Liked Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen”? Wished it was longer? How about seeing the same movie in theaters again, except 25 minutes longer? Well you’re in luck, buckaroos, because via Variety Warner Bros. has announced that they will be re-releasing the director’s cut of Snyder’s comic book movie “Watchmen” back into theaters on July 17 for a limited one-week run. Don’t get excited just yet: the WB will be putting the film back into theaters in only four cities — Dallas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York.
For those who couldn’t get enough of Doctor Manhattan and company, Snyder’s Director’s Cut will contain 25 additional minutes not included in the film’s original theatrical run earlier this year. The re-release is, of course, going to be used to promote the movie’s impending DVD release, which will include said Director’s Cut. The July 17th date will also be one week before Comic-Con, where Snyder will hold a BD Live screening of “Watchmen” on July 25th. Blu-ray version owners will be able to use the BD Live feature to watch the movie and discussion at Comic-Con simultaneously.
What could possibly be in a Director’s Cut of “Watchmen”, you ask? How about more Silk Spectre? Okay, I don’t know that for sure, but one can only hope, right?
