The SCREAM 2008 awards event will feature exclusive world premiere footage from two of Warner Brothers' most highly anticipated releases of the coming year: WATCHMEN and FRIDAY THE 13TH.
Based on the graphic novel by DC Comics, WATCHMEN is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society and the "Doomsday Clock" -- which charts the USA's tension with the Soviet Union -- is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. Directed by Zack Snyder the complex, multi-layered mystery adventure stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Patrick Wilson and Malin Akerman. WATCHMEN hits theaters March 6.
FRIDAY THE 13TH comes to SCREAM this year as Spike TV will premiere footage of the updated cult classic in theaters Friday, February 13. Directed by Marcus Nispel (PATHFINDER) and starring television star Jared Padalecki (SUPERNATURAL), Jason will once again haunt the cursed campgrounds of Crystal Lake, but this time, hockey-masked Jason is the real killer.
The third annual televised event tapes Saturday, October 18 at The Greek Theater in Los Angeles, California and premieres Tuesday, October 21 (9-11 p.m., ET/PT) on Spike TV.
Fan voting for this year's awards began Friday, September 12 and remains open until Friday, October 17. To vote or to view exclusive red carpet and backstage coverage, visit scream.spike.com.
