The Trailer for Maniac is an Absolute Trip

Maniac Trailer - Cary Joji Fukunaga - Netflix Series - Jonah Hill - emma Stone - Movies Maketh Man

You may not have heard of the original Norwegian web series, Maniac, but apparently it was good enough to get picked up and produced by the one and only Cary Fukunaga. I was already on board at this point, since everything this guy makes ends up being pretty damn awesome. I still wonder what his version of It would have been like, even though I thought the actual film was pretty awesome. True Detective was also just objectively an awesome film, and let’s just all agree that Beasts of No Nation was short shrifted at the Oscars. Anyway, with Fukunaga attached to the project, it’s safe to say  that this is going to be a good one. Enjoy the trailer below…

So the cool thing about this is that while the premise seems simple: “An institutionalized man dreams of a new life in a fantasy world”, this also provides a lot of opportunity to build new and interesting worlds out in the mind of the character(s). We already get a slight glimpse at some of these worlds in the trailer, which looks absolutely fantastic.

This limited series starts Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, and all 10 episodes will premiere on Netflix on 21 September 2018. What did you think of the trailer for Maniac? Let me know.
