Netflix has revealed a new teaser trailer and finally confirmed the premiere date of ‘The Sandman’ during its Geeked Week Event. Created by Neil Gaiman, DC's ‘The Sandman’ will release on August 5, on Netflix, worldwide.
When we close our eyes and sleep, another world awaits us: the Dreaming, where The Sandman, Master of Dreams (Tom Sturridge), gives shape to all of our greatest fears and fantasies. But when Dream is unexpectedly captured and imprisoned for a century, his absence triggers a chain of events that will forever alter both the dreaming and waking worlds. To restore order, Dream must travel across realms and timelines to right the wrongs he's caused throughout his vast existence, revisiting old friends and rivals and encountering new entities — both cosmic and human — along the way.
The cast of the series includes Tom Sturridge, Gwendoline Christie, Vivienne Acheampong, Jenna Coleman, David Thewlis, Stephen Fry, Patton Oswalt, Joely Richardson, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Mason Alexander Park, Donna Preston, Niamh Walsh, Kyo Ra, Razane Jammal, Sandra James Young, Boyd Holbrook, Charles Dance, Asim Chaudhry, and Sanjeev Bhaskar.
“The Sandman” is based on the comic book series of the same name created for DC by Neil Gaiman. It follows the people and places affected by Morpheus (Sturridge), the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.
Neil Gaiman has co-written the series with David S. Goyer and Allan Heinberg. All three are also executive producers, with Heinberg serving as showrunner. Warner Bros. Television is the studio. Each episode of The Sandman has a budget of $15 million, making it a $150 million first season for the ten episodes.
