New Watchmen featurette is here

Despite the fact that it’s not the sixth of the month, a new Watchmen featurette has arrived online.

Look up “irony” in the dictionary and chances are you’ll now see this footage – because it’s hosted by MySpace, which is part of Fox, the very same company trying to delay the release of the movie over its legal wrangling with Warners.

Still, it’s a nifty look at the film, with director Zack Snyder explaining the various characters and the world of Watchmen, with some brand new snippets from the pic.

March release?

Whether or not the film makes it to its March release date remains to be seen – but on the evidence of this latest peek, any delay will seem even more painful to bear. We want to see it NOW!
