Tales Of The Black Freighter on DVD?

Posted by boredomfestival on May 26, 2008

A few months back it was reported that TOTBF was going to be an “extra” for the Watchmen DVD. Now it’s apparently going to be an entirely separate DVD…

The twist is that Mr. Snyder, known for turning the Spartan comic book series “300” into a global hit movie, is also directing a separate-but-related picture that Warner plans to distribute exclusively on DVD.

The second film, tentatively called “Tales of the Black Freighter,” follows a side “Watchmen” storyline about a shipwreck and will arrive in stores five days after the main movie rolls out in theaters. The DVD will also include a documentary-style film called “Under the Hood” that will delve into the characters’ backstories.

Interesting. Sounds good to me. Let’s just hope that it’s not done in “anime-style”, as earlier reported…
