The cast of HBO's Watchmen series prepares for war in a new trailer.
The trailer begins with Regina King's mysterious character gearing up to dispense some justice. Next, she appears in a car where a woman is explaining how she is obsessed with justice. King and Don Johnson then begin to discuss how she has captured a man, who is presently being held in her trunk. Johnson then responds, "Put him in the pod."
The remaining parts of the trailer provide a tease of what we can expect when the adaptation of the popular Watchmen comic makes its way to the premium network. The full synopsis for Watchmen can be found below:
