In what's truly been a fun week for marketing battles, Watchmen and Star Trek square off one more time this weekend, with each debuting a brand new trailer. Warner Bros. is first out of the gate with their Watchmen trailer arriving on Yahoo this evening. As for Star Trek, audiences will get to watch (and record illegally before uploading to YouTube, no doubt) the new Star Trek trailer in theaters before Quantum of Solace prior to its online debut this Monday.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on the glorious Watchmen trailer below. What do you think of it compared to the other trailers? Is it better? Worse? I'm certainly diggin' what I've seen so far, but my only worry is whether Snyder will be able to accurately capture the wide scope and philosophical undertones of this beast. Nothing against Snyder at all, but there's a reason why folks have had a hard time adapting this behemoth of a graphic novel. Based on this trailer, though, things do look damn good. Check out our recap of a half hour of Watchmen footage over here, and there are a couple galleries worth of images and posters for you to surf through below. Watchmen hits theaters on March 6, 2009.
