In the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book, Tom Sturridge stars as the show’s main character, Dream while Boyd Holbrook plays a literal walking nightmare, The Corinthian.

The series follows the story of the Sandman, aka Dream, who is a cosmic being in control of all dreams.

Dream is captured and held prisoner for more than a century so he must journey across different worlds and timelines to fix the chaos his absence has caused.

The story was originally a DC comic series and will follow the same anthology formatting of its paperback counterpart.

If the trailer is anything to go off, the series will open in the same place as the comics, with the story “Sleep of the Just” from The Sandman #1.

That volume follows an exhausted Dream who allows himself to be captured by early 20th-century magician Roderick Burgess.

The teaser gives a further glimpse of Game of Thrones‘ Charles Dance as Burgess and Tom Sturridge’s Morpheus breaking free of Burgess’ control, brooding across the sleeping world.

The Sandman releases on Netflix August 5.
