Not yet, but hopefully we get an announcement soon.
At a guess, probably September or October.
Definitely after Game of Thrones is done.
Showtime usually debuts their new shows with their hits, so they can get the part of their biggest audience. I think HBO plays a different game, since the first season of Westworld didn't air with Game of Thrones.
But I agree it might air right after GoT.
I believe September/October they'll premiere their Jordan Peele & JJ Abrams horror drama, Lovecraft Country.
The sooner the better.
It's tricky working out HBO's scheduling. I hadn't factored Lovecraft Country but I agree, that sounds more like something that'd air in September or October. Perhaps July for Watchmen?
I thought JJ Abrams's Demimonde would premire this year too, but it doesn't even have a cast yet. But Lovecraft Country will most likely premiere this year. So I guess it's Game of Thrones, then Watchmen, then Lovecraft.
But 2019 it's going to be a fantastic year for HBO anyway: The final seasons of Game of Thrones, Veep and The Deuce. The anticipated return of the highly acclaimed True Detective and Big Little Lies. The premiere of new shows like Watchmen and Lovecraft Country (which sounds big), and Euphoria, which is produced by A24, so I'm 100% in. Not to mention their other gems like Insecure, High Maintenance, Curb Your Enthusiasm or Random Act of Flyness.
Unfortunately there probably won't be any Westworld this year. But they have a hell of a year.
Not counting the finale of GoT, only Watchmen looks interesting. But it's Lindelof and one of lessons of life - don't expect anything good from Lindelof.
I see you never watched Lost or The Leftovers. You should at least watch the latter.
Lindelof is (or at least can be at times) a truly great TV writer. He is not a good film writer.
I'm one of the many, many people who despise the end of Lost. I actually dislike the two last seasons of it. And I refused to watch The Leftovers for years because of that.
But after so much critical acclaim coming from everywhere, I decided to give it a try. And now Lindelof is one of the main reasons I'm excited about this. The HBO and Lindelof partnership gives me a lot of hope.
Did anyone back in the 80s looked at Watchmen and say “Boy! That would be a great franchise to milk out on!”? For Dr. Manhattan’s sake, they even made fun of franchising in the friggin’ story.
The day the bomb dropped
im so excited, i wanna see this **** so bad omg
When will we finally get a Full Trailer and a Release Date
I'm guessing it's late summer. Hence the vagueness.
Favorite image released. Mainly because of my profession.
happy birthday jeremy
Interesting desk ornaments in the background. Possibly Dr. Manhattan related?
Unless that cake is vegan, Ozymandias would never eat such a thing
I'm pretty sure in both the comic and the movie they said that he is a vegetarian and not a vegan. Maybe Ozy is a lacto-ovo vegetarian. Meaning he doesn't eat meat but has no problems consuming eggs or dairy.
Man I can't wait to see the first full trailer for this. As a big fan of the Zack Snyder movie a tv show on HBO sounds almost too good to be true because of how perfect a fit it is. I am very curious to see how it looks visually compared to the movie even though I understand it might not look quite as cinematic.
Well, the term was coined in the early 1940s and by the time Moore had written the graphic novel some forty years later, the term still probably didn't have much notoriety. I just said that given Ozy's need to be a pacifist/humanist/environmentalist so the notion of even partaking in any animal-based foods would be below him (I'm not a vegan btw).
Dammit, I look forward to this.
I had huge issues with the Snyder adaptation, but I still somehow enjoy that flick. The prequel comic books that came out a few years ago felt unnecessary (esp. whit out Moore writing), but curiosity made me read them. And to my surprise I wound up enjoying many of them. Hmm..
I kinda feel the same with this. It should've ended, but curiosity and teaser trailers brings me here.
