Watchmen trailer

click for the Watchmen trailer

Turns out Empire's exclusive Watchmen trailer is about as exclusive as a cheap hooker. Check it out in HD over at Apple.

That said, be sure to check out Empire's comic-to-film comparison, which is mildly diverting if far from comprehensive.

Days in New York...


For a full explanation, please see the start of the countdown.


CBS 2 News at 11PM
Foreign programming is funny -- it just has a completely different set of conventions to British equivalents.

Late Show with David Letterman
(17/7/08 edition)
A record-breaking ninth appearance by Ricky Gervais, who just finished a few nights at Madison Square Garden here in NY. Also, his Extras Christmas special has just been announced as having six Primetime Emmy nominations (best writing, direction, editing, made-for-TV movie, lead actor and supporting actress).


Watchmen Teaser Trailer
The trailer is premiering online exclusively at Empire Online (doubt that'll last!) Also showing attached to The Dark Knight here in the US from midnight, which will now be opening to more booked-out screens than ever before. Presumably that's why the trailer debuts at 5AM on a British site! (I'll be getting to see it on the big screen on Saturday morning, then.)


Captain Hammer: Be Like Me! by Zack Whedon & Eric Canete
Free online comic (just follow the link) about Captain Hammer, a character from Dr Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog. There are no songs in this one though.
