To celebrate the release of the Watchmen this Friday, Doctor Manhattan rose from the Thames last night at 8pm. The blue-skinned, super-powered being appeared above the murky depths of the London‘s river to a height of over 70 feet and towered over all those who dared to attend.
This dramatic, one-off spectacle was created using the world’s biggest water screen projector. The water screen, moored especially for this occasion in the middle of the Thames between the London Eye and The Shell Building, created an enormous vertical screen of water that extended to 72 feet in height and 100 feet across. Specially created, never to be seen again Watchmen footage, was projected onto the screen to showcase Dr Manhattan’s translucent and shimmering form in dramatic and gigantic effect.
