Watch: The new trailer for HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ series sees the Doomsday clock ticking

'Watchmen' is set to premiere in October

HBO has released a full trailer for its forthcoming adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen comic.

The trailer sees cops going vigilante, superhero upheaval, and the Doomsday clock ticking. “We convinced ourselves that they were gone,” we hear in the trailer. “But they were just hibernating.” The new series jumps 10 years after the original story and 2009 movie, making for a modern adaptation starring Jeremy Irons, Regina King Don Johnson, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
