MTV.com has posted a teaser trailer for Tales of the Black Freighter, the animated DVD and Blu-ray film of the pirate comic-within-a-graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' original Watchmen book. You can watch it after the jump.

The home-video release of Black Freighter is meant to complement the upcoming theatrical release of Snyder's Watchmen movie.

Tales of the Black Freighter, featuring the voice of Gerard Butler, tells the story of an ill-fated mariner who survives a shipwreck and struggles to find his way home.

The discs will also feature a live-action/computer-animated Under the Hood, based on the memoir-within-a-graphic novel by Hollis Mason, the original Nite Owl. Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood hits stores on March 24. Watchmen opens in theaters on March 6.
