'Watchmen: Ultimate Collector's Edition' Blu-ray in December

Posted Fri Jul 10, 2009 at 07:00 AM PDT by

The ultimate gift for 'Watchmen' fans is coming for the holidays.

A flyer included with the 'Watchmen: Director's Cut' Blu-ray (available in stores July 21) reveals that a 5-disc 'Watchmen: Ultimate Collector's Edition' will head to Blu-ray this December.

This monolithic edition will present Zack Snyder's Director's Cut with the "Tales of the Black Freighter" comic-within-a-comic actually woven into the film for a complete 'Watchmen' experience.

While it's worth noting this release will be missing most of the supplements (like the awesome maximum movie mode) found on the version due to hit stores in a couple of weeks, it will contain a new commentary by Dave Gibbons and Zack Snyder and two hours of bonus material, including the "Under the Hood" mockumentary. It appears the 'Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic' will be included as well.

The final bit of info is that the insert makes mention of $10.00 off for those who register with WB Insider Rewards.

The flyer can be seen below:

There's no word on a specific release date or suggested list price yet for 'Watchmen: Ultimate Collector's Edition' but we expect that info to come trickling in within the coming weeks.
