Watchmen photos

We’re intensely curious about what Damon Lindelof is cooking up over at HBO with his new Watchmen TV series, but in true mystery box fashion, the creator/showrunner is keeping us largely in the dark about the specifics of what he’s doing. Instead, the Watchmen Instagram account has revealed two new looks at some of the show’s characters, giving us a better view of the masked police officer characters seen in last month’s first look photo. Take a look below. Read More »

Watchmen HBO

You may know Tim Blake Nelson as the hapless Delmar O’Donnell in the Coen Brothers’ Homeric comedy O Brother, Where Art Thou?, but the successful character actor is about to step into a totally different type of world with Damon Lindelof‘s unconventional new Watchmen TV series.

In a recent interview, Nelson (who also appears as the title character in the Coens’ upcoming western anthology The Ballad of Buster Scruggs) says the Watchmen HBO show is “way beyond your run of the mill comic adaptation”, shares what the Coens and Lindelof have in common, and explains how his role in the highly-anticipated new show was expanded for him.

The Watchman TV series has begun production, and to kick things off, we have our first official look from the series. Don’t get too excited, though – while the image shows someone in uniform, it’s probably not a superhero. The image certainly paints a portrait of a dark dystopian landscape, though.

Lost Live concert

Nearly 14 years after the premiere of ABC’s mega-hit drama LOST, showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse reunited at the John Ansin Ford Amphitheatre in Los Angeles this past weekend for We Have to Go Back: The LOST Concert 2018. They were on hand to introduce composer Michael Giacchino, arguably the most valuable player of the entire series. Giacchino conducted many of the show’s most memorable songs over the course of the evening and even debuted a brand new track from the upcoming film Bad Times at the El Royale.

We’ve compiled some of the highlights from the event into a video below. Watch as surprise guest cast members read sections from the show’s script, Lindelof and Cuse talk about their unorthodox practice of writing Giacchino’s name into the episode scripts, and much more. Read More »

Watchmen TV series cast

Update: HBO has officially picked up Damon Lindelof’s new take on Watchmen, which isn’t an adaptation or a sequel as much as a remix of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic comic book series.

Our original story about actor Jeremy Irons joining the show’s cast can be read below.

The Watchmen TV series just added a surprising new cast member: Jeremy Irons. Damon Lindelof‘s HBO series inspired by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ iconic graphic novel is set 30 years after the events of the comic, and has been called more of a “remix” than a straight adaptation. In other words, don’t count on Irons playing a character straight from the comic.

Adapting Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons‘ bold and brilliant Watchmen is a fool’s errand. And Damon Lindelof, who is spearheading a television version of the iconic comic for HBO, knows this.

In a new letter, the divisive writer and producer has revealed that his take on the material will not be a direct adaptation of the comic. Nor will it be a direct sequel, even though it will take place in the same world.

And you know what? Good.
