An interesting collection of video, podcasts, trailers and more for the hotly-anticipated movie version of classic graphic novel, ‘Watchmen’, has been made available through iTunes.
The collection includes unique features about the film, along with an iPhone/iPod touch application designed to deliver these assets to users of those Apple mobile devices.
It includes exclusive “Watchmen” film sequence, previously only shown at San Diego’s Comic-Con Convention; the Essential Watchmen app for iPhone and iPod touch; multiple behind-the-scenes video journal podcasts; film clips; trailers; and other features exploring the creation of one of the most anticipated films of 2009.
Additionally, original Motion Comic Episodes are available on iTunes for individual download or through a season pass. Warner Premiere’s Motion Comics are short-form digital content designed for comics fans.
New and exclusive content will be continually added to the iTunes store through the release of the film, which opens in the US on March 6, 2009.
The film is set in an alternate 1985 America in which costumed superheroes are part of the fabric of everyday society, and the “Doomsday Clock” – which charts the USA’s tension with the Soviet Union – is set at five minutes to midnight. When one of his former colleagues is murdered, one of the crew sets out to uncover a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes.
