Just a couple additional updates to report this morning on Warner Bros’ Watchmen on top of the trial news reported earlier this morning. First up, Warner Bros. has launched a new viral site: TheNewFrontiersman.net. The website is in reference to the far right-wing magazine featured in the Watchmen comic that Rorschach gets much of his conspiracy theory-obsessed news from. Photos, video and more is expected in the coming weeks.
Also, RopesofSilicon that the Watchmen comic-within-a-comic Tales of the Black Freighter, which will be released on DVD, has been given an R-Rating by the MPAA for “Violent and Grisly Images.”
Watchmen, if all goes well with the trial, will hit theaters on March 6, 2009.
