Set to stream on Netflix August 14th, 2020, Netflix's Project Power stars Jamie Foxx as a man who is on a mission to find the source of a mysterious drug — one that grants users temporary superpowers for 5 minutes— and the people behind it, who have taken something very near and dear to his heart.
This movie somewhat came out of nowhere and what a time to do so. In a world when staying home is the most obvious option for entertainment, it's no wonder Netflix decided to hit us hard and with what appears to be a sure shot cast.
The film stars Jamie Fox, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and up and comer Dominique Fishback [The hate u Give]. Now there is still little known about Project Power, for instance, IMDB doesn't even display most of the lead actor's character names. Strange? Well we find it rather interesting and cannot wait to get a full glimpse of this film.
Heres what we do know...
Let's meet the rest of the key players, shall we?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a New Orleans police detective who gets ensnared in the search for the source of the titular drug. When he takes it, he acquires a very useful ability for his line of work.
Dominique Fishback (left) , who many are saying is the MVP of the film, is a fearless and gifted young woman named Robin caught up in the serious business of slinging Power and ends up a central player in the drama.
Colson 'Machine Gun Kelly' Baker, once signed to Bad Boy Ent., has come along way since Netflix's Bird Box alongside Sandra Bullock. Now in Project Power, as what appears to be the big baddie of the film, he possesses a fiery gift. Directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman [Paranormal Activity and Nerve], Project Power, is a giddy combination of a crime thriller, action movie, and comic book-style fantasy.
So, what would you do with your 5 minutes of Power?
