Aw c'mon - surely Curi deserves the spot!

He does, but, well, he lives in Oregon and the event is in NY.

The set visit, now this!? Lucky S.O.B.!

On the set visit you mentioned that you were there during filming between Malin Akerman and Patrick Wilson. How was Ms. Akerman's acting? Was it good enough for Watchmen? Did she become Laurie?

Anyway, I hope you can tell us what was shown. . .

Haha.

No but really... please get those.

I am absolutely DYING to see some footage aside from the trailer... not having been to comic-con... I bet/hope some bootleg footage will show up eventually.

Haha you're so lucky DDC... you have to tell us all about it!

I covered this in another thread a while back... Yes, she is great. Perfect Laurie.

Thanks for the sentiment, AYB. I'd be there if I could, trust me.

Oh, and DD will hopefully be able to tape-record the Q&A session. I'll get to typing that up as soon as it's sent to me.

Side note: I've had the chance to talk with DD's wife a few times. She's a lovely person and I really do hope they have a great time.

That sounds like it should be great fun! I hope its really great, and can't wait to hear impressions!

Now, more important is the matter of recording the event! We've developed a camera small enough to fit inside this oversized novelty hat. But you must be in and out in 10 minutes or you'll suffer severe neck damage! :P
(Hopefully someone else remembers that episode)

Oh my goodness, that's very exciting!

I wholly understand that you can't record this footage (damn it), but tell us whatever you can about it when you get back. We'll be sitting here like a herd of tiny but hungry puppies waiting for whatever scraps you can throw us.

Cool DDC

And any of you who may be thinking "why DDC — the lucky git"? Just look at this site.

Doesn't happen by itself. And it's shrewd marketing. Spreading the word...

Just got an invite in the mail from WB inviting me to an event on Oct. 6th in NYC where there will be showing some footage from the Watchmen film.

The footage will be introduced in person by Zack Snyder and will be followed by a Q&A with Snyder and Dave Gibbons.

Now, from what I've been told, this footage will be mostly never before seen stuff and will be actual scenes with dialog. I was not told how long the footage will run, but the guess is between 20 and 30 minutes.

They will also be holding the same event in LA, but I'm not sure of the date.

Of course, I am thrilled to have been invited and want to thank WB for asking me. :D


you could go there with a big hat on, if you know what I mean... :mrgreen:



there's just one little something bugging me...how come no one in all bloody Internet did a single comment about the 'supertrailer' and pics exhibited in england??? it's unbelieveable...

...and where's the Gibbons' Q&A??


oh and DD, if Kevin Smith is there, please, punch his hand over a table.

hahahaa...that's what I thought...

this time, please...someone should record something, it's just so unfair. let someone upload it to rapidshare or whatever. damn, we lost the footage at comic con, at that UK comic con and now this!? no, no, no.

It's a press event, so I doubt anyone is going to try and shoot the footage. I will do my best to remember every detail and report back.

Lucky bastard. Glad to hear you got an invite to this. You deserve to be there more than anyone else, IMO...

BUT, when the hell are the rest of the fans going to get to see some new footage of this fucking movie? I'm tired of the press getting all of the privileges when it comes to seeing new footage. The fans of Watchmen are the people who are going to make this movie #1 at the box office the day it's released. I think we deserve SOMETHING for that. Hopefully, the new video journal 2 weeks from now has something substantial in it.

It's been said before, and I'll just say it again: Doomsday, you're a really lucky guy. Though, I seriously doubt it, I hope we will be able to see this footage before the movie comes out, if not, I trust that you will tell us of every detail. The 6th is gonna be a good day for Watchmen fans.

Ain't gonna happen.

I won't be the only press guy at the event. I learned a tough lesson at Comic-Con: I can't deliver what a staffed media outlet can, so I'm not going to try.

Chances are I'll be scooped by someone else faster then I can post something here.

Expect my full report later that evening.

In all honesty I'd much prefer your thought out, honest report on the footage than the usual ZOMG!!!!oneoneoneeleven! type scattershot "reporting" that immediately follows such things.

Screw their 'scoops', i'll stick with the reliable stuff I can trust :)

Congrats, DD!

You sure deserve it... I don't think you're lucky, luck doesn't have nothing to do... You have worked rather hard with this site and it is paying off... good job!

Keep us informed, and, please, try to guess when are we going to see another trailer... cant wait!
