Spiderhead Starring Chris Hemsworth Premiere Date from Netflix

Published

Spiderhead, based on George Saunders’ short tale in The New Yorker, is a genre-bending and darkly comic psychological thriller directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Top Gun: Maverick) and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland).

Inmates wear a surgically connected device that distributes quantities of mind-altering pharmaceuticals in return for commuted sentences in a state-of-the-art jail managed by bright visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth).

There are no bars, cells, or orange jumpsuits to be found. In Spiderhead, convicted volunteers are allowed to be who they are. Until they aren’t. They are sometimes a better variant. Do you need to lighten up? There is a medication for that. Are you at a loss for words? There’s also a medication for it.

When two patients, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), build a bond, their route to redemption takes a twistier turn, as Abnesti’s experiments begin to stretch the boundaries of free will entirely.
