Watchmen videos

Showrunner Damon Lindelof (Lost, The Leftovers) is bringing an all-new version of Watchmen to life for HBO later this year. It’s not a direct adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ seminal graphic novel, but a sequel of sorts that picks up the story 30 years later.

We’ve seen a couple of extremely brief glimpses of footage from the new show in sizzle reels and the occasional Instagram post, and now there are three new equally brief Watchmen videos which give us some hints about what we can expect from Lindelof’s take on this superhero story.

(Welcome to The Unpopular Opinion, a series where a writer goes to the defense of a much-maligned film or sets their sights on a movie seemingly beloved by all. In this edition: Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation is a best case scenario situation.)

I will be the first to admit that Zack Snyder’s interpretation of Watchmen isn’t perfect. In fact, in some respects it’s a very strangely paced and plotted film, very long with meandering diversions into the psyches of its large and often disconnected cast to the point that it’s a turn-off for casual viewers looking for just another superhero movie. However, it’s one of the few comic book films that attempts a faithful adaptation of a specific and limited comic run, rather than just of the characters or brands that usually inspire the films of the Marvel and DC cinematic universes. Because of this, the film is often maligned as either being too faithful to its source material, not faithful enough, or even decried for its very existence, as comic author Alan Moore has in no uncertain terms.

10 years on (Watchmen opened on March 6, 2009), it’s easy to look back on Watchmen and recognize what the film was attempting and the ways it succeeded rather than failed, and while Moore’s comic is still the gold standard for telling this story, Snyder’s commitment to making a cinematic parallel made for probably the best version of this film we could possibly have hoped for.
