Watchmen - An All New Set of Character Movie Posters

Watchmen - Blood Splattered Smiley Face logoThis latest set of Watchmen character one sheet movie posters blows away the previous set of character movie promo posters released last August. While the original character posters were photos of scenes taken directly from the Watchmen comic books, this set has more of a big budget movie feel to it. The marketing team has also done another fantastic job incorporating quotes from the movie into the posters. They have definitely built upon what The Spirit character movie posters started and taken it to a whole new level.

While I’m still not loving Ozymandias’ look in the feature film, the rest of the characters look spot on. Of the six posters each featuring a different main character, I think I like The Comedian’s the best, with Rorschach’s coming in a close second. What can I say…The Blot has to show some preferential treatment to the creator of the ink blot test, right?

I know I’ve said this before, but the more I see of this movie the more I like it. But, I am interested in seeing if the movie tries to show what it would be like if people with super powers lived among us or if this is a parallel universe totally different from the world we live in and more like the world author Alan Moore created in the comic books.
