Scooped on Thursday, June 25, 2009
The director's cut of Watchmen will play in Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and Dallas for one week beginning July 17. Watchmen director Zack Snyder confirmed the limited release schedule yesterday during a press gathering for the upcoming DVD release of the film.
And in an exclusive interview with CHUD, Snyder shared his thoughts on why the film didn't set the box office on fire like other superhero films. "I don't know," he said to the site. "Not to be snobby or anything, but I think the movie doesn't have the kind of... it asks a lot of the viewer. It's not 'entertaining' in the classic sense of the word. That's just a fact. It's not an action film, it's not a comedy. Dramas are not hot right now, and no one wants to see a dramatic superhero movie. It's inherent in the material. I was kind of surprised by how excited everyone was getting at the time of release, because I always knew the movie was particular. I knew there were [only] certain people who would say 'This is awesome.' "
