Topic: Watchmen The Ultimate Cut: The Complete Story (DVD & Bluray)
Didnt realize this was coming out so soon. I know the DVD/Blu-ray that came out recently was the "directors cut" but this is the Ultimate cut. So what is so different? It is a 5 DVD (or 4 Blu-ray disc) collection. The movie itself is the directors cut along with the Tales of the Black Freighter and Under the Hood (the hollis mason bio) intertwined in the story, just like in the graphic novel. Here is how the discs break down (for the blu ray edition at least)
* Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut Film (rated R), weaving together the "Tales of the Black Freighter" & "Under the Hood" with the "Watchmen: Director's Cut". Run-time: 215 minutes
* Audio Commentary with Zack Snyder and Dave Gibbons
* The Phenomenon: The Comic That Changed Comics
* Real Super Heroes, Real Vigilantes
* Mechanics: Technologies of a Fantastic World
* Watchmen: Video Journals
* My Chemical Romance Desolation Row
* Under the Hood (rated PG)
* Story Within a Story: The Books of Watchmen
* Digital Copy of the Theatrical Version.
* Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comics (this is split across two discs on the non-Blu-ray edition) 325 minutes
So it comes with a LOT of stuff. I havent bought Watchmen yet but I may rent this first just to see how the movie comes off with the Black Freighter and Under the Hood stuff woven in. Only thing that sucks is this is the only way you can watch the film as it doesnt come with a standard directors cut without the animated stuff woven in. Oh well.
This comes out November 3rd so we shall see how it turns out. Cover art below:
