Watchmen: Chapter I Trailer

“Even in the face of Armageddon – I shall not compromise on this.” Warner Bros has revealed the first full official trailer for the animated adaptation of the celebrated Watchmen graphic novel. Back in 2009, Zack Snyder adapted the groundbreaking graphic novel into an epic 3 hour long movie (to mixed reviews). Which was extended into the “Ultimate Cut”, including animated segments of “Tales of the Black Freighter” from the original book. There was also a Motion Comic version in 2009. Then came the “Watchmen” series on HBO in 2019, a complete re-interpretation from Damon Lindelof (which was terrific). Now, WB is adapting the entire book (written by Alan Moore, illustrated by Dave Gibbons) once again. It’s a direct from-page-to-screen retelling of this dark & complex story about a group of superheroes with too much power. Featuring the voices of Titus Welliver as Rorschach, Rick D. Wasserman as The Comedian, Katee Sackhoff as Silk Spectre II, Adrienne Barbeau as Silk Spectre I, Troy Baker as Ozymandias, Matthew Rhys as Nite Owl, Michael Cerveris as Dr. Manhattan, Jeffrey Combs as Moloch. This is a no-holds barred, brutally honest adaptation – R-rated violence and everything else. Seriously worth a look if you’re a Watchmen fan.

Here’s the main official trailer (+ poster) for WB’s Watchmen: Chapter I movie, direct from YouTube:
