Warner Sets ‘Watchmen’ for July 2112 May, 2009 By: John Latchem
Warner Home Video is preparing the superhero epic Watchmen for home video release July 21 (prebook June 9), the week of San Diego Comic-Con International.
The film will be available in three configurations: a bare-bones single-DVD edition at $28.99, a two-DVD special edition at $34.99 and a two-disc Blu-ray version at $35.99.
The DVD and Blu-ray special editions will include a director’s cut of the movie with 25 additional minutes; the featurette “The Phenomenon: The Comic That Changed Comics”; 11 making-of webisodes; and a music video for My Chemical Romance’s “Desolation Row.”
The Blu-ray version also includes additional featurettes and the exclusive immersive “Maximum Movie Mode” hosted by director Zack Snyder, plus additional BD Live features that can be shared on Facebook.
The film earned $107.3 million at the domestic box office.
Warner in March released two Watchmen tie-in videos on DVD and Blu-ray: Tales of the Black Freighter and Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic.
