HBO released the first Teaser Trailer and Photos for the new series Watchmen.
HBO also released a synopsis for the series:
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, this drama series from executive producer Damon Lindelof embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. 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.
“We are no one. We are everyone. And we are invisible,” a man wearing a Rorschach mask says while surrounded by similarly masked acolytes. Then, as the sound of a ticking watch grows increasingly louder, we get various glimpses of the series’ dystopian setting.
The clock is ticking faster and faster as the world escalates toward destruction in the first teaser for Watchmen, HBO’s new miniseries based on the hugely popular graphic novel by Alan Moore and artist Dave Gibbons.
The Watchmen series will premiere in the fall of 2019 on HBO.
