Okay, when in the hell is HBO going to drop a trailer for Watchmen already? I’ll admit, when it was first announced they’d be doing a series, I was more than a little doubtful. While it may be controversial among some fans, I think Snyder’s adaptation was a pretty damn solid one that really retained most of what made the original Alan Moore graphic novel special.
However, based on everything we know about the show, this won’t be a simple retread of the story we already know and love. Instead, it will take place in an alternate present timeline that spins off from the events in the graphic novel. If for some reason you still weren’t sold on that being the setting, you can take a look at the new teaser, which says explicitly in the caption.
Oh yeah, and can we appreciate the weird dystopian-looking American flag we got going on there? that’s cool stuff.
Then there’s the other one, which teases humanity reaching out to Mars.
And finally, another flag — only this time of the pirate variety.
Come on, HBO. You’ve already sold me on the concept. Now sell me on the execution with a new trailer. Please? Pretty please?
