Fans just got a big, long look at the hotly anticipated “Watchmen” TV series.
The new 3-minute trailer for graphic novel adaptation features more details about the plot of the series, including an ongoing battle between a militaristic cult wearing Rorschach masks and masked police officers.
From “Lost” creator Damon Lindelof, “Watchmen” takes its inspiration from the original comic by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, updating the story and themes for the modern era, with old and new characters and a brand new storyline.
One of those old characters is the famous blue superhero Doctor Manhattan, who appears near the end of the trailer.
“Watchmen” was previously faithfully adapted for the big screen by director Zack Snyder.
The series stars Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson and Jean Smart.
“Watchmen” premieres this October on HBO.
