This evening the grey carpet was unveiled for one of the year’s, nay – the decade’s – most anticipated adaptations. Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman follows his other creations American Gods and Good Omens to the big and small screens, with Netflix picking up a show decades in the making.
Gaiman and his outrageously attractive cast are interviewed at this evening’s UK Premiere for the show, based on his comic book series. Tom Sturridge leads the cast as Dream/Morpheus alongside Gwendoline Christie as Lucifer, Kirby Howell-Baptiste as Death, Boyd Holbrook as The Corinthian, Charles Dance as Roderick Burgess, Patton Oswalt as Matthew the Raven, Jenna Coleman as Johanna Constantine, and Vivienne Acheampong as Lucienne. Patton Oswald and Mark Hamill lend their voices.
The series drops on Netflix on August 5th. Sarah Cook and Colin Hart ask questions, seek answers. Here are their interviews.
