I’m stoked to be sharing the trailer for Netflix’s forthcoming adaptation of Guillermo del Toro and Daniel Kraus’ insanely entertaining novel, Trollhunters. If Netflix’ new series is half as impressive as the novel, we’ll be in for a serious treat. From the look of the new trailer, there’s big promise to be unearthed!
Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Kelsey Grammer (X-Men: The Last Stand), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), and Charlie Saxton (The Happening) lend their voices to the project.
All episodes go live on December 23, 2016.
Synopsis: “You are food. Those muscles you flex to walk, lift, and talk? They’re patties of meat topped with chewy tendon. That skin you’ve paid so much attention to in mirrors? It’s delicious to the right tongues, a casserole of succulent tissue. And those bones that give you the strength to make your way in the world? They rattle between teeth as the marrow is sucked down slobbering throats. These facts are unpleasant but useful. There are things out there, you see, that don’t cower in holes to be captured by us and cooked over our fires. These things have their own ways of trapping their kills, their own fires, their own appetites.”
Jim Sturges is your typical teen in suburban San Bernardino-one with an embarrassingly overprotective dad, a best friend named “Tubby” who shares his hatred of all things torturous (like gym class), and a crush on a girl who doesn’t know he exists. But everything changes for Jim when a 45-year old mystery resurfaces, threatening the lives of everyone in his seemingly sleepy town. Soon Jim has to team up with a band of unlikely (and some un-human) heroes to battle the monsters he never knew existed.
