Not-So-Daily Link of the Day: The official Japanese website for Zack Snyder's live-action film adaptation of the Watchmen graphic novel is offering a computer screensaver produced by Frogman, the creator of Eagle Talon The Movie - The Chancellor Only Lives Twice, Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar ~Ima, Fuki ni Yukimasu~, and other alternative anime fare. The Eagle Talon team have created a bear-themed screensaver (for Microsoft Windows) around the motif of Rorschach, the violent, uncompromising masked protagonist in Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen story. The website also posted a startup screen graphic and wallpaper for mobile phones.
Warner Brothers opened the film in North America on March 6, and Paramount Pictures will open the film in Japan on March 28.
