New 'WATCHMEN' Set Photos

Director Zack Snyder has posted the first glimpses of the highly-anticipated New York backlot from his Watchmen film.
The official Watchmen movie site has been updated with a few new photos of the New York City street set, which looks to have jumped off the pages of the graphic novel.

The pics on the site are preluded by comments from director Zack Snyder, including the following:

"Last week we finally made the transition to our New York City backlot. Since the New York City that is rendered in the graphic novel is so particular, it was very important to me that our backlot speak the same language, the vernacular of WATCHMEN. In addition, the backlot needs to function as many different parts of the city, countless store fronts, street corners, alleys, etc. So, with that in mind, we set out to build [our] own custom backlot here in Vancouver, BC. In my opinion, the results speak for themselves."

Snyder then shared some interesting tidbits about the backlot, a large portion of which is full-scale New York, and is covered with 100 unique and custom-designed graphics created for the various storefronts. The "function" of the set, as mentioned by Snyder, extends to period as well as location: the street required easy alteration to various years between 1938 and 1985.
