WATCHMEN

Here’s a new poster for the Zack Snyder-directed film based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons.

Speaking of Snyder, he spoke with Dark Horizons about the new trailer. “I just saw the final version of it this morning,” Snyder said. “It’s a little bit more story, a teeny bit more like a full trailer. This is much more like ‘someone’s picking off costume heroes.’ You’ll get a sense of the characters plight you know, ‘we were supposed to make the world a better place … what happened to the American Dream?'”

Release date: March 6, 2009.

THE LOSERS

Superhero Hype spoke with producers Joel Silver and Susan Downey, who talked about bringing the Vertigo property to the big screen.

But I hope to do ‘Dirty Dozen’ one day, too. I always look at these things that there’s a lot of time, a lot of movies to make. Sometimes the time is right for them and sometimes you have to wait to make them for another time.”

No release date announced, directed by Sylvain White.
