Warner Brothers is pushing out the final marketing and promotional materials for Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation. The film arrives in theaters next month and the studio wants you to be prepared for the event. In an exclusive press release, Warner’s Premiere is announcing the release of Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic. This is a DVD that covers all twelve chapters of the Watchmen graphic novel, and adds “motion, voice and sound to the book’s strikingly drawn panels.” It will be available for retail sale on March 3, which is the Tuesday before the film hits theaters.
More on the DVD after the jump.
