Watchmen Director's Cut cinema release dates
Watchmen: Director's cut was set for a cinema release a while back, which I would have happily gone along to and watched.
But after the news that the number of cinemas was being reduced, they have announced exactly where the Director's Cut will be seen. Looks like a lot of us will be waiting for the Blu-ray DVD.
Zack Snyder had planned on releasing Watchmen: Director's Cut, on a large scale. But perhaps due to the amount of money Watchmen (Filmstalker review) made, there were rumours that it was to be scaled down. Now we know where it will be appearing.
Zack Snyder, on Collider, said that the film will be appearing in one theatre, for one weekend:
the weekend before Comic-Con in Los Angeles, Dallas, Minneapolis, and New York.
So if you live in one of these cities, you at least have a chance of seeing it in the cinema. We believe the extra footage revolves around the first Nite Owl, Hollis Mason. And no doubt there will be lots of other new stuff in there too. I suppose the fact that the Directors Cut is being released in cinemas this soon, is something in itself.
I reckon I'll be hiring it on Blu-ray, and then buying the ultimate DVD, with The Black Freighter included. What about you?
