Will people watch the Watchmen?

It feels like it’s been the biggest movie story of the year and it feels like it’s going to be another slamdunk for geeks – like The Dark Knight a year ago.  Well about a month or two ago, before the negative reviews hit the streets.

Now, I’m really intrigued what the prognosticators will predict for box office.  Are non-geeks excited about this movie?

One thing is for sure, the reviews aren’t helping.  The movie is getting slammed left and right by just about every non-internet fanboy.  Really, the only positive or glowly reviews have come predictably from the disciples of Harry Knowles.

    I feel as though the hand of god has been extended to me. But I'm also like, it took you this long to throw me a comment bone. I'm just hoping the movie doesn't suck, but I'm recognizing that's a very real possibility…

    Bah. Looks like crap to me, too. The Watchmen "motion comic" available on iTunes is the Watchmen junky's smart alternative. Very well done, and slavishly faithful to the original.
