What Time Will ‘Spiderhead’ Be on Netflix?

Before you see him as a hammer-wielding Norse god in Thor: Love & Thunder this summer, you can catch Chris Hemsworth as a very different sort of god in spiderheard on Netflix, which is coming to the streaming service this weekend.

Brought to you by the same director who just brought you Top Gun: Maverick—aka director Joseph Kosinski—this sci-fi thriller is an adaptation of George Saunders’s 2010 dystopian short story, “Escape From Spiderhead,” which you can read in new yorker magazine. In the movie, Hemsworth stars as Steve Abnesti, a mad scientist who runs a seemingly benevolent prison. Absenti’s prisoners are not kept behind bars, aren’t forced to eat prison slop, and are allowed to roam the prison grounds as they please. The catch? The prisoners must partake in human drug trials for some decidedly experimental pharmaceuticals.

Our main character prisoner, Jeff (played by Miles Teller), does all kinds of drugs at Absenti’s requests—drugs that make him see a beautiful sunset in a nuclear wasteland, drugs that make him have sex with people he’s not attracted to, and drugs that make him feel pain worse than anything he’s ever felt in his life. It’s hardly an ethical experiment, but Absenti swears it’s all for the greater good.

It’s not exactly the action-packed fun-fest that was Top Gun: Maverick, but it’s still a fascinating watch. Read on to find out when spider-head comes out on Netflix, including the spider-head release time.
