At long last, the first teaser trailer for Damon Lindelof’s ‘Watchmen’ adaptation for HBO is here! This new take on the world which Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons had created is ready to give us a new fresh take of what happened years after the iconic graphic novel.
Now, as a teaser, you can’t expect this to give out the full details of what the series is about, but there is plenty to actually try and break down in this minute and twenty-second preview.

Instantly as we jump into things, it would appear that we’ll be getting what looks to be a cult who follows the word of Rorschach who is at odds with the police. Something escalates to bring masked vigilantes back into the mix, and Ozymandias is going to play a part as well. How this all comes together is still a mystery.

The cult I mentioned above does seem to have an affinity for chanting “tick-tock” which at first viewing feels like a direct callback to the Doomsday Clock and nuclear war that was an ongoing theme in the original graphic novel. However, with the setting and scant details that we’ve been made aware of, I’m not sure if this is the kind of end of the world scenario that they have in mind.
