As I have previously pointed out, I have been waiting impatiently for the movie Watchmen. Apparently it became a hit as it earns almost $25 Mil on first day.
Watchmen is based on the comic book limited series of the same name. It takes place in an alternate history United States in which superheroes emerged in the 1940s and 1960s, helping the United States to win the Vietnam War. The country is edging closer to a nuclear war with the Soviet Union, freelance costumed vigilantes have been outlawed, and most costumed superheroes are in retirement or working for the government. The story focuses on the personal development and struggles of the heroes as they investigate the murder of a government supported superhero. The investigation pulls them out of retirement and eventually leads them to confront a plot to kill millions of innocent people.
It has a 8,3 score on IMDB so far which is relatively high for a comic-based movie. I just cannot wait to see it. I am planning to write a detailed review afterwards. Stay tuned!
