Netflix announced today Love, Death & Robots, an animated anthology series presented by Fight Club and Gone Girl director David Fincher and Deadpool director and Blur Studios co-founder Tim Miller.
The series is a collection of short stories that span the science fiction, fantasy, horror, and comedy genres, each produced in a unique animation style, including both drawn and cg approaches. The adult-oriented films range in length from 5-15 minutes, with the total series runtime clocking in at 185 minutes.
“Love, Death & Robots is my dream project,” says Miller, who co-founded vfx/animation studio Blur in 1995. “It combines my love of animation and amazing stories. Midnight movies, comics, books and magazines of fantastic fiction have inspired me for decades, but they were relegated to the fringe culture of geeks and nerds of which I was a part. I’m so fucking excited that the creative landscape has finally changed enough for adult-themed animation to become part of a larger cultural conversation.”
