The official ‘Watchmen’ teaser trailer is here!
Attention fans of superheroes and the best-selling comic book series “Watchmen”: the day has finally arrived! You can now see the official teaser trailer for the upcoming HBO “Watchmen” series, and get a feel for what creator/showrunner Damon Lindelof has in store.
The series is based on the DC graphic novel from Alan Moore which is set in an alternate history where superheroes are treated as outlaws. HBO’s new version carries on the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel, while breaking new ground of its own. Last May, Lindelof posted a letter where he revealed that his version will not be a re-telling of the graphic novel tale, but rather a new story in the same world. Fans will be introduced to new characters set in the present day.
“Some of the characters will be unknown,” Lindelof explained. “New faces. New masks to cover them. We also intend to revisit the past century of Costumed Adventuring through a surprising yet familiar set of eyes… and it is here we will be taking our greatest risks.”
The pilot, which was directed by Nicole Kassell, stars Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson and Tim Blake Nelson, who will all continue their roles in the show. Future episodes will feature familiar characters and new faces alike.
“Watchmen” debuts this fall on HBO.
