‘Watchmen’ Artist Dave Gibbons Visits the Movie Set – Part 2
  |  @   |  

The official Watchmen site blog has been updated with Part 2 of Dave Gibbons‘s visit to the Watchmen movie set this month.

Gibbons, who is co-creator (along with Alan Moore) and artist of the Watchmen graphic novel, posted Part 1 of his visit to Zack Snyder‘s movie set earlier this month.

After describing set pieces from the backlot, Gibbons says:

The rest of the visit kaleidoscopes crazily by: I watch footage of Rorschach pulling Nite Owl off a bloodied Knot Top; I flip through an issue of the Black Freighter; on a laptop, I see raw CGI blocking for the Vietnam sequence; I hold a smiley face pin splattered with what looks like real human bean juice; sitting in my own personal director’s chair, I sign dozens of books and posters for cast and crew…

Last month, photos from the movie’s backlot sets, along with set information, were revealed on the movie’s site, proving that the director and his crew are definitely getting the minute details of the graphic novel right.

The film hits theaters March 6, 2009, and stars Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Patrick Wilson.
