Your tube: Trailer adds to ‘Watchmen’ excitement

WHAT: “Watchmen Trailer - Amazing!”

WHY YOU SHOULD GO: The superhero movie “Watchmen” won’t hit theaters until March 2009, but fans of comics and graphic novels are already going nuts about the trailer. I haven’t seen such a mind-blowingly visionary preview since “The Matrix.”

Its intercut images of glowing, translucent people, a spotlight-shape spaceship emerging from the water, and a Batman-like caped figure landing on the pavement give me little hint about what the movie’s about. But it looks extremely cool. It’s based on one of the most beloved graphic novels of all time.
