Netflix announce release date for Chris Hemsworth’s Spiderhead

Netflix have released the first official still and release date for their forthcoming Chris Hemsworth thriller Spiderhead.

Based on “Escape from Spiderhead” by George Saunders, a short story from The New Yorker, the Joseph Kosinski (Top Gun: Maverick) directed film follows a brilliant visionary (Hemsworth’s Steve Abnesti) who runs a state-of-the-art penitentiary who experiments on his inmates with mind-altering drugs.  When two of his subjects form a connection, their path towards redemption and free will takes a twisted route that pushes Abnesti’s abilities to the limit.

Written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland) and co-starring Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett, Spiderhead is a genre-bending and darkly funny psychological thriller set to begin streaming on Netflix from June 17th, 2022.
