Spoiler Alert! If you haven't read Watchmen and wish to remain unspoiled, read no further than paragraph 2.

Watchmen
buzz (good and bad) is building to the point that comic fans can't even sleep at night. But director Zack Snyder isn't content with that, oh no. At an MTV Spoilers screening of the film, Snyder revealed that he has the director's cut all ready to go (as Erik told us earlier) -- and you will see it considerably sooner than you thought.

"The director's cut is three hours and 10 minutes and comes out in July," Snyder said, describing his original cut as "considerably more violent than this ... and sexier." And if Watchmen does well, the director's cut will get a theatrical release in Los Angeles and New York. (If it does really well, might those of us stuck in the middle get to see it?)

If you're wondering what has been cut out of the book (besides a certain squid), Snyder gave a few hints when he revealed the DVD plans. Watchmen hits DVD shelves this fall, and will include what Snyder dubs the "Crazy Ultimate Freaky Edition" that will work in those time-omitted extras like Tales of the Black Freighter, Hollis Mason's death, more Manhattan moments on Mars and dialogue-heavy scenes with the newsstand-bonding Bernies.

There's at least one thing on that list I'm really surprised didn't make the final theatrical cut, but it's comforting to know that just about every tiny story detail is making its way to fans in one format or another. It doesn't matter what else comes out after March 6 -- clearly, this year belongs to Watchmen ... so far.
