When Devindra and I sat down at the Warner Brothers panel this morning, I don’t think either of us were expecting too much. While artist Dave Gibbons (who seems like an extremely nice and talented individual) was here to answer questions, Zack Snyder was not going to be making an appearance, nor would any cast. I was thinking, at best, that they’d show us a slightly longer version of the footage and trailers we’ve all already seen. That’s when Gibbons dropped a bomb on us:

We were about to see the first 18 minutes of Watchmen.

Hit the jump for a detailed description of the segment we were shown, plus an extra bonus scene from later on in the film that Gibbons claimed we were the first ever in the world to see. Note that the following could be considered SPOILERS.

Please Recommend /Film on Facebook

/Film is on the scene at the 2009 New York Comic-Con! Although the NYCC (held at the Javits Center) is not nearly as overpopulated and out of control as its San Diego counterpart, there will still be some neat footage and panels this weekend that me and Devindra Hardawar will be covering for the site over the next 48 hours.

This evening, we had the privilege of seeing a screening of the new Futurama direct-to-DVD film, Into the Wild Green Yonder. Amidst thousands of enthusiastic Futurama fans, the two of us along with Alex Billington from Firstshowing watched the fourth (and potentially final) Futurama movie unfold. It’s no secret that Devindra and I haven’t been terribly pleased with the quality of the most recent direct-to-DVD films. Did the movie live up to the best of the series? Hit the jump to hear our thoughts.

Donnie Darko Sequel Goes Direct To DVD

Do you remember S. Darko, the Donnie Darko spin-off film we wrote about a while back? You know, the one which follows Donnie’s sister and features no involvement from the original director Richard Kelly? Yeah, that one. The good news is that the film will not play theatrically and will instead go direct-to-dvd on April 28th from MGM’s home entertainment. Film School Rejects reports that the trailer for the film will be screened at the New York Comic Con this weekend (where I assume, and hope, fans will express their outrage by “booing” loudly). When the trailer is released online, we will attempt to do the same in text form (if possible).
