HBO has released a trailer for the highly enigmatic series Watchmen, a serial interpretation by Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) of the legendary limited series alternate reality superhero graphic novel by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. In Lindehof’s version, masked vigilantes who are seen as outlaws, are running out of time to use their former superhero strength to either put a stop to this self-fulfilling doomsday prophecy or join in.
There is a vast and insidious conspiracy at play.
The series, which features an all-star cast, debuts in October 2019.
The cast includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk.
