Netflix has released a brand new clip of Joseph Kosinki’s Spiderhead.

Unveiled during the streaming service’s Geeked Week, the three-and-a-half-minute preview is a scene with Chris Hemsworth‘s Steve Abnesti, Miles Teller‘s Jeff and Tess Haubrich’s Heather, and shows Steve experimenting with a drug that “creates” a romantic connection between the other two. The experiment proves to be successful, giving Steve another breakthrough.

Spiderhead is based on George Saunders’ dystopian short story “Escape from Spiderhead” and stars Hemsworth, Teller, Haubrich, Mark Paguio and Jurnee Smollett:

‘In a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by brilliant visionary Steve Abnesti (Chris Hemsworth), inmates wear a surgically attached device that administers dosages of mind-altering drugs in exchange for commuted sentences. There are no bars, no cells, or orange jumpsuits. In Spiderhead, incarcerated volunteers are free to be themselves. Until they’re not. At times, they’re a better version. Need to lighten up? There’s a drug for that. At a loss for words? There’s a drug for that, too. But when two subjects, Jeff (Miles Teller) and Lizzy (Jurnee Smollett), form a connection, their path to redemption take a twistier turn, as Abnesti’s experiments start to push the limits of free will altogether. Based on The New Yorker short story by George Saunders, SPIDERHEAD is a genre-bending and darkly funny psychological thriller directed by Joseph Kosinski (TRON: Legacy, Top Gun: Maverick) and written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick (Deadpool, Zombieland).”

Watch the clip above. Spiderhead premieres June 17 on Netflix.
