Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 24th a couple weeks after we would have all seen 'Watchmen' 2 or 3 or 4 times. This DVD follows a major sub-story within 'Watchmen'. It is interesting to note that  WHV’s official website lists the DVD rating as PG-13 and the Blu-Ray version as Not Rated, we were told that it would be rated 'R' so not sure whats going on with that. Maybe they thought it would go rated 'R' but MPAA came back with PG-13. Here is the official Press Release:

They're in the book. And on this disc. From the director of Watchmen and 300 come two tales from the celebrated graphic novel that do not appear in the extraordinary Watchmen Theatrical Feature. Tales of the Black Freighter (featuring the voice of 300s Gerard Butler) brings to strikingly animated life the novels richly layered story-within-a-story, a daring pirate saga whose turbulent events may mirror those in the Watchmen's world. Stars from the Watchmen movie team in the amazing live-action/CGI Under the Hood, based on Nite Owls powerful first-hand account of how the hooded adventurers came into existence. Two fan-essential stories. One place to watch the excitement. Watching the Watchmen begins here.
