How Filmmakers Adapted the Classic Comic Book Series Watchmen, Long Considered Unadaptable

Filmmaker Kristian Williams created a video that explains how director Zack Snyder adapted the classic comic book series Watchmen for the 2009 feature film. The seminal comic book series by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons was long considered unadaptable, with all previous attempts to film it being unsuccessful.

Williams’ short documentary explores the differences between the two versions, with close attention paid to how the comics series made use of the unique aspects of the medium.
