As WATCHMEN slowly arrives, we're getting some more information on the film's runtime through director Zack Snyder and his wife, producer Deborah Snyder, who says "We're getting really close... We're at two hours and thirty five minutes." However, there will also be a director's cut version of the film that features the movie within a movie, TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER.
"The Black Freighter version of the movie that we're working on--which has the ins and outs of the Black Freighter comic book woven through it, with an animated version of the Black Freighter--will be about three hours and 40 minutes... So there's a huge epic version of Watchmen, which will probably come out after the movie's theatrical release, for hardcore [fans]."
I know most of you are wetting your pants over this thing, and believe me I am too. Jackie Earle Haley's Rorschach voice makes me wish he played Batman (wow, that's gonna hurt my inbox). But I am concerned at how everything seems to be in slow motion. I'm worried when we say two and a half hours we actually mean half an hour super slowed down.

|Extra Tidbit:||Also, I don't understand why people complain about movie lengths being too long. If it's something that is obviously gonna suck ass like MAID IN MANHATTAN or something, yeah keep that shit trim. But in something that will so obviously own, I don't care if it's four hours. Hell I would LIKE that.|
