You're going to want to check out Future Man, a new Hulu series from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg that takes the lovable Josh Hutcherson out of The Hunger Games and into a (different) battle to save the world. Tiger (Coupe) and Wolf (Preacher's Derek Wilson) travel back in time from the year 2162 to inform Josh Futturman (Hutcherson) that the video game he just beat is actually a recruiting tool used by their resistance forces. Matt Tolmach, James Weaver and Ben Karlin also executive produce. Future Man is produced by Point Grey Pictures, Matt Tolmach Productions and Turkeyfoot Productions, in association with Sony Pictures Television. It's obviously not the kind of thing you'd see on a network's primetime schedule, but it's the flawless canvas for folks like Rogen and Goldberg to tell a wacky, self-contained sci-fi story that looks like a whole lot of fun.
The first official trailer for Future Man coming out of New York Comic Con 2017 definitely gives viewers an in-depth view of the show's premise, but it also highlights the various homages given to the films that inspired the series.
You're not alone if the plot of Hulu's fantastically fun-looking Future Man sounds an very bad lot like that of 1984's The Last Starfighter. In one of her last performances before her death, Glenne Headly plays Josh's mother alongside Ed Begley, Jr.as Josh's father.
