Chris Hemsworth Is Making The World A Better Place In The First Official Trailer For SPIDERHEAD

Netflix has released the official trailer Joe Kosinski's Spiderhead, which stars Chris Hemsworth as a brilliant visionary named Steve Abnesti, who has some interesting ideas on how to run a prison.

Ahead of next week's eagerly awaited release of Joe Kosinski's Top Gun: Maverick, Netflix has shared the official trailer for their own Kosinski film, the upcoming psychological sci-fi thriller Spiderhead, which is based on George Saunders' acclaimed short story for The New Yorker, Escape from Spiderhead

Thor: Love and Thunder star Chris Hemsworth is leading the cast, playing a brilliant prison visionary named Steve Abnesti. As you can see in the trailer, in his prisons, inmates sign on to wear surgically attached devices that administer dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. 

Joining Hemsworth on this journey are Miles Teller (Top Gun: Maverick; Fantastic Four) and Primetime Emmy-nominee Jurnee Smollett (Birds of PreyLovecraft Country). It's the special bond their two characters form that set the trippy events of the film in motion as Abnesti's shady experiments begin to push the limits of free will. 

While this will be Kosinski and Teller's second film of the year, it will be the first of two major summer releases for Hemsworth, preceding his hotly-awaited Marvel adventure Thor: Love and Thunder

Spiderhead starts streaming, exclusively on Netflix, on June 17. 

In a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too. But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their path to redemption take a twistier turn, as Abnesti’s experiments start to push the limits of free will altogether. Based on The New Yorker short story by George Saunders, SPIDERHEAD is a genre-bending and darkly funny psychological thriller directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Top Gun: Maverick) and written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland).
