In 1985 where former superheroes exist, the murder of a colleague sends active vigilante Rorschach into his own sprawling investigation, uncovering something that could completely change the course of history as we know it.
Ozymandias proved to be a difficult role to fill, as the part required an actor who was handsome, fit but with a world-weariness to him. After a lengthy search, Zack Snyder was delighted to find that Matthew Goode possessed all the requisite qualities.
Dan Dreiberg: They're icing up. Hold on to something!
Rorschach: Daniel, you're coming in too low. Don't wish to interfere with running of ship, but perhaps should pull up sharply before...

During the 1959 accident at the Intrinsic Field Laboratory, the door lock time mechanism uses a Nixie tube digit display. The '5' digit can be seen to be an upside-down '2'. This is a characteristic of Russian (or Soviet) Nixie-tube displays and therefore would not be used in a U.S. scientific facility.
The opening credits themselves often cast shadows in the frame that correspond with the flashes from photographer's bulbs.
