Watch the new trailer for Hulu’s Future Man starring Josh Hutcherson
A brand new trailer and poster have been released for the upcoming Hulu series Future Man, from executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The show stars Josh Hutcherson as a not-so-successful janitor who really loves video games. He’s so good, in fact, that he’s recruited by warriors from the future to try and stop the disaster that’s coming. You can see the poster in our gallery and you can watch the new trailer in the player below.
At San Diego Comic-Con, Hutcherson spoke to us about the tone of the show. He said, “One moment you’ll see a joke and that becomes an entire plot point. It’s just a kind of ridiculous ride that it goes on. [The Future Man series] walks a line between tones, where you have real life or death situations where people are very serious about saving the world. The fate of humanity is on the like, while you’re also doing something absurd, maybe involving dead possums. Maybe not.”
Future Man stars Josh Hutcherson (The Hunger Games, The Kids Are Alright) as a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who is tasked with preventing the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.
From Executive Producers Seth Rogen (Sausage Party, Knocked Up, This is the End) and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Sausage Party, Superbad, Knocked Up), Future Man follows a janitor by day/world-ranked gamer by night who travels through time to prevent the extinction of humanity after mysterious visitors from the future proclaim him the key to defeating the imminent super-race invasion.
