Watchmen Blu-ray to Include Facebook Feature

The Hollywood Reporter says that the Watchmen Blu-ray Disc will include some interesting new features:

In an industry first, Warner Home Video is set to announce a plan to sync up “friend” networks on Facebook with the interactive community-screening features of Warners’ Blu-ray Disc releases, starting with the release of “Watchmen Director’s Cut.”

The studio partnership with the social network Web site will use the BD-Live interactive feature on high-def discs, allowing “Watchmen” purchasers to view the film simultaneously and share comments with their Facebook friends.

Another new Blu-ray feature — dubbed Warner Bros. Maximum Movie Mode — will allow split-screen viewing of “Watchmen” to focus on elements in director Zack Snyder’s on-camera commentary.

The trade says a Special Edition DVD, Blu-ray Disc and Standard-Disc DVD will be released in late July. You can read more on the three versions here.
