Finally saw Watchmen Friday night at Wondercon in IMAX.
Before I get into my thoughts in a separate post, here are some bits & pieces from Saturday's Wondercon panel & some exclusive photos.
-July Director's Cut theatrical release (if does well in theaters now) will be 3 hours 10 minutes. Will feature Hollis Mason's death, "a lot more naked blueness" and more
-With Black Freighter intercut, movie will run 3 hours 30 minutes
-Shoot was 106 days long & obviously pretty grueling
-Patrick Wilson (heart) referred to a Batman in line asking a question as his "brother from another mother." Too true, Patrick. Too true.
-In approaching the Ozy costume, Zach wanted to "butch it up", but thought the "nipples kept the spirit" of the original outfit
-Malin Ackerman was "scared shitless" but thrilled that Zack put his faith in her. The hardest part for her was learning to fight. Especially in those heels.
-Jeffrey Dean Morgan is hilarious and wonderful. Someone asked if there was a scene any of them in particular was dreading or looking forward to, to which Morgan joked "Love the rape scene. I simply couldn't get to that fast enough."
-Jackie Earle Haley sent in a homemade audition tape. Inspiration to actors everywhere!!
-Patrick Wilson loves Dan and got teary eyed watching the first scene Rorschach & Dan have together at the Wondercon panel
