Maniac Trailer: Is This The Most Exciting Netflix Original Series Of 2018?
The black comedy series revolves around a group of people who enter into a odd pharmaceutical trial for very different reasons.
'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 fix 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.
NASA announces crew for commercial spaceships
Their voyages are scheduled to begin next year, and they would be the first American astronauts to launch from US soil since 2011. United States astronauts now ride on Russian capsules to the space station, with NASA paying as much as $82 million a seat.
Based on the trailer, it looks like the trial does far more than fix the participants' minds - it also makes them question their reality or conjure new ones. Emma Stone's character calls it "multi-reality brain magic shit" and we then see them in alternate realities that are starkly different from the reality they are now living in.
Given the talent and pedigree attached to the series, Maniac is going to be a must-watch when it's released on Netflix in September. There's a shifty pharmaceutical drug trial, Justin Theroux as the wonderfully-named Dr. James K. Mantleray, and... this.
Considering Fukunaga's track record as the director behind the arresting first season of HBO'sTrue 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. Let us know in the comments.
Maniac arrives on Netflix Friday, Sept. 21.
