Official press release bit:
Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, also featuring Nite Owl’s autobiography Under the Hood, storms onto DVD & Blu-ray on April 6 2009 ~
Offering audiences two essential Watchmen background stories, experience the exclusive and dramatic origin – essential to the Watchmen experience – as the comic-within-the-comic and Night Owl’s autobiography are brought to life when Paramount Home Entertainment releases Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, FEATURING Under the Hood on DVD & Blu-ray on April 6 2009.
Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, the story within the highly anticipated Watchmen features the voices of Gerard Butler (300) and Jared Harris (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Executively produced by Watchmen director Zack Snyder, the feature is directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio and Mike Smith.
Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter brings to strikingly animated life the graphic novel’s richly layered story. Within the graphic novel, Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, appears as a comic book read by a young man in New York City while the city is being destroyed.
This daring pirate saga chronicles a sailor’s journey home from being marooned. During his journey, the young seaman is “forced by the urgency of his mission to shed one inhibition after another” and experience horrible events along the way. The turbulent events the sailor endures seem to mirror those in the Watchmen’s world.
Hollis Mason’s tell-all autobiography, Under the Hood, chronicles the events in Hollis Mason’s life that led to him becoming the masked avenger Nite Owl and discusses how the Minutemen were formed. It features the original Sally Spectre, the Comedian, Moloch the Mystic, along with Hollis Mason, the original Nite Owl.
Under the Hood is directed by Eric Matthies and also stars Carla Gugino, Matt Frewer, Stephen McHattie and Jeffrey Dean Morgan appear as their characters from the theatrical Watchmen film in this live-action documentary-style special.
Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter, FEATURING Under the Hood is available to buy on DVD & Blu-ray from April 6 2009 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
