Mindhunter Trailer: Netflix and David Fincher’s Serial Killer Drama


After helping Netflix launch their first major original series with House of Cards, David Fincher is reteaming with Netflix for a brand new show called Mindhunter, which will also bring him back to a genre that he explored with movies like Seven and Zodiac. Based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, the show revolves around two FBI agents (Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallany) who interview imprisoned serial killers in order to try to solve other active cases. Fincher will direct a handful of episodes along with Tobias Lindholm (A Hijacking), Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy) and Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror). Charlize Theron is also on board as a producer. Mindhunter premieres on Netflix on Oct. 13th; check out the full trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Book was great.. true story too. The Jack Crawford character in the Silence of the Lambs films was based on profiler John Douglas. I hope this is good.

  • JC

    Hope so too , has a good feel to it.

    Looks great! Loved Zodiac. For me one of Fincher’s best movies. A great movie of cinematic restraint at it’s best.

    If this show is anything like Zodiac, I’m in on this!

    I am in. I would also recommend the darkly comic Québécois TV show “Série Noire”. About a couple of show-writers whose 1st season cop drama is a hit but due to terrible critical reception decide to actually recreate real violent crimes to better depict realism.
