‘Watchmen’ director’s cut to bigscreen

Warners sets one-week release at four venues

Warner Bros. has set a one-week theatrical release for Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of “Watchmen” on July 17 at four venues in Dallas, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and New York.

Snyder made the announcement Wednesday during an event at the studio to promote the DVD and Blu-ray releases of “Watchmen: The Director’s Cut” and “300: The Complete Experience” on July 21.

Snyder’s cut contains 25 additional minutes of footage. He had indicated during the March premiere that a theatrical release of the longer version was under consideration.

The theatrical run takes place during the week before Comic-Con, where Snyder is set to host a July 25 “BD Live” screening of “Watchmen.” Owners of the Blu-ray version will be able to use the BD Live feature to watch the movie and discussion at Comic-Con simultaneously.
