Damon Lindelof of LOST fame is taking on WATCHMEN for HBO and the initial trailer for the new DC Comics series has arrived. Alan Moore’s original comic series focused on vigilantes operating through the Cold War in an alternate United States. But in contrast to Zack Snyder’s 2009 film of the identical name, Lindelof’s series is a far darker and significantly less faithful adaptation. The HBO series will concentrate on central WATCHMEN character Rorschach in the globe that Moore made and will use him to show that costumed vigilantes are not to be trusted.

Amongst the actors spotted in the trailer under are Regina King, Jeremy Irons and Don Johnson. WATCHMEN will debut this fall on HBO.
