If you've been following the Watchmen movie news, you may have heard that there were recently screenings of preview footage in Los Angeles and New York. Luckily, we were invited -- okay, we begged to be let in to the New York screening, where director Zack Snyder and original comic book artist Dave Gibbons answered our questions and showed us some mind-blowing stuff. Well, we took notes on everything, and we've posted a detailed description of the footage in our Mondo Extras blog! Check out our detailed recap, then check back to read the Q & As and hear our critical commentary.
If you've seen footage of Dr. Manhattan, the glowing, atomic superhero who plays a major role in Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie, you've probably thought to yourself, "How do they do that?" Or maybe you didn't. Maybe you know everything there is to know about special effects, and I'm a big stupidhead. Well, I may be a big stupidhead, but I don't think I'm alone in being curious about how they made the glow from a computer-generated character appear on the real-life characters he was interacting with. Luckily, this stupidhead need wonder no longer!
