Riding high off the release of The Old Guard, Netflix has just dropped the trailer for their next super-powered film, Project Power. This time, instead immortal warriors, we’ll be seeing Jamie Foxx, Dominique Fishback and Joseph Gordon-Levitt take on a world where super powers can come from a pill.
The premise is dark and very interesting. If powers, even for just a few moments can be gained by swallowing a pill, it creates the potential for a whole type of crime and corruption.
What would you risk for five minutes of pure power? On the streets of New Orleans, word begins to spread about a mysterious new pill that unlocks superpowers unique to each user. The catch: You don’t know what will happen until you take it. While some develop bulletproof skin, invisibility, and super strength, others exhibit a deadlier reaction. But when the pill escalates crime within the city to dangerous levels, a local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams with a teenage dealer (Dominique Fishback) and a former soldier fueled by a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to fight power with power and risk taking the pill in order to track down and stop the group responsible for creating it.
