We’re closing in on the premiere of the HBO Original Series “Watchmen” which is of course a connected story line to the comic book series and film that bore the same name. The fans at San Diego Comic Con got a nice first look at it but now its time to share the first proper Official Trailer. I’ve embedded that for you down below and of course the premise and the casting before some editorial notions. Let’s take a look.
The Premise: Watchmen is set in “an alternate history where ‘superheroes’ are treated as outlaws” and “embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.”
The Cast and Characters:
Regina King as Angela Abraham
Don Johnson as Chief Judd
Tim Blake Nelson as Looking Glass
Louis Gossett Jr. as Old Man
Adelaide Clemens as Pirate Jenny
Andrew Howard as Red Scare
Jeremy Irons as Adrian Veidt/Ozymandias
Frances Fisher as Jane Crawford
Jacob Ming-Trent as Panda
Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Cal Abraham
PiercingMetal Thoughts: In another post I mentioned that I was a fan of the original film for the most part since they managed to keep it very close to the source material. On top of that I view the original maxi-series as a work of comic book genius so with that being the case I was planning on being a little bit tough on this new series. This trailer makes me all the more curious and since I still have the HBO Subscription I will be programming it into the DVR. I hope its good because once Disney+ comes around I might be cancelling a few of my premiums to be able to add something else to the mix. What did you readers think of this brand new trailer? Chime in down below in the comments and let us know what you think. See you soon.
