Earlier today, Netflix dropped the first trailer for a brand-new season of LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS by David Fincher & Tim Miller.
Volume One was released in March of 2019 to a divisive but overall praiseworthy reception. Beginning as a cool and gritty collaborative compendium of animation before suddenly morphing into a viciously violent and nightmarish sci-fi anthology on the existential thought-provoking dread of love, death and robots.
Much like the Twilight Zone, the show spotlights a plethora of animation studios, directors and writers and delivers an extensive collection of animated shorts, each with their own alternate interpretations of the show’s titular themes. Some wholesomely dark and some just dark…so very very dark.
FINCHER & MILLER
For those unfamiliar with the names Fincher & Miller, you’ll likely know them for their notable works. David Fincher has most likely directed at least one of your favourite films of the past 30 years, with notable works such as Se7en, Gone Girl, Fight Club, The Social Network and even this year’s Oscar nominated film, Mank. Heralded as the master of the modern psychological thriller, he knows just how to get under the skin, synthetic or otherwise.
Joining forces with Fincher’s fear inducing storytelling is the visual violence virtuoso, Tim Miller. Miller is a director and visual effects artist, his most notable work being his debut feature gorefest film, Deadpool. Together alongside a treasury of artists and writers, they created the divisive but diverse Love, Death + Robots.
Netflix dropped the trailer for Volume Two earlier today and to quote the little girl at the end of the trailer, it’s just what I wanted. With the traumatic artistry of Volume One still fresh in the minds of fans, you’ll be watching the trailer through sweated palms with gritted teeth. LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS: Volume Two promises callbacks, festive favourites, jawdropping visuals and plenty of love, death and robots.
With a release date issued for May 14th, fans and newcomers will have plenty of time to experience and revisit the past Volume One before the present Volume Two. At the tail end of Netflix’s drop is the tantalising announcement of LOVE DEATH + ROBOTS: Volume 3 landing in 2022!
