Watchmen on HBO

Here is another reason to keep HBO: the television series Watchmen. HBO just released a trailer today to gives us a taste of it.

For people that do not know Watchmen, it is a comic book (or graphic novel) made in the ’80s by Alan Moore. The story is in an alternative universe where superheroes do exist or at least did exist, and are now considered as outlaws.  You can then follow some retired superheroes, or hiding and sometimes confused in a very chaotic world which reject them.

A Zack Snyder movie was released in 2009, which is, in my opinion, something to see. There is not yet a lot of information on the HBO Watchmen TV series, but what is sure is that there is a lot of famous names. Regina King (The Leftovers), Don Johnson (Miami Vice), Jeremy Irons (Reversal of Fortunes), Jean Smart (Fraiser and Samantha Who?), Tim Blake Nelson (Lincoln), Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (First Match).  However, it does not look like a sequel or a reboot. Some superheroes costume are similar to the one from the comics and movie but that seems to be all, at least for the moment.
