Without Under the Hood, the main Watchmen story is only a loose piece in a giant puzzle of intricate storytelling.
Eric Matthies, the man behind many DVD bonuses for massive productions such as 300 or The Matrix Trilogy, directed the direct-to-DVD Under the Hood, transforming the fake book into a fake TV program.
The film will be attached to the Tales of the Black Freighter DVD.
Wired recently had a Q&A with Matthies that you can read over here.
In the meantime, here are a few extracts from the Under the Hood/Black Freighter DVD that came out today.
