New "Watchmen" Publicity Stills

Aintitcool.com put up some sweet new publicity stills for the cast of Zach Snyder's upcoming "Watchmen" movie, each actor photographed in full costume. (Pictured above is an actor named Jeffrey Dean Morgan who plays The Comedian.) Snyder's casting unknowns for the main cast (with the exception of Carla Gugino and, possibly, Jackie Earle Haley), which is fantastic because it encourages audiences to view the actors solely as the characters they're playing and not merely as celebrities of varying wattage who all just happen to be starring in a movie together. As with everything I'm seeing come out of this production, I'm heartened by these new images. So far, no missteps. And because it's Snyder helming this thing, I'm not expecting any.

Yeah, I really like the look of those photos. On the other hand, I watched 300 for the first time the other night. I was expecting it to look awesome and be kind of shallow, but I was surprised by how completely bored I became with that movie.

Here's hoping only 1/3 of Watchmen is in slow motion...

You suck, Harwell.

I know.

Jackie Earl Haley doesn't though. I love that guy.
