The 'Maniac' Trailer Is Pure Psychedelic Fun

Maniac Trailer for Netflix Released Along With New Images

The Netflix series comes from Cary Joji Fukunaga, director of "True Detective" and "Jane Eyre".

Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming series, including its newly-released trailer, release date, cast and plot. So since this is a series, we're very excited and intrigued. Calling to mind Black Mirror, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Total Recall, Sucker Punch, and Alien (to name just a few sci-fi predecessors), the above clip certainly promises mind-bending insanity - which Stone herself aptly dubs some "multi-reality brain magic s***".

Stone and Hill star as Annie Landsberg and Owen Milgrim, two people who join the late stages of a mysterious pharmaceutical trial for a drug that inventor Dr. James K. Mantleray (Justin Theroux) claims can fix everything wrong with the mind.

Emma Stone and Jonah Hill made a cute teenage couple in 2007's coming-of-age comedy Superbad.

Your exclusive first look at Netflix's new limited series "Maniac" with Emma Stone and Jonah Hill has arrived.
