It's a murder mystery! It's got superheroes you've never heard of! It's totally deep and way metaphysical!
Grow a d—k. Billy Crudup, who plays Dr. Manhattan, is taking a decidedly more proactive approach to his Watchmen promotional duties.
Initially known for his work on the stage, Billy Crudup emerged in the late '90s as a young actor of considerable talent, gracing the screen in an increasing number of films. Crudup first won audience attention and critical acclaim in his role as an amorous tutor in the widely praised New York production of Tom Stoppard's Arcadia. He followed this success with a lead in the stage production of Bus Stop, winning similarly excellent reviews for his performance.

Diehard fans will tell you that Alan Moore, an English comic book writer, revolutionised the superhero genre with Watchmen. It is a pitch black tale of flawed superheroes playing fast and loose with the future of the human race. In transferring it to the big screen, Hollywood director Zack Snyder retains all of its darkest themes.
Overall the film delivers to comic fans and un-fans alike as the acting was solid, the fight scenes were bad ass and non-repetitive, and the cinematography was beautifully complete with unique shots and angles. Most importantly, the characters were true to their print influences. Seriously, how many times did we see Dr.
When the film debuted at the Venice Film Festival earlier this year it set off a shockwave because of its sexual explicitness, including a much-discussed full-frontal reveal by Fassbender.

They would prefer not seeing it at all, and especially not in an erotic setting, but if it is seen it should be in a comedic context.
