Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer suit up as the world’s newest superheroes in the first trailer for Thunder Force. Watch it below!
The fate of the world rest on the shoulders of Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer in the first trailer for Netflix’s all new original superhero flick, Thunder Force.
Directed by Ben Falcone, Thunder Force finds Spencer and McCarthy staring as Emily and Lydia— two estranged best friends who reunite as adults in their 40s.
Now all grown up, Emily is developing a genetic platform that would allow her lab to give ordinary people super powers. But both Emily and Lydia get more than they bargained for when Lydia accidentally gets injected with the only formula in existence for super strength.
Together with Emily (who has the power of invisibility), the two besties form an unlikely superhero duo, teaming up together to fight crime in a city where supervillains are commonplace.
