Get a good look at the Chris Hemsworth-led action flick Spiderhead ahead of its release on the streaming platform next month.
Netflix has launched the trailer for Spiderhead, one of its major summer releases for 2022. Penned by Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and helmed by Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinski, the film is based on a George Saunders short story. It stars Chris Hemsworth, an actor who tends to to a good job balancing action and comedy, which is the direction the trailer moves in.
There’s a lot of talent in that collaborative team and the setup is equally fascinating too: Hemsworth ‘plays a scientist who tests mood and behaviour-shifting drug experiments on inmates at a remote high-security penitentiary. Sometimes those experiments backfire and enhance the wrong emotions.’ We haven’t seen the actor have fun with a more morally-compromised character since 2018’s underrated Bad Times At The El Royale, so we’re looking forward to getting a look at Spiderhead when it releases on June 17th.
Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett, BeBe Bettencourt, Tess Haubrich, Angie Milliken, Stephen Tongun, Mark Paguio, Sam Delich, and Joey Vierira also star. You can catch the trailer below, ahead of the film’s release next month.
