AceShowbiz - While the distribution right is still hanging on a balance, "Watchmen" unveils a new featurette that has director Zack Snyder on commentary. Snyder, who also directed the epic drama "300", gives his insight on why "Watchmen" the comic is one of the things he wants to lift as a live-action movie.
Snyder also shares deeper his knowledge of each character including Nite Owl, Rorschach, Silk Spectre and The Comedian. The footage not only presents the close up look to each of the heroes and their dilemmas, but also some never-before-seen scenes.
"Watchmen" is scheduled to hit the U.S. theaters on March 6 but the legal battle between Warner Bros and Fox throws a possibility that there will be a delay. In a recent court outcome, Fox have won the distribution right over Warner but Warner issued a statement afterwards, saying that they will fight for an appeal so that the movie will see the light of day on time.
Adapted from a 1980s comic book of the same name, "Watchmen" tells the story of a band of superheroes in the alternate 1985 America where superheroes are commonly part of the society. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, Rorschach sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.
