Warner Home Video has unwrapped fresh details on the forthcoming Blu-ray release of Watchmen: Director’s Cut, detailing the film’s technical specifications and special features.
As expected, the flick will be presented in glorious 1080p VC-1 accompanied by an ear-popping 5.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtrack. The film itself clocks in at 3 hours and 10 minutes.
Extras featured in the package include the following:
·Maximum Movie Mode (BD exclusive)
·Watchmen: Focus Points
·The Phenomenon: The Comic that Changed Comics
·Real Super Heroes, Real Vigilantes (BD exclusive)
·Mechanics: Technologies of a Fantastic World (BD exclusive)
·Music Video: Desolation Row (My Chemical Romance)
·Digital Copy (theatrical version)
For the less technical savvy among us, the Maximum Movie Mode allows for split screen viewing of the film so viewers can get a better grasp on various elements in the director’s commentary.
Watchmen: Director’s Cut will be released on July 21 alongside its DVD counterpart.

It's the codec that's used to encode the video onto the blu-ray disk.

3 hours and 10 minutes? That better be the theatrical version. I heard the extended edition would be like 4 hours long, which is what it needs to add in as much footage as possible. The biggest problem with the movie was that it didn't include enough content, and wasn't long enough for the viewer to really get emotionally involved.
