MoviesOnline sat down this week with Watchmen and 300 director Zack Snyder and Watchmen illustrator Dave Gibbons to talk about the Watchmen Motion Comic and The Tales of the Black Freighter spin-off DVD. The home video releases are intended to complement the upcoming theatrical release of Watchmen.

Warner Premiere’s Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic explodes onto Blu-Ray and DVD March 3rd from Warner Home Video and offers audiences a completely new way to experience the acclaimed graphic novel prior to Watchmen’s March 6th Theatrical Release. Overseen by Dave Gibbons, Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic contains all 12 chapters of “Watchmen,” the most celebrated graphic novel of all time, adding motion, voice and sound to the book’s strikingly drawn panels, spanning everything from the mysterious demise of the Comedian to the crisscrossed destinies of loosely allied superheroes to their fateful impact on the world. The 12 approximately 30-minute chapters were previously available exclusively as iTunes downloads. Produced by Zack Snyder, Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic was colored by John Higgins and narrated by Tom Stechschulte.

The Tales of the Black Freighter is a special animated DVD feature and Blu-Ray film of a comic book within a graphic novel based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s original Watchmen. It follows the adventures of a castaway and a phantom pirate ship and features the voice of Gerard Butler. The spin-off DVD which features a subplot from Watchmen stays true to the vision, tone and imagery of the original graphic novel. The DVD is set for a March 24th release and includes a recreation of Watchmen’s “Under the Hood,” a fictional, autobiographical film about the story’s original Night Owl, Hollis Mason. While there was no room for the Black Freighter material in the theatrical release version, it will be fully integrated into the extended cut that Snyder fondly refers to as “the kitchen sink version” with a run time of 3 hours, 25 minutes.

Zack Snyder and Dave Gibbons are fabulous guys and we really appreciated their time. Here’s what they had to tell us about the Watchmen Motion Comic and The Tales of the Black Freighter:
