Watchmen Set Reports and Interviews Galore!

The geekgasm begins in earnest.

With less than a month between us and Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen,” the press machine is grinding into high gear — and that means a slew of articles about the film, including some long-embargoed set visit reports from 2007 and a rapturous review of the “emotional experience” of watching the movie from Time Magazine’s Matt Selman.

First, the set visits, which started going up at midnight PST: In the fall of 2007, a handful of film writers, including representatives from Collider, IESB, and Superhero Hype!, were invited to take a peek behind the scenes of Watchmen, and even though Snyder was only about a month into shooting, all of the writers were impressed, to put it mildly. In his lengthy writeup, Ryan Rotten of SHH! wrote “The sheer prep work on display here is astonishing”; his sentiments were echoed by IESB’s Erich Wood, who exclaimed “Sweet Alan Moore’s beard!” and Collider’s Steve Weintraub, who had a “geekgasm” and chafed under the embargo: “All I want to do is scream as loud as I can to everyone I know and to everyone who reads the site about how amazing this set visit was and how the movie looks like it’s done the impossible — making Alan Moore’s ‘unfilmable’ graphic novel into a movie everyone will love.”

All three outlets are now offering a ton of newly freed Watchmen content, including the aforementioned set visit reports, as well as interviews with Snyder and many of the movie’s stars. To begin what could very easily end up being several hours of Watchmen reading, follow the links below!

And then check out Matt Selman’s latest missive from Nerd World, the Time-sponsored blog he co-authors with Lev Grossman. In the post, Selman waxes rhapsodic about his Watchmen screening, calling the experience “a serious freak-out” and “one of the most powerful experiences I’ve ever had,” and saying it’s “astounding how much of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ graphic novel is in this movie.” Though Selman skirts the March 6th review embargo by leaving out specific details (or imagines he skirts it, anyway; other writers have already cried foul), it’s an interesting look at an early emotional response to one of the most anticipated movies in recent memory.
