Thanks to Paramount Home Entertainment, Moviehole has 5 copies of “Watchmen : Tales of the Black Freighter” (out April 22) to Giveaway on DVD.
A spin-off of the Zack Snyder’s hit film, “Black Freighter” is based on a comic-book that features heavily in the graphic novel and film. The plot revolves around a mariner who is marooned on a distant island after his ship is attacked by the infamous pirate ship, the Black Freighter. He begins to imagine the Black Freighter setting sail for his hometown â€“ and attacking his family â€“ and engages in a desperate mission to return home and save his wife and children. Along the way, fear and desperation begin to play tricks with his mind, and rob the mariner of his sanity â€“ leading him to commit atrocities of his own as he tries to stop the marauding pirates. As told within the Watchmen graphic novel, the story acts as a distorted mirror image of the Watchmen super heroes plight.
”Tales of the Black Freighter” features the voices of Gerard Butler (”300”) and Jared Harris (”The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”) and is directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio and Mike Smith and written by Tse and Zack Snyder.
An extra feature, the fake documentary ‘Under the Hood’ is also on the DVD. This is the autobiography of Hollis Mason, a character featured in the book/film, where he explains the events leading up to the time when he became the masked adventurer Nick named Nite Owl, and discusses the formation of ”The Minutemen’.
