A rep for Warner Bros. dropped us some information on the Watchmen film, which will return to theaters in July — only this time, it will be the director’s cut — “Zack Snyder’s full interpretation,” which will include deleted scenes. It is about 24 minutes longer, clocking in at a little more than three hours.
It’ll only be showing in four different cities July 17-23: AMC Empire 25, 234 W. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10036 AMC Media Plaza 6 (AKA Town Center 6), 770 N. 1st Street, Burbank, CA 91501 AMC Mesquite 30, 19919 IH 635, Mesquite, TX 75149 Kerasotes Block E 15 Theaters, 600 Hennepin Ave S., Minneapolis, MN 55403

Note that the film’s release will coincide with the San Diego Comic-Con (July 22-26). If you’re getting to San Diego early and really want to see the extended film, the drive to Burbank may be worth it. (Although driving through L.A. really sucks, so be prepared).
Also, Watchmen is set to come out on DVD and Blu-Ray July 21. The Hollywood Reporter has more information on a screening at the San Diego Comic-Con and how they’re using Blu-Ray voodoo to allow you to participate in the screening and panel from your living room.
