After the success of Top Gun: Maverick, audiences are aware of what they can expect from the director Joseph Kosinski. Actors Tom Cruise, Miles Teller, and other cast members are receiving love from the audience. Joseph Kosinski recently worked for Netflix with a different bunch of renowned actors as well. Let us see what that is all about.
Top Gun: Maverick director with another sci-fi thriller on Netflix
While Top Gun: Maverick has received much love and appreciation from the audiences, the director Joseph Kosinski has brought another interesting sci-fi thriller, Spiderhead. The release date of the movie is June 17th, 2022. The first reviews are out. The official storyline of Spiderhead is it follows two inmates who form a connection while grappling with their pasts in a state-of-the-art penitentiary run by a brilliant visionary who experiments on his subjects with mind-altering drugs.
Chris Hemsworth is the ringmaster in the movie, accompanied by Miles Teller, Jurnee Smollett, and others. In one review, they described the movie as ‘an odd blend of philosophical science-fiction, psychological thriller, and dystopian satire. This is a heady mix that feels designed by director Joseph Kosinski to pursue cult classic status, but whether or not the film will actually succeed in this aim remains to be seen.’
Many critics and reviewers have commented on the cast and the chemistry between them. They appreciated the trio of the actors with Joseph.
Chris Hemsworth, as the lead scientist in charge of the experiments, plays Steve Abnesti. The audience has appreciated his performance.
.@AP Film Review: Chris Hemsworth is a standout at an eccentric visionary in the George Saunders adaptation #Spiderhead, but the movie overall seems a bit confused about what it wants to say, writes @ldbahr in her review. https://t.co/QgGRLOTKT7

Moreover, the director, Joseph Kosinski, has done a smart job with the movie. The chemistry between Teller and Hemsworth is strong. The critic appreciated the overall presentation.
Joseph Kosinski’s #Spiderhead does clever stuff w/ its sharp, lean premise & has good, dark fun exploring blossoming, character-driven twists. Miles Teller & Chris Hemsworth deliver strong work. Sleek production & costume design get top marks. Killer score & Yacht Rock soundtrack pic.twitter.com/3BE1Jzl361

“Bizarre, Nutty & Wild” are the words of a journalist/film critic.
"Spiderhead" was bizarre, nutty & wild all at once.
It felt like a film they chose to do while waiting for another better project to come by.

Not only the plot, director, and the stars but also the yacht rock soundtrack has impressed the viewers as well.
#Spiderhead is Joseph Kosinski's second home run of the year, an atmospheric and unsettlingly claustrophobic thriller that is much funnier/weirder than the marketing suggests, led by a trio of outstanding performances (Chris Hemsworth is unbelievable) and a yacht rock soundtrack. pic.twitter.com/kXLNeYxMnE

The movie cleverly examines the complexities & dangers of love, loss, & regret. Again, Hemsworth has stolen the attention of the viewers, as proven via another tweet.

Yet another decently interesting theme by the Top Gun: Maverick director has awakened the curiosity in the minds of the viewers. We are waiting for the final day to watch Spiderhead and explore more about it.
Are you also excited about watching Thor in a different role as a scientist?
