HBO's 'Watchmen' teaser trailer is here

Watchmen

In the first teaser trailer for the miniseries "Watchmen", released by HBO on Wednesday, a clock eerily ticks throughout the one-minute video as the town's masked superheroes plan a revolt. Rather, it seems like this series must be set several decades into the future from the events seen in the graphic novel-in other words, in our present day, rather than the 1980s.

It could certainly be the way the trailer is cut together, but it seems like this group the vigilantes are coming up against are the police.

Too ambitious? Perhaps, but this initial teaser trailer is nothing if not stylish - much like Zack Snyder's cult classic from 10 years ago - and we're excited to see how the story unfolds on the small screen. The series will star Oscar and Emmy victor Regina King, Don Johnson, and Jeremy Irons in unspecified roles.

It reads, "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".

And Kompany warned: "It's a big goal, we've not achieved anything but it was an important win against a very, very strong team". The wonderstrike was so ridiculous that Aguero was telling him not to shoot in the lead-up to the shot.

Now, if I were you, I would take what I'd just said with a grain of salt, as no official plot details for the series have yet to be revealed. In our world, of course, the Cold War is long over, but Watchmen takes place in a parallel universe where Richard Nixon was still the president in the '80s, so who knows what's happening there?

Speaking of which: the remainder of the cast is made up of 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.

Watchmen debuts in fall 2019 on HBO.
