The Line Between Good and Evil Is Blurred in the Heart-Racing Trailer For HBO's Watchmen

HBO has released another look at its upcoming series Watchmen, and we must warn you: it's pretty chilling. The new trailer, which dropped on Sept. 13, features scenes of vigilantes – including Regina King's character, Angela Abar - living double lives as normal people by day and secret combatants by night. All the while, law enforcement is on the hunt for a cult of people with inkblot masks (akin to Rorschach's veil) who appear to be cooking up some serious trouble.

The series - inspired by Alan Moore's 1986 postmodern comic book of the same name - is being helmed by Lost showrunner Damon Lindelof and stars King, Irons, Hong Chau, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Tim Blake Nelson, and Tom Mison, among other talented actors. Unlike the 2009 film, HBO's show will take place after the events of the comic and is set in a world where superheroes are treated as outlaws rather than comrades.

Regina King Takes On Vast Vigilante Conspiracy in New ‘Watchmen’ Trailer

Regina King Takes On Vast Vigilante Conspiracy in New ‘Watchmen’ Trailer
Regina King plays an cop-turned-masked hero trying to take down a ruthless militia in the new trailer for HBO’s upcoming adaptation of the famed graphic novel, Watchmen, set to premiere October 20th.

The new trailer opens with King’s character, Angela Abar, receiving a not-so-subtle critique from Laurie Blake (Jean Smart), an FBI agent, who may be an older version of original Watchmen hero Silk Spectre, real name Laurie Juspeczyk. Blake tells Abar that people who wear masks are driven by trauma and they use the mask to help hide their pain.

Watchmen: New Trailer Hints at 'Vast and Insidious Conspiracy,' Shows Regina King in Masked-Badass Mode

War is brewing in the latest trailer for HBO’s Watchmen, so we’re going to get this out of the way early: We’re on whatever side Regina King’s Angela plays for.

If the reasoning put forth at the beginning of the clip is to be believed, Angela is driven by trauma, obsessed with justice and has experienced grievous injustice in her lifetime. But that doesn’t stop her from donning a mask and kicking down doors in the pursuit of good — even if that means, as she informs Don Johnson’s police chief Judd Crawford, getting a little rough.

‘Watchmen’ Trailer: HBO Gives the Clearest Look Yet at What’s at Stake in New Adaptation
Ever since the news broke in fall of 2017 that Damon Lindelof was working on a “Watchmen” pilot for HBO, fans and casual observers have wondered what form this new adaptation might take. After a couple looks at the new series over the summer, HBO released one more sneak peek at what’s in store.

Plenty of the show’s new spins on old iconography was introduced in those teases, but this latest window into the show has a pretty firm grasp on what sets this “Watchmen” table. After years of relative quiet from the Kalvary (a domestic terror group adopting the familiar Rorschach mask as their uniform), an act of violence leads the police in Tulsa, Oklahoma to presume that the dormant group might be planning something larger.

In order to head off this threat, the local sheriff’s office teams up with a handful of masked individuals to prevent something catastrophic.

‘Watchmen’ Trailer: HBO & Damon Lindelof Attempt To Bring The Acclaimed Comic To Life In The Form Of A Sequel Series

To say “Watchmen” is a comic book property that might actually be unfilmable is a bit of an understatement. For decades, since its release in the ‘80s, people tried to turn Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons superhero epic into a film or TV series. In 2009, Zack Snyder succeeded in his quest to bring the concept to the big screen, though for many, it just proved that “Watchmen” is still impossible to properly translate into a different medium.
