Netflix has released the official trailer for its upcoming sci-fi movie Spiderhead, starring Chris Hemsworth.
Based on the 2010 New Yorker short story “Escape From Spiderhead” by George Saunders, the film features Hemsworth as visionary scientist Steve Abnesti, who runs a remote, state-of-the-art penitentiary, where he experiments on his subjects with drugs that alter their moods and abilities. Among the subjects are two inmates, Jeff and Lizzy, played by Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett, who form a connection while grappling with their past.
Directed by Top Gun: Maverick director Joseph Kosinki, the movie also features Mark Paguio, Tess Haubrich, Angie Milliken, and Stephen Tongun.
The film features a soundtrack with some of Abnesti’s favorite vintage pop hits, including Thomas Dolby’s “She Blinded Me With Science” and Hall & Oates’ “You Make My Dreams.”
The song used in the trailer is Minnie Riperton’s “Les Fleurs”.
Spiderhead will premiere globally June 17 on Netflix.
