Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut DVD and Blu-ray Detailed


imageWarner Home Video has provided us with the Features and Artwork for the DVD and Blu-ray release of the highly anticipated 4 and 5-Disc ‘Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut’ starring Malin Akerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Patrick Wilson.

‘The Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut’ is a new and final version of the blockbuster film from director Zack Snyder. This version weaves ‘Tales of the Black Freighter’ (featuring the voice of Gerard Butler) into the ‘Watchmen Director’s Cut’ film, with 2 all new commentaries by director Zack Snyder and illustrator Dave Gibbons. That makes this the perfect gift for every die hard fan of the graphic novel.

‘Tales of the Black Freighter’ brings to strikingly animated life the novels richly layered story-within-a-story, a daring pirate saga whose turbulent events may mirror those in the Watchmen’s world. This delectably dark animated short tells the gruesome tale of a shipwrecked sailor (voiced by Gerard Butler) forced to go to horrific lengths — including building a raft of corpses — to return home and warn his family of an imminent attack by an evil pirate ship.

Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut DVD and Blu-ray, based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, will be available to own beginning November 3, 2009. The official DVD Artwork and Bonus Materials have been added below. ‘Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut’ is available for pre-order on 5-Disc DVD and 4-Disc Blu-ray.

Synopsis: In an alternate 1985 America, costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is permanently set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, the washed-up but no less determined masked vigilante Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his former crime-fighting legion – a ragtag group of retired superheroes, only one of whom has true powers – Rorschach glimpses a wide-ranging and disturbing conspiracy with links to their shared past and catastrophic consequences for the future. Their mission is to watch over humanity…but who is watching the Watchmen?
