Sandman’s first look trailer is glorious and breathtaking. At the TUDUM online-only event on Saturday, Netflix gave us our first look at its serial adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s dark fantasy graphic novel about the story King Dream (Tom Sturridge, of Being Julia). who escapes captivity after a century and sets out to restore order to his kingdom. Gaiman, Sturridge, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste from Killing Eve (who plays Dream Death’s sister) showed up at TUDUM. They also unveiled The Sandman character posters.
