"These violent delights have violent ends."
To coincide with the 2019 San Diego Comic Con, HBO has released new trailers for three of their upcoming shows, including Westworld: Season 3, Watchmen, and His Dark Materials.
Westworld: Season 3 (Coming in 2020) - Created by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, this Emmy-winning drama series explores a world in which all human appetites, both noble and depraved, can be indulged. Delving into the human psyche through the eyes of lifelike AI "hosts" in a meticulously crafted park known as Westworld, guests are free to become whoever they’ve always wanted – or whoever they never knew they were.
Watchmen (October 2019) - From Damon Lindelof and set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws, this drama series embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel of the same name while attempting to break new ground of its own. The cast includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk. Watchmen is based on the graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.
His Dark Materials (Fall 2019) - Stars Dafne Keen, James McAvoy, Ruth Wilson and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Adapting Philip Pullman’s award-winning trilogy of the same name, which is considered a modern masterpiece of imaginative fiction, the first season follows Lyra, a seemingly ordinary but brave young woman from another world. Her search for a kidnapped friend uncovers a sinister plot involving stolen children, and becomes a quest to understand a mysterious phenomenon called Dust. As she journeys through the worlds, including our own, Lyra meets Will, a determined and courageous boy. Together, they encounter extraordinary beings and dangerous secrets, with the fate of both the living — and the dead — in their hands.
