‘Watchmen: Tales Of The Black Freighter & Under The Hood’ DVD Specs Released

It’s been a heckuva a week for those of us looking forward to the wide-release of “Watchmen” — from our exclusive clip of My Chemical Romance’s offering to the soundtrack, to all-new posters and images, to exclusive interviews with director Zack Snyder — if there’s still anyone out there not excited for the March 6 release, then they’re just not paying attention.

And Warner Bros. has added the icing to the proverbial cake this afternoon, by releasing the specs to the accompanying DVD and Blu-ray collection of “Watchmen: The Black Freighter & Under the Hood” (the stories within the story for those of you who haven’t read the comic). After the jump, we’ll run down what fans can expect from the set.

Available on DVD and Blu-ray on March 24, 2009, “Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood” features the vocal talents of Gerard Butler, and also offers the featurette “Story Within a Story: The Books of the Watchmen” which explores the comic-within-a-comic of Watchmen. It also includes the first chapter of the “Watchmen” motion comic, and a first look at the “Green Lantern” direct-to-DVD animated feature. Meanwhile, those who pick up the Blu-ray edition of this will get the Blu-ray exclusive featurette “The Why of the Watchmen” by Zack Snyder, and “The Two Bernies” which features a scene from “Watchen” not seen in theaters.

Will you be picking up this on DVD or Blu-ray? What do you think of DC animated DVD offerings so far? Let’s hear it in the comments.
