So it looks like the holy grail of comic book based film projects has finally ended principal photography. Director Zach Snyder left a message on Warner Brothers’ Watchmen web page that gave a pretty confident and heartfelt thank you to all fans, cast and crew. Here’s what he had to say:
I promise to refrain from getting too sentimental, but I want to take a moment to say thanks to the Watchmen cast & crew. You have all been phenomenal. It has been quite an experience and I could not have done it without the hard work and determination of each and every one of you. A film adaptation of Watchmen has been in the works for almost 20 years and thanks to you, it is finally in the can. It has been such a pleasure to be surrounded by a team that is so dedicated and that has given 110% each and every day. I am extremely grateful for the level of attention to detail put forth by each department to capture all of the texture that makes Watchmen the incredibly unique property that it is. Although we still have a lot of work to do in post, the shoot has been an experience I will not soon forget!
Not only did he have that message to offer, but he also gave us a sneak peak at what the finished product should look like. This is just an image, but a pretty damn good one at that.
Sound Off: What do you think, now that you have seen an image from the film?
