Watch: The Trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s The Knick
Here we have the longest trailer yet for The Knick, the 10-episode Cinemax series photographed and directed by the nominally-but-not-quite-yet-retired Steven Soderbergh. It’s still not clear what will go down in Soderbergh’s portrait of NYC’s Knickerbocker Hospital at the turn of the century. “More has been learned about the treatment of the human body in the last five years than was learned in the last 500,” Clive Owen promises in a strained voice, but the trailer’s imagery — sex, blood, rioting crowds — promises the kind of bad craziness ideally required to push serial narrative TV.
