    Oh, sweet. I'm a huge fan of Watchmen and was wondering how this was going to get handled. Count me in!

    FYI: Under the Hood isn't animated, it's a combination of live action and CGI.

    I'll definitely be picking this one up as well.

    Well, I'll definitely preorder it from Amazon. Seeing as how this doesn't come out until nearly three weeks after the movie, I'll be cancelling it if I don't like the movie, though. [​IMG]

    I'll give it a rental but am waiting for the huge mega set that I'm sure we'll get once the movie itself comes out on Blu-ray/DVD.

    IIRC - this was content that was originally suppose to be part of Watchmen but was cut out due to length so there is also some speculation that this might show up in a Director's Cut of the film.

    i really hope they do incorporate it into the film for home.

    also I wonder, why 3 weeks after the movie.

    Probably so it doesn't conflict with sales for their motion comic release.

    I have almost no interest in the motion comic but depending on how I feel about the movie, I may pick this up.

    Yeah, I'll be skipping a double dip of this and not buying at first. Since I've read the story countless times it won't kill me to wait a bit.
