‘Maniac’ Trailer Reveals Emma Stone and Jonah Hill’s Mind-Bending Netflix Series

Maniac Trailer for Netflix Released Along With New Images

Things go sideways, as they are wont to do, and Annie and Owen have to flee into the darkest, weirdest corners of their minds to escape the forces trying to tear them apart.

But based on the new trailer for Netflix series Maniac, the next collaboration of Emma Stone, 29, and Jonah Hill, 34, will be a much more serious affair. The 2004 film (ugh, were we ever so young) follows Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet as a couple who break up, then get a medical procedure to remove all memories of their time together. And yet! unlike Legion, it won't have to sustain that narrative past this first season.

The cast also includes Sally Field (Brothers & Sisters), Justin Theroux (The Leftovers) and Jemima Kirke (Girls), as well as Julia Garner (Ozark) and Sonova Mizuno (Ex Machina). But mostly I'm excited because of Fukunaga's involvement. Anne Landsberg, played by Emma Stone, is disaffected and constantly dwells on broken family relationships while Owen Milgrim, played by Jonah Hill, hails from a wealthy family and struggles with being diagnosed with schizophrenia.

Maniac starts streaming September 21.

Bangladeshi photographer Shahidul Alam arrested over ‘provocative comments’

Netflix's latest star-studded offering will have you wigging out.

Annie's disaffected and aimless, fixated on broken relationships with her mother and her sister; Owen, the fifth son of wealthy NY industrialists, has struggled his whole life with a disputed diagnosis of schizophrenia.

According to Theroux's Mantleray, the goal of the experiment is to destroy pain and "solve" the mind, taking people with mental illness through an imaginative gauntlet and depositing them on the other side somehow cured.
