PHILIP K. DICK’S ELECTRIC DREAMS First Trailer Shows Us the Future is Still Human

This weekend, Blade Runner 2049 will take moviegoers into a dazzling world loosely inspired by Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, one of Philip K. Dick‘s classic sci-fi novels. But next year, Amazon Prime will take fans on an even deeper dive into Dick’s sci-fi stories with Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, a new anthology series developed by Battlestar Galactica‘s Ronald D. Moore and Michael Dinner, with former Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston attached as an executive producer. The first trailer premiered on Friday at New York Comic Con, and it offers a dazzling glimpse of Dick’s many different visions of the future.

Deadline was the first outlet to post the trailer, which depicts scenes from Dick’s stories “Human Is,” featuring Cranston in starring role, as well as early looks at Terrence Howard and Anna Paquin in “Real Life,” Steve Buscemi in “Crazy Diamond,” Richard Madden and Holliday Grainger in “The Hood Maker,” Greg Kinnear in “Father Thing,” Timothy Spall in “The Commuter,” and Janelle Monae in “Autofac.”

The trailer doesn’t offer many story details, especially for fans who haven’t read the original stories. But the footage has a stunning and almost hypnotic dream-like effect, while promising that “the future is still human.” One of Dick’s most common themes was an exploration of what it means to be human, and that will clearly be a big part of this series as well. This show looks like it could be a modern Twilight Zone, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us.

Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams will premiere on Amazon Prime in 2018.
