Netflix has released the official trailer for its upcoming adaptation of The Sandman, which you can watch below.
Based on the beloved award-winning DC comic series written by Neil Gaiman, The Sandman is a rich, character-driven blend of myth and dark fantasy woven together over the course of ten epic chapters following Dream’s many adventures.
A synopsis for the series reads:
There is another world that waits for all of us when we close our eyes and sleep — a place called the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our deepest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and held prisoner for a century, his absence sets off a series of events that will change both the dreaming and waking worlds forever. To restore order, Dream must journey across different worlds and timelines to mend the mistakes he’s made during his vast existence, revisiting old friends and foes, and meeting new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.
The series stars Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Jenna Coleman, Patton Oswalt, Stephen Fry, and Charles Dance.
The Sandman arrives on Netflix on August 5th.
