Short of a certain comic book icon threatening to "spit venom" all over the film, you'll be hard pressed to find anyone out there who isn't excited about the March 6 release of "Watchmen." And a major part of that excitement has to do with the Warner Bros. hype machine, offering us fans ridiculously cool viral videos and websites that give us a glimpse into what we can expect from Zack Snyder's take on the revolutionary graphic novel.
And the fine folks at Warner Bros. ain't letting up anytime soon, as today, they've announced the details on both the "Music From The Motion Picture 'Watchmen'" (which My Chemical Romance's Gerard Way recently spoke to MTV about contributing to) and the "'Watchmen' Original Motion Picture Score" soundtracks, as well as info for the upcoming "'Watchmen': The Complete Motion Comic" DVD and Blu-ray box sets. After the jump, we've got the rundown on all of this for those of you looking forward to watching -- and listening -- to the Watchmen.
According to a press release via Warner Bros., the "Music From The Motion Picture 'Watchmen'" soundtrack will feature My Chemical Romance's highly-touted reinterpretation of Bob Dylan's "Desolation Row," in addition to a collection of classic tracks from the likes of Nat King Cole, Simon & Garfunkel, and Janis Joplin, which the release points out that, "once heard in the context of the film, will never be thought of the same way again."
The "'Watchmen' Original Motion Picture Score" features music by recording artist, composer, and music producer Tyler Bates, who collaborated with Snyder for the score to "300." Both soundtracks will be available on CD and via digital download on March 3, and for you aspiring DJ's out there, a vinyl edition will also be made available on March 17. And if that's not enough, Warners also plan on releasing a "Collectors Edition 7? Box Set," which will contain 7 double-sided 7? picture discs of each Watchmen character on one side, and images in the likeness of the graphic novel on the other. This exclusive set will include My Chemical Romance's "Desolation Row," along with 13 tracks by Tyler Bates.
Lastly, Warner Bros. has released the promo image posted below regarding the upcoming collection of "Watchmen" motion comics on DVD and Blu-ray...
