I have mixed feelings about Zack Snyder's upcoming Watchmen flick. I love the source material and want to get excited about the film property however I'm not certain Snyder can do the adaptation the justice it deserves.

Well, some of my doubts have been put to rest. Warner Bros. has released a behind-the-scenes video giving fans a very good look into the film. The video focuses on the construction of sets and the practical reproduction of locations found in the graphic novel. This is the first video in a series of 12-web diaries that will be released every month on the 6th leading up the film's release. Check it out below.

Seeing the locations come to life in this video is quite a treat. Watchmen has some of the most distinct backdrops and I was worried they wouldn't translate well to the silver screen. Seeing them being constructed as close to the graphic novel as possible is reassurance that this film is on the right track.

What did you guys think of the video? Is Zack Snyder doing Watchmen the way it's supposed to be done? Post a comment and let me know what you think.
