The 'Maniac' Trailer Is Pure Psychedelic Fun

07 August 2018

The new trailer for the upcoming Netflix black comedy Maniac has just dropped.

Netflix also released a host of new images that further reveal the fantastic cast, including Julia Garner (The Americans, Ozark) and Billy Magnussen (Game Night), along with Oscar-winner Sally Fields.

The black comedy series revolves around a group of people who enter into a odd pharmaceutical trial for very different reasons.

The first full trailer shows a mind-bending trip that is, in some ways, reminiscent of Michel Gondry's surrealist film The Science of Sleep.

Considering Fukunaga's track record as the director behind the arresting first season of HBO's True Detective - as well as his work on the uncompromising, Idris Elba-starring Netflix movie Beasts of No Nation - we're not surprised that this thing appears to be a visual feast.

They, and other strangers, enter a three-day trial for a supposedly miraculous drug whose makers' claim it can permanently cure their ills without leaving any harmful side-effects.

The ten-part series stars Jonah Hill and Emma Stone as two people involved in some kind of mind experiment run by bad wig Justin Theroux.

"Once you begin to appreciate the structure of the mind, there's no reason to believe that anything about us can't be changed", explains Dr. James K. Mantleray (played by Justin Theroux) as the trailer begins, showing the trial patients undergoing a myriad of tests. Emma Stone plays Annie Landsberg who is fixated on her broken relationships with her mother and her sister. The trailer also shows that something is not going as per plan and that could raise conflict in the series.
