Warner Bros have released a promotional poster detailing what exactly the Ultimate Edition will contain...

Although its unclear what exactly will be spread across these 5 discs and whether this will be released in countries other than the US.

It was also reported earlier this week that the UK Blu-ray edition will have several more special features than the US edition due to it being released by a different distributor including Video Journals, Webisodes, Viral Videos and the Theatrical Cut of the film currently unavailable elsewhere as well as a Digital Copy exclusive to the UK so it seem possible that these features could be in the Ultimate Edition.

i cant believe that the UK is getting so many more special features than the US-that NEVER happens!!

I'm blown away that they need 5 discs for Blu-Ray.

Those can hold up to 25GB...
LEEE777 - 7/10/2009, 1:16 PM
KEV @ I liked UNDER THE HOOD more than the Black feightor, what about you??

Anil @ Hell yeah!!! ; )

Tucson @ I THINK ITS JUST FOR THE dvd set for the 5 DISC set!
superdog - 7/10/2009, 1:56 PM
5 disc? jesus thats alot
superdog - 7/10/2009, 2:51 PM
I agree kev. 5 discs seems like a waste. I probly won't splurge for this either
RorMachine - 7/10/2009, 3:14 PM
Well, there could be all sorts of documentaries and interviews and stuff. Look at the LOTR special editions, those had 4 discs and all were well worth it.
longbowhunter - 7/10/2009, 3:18 PM
While I'd like to see Black Freighter woven into the movie I dont see me getting this. The movie was by far the summers best, but I've been burned in the past with sets like this before. Pay out $40 dollars or more and only about a quarter of the content is worth seeing.
superdog - 7/10/2009, 3:41 PM
Longbowhunter@ I agree

ror@ you have a good point, but the lotr were each like 3 hours long and filmed over years. I gotta think they had alot of extra stuff that lots of other movies wouldn't have
vonstallin - 7/10/2009, 3:45 PM
pass.
DonkeyPuncher - 7/10/2009, 4:11 PM
holy balls thats alot
DonkeyPuncher - 7/10/2009, 4:13 PM
im getting this for sure
BmanHall - 7/10/2009, 4:18 PM
Rorschach01 speaks the truth. Granted not all movies require extended additions. But this one should be worth it. Just as long as they don't extend the love scene between Silk Spectre and Nite Owl...
JoshWilding - 7/10/2009, 4:21 PM
i think that the directors cut will be enough for me - im not that interested in a pile of documentries (theres already loads on the directors cut) and commentaries - besides i already have Under The Hood and Black Frieghter so wouldnt want them again. as for frieghter being integrated into the movie-seeing as that was actually my least favourite part of the graphic novel im not intrested inpaying extra for that feature.
bleedthefreak - 7/10/2009, 4:49 PM
im gonna wait until a 6 disc set comes out. isnt this like the fourth dvd release for this movie. i was not impressed enough to spend what will probably be 80 dollars on this i was not a big fan of this movie compared to the novel.
BillyBlack - 7/10/2009, 5:07 PM
I gotta say I'm with Keven on this.

5 disc Ultimate Edition seems like a whole lot of filler, and if you've already got most of the pieces, this really isn't worth it. The clever dick who waited, and will continue to wait, for this seems like the only one who will really make out on this deal.
McStitch - 7/10/2009, 5:22 PM
Well guys i am a fence sitter on this one ror makes a very vaild point. i have the box sets for lord of the rings with the figures and shit (im a collector). But 5 discs seems like a bit of an over load unless there devoting 2 discs to allan more which sadly we know will never happen! black frieghter woven in sounds pretty sweet but that being said if it gets realeased in Oz it will cost $120 [frick]ing bucks! the joy of down under lol
mativ16 - 7/10/2009, 5:32 PM
TDK was better then this movie. But seriously this better be the Ultimate one. I don't wanna have to spend another $50 on 1 that's comes out 2 months later.
HAQ - 7/10/2009, 5:37 PM
Gotta own this - no question.
Xandera - 7/10/2009, 6:19 PM
I have to admit I'm a bit of an Extra feature junky... but 5 discs! Sweet merciful crap... that's a lot of extras...



I'll probably buy it.
CloSeTNerD29 - 7/10/2009, 7:06 PM
Wasnt the End is Nigh Watchmen video game also suppose 2 be on it? im getting it for sure!
CorndogBurglar - 7/10/2009, 7:25 PM
@ Closetnerd

Yeah the PS3 version is supposedly on the blu-ray version...too bad that game licked scrote
superdog - 7/10/2009, 7:38 PM
Corndog@ hilarious. Licked scrote. You know what else licks scrote? You guessed it SUPERMIKE
Xandera - 7/10/2009, 7:47 PM
Superdog@ LMAO!!!!
CloSeTNerD29 - 7/10/2009, 8:29 PM
Yeah i never played it.. Heard it wasnt bad, but not amazing!
Shadowelfz - 7/10/2009, 9:30 PM
5 Disc? I mean, I know the movie is long... but damn! ;)
gibbyblaylock - 7/10/2009, 11:50 PM
I purposely didn't buy Tales of the Black Freighter because I knew they'd do this. But i'm bummed out because they aren't releasing the ultimate edition 'til flippin' CHRISTMAS! BOOOOO!
Remy83 - 7/11/2009, 3:19 AM
i gotta say i'm gonna buy this even though i know that months later they will have the dragon special edition which will come with a figure of silk specter and she will have ball licking action buttons.lol
MatchesMalone - 7/11/2009, 9:37 AM
I don't know why everyone thinks 5 discs is so many. The Superman box set has 14!(7 movies, 7 discs of extras)
MatchesMalone - 7/11/2009, 9:56 AM
2 versions of 1, 2 versions of 2, 3, 4 and Returns.
MatchesMalone - 7/11/2009, 11:07 AM
I actually did try to watch that once just 4 the f of it. It was... ...painful.
RolandOfGilead - 7/11/2009, 1:27 PM
I'm totally buying this dvd set!!!
RolandOfGilead - 7/11/2009, 2:55 PM
Never saw the Molemen movie, but Matches let me in on a little secret...it sucked horribly!
2sdaychicken - 7/11/2009, 9:52 PM
How is 5 discs a lot? This is practically a COLLECTION for chissakes.

1) Watchmen (Theatrical, DC, DC+ToBF)
2) ToBF/ Under Hood
3) Motion Comics
4) Extras
5) More extras, Digital Copy, End is Nigh Game, etc...

Hell, alot of stuff on Discs 1 and 5 prolly cant fit on 1 disc....
JoshWilding - 7/12/2009, 3:32 AM
If this is coming out on blu-ray as well it could almost definitely fit on just one disc but then it wouldnt look as impressive so they'll use loads of discs, a big box and slap a huge price tag on instead!
AndreiDent - 7/12/2009, 5:14 AM
i loved WATCHMEN i will but it no matter the price adn cant wait to see TOTVF it will be sooooo sweet
rawshark - 7/12/2009, 12:25 PM
to everyone worried what the content on the 5 discs would be, I give you this:
tales of the black freighter, under the hood, watchmen motion comic(all 12 issues),
as well as numerous featurettes/etc .......
this I found on line from bleedingcool ...
Check it out.
Sorry to anyone who bought the watchmen dvd's before. It looks like this 5-disc set will be the one to own.

-nice.
