Watchmen, the Movie

MB turned me onto the trailer for the new film version of Watchmen.

If you've read the book, you've prolly already seen the trailer; if you've read the book, maybe you're also as freaked/amazed as I am at just how visually true to the book the movie is. Really: it's like the images came to life on the screen. Very odd in an "adaptation." Anyway, it looks kinda fun.

I guess such verisimilitude makes me wonder why we need to film version at all, when we have the book. And then I wonder if the narrative structure in the film will be anywhere as multiple and confusion as in the book. Like will the shipwreck story figure in there? I kinda doubt it.
