HBO unveil two high profile trailers at San Diego Comic Con today. First up, Damon Lindelof’s sequel to Watchmen, the famed Alan Moore / Dave Gibbons graphic novel. After watching this, my first thought was we should not count out Emmy and Oscar-winner Regina King in the Drama Actress 2020 Emmy race. She looks fantastic here, as she usually does. The supporting cast looks heavy with talent, including Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, and Jean Smart. Will this series serve as a strong awards follow-up to Game of Thrones? Or is this another Leftovers – acclaimed but all-but ignored by the Television Academy.
We’ll find out when Watchmen drops in October. Here’s the trailer.
And then there’s Westworld Season 3 or as they’re calling it Westworld III. It looks visually stunning, particularly the Nazi World section? I don’t know you’ll have to tell me. I bailed three episodes into Season 2.
