After many failed attempts at adaptation and several teasers, Netflix’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman is almost here. And we have the trailer to prove it!
Morpheus (Tom Sturridge), also known as Dream of the Endless, has been imprisoned by occultists for over a century. During this time, his absence in the dreaming world has wreaked havoc on the waking one. Now free once more, Dream must fix the chaos that has befallen the world, and restore dreams and nightmares to their rightful place.
In the trailer we see comic book characters like Johanna Constantine (Jenna Coleman), Lucienne (Vivienne Acheampong), and Lucifer (Gwendoline Christie) come to life, along with members of the Endless like Desire (Mason Alexander Park) and Death (Kirby Howell-Baptiste). Then there’s the villainous, sunglass-sporting Corinthian (Boyd Holbrook), who’s going to be a ton of trouble for Dream. With glimpses of magic, monsters, and even Hell, it looks like The Sandman is going to be anything but a snooze.
