Watch this excellent feature on Zack Snyder’s Tales of the Black Freighter, the animated companion piece to Watchmen.
It includes news clips from the story together with commentary from various members of the cast and crew, including Gerard Butler (voice of the main character, the Mariner), Dave Gibbons (co-creator and writer of the graphic novel), Lloyd Levin (producer), Tyler Bates (music composer) and of course Zack Snyder himself.
Zack Snyder will in time release a director’s cut of Watchmen that will include Tales of the Black Freighter woven into the feature film itself. How he’ll manage this is anybody’s guess, but it sounds cool. You’ll have to wait a while for this to happen though, whereas Tales of the Black Freighter will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray March 24.
