The Sandman - Official Comic-Con Trailer


Recommended Posts

The official Comic-Con trailer has been released for the hotly-anticipated supernatural-fantasy series based on Neil Gaiman's award-winning, beloved DC graphic novel series "The Sandman."  "The Sandman" is premiering on August 5th, only on Netflix.

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. 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 Sandman stars Tom Sturridge, Gwendolyn Christie, Sanjeev Bhaskar, Asim Chaudhry, Charles Dance, Vivienne Acheampong, Boyd Holbrook, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Jenna Coleman, Niamh Walsh, Joely Richardson, David Thewlis, Kyo Ra, Razane Jammal, Sandra James-Young, Stephen Fry, Patton Oswalt

Watched it all and it was okay, it had two absolutely fantastic episodes but other than that it seems just decent, especially when we talking about Netflix quality. It really didn't need 10 episodes, cutting it down to 8 would have made it much better, the second issue is costume design, Morpheus looks like GQ cover model, Neil Gaiman himself looks more like Sandman than his actor does. Death has just very slight hint of goth if any and Lucifer looks outright ridiculous which is sad because actors do play very well but costume/make up design is bad, it reminds me first X-Men movie when they were afraid of Superhero looks, I'm pretty sure they could have made everyone look more alien and fantastic with current technology but they chose easy and lazy road of "casual", visual effects are also meh which is weird considering each episode cost 15 mil each. Overall, it's narratively good, actors play well but it could have been better if they put some more time and thought into polishing it and maybe hiring more visual directors.
