Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter (R2/UK BD) in April
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the UK DVD and Blu-ray Disc release of Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter on 6th April 2009. From the director of Watchmen and 300 come two tales from the celebrated graphic novel that do not appear in the new Watchmen film. Tales of the Black Freighter (featuring the voice of 300’s Gerard Butler) brings to animated life the novel's story-within-a-story, a daring pirate saga whose turbulent events may mirror those in the Watchmens’ world. Stars from the Watchmen movie feature in the live-action/CGI Under the Hood, based on Nite Owl’s first-hand account of how the hooded adventurers came into existence.
Priced at £9.99 RRP on DVD and £14.99 RRP on Blu-ray Disc, both sets include the main feature (25mins) and special features (84mins). The DVD is presented in anamorphic widescreen with English DD5.1 Surround audio, while the Blu-ray is 1080P with English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio. Extras include:
- Under the Hood
- Story Within a Story: The Books of Watchmen - How Tales of the Black Freighter and Under the Hood connect to and expand the world of Watchmen, with a unique analogy to the character arc of Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias
- Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 1
- A First Look at DC Universe's animated Green Lantern
