Netflix presents a new kind of superhero movie in the first action-packed trailer for Project Power. Directed by Paranormal Activity 3 vets Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost, the film centers on an illicit drug that grants the user five minutes of a randomized superpower. Sounds like a dream come true, except for the fact that the miracle pill can have unforeseen deadly effects.
Jamie Foxx stars as Art, a former soldier looking to track down his kidnapped daughter, who just so happens to be the source of the drug. He teams up with local cop Frank (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) and teenage dealer Robin (Dominique Fishback) to find out who's synthesizing the dangerous narcotic. To get the product off the streets of New Orleans, however, they'll have to risk taking it themselves.
Watch the Bad Boys-meets-X-Men trailer now:
Rodrigo Santoro (Westworld), Machine Gun Kelly (Bird Box), Allen Maldonado (The Last O.G.), Courtney B. Vance (Lovecraft Country), and Amy Landecker (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) co-star.
Mattson Tomlin, who co-wrote The Batman with Matt Reeves, penned the movie's screenplay. The project (pun intended) was first announced back in 2018. Eric Newman, Bryan Unkeless, Ray Angelic, Orlee-Rose Strauss, and Scott Morgan serve as producers.
