HBO has released two new and decidedly strange teasers for their upcoming “Watchmen” TV series, these ones once again showing the image of police officers with yellow face masks covering their entire face with no visible holes.
Created by Damon Lindelof from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbon’s limited comic book series of the same name, the story is set in an alternate history where superheroes are treated as outlaws. The show embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own – serving as an original story within the same universe.
Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Louis Gossett Jr., Tim Blake Nelson, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tom Mison, Jean Smart and James Wolk star. The show is slated to premiere late next year.
