  • Netflix on Wednesday announced the release of a new blockbuster.

What would you risk for 5 minutes of power? That’s the question Netflix’s new film Project Power asks.

The film, directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, stars Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback. 

Project Power plays off on the streets of New Orleans where 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.

The film releases on Netflix on 14 August.
