The film is set to be released on March 6... BUT for the fans of the graphic novel (SUCH AS MYSELF) There is something I'm really excited for. TALES OF THE BLACK FREIGHTER! It's being released as a driect-to-video film and it's going to be intense.
For those of you that don't know, Tales of the Black Freighter was a graphic novel inside the novel that was correlated to the plot of the story. It's about a man who is stranded on a dessert island after being attacked by a ship called the black freighter, everyone in his crew dies except for him. The entire story is about this man trying to get off the island, he goes crazy, buries his dead men, then digs them back up to construct a raft from their dead bodies, so on and so forth.
Gonna be intense. CAN'T WAIT Tales of the Black Freighter will be released March 24.
Black Freighter will be animated, and was going to be included in the watchmen movie itself but had to be cut out due to budget restrictions, Synder is talking of releasing the DVD for watchmen 4months after the Freighter and is considering including the animated film in the Movie as it was intended. This will bring the running time of the movie to 3hr25min. Ha! that's extreme.
