SAVE WATCHMEN FROM 20TH CENTURY FOX sign now

"Things have their shape in time, not space alone. Some marble blocks have statues within them, embedded in their future. Without me, things would have been different... Am I to blame, then?.. Which of us is responsible? Who makes the world? Perhaps the world is not made. Perhaps nothing is made. Perhaps it simply is, has been, will always be there..." -Dr. Manhattan

"We in this country, in this generation, are by destiny, rather than choice, the watchmen on the walls of world freedom." -John F. Kennedy

Watchmen is more than just another comic book waiting to be filmed and mined for profit. To many of us, Watchmen changed our lives. It made us want to be writers, directors, comic book authors, artists. It is a book of such gravitas and intelligence that it is more than simple art or great storytelling. It is one of a kind and there will never be another like it. The care and love is in every panel, every page, every instance of dialogue and at every available opportunity it asks us to go farther. It is a book you never stop thinking about and one whose resonance only increases with each passing year.

There's a reason this film wasn't made until now. It asks, nay screams, for a guiding hand in assuring it is preserved, respected, and most of all, treated with a sense of versimilitude. Zack Snyder is that hand, and this film is his as much as the graphic novel is Alan Moore & Dave Gibbon's. Hollywood has fallen dramatically out of step with it's audience and in giving us what they think we want or what maximizes profit, they've sacrificed quality. By thinking that no one wants to sit through a three hour comic book film, they've grossly underestimated us. Isn't The Dark Knight now one of the most critically acclaimed and financially successful films of all time? It's not that we don't want to sit through a three hour film; it's that we want it to be worth those three hours. Please don't give us another film of misdirected passion.

20th Century Fox has had every available opportunity to make this film, and have chosen to remain completely quiet through pre-production, filming, and post-production. It wasn't until that first trailer was released and they saw the potential, ambition, pure love, and absolute dedication to detail that Snyder & his production team approached this film with. It's in every frame of every bit of footage they've released. There are images and layers of details in this film no one will ever fully comprehend, no matter how much we freeze frame. It is as close as anyone will get to bringing that world to life. And now, that world is in danger.

We don't want to see another generic superhero flick. For once, we want to be heard. This is our stand. Who watches the Watchmen?

We do.
