WATCH: First Look At HBO's Watchmen Series!

Well, someone had to fill in those Game of Thrones shoes. HBO just recently revealed their next project and it's none other than The Watchmen. If you may remember, a film came out back in 2009 with the same name. The movie takes place in an alternate 1985 America, costumed superheroes are part of everyday life. When one of his former comrades is murdered, masked vigilante Rorschach uncovers a plot to kill and discredit all past and present superheroes. As he reconnects with his retired associates.

Sounds interesting right? Well the series will cover similar beats to the movie but will take a different/remix approach. According to series creator, Damon Lindelof it will, "embrace the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.” Sounds pretty cool to me. You can check out the teaser trailer below.
