Netflix has definitely dived head deep into the sci-fi territory with their original works within the past year. Today they released the trailer for another Netflix sci-fi original movie titled ‘iBoy’. Although it’s listed as an original, the movie is an adaptation of the novel of the same name written by Kevin Brooks.
Watching the trailer, which you can check out below, the premise seems simple enough. It also very much appears to be more rooted in the Young Adult genre, but should still be relatable to older audiences.
The official synopsis is below:
Tom is an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain. He wakes from a coma to discover that returning to normal teenage life is impossible because he has developed a strange set of superpowers. With these new powers he sets out to seek revenge on the gang, who also assaulted his best friend Lucy.
iBoy is a Netflix original film starring Bill Milner, Maisie Williams, Miranda Richardson and Rory Kinnear.The film will be available on Netflix globally starting January 27th, 2017.
