Watchmen Trailer

A new Watchmen trailer got released by HBO.

We already discussed in a previous article about Watchmen and that new adaptation from HBO. In this new and longer trailer, we can see more familiar faces.

We can indeed see some mentioned about the Minutemen, and not only a party for Dr. Manhattan but also see the blue man himself on Mars and … apparently on earth too. I am almost sure that I recognized the owl-shaped flying vehicle from Nite Owl too. This gives some hope to see those characters in the show.
it also could mean that this new series is set after the original Watchmen story, once Dr. Manhattan after the death of Rorschach

Definitely can’t wait for that one!

 

 

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.
