It was easy to forget during all that legal warring between Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox over Watchman whether the movie would actually perform well at the box office. Now a new MovieTickets.com poll finds that Watchmen topped the list of films that the two youngest demos tracked (ages 25-to-34 and under-24) expect to see next in theaters. Even though its release isn’t until March 6th. Though I’m not certain how many of the moviegoers understand that, they may like the film’s footage that has been shown but perhaps not the ending which director Zack Snyder has altered on the comic book series/graphic novel written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Dave Gibbons.
