmen is scheduled to hit theaters March 6, 2009.
