Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Warner Premiere have joined forces to launch an online "Watchmen" series, sold in chapters through iTunes. Fret not! They have just taken the graphic novel and incorporated voiceovers and music to help generate excitement for next year’s anticipated "Watchmen" feature film. Warners Bros. are offering the first 22-minute installment as a free iTunes download through Entertainment Weekly. As of Aug. 2, fans will be able to download the episode directly from the iTunes Store for $1.99.
