‘Watchmen’ Featurette: The HBO Series Examines How Society Views Heroes
  |  @   |  

There are the superheroes that we enjoy seeing in movie theaters, then there’s the Watchmen. A stark difference in terms of themes and tone, HBO’s upcoming series will take a look at the world of superheroes, particularly those who hide behind a mask and how the general public views them. From Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers), the series will take Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ iconic comic book series and weave in timely social issues that affect us today.

Check out the new Watchmen featurette here below.

HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Trailer: Counting Down To The End Of The World
  |  @   |  

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.
