'Watchmen': All The Secrets In The Trailer For The New HBO Miniseries

You can definitely tell this is something new - and also tell it's from the guy who made The Leftovers - in the trailer which is set to David Bowie's "Life on Mars". Doctor Manhattan has many abilities, including teleporting himself from great distances. Instead of being another adaptation, the HBO series will serve as a sequel to Moore's original. It's exactly the property that Hollywood has historically failed to adapt for the screen, and indeed the most prominent attempt to do so - Zack Snyder's big-budget adaptation - was an abject failure. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will compose the score for the show.

Damon Lindelof is executive producing and writing the series, which also be executive produced by Nicole Kassell, Tom Spezialy, Stephen Williams, and Joseph Iberti.

What do you think of HBO's version of Doctor Manhattan? The new trailer captures the same sentiment, showing an army of masked police officers gathered before the head of police.

For HBO, this new series (which is based on an awesome graphic novel) is hyped to be the next Game of Thrones for the network in terms of popularity.

Those include Tiger Woods , Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy , Jason Day, Adam Scott and Bryson DeChambeau. Republic Of Ireland's Shane Lowry will be the home favourite in the closing stages of The Open .


Based on the graphic novel of the same name, Watchmen is set in an alternate history where "superheroes" are treated as outlaws. A fall release window is now in place for Watchmen and once we've got an exact premiere date, we'll be sure to let you know. Watchmen is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros.

The comic book that changed most people's minds about what comic books could be, Watchmen is pure philosophical pulp; a treatise on free will, fascism, agency, power, nuclear weapons, war, the national psyche, America, and consequentialism.

The trailer indicates that HBO's Watchmen will be 10 episodes for Season 1 with a release date in October of 2019.
