So is the Black Freighter is woven into the Directors cut of the film, or woven into the Theatrical cut of the film?

i already ordered the black freighter bd with the $5 email offer through warner for preordering the bd

i'm not going to shell out more money just to have that included in the movie and less special features

So the only thing that makes this the director's cut is the black freighter stuff??? There better be some more restored footage.

I enjoy commentary tracks - a lot. I am pretty stoked to hear what Zach and Dave have to say.

Here's the deal... Warner has domestic (US) distribution rights for Watchmen, and they are releasing the Director's Cut on July 28th. It has been this way since they announced it.

Paramount controls the international releases, which will be the Theatrical Cut.

The Ultimate Watchmen is the full integrated version, which is not actually a Director's Cut.

Warner & Snyder have said this from day one. If people are pissed at Warner, then they need to read more than newsgroups & blogs.

The games are abysmal. Don't fall for the bundle pack.
