For “Watchmen” fans, along with the film’s March 6 wide release, March 24 has been another date that we’ve all been counting down to, as tomorrow marks the on-sale date of “Watchmen: Tales Of The Black Freighter” and “Under the Hood” — and at last, we can witness the full “Watchmen” experience. And to whet our ravenous geek appetite, the folks over at Warner Premiere have sent us three new images from the animated adventure.
After the jump, we’ve got the rest of the nightmarish, cannibalistic pirate goodness.
As we mentioned, “Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter” — featuring the vocal talents of “300” star Gerard Butler — ships out tomorrow on DVD and Blu-ray, and includes the Minutemen pseudo-doc, “Under the Hood,” starring the cast from the film reprising their roles as the original do-gooders gone horribly bad. Along with the headlining movies, the 2-disc set also includes a first-look at “Green Lantern: First Flight,” and bonus featurettes “Story Within a Story: The Books of the Watchmen” which explores the comic-within-a-comic of “Watchmen,” “The Why of the Watchmen” by Zack Snyder, and “The Two Bernies” showing a scene from “Watchmen” not seen in theaters (the latter two only available on the Blu-ray edition of the set).
Let’s hear it, “Watchmen” fans — are you going to be picking up this DVD/Blu-ray set tomorrow? If you do, we’d love to hear some citizen reviews in the comments.
