It’s Only Just Begun
Ozymandias, played by Jeremy Irons, speaks dialogue of what HBO just gave us. And in doing so, reveals the very first footage of Watchmen. Be that as it may, it’s only a few clips. We have no context of what’s happening. Just know it’s continuing the story established in the Graphic Novel.
Also, NO, that’s not Rorschach. We know this is an alternative Universe, however, it’s set in modern times. Nine Inch Nails duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be creating the original music for the series. The more information we get, we’ll be quick to share with you. So I’ll also leave you with what Dave Gibbons, creator of the original series, had to say:
“It does pursue the idea of an alternative reality. And that’s essentially what Watchmen was [in its original comics form], an alternate-reality story. I think what’s happening with the TV version is it presents yet another variation. And while I’ve only read the screenplay — and I can’t speak to the tone or the way the things been shot — I’d say the reality it inhabits is one that feels quite authentic. It’s not here, it’s not now, it’s something slightly sideways.”
