Watchmen Director's Cut Will Be Back in Theaters in July?!
This is a very big IF right now, but as long as everything goes incredibly well on March 6th, it may happen! The music gurus over at VH1 confirmed some quotes from Zack Snyder today about the Watchmen "director's cut," which runs around 3 hours and 10 minutes at the moment. "[It] comes out in July," Snyder told VH1, and it's "considerably more violent than this … and sexier." And apparently if Watchmen does well in March, the director's cut could get a theatrical release in Los Angeles and New York in July. Hot damn! If I were you, I'd make sure you're seeing Watchmen in a few weeks, because I want this happen!
Snyder also talks about the details on the DVD and Blu-Ray, which will be double-dipped with an initial release and a combined secondary release later in the fall, which will contain the Tales of the Black Freighter animated movie spliced into the live-action movie. But considering we're all about theatrical releases, this is very exciting news to hear. I'm kind of amazed that Zack got Warner Brothers to approve this, but if it ends up being as big of a hit as everyone is expecting, then why not? Plus, they need to make up some of their lost costs due to the deal they were forced to make with Fox in January. Make it happen!
