Despite looking like a goth version of the big meeting at the beginning of The Warriors, Spike TV's Scream Awards managed to pull in some pretty big talent Tuesday night. Liv Tyler, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman, Anthony Hopkins, Ron Perlman and Jon Favreau were among the A-listers who showed up to get screamed at by a group of extras from Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson videos. (Both were in attendance.) But the real treat of the night was the appearance of the Watchmen cast, who brought along some new footage... okay, it was a lot of old footage, mostly from the first trailer, but there were some tasty gems buried within, ones that nobody had seen before, not even the press.
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.
