Josh Hutcherson Plays a Janitor/Gamer Who Travels Through Time To Save Humanity in Funny Trailer For FUTURE MAN
Hulu has released a fantastic trailer for their upcoming sci-fi comedy series Future Man in which Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games) plays a character named Josh Futturman. He is a janitor by day and a gamer by night that is recruited by a couple of mysterious visitors to travel through time and embark on a mission to prevent the extinction of humanity.
This movie looks like a ton of fun and I like how it pokes fun of itself by saying that it's the exact same plot as the movie The Last Starfighter. There are also nods to a lot of other classic films like Terminator, Back to the Future, Top Gun, and more. Here's the synopsis:
Future Man follows a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.
The series comes from Executive Producers Seth Rogen (Sausage Party, Knocked Up, This is the End) and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Sausage Party, Superbad, Knocked Up). It also stars Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings), Derek Wilson (Preacher), Ed Begley Jr. (St. Elsewhere) and Glenne Headly (Don Jon).
Future Man premieres November 14th and I'll definitely be watching it!
