Featuring a star-studded cast including Oscar winners Regina King, Jeremy Irons and Louis Gosset Jr. and celebrated actors Frances Fisher and Don Johnson,Watchmen is based on one of most the iconic graphic novels of all time and is set in an alternate history where masked vigilantes are treated as outlaws.
