"We convinced ourselves they were gone, but they were just hibernating."
The teaser trailer for HBO’s series Watchmen dropped overnight and from first view, it looks like it's going to live up to expectations!
Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen, is based on the DC graphic novel series of the same name, written by Alan Moore and drawn by Dave Gibbons.
However, don’t be fooled HBO’s series is not a direct adaptation of the graphic novel.
The trailer opens with a group of men, the Watchmen in Rorschach masks. The man in the middle of the group presents us with the first line of a Psalm “We are no one, we are everyone, and we are invisible.”
Throughout the trailer the masked men chant the phrase “tick tock” over and over again, presenting us with an almost disturbed feeling.
Watchmen is set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws (instead of heroes).
WATCHMEN WILL PREMIERE ON HBO LATER THIS YEAR!
