Watchmen Japanese Trailer is Nixon-rific

Apparently Oliver Stone was wrong when he told us that my Grandmama involved in the conspiracy that killed JFK in Dallas all those years ago. In fact, it was the masked vigilante The Comedian that pulled the trigger while skulking around behind that infamous fence! See, Grandmama, I knew you were innocent all along. Anyways, here’s yet another International trailer for Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen”, which may or may not be released to you this Summer. If the film does get released, you’ll see plenty of politically sensitive storylines, it would appear, including even more appearances by the film’s version of Richard Nixon. At least, according to this Japanese trailer for the movie. Wonder why it’s so Nixon-heavy, though. What’s the deal with that?

It’s the 1980’s and it’s a different world. Superheroes have been outlawed, the only ones still in operation under direct control of the United States government. Suddenly, those heroes both still in action and retired find themselves targets by an unseen enemy, who wants to kill them one by one.

(Hopefully) opening March 6, 2009.
