HBO's Watchmen

HBO has just unveiled a new trailer for Damon Lindelof‘s vision for a Watchmen series. You can find the first trailer here as well, if you missed it.

The series is based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic of the same name. But unlike a traditional adaptation, the series will take a look at the world created as a result of Adrian Veidt’s (Jeremy Irons) plans. Check out the full trailer below.

HBO's Watchmen

Damon Lindelof‘s vision of Watchmen, which will appear on HBO, will not be like the traditional comic book adaptations we are accustomed to seeing. Instead, the series will have a modern day spin on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons comic, which focused on themes of time, patriotism, lies and deceit, and modernization. So while it won’t be a direct adaptation, it looks like some of those themes will carry over into the show, which we still know very little about.

HBO has released a new trailer that should give us a slight idea of what to expect. Check it out below.

Jeremy Irons Joins Watchmen TV Show Cast

HBO hasn’t ordered Damon Lindelof‘s TV show adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ comic Watchmen to series yet, but they have ordered a pilot episode to aid them in making a decision. And the cast for that pilot episode just added a big name.

It’s being reported that Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons has signed on for the pilot, which would be only the second major TV role for the actor should HBO order it to series. The other being The Borgias.

Watchmen

After LOST and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof shared a lengthy letter with Watchmen fans about the potential HBO TV series based on the beloved comic earlier this week, some of the cast for the pilot episode ordered by HBO has been revealed.

According to reports Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard will be starring in the first episode, which will ultimately decide whether HBO moves forward with the series or not.

Damon Lindelof Reveals HBO’s ‘Watchmen’ Series Is An Original Story In Lengthy Letter To Fans

Watchmen

It’s been almost a year now since we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks to take on a Watchmen series at HBO, and eight months since Lindelof and his writing team officially got to work on a pilot episode for the potential series. It’s still only just a pilot episode, with word coming earlier this year that Nicole Kassell had been hired to direct the all-important first episode, which will help HBO decide if they want to move forward with a full season.

But now, after 140 days of working on the hopeful show, Lindelof has shared a lengthy letter aimed directly at fans of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ graphic novel, who are understandably skeptical of the series based on something they love so dearly and don’t want to see tarnished in any way. In this letter, he makes an intriguing revelation: this potential HBO series is not in fact another adaptation of Moore and Gibbons’ original work, but an original story set in the world they created. See what he had to say below.

DC Comics' Before Watchmen

Just a quick update on the potential TV series adaptation of the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen being developed at HBO.

We first heard HBO was considering a Watchmen series back in 2015, when Zack Snyder, who directed a movie adaptation of the comic in 2009, was attached. A couple of years later we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator and showrunner Damon Lindelof was joining the project, now with Snyder no longer involved. Then, this past September, things progressed when HBO ordered a pilot episode of the potential series.

And now we know who will direct that pilot. It’s being reported that Nicole Kassell has been locked in to helm the first episode, which could lead to a full series order from HBO if all goes well.

Movie Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle
Director: Matthew Vaughn
Screenwriter: Gary Dauberman
Cast: Colin Firth, Taron Egerton, Mark Strong, Sophie Cookson, Julianne Moore, Halle Berry, Elton John, Channing Tatum, Pedro Pascal, Jeff Bridges
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated R | 141 Minutes
Release Date: September 22, 2017

When getting a sequel, you’d expect something on a larger scale, something more epic than its predecessor. And a lot of times, a sequel can deliver on just that. But then there are those times where it just falls short or just stays the course. Kingsman: The Golden Circle is pretty much the latter. The film, which prides itself in dressing in sharply tailored suits, adds nothing new to the franchise. It’s same shop, same tailor, same pocket square, same tie, just a different knot. But it tries to add new elements by introducing the Statesman – the American version of the Kingsman but with more Stars and Stripes aesthetics.

But with barely any stakes and an eccentric villain with a lack of originality, Kingsman: The Golden Circle doesn’t do much of anything but put on the same exact suit, but with a different color and a different tie knot. My full review below.

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Interview: Dave Gibbons On The Comic That Inspired The Films

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Trailer

Part of what makes the Kingsman so wonderful is that it is a side step in the spy genre that decided to take a dark and gritty turn. With the Bourne and James Bond franchises pretty much ruling the spy genre with their shaky cams and monochromatic tones, films like Spy and Kingsman give the genre a much-needed laugh. And the man who, in part, inspired the film adaptations of the Kingsman comic book is artist Dave Gibbons, who is best known for his collaborations with Alan Moore on Watchman, as well as their Superman story “For the Man Who Has Everything.”

With the sequel Kingsman: The Golden Circle hitting theaters this weekend, we had a chance to speak to Mr. Gibbons about franchise and why he decided to work with co-creator Mark Millar to bring the idea to life. Check out what he had to say here below.

Watchmen

In 2015 it was reported that HBO was considering a TV series based on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel Watchmen. Then, earlier this year in June, we found out that LOST and The Leftovers co-creator Damon Lindelof was in talks to work on the potential series.

Now comes word that things have taken another step toward the series becoming a reality. HBO has put in an order for a pilot episode of the series, and they’ve also commissioned more scripts. In addition to that, a writer’s room for the series has also begun work on the show.
