Il primo episodio di Watchmen convince appieno gli spettatori dopo una proiezione in anteprima al Comic Con di New York.
Il 20 ottobre su HBO e su Sky Atlantic in Italia uscirà una serie TV dedicata a Watchmen sviluppata Damon Lindelof (Lost) che non adatterà la celebre saga di Alan Moore e Dave Gibbons, bensì realizzerà una storia completamente nuova.
Ieri sera, durante il Comic Con di New York, HBO ha proiettato in esclusiva il primo episodio della serie, che ha ottenuto delle recensioni incredibilmente positive!
Purtroppo non sono stati rivelati particolari dettagli per via dell’embargo, ma tra i commenti possiamo leggere diverse lodi all’attrice protagonista Regina King, interprete di Angela Abraham, definita come “incredibile ed estremamente cazzuta”.
Ci sarà inoltre spazio per delle forti tematiche razziali e politiche, con alcuni ovvi richiami alla saga originale ed alle sue misteriose conseguenze.
Di seguito una lunga raccolta di commenti positivi:
Pilot highlights: Amazing "Unforgettable" needle drop; Regina King does some bad ass spy stuff; a sequence about the Tulsa race riots that torched Black Wall Street (look it up); a Gatling gun tearing up a cow; and Tim Blake Nelson. #Watchmen #NYCC2019

We're not supposed to tweet reviews or spoilers about Watchmen, so all I'll say is: HOLY FORKING SHIRT. Does this mean I have to get HBO?? I need to watch every flippin second of this show. #NYCC2019 N

Just watched the #Watchmen premiere at #NYCC. You have to see this when it comes out at the end of the month. So much in depth world building. So cool. A must watch, especially if you liked the graphic novel or the movie.

HBO's #Watchmen (or at least the first episode) is going hard into its racial politics. Opens with the Tulsa Race Massacre that torched Black Wall Street. The episode lynches a white guy. It's ~choices~ #NYCC19

#Watchmen is the real deal (at least based on the pilot). Novel fans will notice plenty of callbacks but it stands on its own as an intriguing sci-fi drama. Pilot is smart, action-packed, and unexpectedly funny but never in a distracting way. Regina King is *extremely* badass.

Um yeah, so they did it. No spoilers, but #Watchmen works as an echo to the comics while forging its own path. Regina King is incredible. I need to watch it again.

I am still very mixed about doing any kind of continuation of Watchmen but what they showed at #NYCC just blew me away. Enthralling.

Folks. The Watchmen show….got me. I’m all the way in.

Apparently I'm not, so here it is: The first episode of WATCHMEN is great!! Sprawling and ambitious, it shares some DNA with (what I've seen of) THE LEFTOVERS in its focus on rich characters in the aftermath of a mystery event

#Watchmen is UNREAL – a total treat for fans of the original source material.
That’s all I can say for now 🤫, but I’ll be reviewing the first episode when it comes out on October 20th. In the meantime, be very excited.
