This is a day that I have literally been waiting for, ever since early 1990 when I first read the book. More than that if you count that the first time I heard about Watchmen at all was in summer of 1988 and the very first whispers of adapting it into a movie.
I've been writing about the attempts to turn Watchmen into a full-length feature from the very beginning of this blog. Most of the time, it's been to share my belief that this is a book that has been and will remain impossible to film.
But all the same, here we are: on the eve of the release of Watchmen in cinemas.
I'm heading out early this evening to join some friends who have likewise been waiting a long time for this movie. Will report back later with my initial reaction.
