The first request if you want to follow HBO's new Watchmen series: you must read the novel-graphic novel series written by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Or at least, you watched the movie Watchmen released in 2008 directed by Jack Snyder.
If you already know about Watchmen's universe, you will be infatuated with this first trailer. HBO just showed it at the ongoing Comic-Con event in California.
Watchmen's trailer, the new series produced by HBO.
The story series of Watchmen series will follow the end of the Watchmen series:
Dr. Manhattan left Earth, telling Adrian Veidt – Ozymandias a sentence that "the smartest person on the planet" must think: "Nothing ever ends – Nothing ends", Referring to Ozymandias's world peace plan will not endure.
And quite rightly so. Rorschach's diary made people aware of the bloody truth behind Ozymandias's "peace plan", inspiring a new group of people wearing the same mask of Rorschach, seemingly determined to use it. Violent law to tell the truth to the world: The peace they are enjoying is just a lie.
In the beginning of the trailer, the first headline clearly states: "Veidt has passed away", I thought the person behind the permanent illusion did not appear again. Until the last few seconds, we saw Veidt alive, and seemed to be burning a plan. Veidt's mouth muttered the old words of Dr. Manhattan told me.
Interwoven into the dynamic plots will be a conflict between the two sides: truth seekers and those who want to hold false peace with extreme methods.
Those who seem to have read the contents of Rorschach's diary.
The police must hide at all times to avoid the "Rorschach" hunt. Even at a majestic funeral, they couldn't remove their masks.
The last seconds of the trailer, we see Dr. Manhattan – the mighty powerful divine character, who was too disgusted with humans and decided to leave to travel among the stars – returned to Earth. Unknown Dr. What purpose Manhattan has.
How the Watchmen story goes, we will have to wait until October to know, at a rate of 1 episode / week.
In addition to the oddly enticing trailer, there is one more thing to make you believe in the success of the Watchmen series: TV series writer, Damon Lindelof is a hard fan of the series, before starting to write the script, he sent fans an extremely long mindset, writing a very similar style to Alan Moore in Watchmen, to talk about his ambition.
Damon Lindelof takes on his heavy responsibility: his story must be worthy to follow Alan Moore's masterpiece. When I saw DC was doing something incredible with the Doomsday Clock series, I was also eager to see Damon Lindelof succeed.
