"The time to worry about crossing lines was a lotta lines ago..." Chris Hemsworth reveals a darker side in the trailer for Netflix chiller Spiderhead streaming next month.
The dark sci-fi tale sees Hemsworth, usually a heroic figure in films like Marvel's Thor and Netflix hit Extraction, play a visionary tech bro who puts prisoners through a drugs trial to alter their behavior. To the stirring strains of 1970 psychedelic classic Les Fleurs by Minnie Riperton, the trailer shows subjects descending into drug-induced sex and violence -- but inmates Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett fight back.
Spiderhead is scheduled to be released on Netflix on June 17. Based on the New Yorker short story Escape From Spiderhead by George Saunders, the film is written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote Deadpool and Zombieland.
Spiderhead is directed by Joseph Kosinski, who helmed sci-fi films Tron: Legacy and Oblivion and who finally reveals his Tom Cruise sequelin theaters this month.
