The Latest from ‘The Watchmen’

posted by Nell Minow

One of the most intriguing elements of the graphic novel is the excerpts from other documents that provide a glimpse into the story’s layered and fullly-imagined world. Warner Home Video is supplementing the feature film release with Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood, exploring these elements of the book. “Tales of the Black Freighter” is an animated film version of the graphic novel’s richly layered story-within-a-story, a comic book pirate story read by a young man in New York City while the city is being destroyed. A marooned sailor’s story mirrors the events in the Watchmen’s world. “300′s” Gerard Butler provides voice talent. And we get one perspective on the origins of the Watchmen from Hollis Mason’s tell-all autobiography, “Under the Hood.”

    I love comics. This is a great and interesting story.

    I was kind of hoping that both “Tales of the Black Freighter” and “Under the Hood” would be incorporated into the actual movie, but I guess that would probably make the already 2 hr 45 minutes flick about 4 and a half hours long … Too much for even the most serious comic book geek, I suppose!

    Keith, you won’t be surprised to hear that they expect to do a deluxe DVD with everything in one. The serious comic book geeks will have plenty to love.
