Director Zack Snyder and members of the Watchmen cast made an appearance last night at the Spike TV 2008 Scream Awards, where they offered up an extended movie trailer for the highly anticipated film.
Watch the video of it here below.
In other Watchmen news, a test screening of the film was held in Portland last week supposedly for people not familiar with the comic book its adapted film. Reports from the screening, as well as from previous ones held in Los Angeles, were positive.
But, there’s been new information reported regarding the film’s ending, so here comes the spoiler warning.
Mind you, these reports have not been officially confirmed and were originally posted on an IMDb message board, but were quickly removed. Even so, if you don’t want to know anything about the ending of the film, read no further.
According to the reports, the climax of the graphic novel where Veidt releases his squid in New York City, was not in the movie. Instead, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias builds a machine that mimics Dr Manhattan’s powers and uses it to set off atomic bomb like explosions in various cities around the world. [Source: /Film]
Apparently, the alternate ending is a surprise, as other reports had said that the squid was included and cast members had previously mentioned the squid being a part of the film’s climax.
For those of you familiar with the original ending in the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbon’s graphic novel, what do you think of this supposed new ending for the film?
