Synopsis

Under the Hood
Discover how Hollis Mason became the masked avenger known as Nite Owl while learning how the original Minutemen were formed in this live action, documentary-style special starring Carla Gugino, Matt Frewer, Stephen McHattie, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. A faux, tell-all autobiography written by Hans Rodionoff and directed by Eric Matthies, Under the Hood was produced by Wesley Coller in tandem with Zack Snyder's 2009 film Watchmen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Tales of The Black Freighter
Named after the comic book that appeared in the original Watchmen graphic novel as a story-within-a-story, this animated companion piece to director Zack Snyder's feature film version of Watchmen finds an inner-city youth reading a story entitled "Marooned" from the eponymous comic book. In "Marooned," a young mariner cast adrift at sea attempts to return to his hometown in order to warn the locals of the approaching Black Freighter. In order to accomplish this formidable task, the desperate seaman must shed his inhibitions, using the bodies of his dead shipmates as a raft, and killing anyone unfortunate enough to get in his way. Arriving back in town under the assumption that the crew of the Black Freighter has already taken over, the mariner mistakenly attacks his own wife in the darkness of the couple's home. Realizing his tragic mistake, he ventures back to the shore to see the Black Freighter approaching, and swims out toward the ship to confront the crew. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
