HBO has just unveiled a new trailer for Damon Lindelof‘s vision for a Watchmen series. You can find the first trailer here as well, if you missed it.
The series is based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic of the same name. But unlike a traditional adaptation, the series will take a look at the world created as a result of Adrian Veidt’s (Jeremy Irons) plans. Check out the full trailer below.
Damon Lindelof‘s vision of Watchmen, which will appear on HBO, will not be like the traditional comic book adaptations we are accustomed to seeing. Instead, the series will have a modern day spin on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, which focused on themes of time, patriotism, lies and deceit, and modernization. So while it won’t be a direct adaptation, it looks like some of those themes will carry over into the show, which we still know very little about.
HBO has released a new trailer that should give us a slight idea of what to expect. Check it out below.
HBO’s series based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic Watchmen has found some folks to make some music for it.
It’s been announced that Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, who won an Academy Award for their work scoring David Fincher’s The Social Network and also composed scores for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, have joined the series.
HBO hasn’t ordered Damon Lindelof‘s TV show adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ comic Watchmen to series yet, but they have ordered a pilot episode to aid them in making a decision. And the cast for that pilot episode just added a big name.
It’s being reported that Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons has signed on for the pilot, which would be only the second major TV role for the actor should HBO order it to series. The other being The Borgias.
According to reports Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard will be starring in the first episode, which will ultimately decide whether HBO moves forward with the series or not.
