Japanese trailer for Watchmen

Ahh... Watchmen. Easily my most anticipated movie of 2009, and surprisingly, I found out that is was set to be released in Japan the same month (March) as in America. BUT.... there is current litigation between FOX, who claim to own the original distribution rights and Warner Brothers, who produced the film.
Fox actually won an early court case, and they may block the release the of the film. Which would be an enormous shame, since everything I see online about the movie looks incredible.

If you've seen the domestic trailer, then you might be interested to see the Japanese trailer below, since it features some new footage and turns the focus of the movie into a political realm mirroring today's society, even tho the film is set, as was the original graphic novel, in the mid 1980s.

Jason, don't listen to this idiot. We all know you are very respectful to your students and wouldn't show their faces on camera unless they agreed to it. This guy is just a pathetic low life trying to make himself feel big and is a pretty big racist.

Thank you Mr. Univerman777, you may go now and continue to think the whole world is against Japan and live in your little shell.

You've done a lot of good, Jason, and I hope you remember that and keep thinking positive about the future!
