Chris Hemsworth stars as a splendid and erratic tech visionary standing behind the creation of a new kind of prison that drives sentences for a mind-altering drug trial in the impending psychological thriller film Spiderhead.
Miles Teller and Jurnee Smollett have collaborated to bring the audience Spiderhead, a gripping sci-fi thrill ride set not long from now.
The film follows detainees in a state-of-art jail under the guidance of Steve Abnesti (played by Hemsworth) who are put under emotion-controlling drugs. The film is based on the tragic short tale Escape from Spiderhead by George Saunders.

Official Netflix Synopsis For Chris Hemsworth Spiderhead
In a state-of-art prison run by splendid visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), detainees wear a surgically attached gadget that regulates dosages of the mind-altering drugs in return for driven sentences.
There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, detained volunteers are allowed to act naturally. Until they’re not. On occasion, they’re a superior variant.
Need to ease up? There’s a medication for that. Speechless? There’s a drug for that, as well. Yet, when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their way to redemption takes a twistier turn, as Abnesti’s trials begin to push the limits of free will altogether.
Is There a Trailer for Chris Hemsworth Spiderhead?
Indeed, there is a grasping trailer for Spiderhead available to watch.
In the trailer, viewers see different inmates embrace Abnesti’smind-altering experiment including battling each other, engaging in sexual relations, screaming in pain and more.
As mayhem results in the cell, including blood-scattered walls, where the analyses are occurring, Hemsworth’s Abnesti looks in sheer enjoyment.
