Move over, Matrix. There’s a new pill in town.
In Project Power, a pill can give you five minutes of incredible power – but what power depends on the person. The superpowers unlocked by the pill are unique to the individual and completely unpredictable.
The pill leads to a dangerous increase in crime in New Orleans. A local cop (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams up with a teenage dealer (Dominque Fishback) and a former soldier with a secret vendetta (Jamie Foxx) to stop the pill’s creators. But what will happen when they take it themselves?
Check out the trailer for Project Power below.
If a superpower pill seems too good to be true…it is. As Fishback’s character points out, most people don’t realize a single dose might kill you.
What do you think? Would you be willing to risk your life for five minutes of superpowers? You can find out soon how well it works out for these characters. Project Power hits Netflix August 14.
