Watchmen Director's Cut Will Hit Theaters on July 17th
This isn't an official announcement (I don't know why Warner Brothers hasn't made one yet), but our good friend Frosty over at Collider talked with Zack Snyder himself today and got re-confirmation that the extended Director's Cut of Watchmen will indeed be officially hitting theaters on July 17th, the weekend before Comic-Con. He confirmed that it will only show for one weekend in one theater in only Los Angeles, Dallas, Minneapolis, and New York City. So if you live in one of those four cities, you'll want to make sure you buy your tickets in advance for this re-release. I know I'm already planning to be there!
I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am to see this movie again. Over the last few months I've been getting a nagging desire to see Watchmen again in theaters, maybe because over time I've started to think about it so much more. And thankfully not only will I have that opportunity, but I'll get to see the extended Director's Cut, which I'm genuinely excited to see. Zack said that they've made an extra poster to promote this re-release and will even be advertising it. As has been reported previously, there is at least an extra 25 minutes of footage, though I'm sure we'll get exact numbers closer to July 17th. See you in theaters!
