Tales of the Black Freighter Trailer

The companion piece for The Watchmen movie, The Tales of the Black Freighter will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 10, 2009.

This is just another excellent idea, in a long line of great marketing moves for the highly anticipated film. I know that Alan Moore really hates the idea of his graphic novels being adapted to film. But it's really hard to find fault with The Watchmen adaptation to film. The filmmakers seem intent to take great care that the movie is incredibly faithful to the original story. The fact that they even made "The Tales of the Black Freighter" as an animated feature, to work as a companion piece for the feature film speaks volumes for the entire project.

Of course one can argue it's just another way for the studio to make money.

We'll have to judge for ourselves.
