The Hollywood Reporter has written an interesting commentary on the release of the Watchmen film. A highlight:

When it comes attached to “Watchmen.” After the legal battles, the fanboy hype and the boxoffice hopes, the pic came in with a $55 million opening — pretty decent for an R-rated March movie … but not that decent when you consider nothing opened against it and it was on 3,600 bloody screens.
It goes on to discuss the Alan Moore connection, and what might be Zack Snyder’s future. You read the blog post in its entirety here.
