The Watchmen Preview from Sunday’s Emmy Awards

-

HBO aired a new Watchmen preview during Sunday’s 71st Emmy Awards and you can now watch the promo only using the player below. In addition to the new Watchmen preview, you can still watch the official trailer here.

The series, premiering on Sunday, October 20, is set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws. Watchmen, from executive producer Damon Lindelof (Emmy winner for Lost; HBO’s The Leftovers), embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name, while attempting to break new ground of its own.

Watchmen reunites Lindelof with Regina King (HBO’s The Leftovers; Oscar winner for If Beale Street Could Talk; Emmy winner for Seven Seconds and American Crime). King leads the cast as Angela Abar, who wears two masks; one as a lead detective in The Tulsa Police Force and another as wife and mother of three.

The cast also includes Jeremy Irons (Oscar winner for Reversal of Fortune; Emmy winner for Big Cat Week and Elizabeth I) as the aging and imperious Lord of a British Manor; Don Johnson (Golden Globe winner for Miami Vice) as Judd Crawford, Tulsa Chief of Police; Jean Smart (Emmy winner for Samantha Who? and Frasier) as FBI Agent Laurie Blake; Tim Blake Nelson as Detective Looking Glass; Louis Gossett Jr. (Oscar winner for An Officer and a Gentleman; Emmy winner for Roots) as Will Reeves; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Cal Abar; Tom Mison as Mr. Phillips; Frances Fisher as Jane Crawford and Sara Vickers as Ms. Crookshanks.

The additional cast members include Hong Chau as Lady Trieu, the mysterious trillionaire, Andrew Howard, Jacob Ming-Trent, Dylan Schombing and James Wolk.

The series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television. The executive producer and writer is Damon Lindelof, and executive producer and director is Nicole Kassell. Also executive producing are Tom Spezialy, Stephen Williams (also directing), and Joseph Iberti. Nicole Kassell directed the pilot from a script written by Lindelof. Watchmen is based on the iconic graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.
