Star Studded Night For The First Big Movie Of The Year “WATCHMEN”
Actres/Model Sol Romero, just returning from her new movie with Mel Gibson in Boston, attended the Premiere of Watchmen tonight (Monday, March 2, 2009) in Hollywood. The movie has as much action and animation as The Dark Night, and believe it or not it has its own kind of Joker. Romero, who plays a hospital nurse in the new thriller “The Edge of Darkness” due out in November bumped into Actor John Voight on the celebrity carpet where both were photographed below. Romero’s latest movie is in post production and was directed by Martin Cambell “Casino Royale, Legend of Zorro, Mask of Zorro.”
The superhero movie is based on the graphic novel by Dave Gibbons, “Watchmen,” and is set in an 1980’s. The twist in this story is the superheroes are the bad guys, while President Nixon is serving his third term. The script was written in the 80’s, but fits in today’s culture. Doctor Manhattan is a 45-foot-tall glowing blue man, who can do just about anything, and walks around in a front nude more talking to his lover Laurie Jupiter. Laurie’s 60-year-old mom is played by Carla Gugino.

The story counts down to nuclear war, and masked crime- fighting superheroes and vigilantes debate whether mankind should be taken out or saved.
This dark tale makes the Dark Knight movie appear to be mild in comparision to the violence and special effects. Lots of action and lots of kissing and some sex scenes, so definitely not a family movie, and you might need the
larger refillable popcorn order, because the epic never seems to end.
It is a big action movie with few major stars, but a film that will make these unknowns more known by the time the box office score this weekend. These types of movies are kind in 2009.
Romero highly recommends the movie and except for the brutal beating of one superwoman and a blue man walking around with nude the movie is excellent. You will not fall sleep on this one.
The movie is directed by Zack Snyder.
The cast includes: Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Wilson.
And you’ll feel like you just had a double dose of java when you leave the theaters.
it’s 162 minutes and rated R.
