Posted Wed Sep 23, 2009 at 11:30 AM PDT by

As we reported back in July, the ultimate gift for 'Watchmen' fans is coming for the holidays.

Warner Brothers has just officially announced that 'Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut' is headed to Blu-ray on November 3.

The 4-disc set will present Zack Snyder's 'Watchmen: Director's Cut' with the "Tales of the Black Freighter" comic-within-a-comic actually woven into the film for a complete 'Watchmen' experience.

Instead of the Maximum Movie Mode found on the Director's Cut already released, The Ultimate Cut will include two new audio commentaries with Zack Snyder and Dave Gibbons. This release will also include: The Phenomenon: The Comic that Changed the World; Real Super Heroes, Real Vigilantes; Mechanics: Technologies of a Fantastic World; Watchmen: Video Journals; and My Chemical Romance Music Video.

But that's not all, folks. Also included will be the 'Under the Hood' mockumentary as well as the 'Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic' making for one ultimate 'Watchmen' release.

'Watchmen: The Ultimate Cut' will be limited to 70,000 copies and we have an advertising image of the product below:

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $59.95.
