Spec'd: Watchmen

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Wednesday, May 13, 2009

After grossing $107 million dollars at North American box offices Warner Home Video is bringing the film adaptation of Watchmen home to video on July 21, 2009. Two versions of the film will be available including a director's cut that adds an additional 25 minutes of material into the screen story.

The standard DVD one-disc version ($28.99) features the 163-minute theatrical cut of the film. The two-disc Director's Cut ($34.99) contains extra material not seen in theaters including the death of former Nite-Owl Hollis Mason and more exploits of the masked vigilante Rorschach. Also included in the two-disc set will be a featurette entitled "The Phenomenon: The Comic that Changed Comics"; 30 minutes of video journals featuring director Zack Snyder; the "Desolation Row" music video by My Chemical Romance; and a digital copy of the theatrical version of the film. The Blu-ray two-disc version ($35.99) includes the same material as the standard two-disc version as well as two additional featurettes, "Real Super Heroes, Real Vigilantes" and "Mechanics: Technologies of a Fantastic World", 30 minutes of Watchmen Focus Points and a Warner Bros. Maximum Movie Mode.

Only $107 million at the US BO. Damn! Looks like we were right when we talked in the forums about how this wouldn't manage to cross the geek to mainstream barrier.

I still need to see this. I was never able to get to the theater, so now it looks like I'm waiting for Blu.
I still contend that Snyder's main fault, if any, was trying too hard to stay faithful to the comic. Henry Selick talked about how he wrote a draft of Coraline that was an almost exact clone of the book. He said it was horrible. It also sounds like that the few things that did get changed didn't work out for the better. So, by keeping it faithful to the comic, I think he lost Joe Moviegoer, and by changing some things, he irked the fanboys. Of course, the studio sees a big-budget R-rated comic book moive "fail," and decrees there will be no more R-rated blockbusters, because the rating is what's keeping it from making money.

Thinking like that is why we got a PG-13 Die Hard and why we're getting a PG-13 Terminator.

yeah, cause when you're being attacked by a terrorist or in 2018 being attacked by a 60' mechanical robot or what looks like your best friend, but is a big old ugly robot.... you'd better watch your darn language!

You sure that was his main fault, and not that his enthusiasm was writing checks his talent couldn't cash?

I'm guessing this extended edition will piss off those fans who feel they were promised an extended cut with chunks of Black Freighter stippled about the fecal strip that was the feature film.

oh, i heard theres still another version of this flick coming out in the first quarter of 2010 with the Black frieghter cartoon spliced into the movie.

My main question with the directors cut was "why?" holy fuck this flick was already 2.5 hours long and you're adding another 27 minutes to it? Jesus Christ, every single scene they added only slows the movie down in rhetoric and banter and keeps pushing the finale off till the viewers cant stand it anymore.

i wish the 27 minutes they filmed was more from the 1940's with the Minutemen and the original night owl, I didnt care anything about Hollis Mason when the thugs killed him in his apartment, I would have liked to have seen more of him in his prime.

P.S. the scene where the gang decides they need to kill Hollis Mason was horribly acted. I mean the dialog was delivered almost stiff and wooden as they come.
