Exclusive Zack and Debbie Snyder WATCHMEN Video Interview at the Saturn Awards

     June 25, 2008




Tonight, at the Hilton Hotel at Universal Studios, was the 34th Annual Saturn Awards. If you don’t know about the Saturn’s, it’s the once a year awards ceremony for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films.



What’s great about the Saturn’s is the way the press can interact with the attendees. Whoever is on the red carpet always gives you plenty of time to talk, and the winners end up backstage for some more Q & A.



While some events you’re lucky to get 1 minute with someone, I’ve got about 2 hours of video interviews to edit and post…so in the next 48 hours you’re about to get flooded with interviews with the cast of Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Guillermo del Toro and Doug Jones and a few other surprises…



But up first…Zack and Debbie Snyder for Watchmen.



When I saw the two of them walking towards me on the red carpet, I’ll admit I was very happy. With Comic-Con around the corner, I realized this was the perfect place to get a jump on news and info that I could share with you. Thankfully, both were willing to talk and posted below is about 10 minutes of them answering all my questions.



But the highlight was easily the smile that Zack gave me when I confronted him with what I know to be true…that the trailer for Watchmen is attached to the Dark Knight. Watch his reaction.



We also discussed the running time, how long will the DVD be, the sizzle real he showed Warner Bros., and how Nite Owl’s ship is going to be at Comic-Con!



Trust me, if you’re a fan of Watchmen or are just looking forward to Zack’s new movie…this is a must see interview.



And since it’s almost 1am as I write this…look for a ton of other video interviews all day tomorrow after I wake up. And the one I did with Guillermo is also a must see…tons of Hobbit news….



Update – Here’s the second interview I did with Zack Snyder at the Saturns where he talked about a 300 Sequel, Illustrated Man, Guardians of Ga’Hoole and says we’ll see Dr. Manhattan before Comic-Con!
