'Watchmen' DVD out July 21

Maximum Movie Mode option debuts on Blu-ray edition

Warners will release Zack Snyder's three hour-plus director's cut of "Watchmen" on Blu-ray and DVD July 21, just days before Comic Con International.

The cut will include 25 minutes of additional footage, including scenes with vigilante Rorschach as well as the death sequence of a supporting character (Hollis Mason). The animated tale of "The Tales of the Black Freighter" is not included in the director's cut.

The Blu-ray will feature the inaugural use of "Maximum Movie Mode," an option that allows multi-story presentation.
