Watch part of ‘Watchmen’ right now, legally! Oops, not so fast …

Springs Hosting

The folks who worked with Watchmen director Zack Snyder to design the film’s gorgeous opening title sequence have graciously put the entire thing online for you to see at

Apparently, it was not quite as legal as I was led to believe. The video has been removed “either temporarily or permanently.” I can guess which.

At 04:35, in the lower left corner of the background, you can check out J.R. Killigrew as David Bowie. Recently I interviewed Killigrew about the “surreal” experience of working on Watchmen. The actor also played Link in an April Fool’s Day 2008 trailer for a fictitious movie based on The Legend of Zelda.

Killigrew will be in the Valley to show Manos Partidas, a short film he wrote, produced, directed and stars in, at the Phoenix Film Festival April 2-9 at the Harkins Scottsdale 101. The showtimes are 6:15 p.m. Friday, April 3, and 1:45 p.m. Saturday, April 4, with both screenings in Auditorium 3.
