David Fincher and Tim Miller’s ‘Love, Death & Robots’ Kills Hitler in Animated Short

Netflix has released synopses for all 18 of the animated short films that make up "Love, Death & Robots."

Netflix is building up to the March 15 release of its animated anthology series “Love, Death & Robots” by dropping a teaser trailer each day for one of the season’s 18 different animated short films. The series hails from “Deadpool” director Tim Miller and executive producer David Fincher. Per the official synopsis, “Love, Death & Robots” will feature different animation styles and directors for each short film.

As Netflix continues to drop individualized teasers, the streaming giant has issued synopses for each of the animations. One short that already stands out is “Alternate Histories,” which is set in a world called Multiversity and will feature Adolf Hitler dying in a variety of comically fantastic ways.” The teaser for “Alternate Histories” finds Hitler being trampled by a horse and ends with the bloodied and dismembered dictator spread out across the concrete.
