Netflix just released the first official trailer for Love Death and Robots, the streaming service’s first foray into animated anthology series. Love Death and Robots comes from executive producers Tim Miller (Deadpool, Terminator: Dark Fate) and director David Fincher (Mindhunter, Gone Girl, House of Cards, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and is inspired by the comics of the 1970s that influenced their careers.
When the project was initially announced by Netflix, Miller said, “Love, Death & Robots is my dream project, it combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so f**king excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
In addition to David Fincher and Tim Miller, Jennifer Miller and Josh Donen serve as executive producers on the project.
Love Death and Robots is set to premiere on Netflix on March 15, 2019.
Details on the Animated Anthology Series, Courtesy of Netflix:
Sentient dairy products, rogue werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, garbage monsters, cyborg bounty hunters, alien spiders and blood-thirsty demons from hell – all converge in a 185 minute genre orgy of stories not suitable for the mainstream.
The full roster of stories will cover a variety of adult topics including racism, government, war, free will, and human nature. The anthology collection spans the science fiction, fantasy, horror and comedy genres and each short has a unique animation style: from traditional 2D to photo-real 3D CGI. The creators were assembled for a global calling for best in class animators from all over the world including artists from France, Korea, Hungary, Canada and the US among others.
