Black Freighter deets

01.30.2009

The story within a story that runs through Alan Moore's "Watchmen" graphic novel, a pirate tale titled "Tales of the Black Freighter", is just one of the many things that makes the seminal graphic novel so iconic and groundbreaking. Realizing this, WATCHMEN director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. decided to adapt the story into an animated film and release it as a stand-alone DVD/Blu-ray. Today, we have our first look at the cover art for both and some details. In addition to THE BLACK FREIGHTER, both will have a first look at the GREEN LANTERN feature film adaptation, a feature titled "Story Within A Story: The Books of Watchmen" and the live action/CGI hybrid documentary "Under the Hood", in which one of the superheroes in the film, Hollis Mason aka the original Nite Owl, chronicles the rise of the costumed superheroes within the Watchmen world. The DVD and Blu-ray will hit stores on March 24th and WATCHMEN will open on March 6th.

Not a fan of the Freighter

I liked the story, but it was a bit cliche. All in all I always find myself eventually skipping over the Black Freighter parts to get to get back to the story. So ultimately while I like the idea of an animated Black Freighter story, I don't think I want to shell out extra just to experience it.

Uhm...

Hopefully they removed this from the movie and that's why they are releasing it seperately. And by the way, what are "deets"?

WOW ...

... and I mean: WOW!!!! First Watchmen Motion Comic, then viral campaign, then movie and then Black Freighter DVD and Blue Ray with documentary. I gotta give it to Warner - this is even better promotion than TDK. Maybe we have a new BO hit of the year here ...

Whoa, wait a second... Green Lantern?

Seriously? A first look at the Green Lantern movie? I mean I was going to buy this anyway but the GL bit means I'm going to be counting the days until this comes out.
