Water screen on The Thames for Watchmen: Dr Manhattan rises out of The Thames, London
A 70-foot high image of the comic book character Dr Manhattan appeared out of the Thames last night using the world’s biggest water screen projector.
Dr Manhattan, the blue skinned, super-powered being beloved of all Watchmen fans towered above the crowds who’d gathered on the river bank in central London to see the event.
The water screen was moored in the middle of the Thames between the London Eye and The Shell Building to create an vertical screen of water that extended to 72 feet in height and 100 feet across.
Specially created Watchmen footage was projected onto the screen to show Dr Manhattan’s gigantic translucent and shimmering form.
The one-off spectacle was created to promote the big screen adaptation of the 1986 comic book series Watchmen.
