Watching the Watchmen: DVD, Blu-Ray and Facebook?

When it hits shelves in late July (the official date is still being finalized), the Watchmen Blu-Ray won’t just feature hours of extra footage, motion comics, behind-the-scenes work and commentaries–in addition to all the special features you’d expect, the folks at Warner Bros. have decided to take a new approach to bringing movies and audiences together: Facebook.

Synched-up screenings will take place, allowing people all across the world to talk about and interact with the film in real-time. Of course, this isn’t available for those getting the movie on DVD (don’t worry–all the other features are!), but it seems like it’ll be a cool new way to enjoy films with an even bigger crowd. All in the comfort of your own home!

And, while I’m here and on the topic, take a look at some of the Watchmen figures we’ve got in stock! Nite Owl II is my personal favourite, but we’ve also got Nite Owl I, Rorschach, Dr. Manhattan, the Comedian and more, both in 7-inch and 12-inch form. Definitely worth a look for fans of the film or the original graphic novel!
