Based on the 1986-1987 comic book cult series Watchmen by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, this long awaited film adaptation stars Malin Åkerman, Billy Crudup, Matt Frewer, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Stephen McHattie, Laura Mennell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Patrick Wilson. Set in an
alternate-history 1985, the Watchmen are a group of former caped superheroes (men dressed up in costumes) in a time when tensions heighten between the United States and the Soviet Union... an investigation of an apparent conspiracy against them uncovers something even more grandiose and sinister. As with his previous film 300, Snyder closely modeled his storyboards on the comic and is controversially reviewed by film and comic book lovers both.
