Chris Hemsworth is one of the celebrities who were about to leave Hollywood. After his portrayal of Commander George Kirk in 2009's 'Star Trek', he was turned down at further auditions, until 'Thor' came along to save his career.
Currently, Hemsworth is one of the best-known faces in Hollywood, with productions such as 'Men in Black: International' or 'Extraction', the latter produced by Netflix.
The alliance between the Australian actor and the streaming platform continues, since 'Spiderhead' will be released very soon, a black humor psychological thriller that promises to show a never-before-seen facet of Hemsworth: as a villain. The official trailer, released on May 17, 2022, gives us an idea of what the new film by the former Avenger will be.
Based on the short story 'Escape From Spiderhead', written by George Saunders and published in 'The New Yorker', 'Spiderhead' is about a state-of-the-art prison, which is watched over closely by a scientist named Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth).
In that place, there are no cells, no bars and no guards, so prisoners are free to do pretty much whatever they want. To maintain some control over the convicts and in exchange for reducing their years in prison, Abnesti placed a device in each of them that administers doses of drugs, which alter their emotions.
Directed by Joseph Kosinski ('Tron: Legacy', 'Top Gun: Maverick') and with the screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick ('Deadpool', 'Zombieland'). 'Spiderhead' stars Chris Hemsworth as Steve Abnesti, the brilliant scientist gone mad with power.
Also appearing in the cast are Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett, in the roles of convicts Jeff and Lizzy, respectively. They are joined by Nathan Jones as Rogan, Tess Haubrich as Heather. Charles Parnell as Knowles and BeBe Bettencourt as Emma.

Because spiderhead its story is based on a short story of black humor and drama, it is unlikely that this film will have a sequel, but everything will depend on the way in which Netflix approaches its plot and its characters, in addition to the reception it has of part of the fans.
This month we will see a new production by filmmaker Joseph Kosinski, following the theatrical release of Top Gun: Maverick. The Spider's Head, with a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, has actor Chris Hemsworth as the protagonist and producer of this film that crosses thriller with science fiction. Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett and BeBe Betencourt are also part of the cast of this adaptation of the story Escape from Spiderhead, which author George Saunders published in 2010 in The New Yorker.
As revealed by Netflix, The Spider's Head is set "in the near future where two inmates struggle with their past in a facility that experiments with emotion-altering drugs." The film shows what happens when Jeff (Teller) and Rachel (Smollett) build a strong relationship in that prison, which unleashes the wrath of the villain who supervises them with inhuman methods, Steve Abnesti (played by Hemsworth), who will not stop until separate them permanently. Premiere June 17.
Netflix has presented the trailer for Spiderhead, a new film directed by Joseph Kosinski (in charge of the acclaimed Top Gun: Maverick) and starring an unexpected duo: Chris Hemsworth and Miller Teller. Although we know the Australian for his funny role as Thor in the Marvel movies, the truth is that he has a most interesting filmography where we also find a highly applauded bet, Tyler Rake, a Netflix action movie that triumphed at the time on Netflix.
Along with Teller and Hemsworth we also meet Jurnee Smollett, who participated in Birds of Prey. Spiderhead is based on a story by George Saunders that has been transformed by a script written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote Deadpool. Satire, horror and science fiction are the main ingredients of this bet that follows a doctor (played by Hemsworth) who runs a prison very different from the ones we know.
The place is called Spiderheard and it does not have cells or bars, it is a place where they play with their minds and emotions to push them to the limit. Teller and Smollett are the mad scientist's (and sexy) guinea pigs who will try to outwit him to escape the place. The tape lands on the streaming platform on June 17, being an interesting bet to see the beloved Thor in the role of the evil.
