New Trailers - Watchmen, It: Chapter Two

It’s another big trailer day, as HBO's upcoming Watchmen series gets its first teaser, and the Loser's Club returns in the first trailer for It: Chapter Two. Watchmen has been described rather specifically by showrunner Damon Lindelof as neither a reboot nor a retelling, but a "remix." There's a lot of evidence of that methodology visible in the short trailer, as an army of Rorschachs and a police force almost entirely clad in strange yellow face masks suggests a different kind of story than the Watchmen graphic novel and it's film adaptation. There do seem to be a couple of references to the more recent portrayals of the Watchmen universe in the pages of DC Comics, specifically The Button and Doomsday Clock.

And then there's It. It takes a lot of guts to return to your lousy hometown, especially when it's actually the home of a supernatural, murderous, possibly immortal demon that wears the extra-scary guise of a clown. But then again, I guess there's a reason that the Loser's Club are heroes. Get a look at their return to Derry, Maine, as adults, and a taste of the fear to come, in this trailer for It: Chapter Two - https://youtu.be/zqUopiAYdRg

In other movie news, you need to hurry up and see Shazam and Pet Sematary, so that I can start talking about how amazing they are! Clearly I'm not the only one who saw them over the weekend, since they both raked in more than $50 million. Not too shabby, tabby!
