Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming film Thunder Force, starring Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer.
According to the official synopsis, the movie, written and directed by Ben Falcone, is about two estranged childhood best friends who reunite as an unlikely crime-fighting superhero duo when one invents a formula that gives ordinary people superpowers. They embark on a quest to bring down a villain played by Bobby Cannavale.
The trailer features the two friends – McCarthy has super strength and Spencer has invisibility – as they team up to bring down Bobby Cannavale’s character, whose power is having glowing red eyes and who says things like, “this city deserves what’s coming to it.” Jason Bateman is also featured in the trailer with crab-claws for hands.
Thunder Force streams on Netflix April 9.
