The minds behind “Deadpool” and “Gone Girl” have gotten together to strike you in the heart on this day devoted to romance with the trailer for “Love, Death & Robots.”
The preview for Netflix’s first-ever animated adult anthology series dropped on Valentine’s Day, giving fans a taste of what to expect from Tim Miller and David Fincher’s 18-episode show. And, uh, it’s definitely NSFW.
The one-minute, two-second trailer features (in very fast secession) “sentient dairy products, rogue werewolf soldiers, robots gone wild, sexy cyborgs, alien spiders and blood-thirsty demons from hell,” which will all “converge in an 185-minute genre orgy of stories not suitable for the mainstream.”
Per Netflix: “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. The series draws inspiration from the eclectic and provocative comic book material from the 1970’s that influenced both Miller’s and Fincher’s formative interests in storytelling.”
Watch the trailer above.
“Love, Death & Robots” will launch March 15 on Netflix.
