Recently, husband and wife team, Director Zack and Producer Deborah Snyder, spoke with SCI FI Wire about the final cut of Watchmen. As the film progresses it is continually getting shorter. Although the final length hasn’t been approved yet, at least 25 minutes have been cut out of the film. Here is what they had to say:
“We’re getting really close,” producer Deborah Snyder said in a telephone interview on Nov. 18. “We’re at two hours and 35 minutes.”
Director Zack Snyder added: “The movie’s pretty long … compared to 300, which was an hour and 58 minutes. The director’s cut [of Watchmen] is about three hours and 10 minutes long. It has even more than the theatrical version as far as the detail that gets even closer to the graphic novel.”
