Chris Hemsworth might be returning as the God of Thunder in Marvel's Thor: Love and Thunder later this year, but he has another movie on the horizon. We're not talking about Extraction 2, either.

We're in fact talking about upcoming Netflix thriller Spiderhead, based on George Saunders' short story for The New Yorker, Escape from Spiderhead.

Netflix released three new images from the Joseph Kosinski-directed drama last week, revealing Chris, Miles Teller, and Jurnee Smollett in action.

The dystopian, psychological whirlwind is expected to premiere on the streaming service on Friday, June 17. And it sounds like you'll need that time to prepare yourself.

First announced in 2020, Spiderhead follows two inmates who become test patients for a medical drug that claims to control their emotions and feelings.

Sounding just as intense as it does disturbing, the movie is set to examine the conflict between free will and personal responsibility, as well as whether humanity is innately good. Y'know, the little things in life.

In slightly lighter Chris Hemsworth-related news, the first official trailer for the upcoming Love and Thunder epic was recently released.

In our first look at Taika Waititi's return to Asgard, we get a glimpse at what has happened since the Multiverse of Madness was firmly cracked open by Doctor Strange.

The movie will give fans some crossover closure from the Avengers: Endgame cliffhanger, too, as Thor 4 reveals what happened when Thor hitched a ride on the Guardians of the Galaxy's ship.

New merchandise from Love and Thunder has also hinted at Natalie Portman's arc as Jane Foster and how she becomes to wield Mjölnir as Mighty Thor.
