In a whole new twist on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Watchmen stars Malin Akerman and Carla Gugino did some hot and heavy kissing before being doused with a bucket of cold water by their Watchmen director, Zack Snyder.
How did this happen?
Zack Snyder, director of Watchmen and the man who was recently shooting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Detroit according to M Live, was nominated for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. When challenged, you have 24 hours to dump an ice-cold bucket of water over your head and film it for all to see. If you don’t, then you donate money to the ALSA Association for research and promotion of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease. According to ALSA, ALS stands for Amyotrophic lateral sclerois, a debilitating and often fatal disease.
As previously reported on The Inquisitr, lots of stars from Stephen King to George W. Bush to the Foo Fighters have taken the challenge. Probably the best so far has been Dave Grohl and company’s full on re-shoot of the seminal scene from Brian De palma’s film, Carrie, with Dave Grohl in the lead role.
However, today an ALS Ice Bucket Challenge featuring the stars of the Watchmen was put online that almost puts all others to shame.
The Watchmen stars, Malin Akerman and Carla Gugino, are sitting on a rooftop somewhere. A camera points to a sign that reads: Challenged by Zack Snyder. The camera then pulls around to reveal Malin Ackerman and Carla Gugino sitting next to each other — and then, the two start kissing passionately. There seems to be little to no reservations for either of them. This goes on for about ten seconds before someone pours an ice cold bucket of water over their heads. After which, the two Watchmen stars start cracking up beyond belief as they clearly realize the insanity of the situation.
After they take a moment to settle down and/or cool off, Carla Gugino holds up a sign reading: Carla challenges Danny Devito, Juliette Lewis, and Jason Weinberg. The camera then pans over to Malin Akerman’s sign which reads: Malin challenges Dan Stevens, Bradley Whitford, and Nicole Paone.
In Zack Snyder’s adaptation of the Alan Moore classic comic series, Watchmen, Malin Akerman played Laurie Jupiter, also known as the Silk Spectre. Carla Gugino, though only seven years older than Akerman, played Laurie’s mother in the Watchmen, Sally Jupiter, the original Silk Spectre.
This Ice Bucket Challenge was quite different from the other challenges we’ve seen, though, as a fan of the Watchmen, I hope other actresses will continue the tradition!
