Fascinating Full Trailer For Emma Stone and Jonah Hill's MANIAC - "Pain Can Be Destroyed"
Netflix has released the full trailer for the new limited series, Maniac, which stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill and it looks incredibly fascinating. The series was created by Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) and this trailer offers us lots of intriguing details on what the series will entail and as you'll see, it goes to some unexpected places.
Maniac is based on a Norwegian series of the same name, and it looks a lot trippier than I initially thought it would be. Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in a world somewhat like our world, in a time quite similar to our time, Maniac tells the stories of Annie Landsberg (Emma Stone) and Owen Milgrim (Jonah Hill), two strangers drawn to the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial, each for their own reasons. Annie’s disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy New York industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia. Neither of their lives have turned out quite right, and the promise of a new, radical kind of pharmaceutical treatment—a sequence of pills its inventor, Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), claims can repair anything about the mind, be it mental illness or heartbreak—draws them and ten other strangers to the facilities of Neberdine Pharmaceutical and Biotech for a three-day drug trial that will, they’re assured, with no complications or side-effects whatsoever, solve all of their problems, permanently. Things do not go as planned.
I can't wait to see more from this series. It looks like it's going to be great! Maniac also stars Sally Field and Justin Theroux, and will hit Netflix on September 21, 2018.
