Getting fragments of a smartphone stuck in your brain can turn you into a superhero. At least, that’s what Netflix says. The streaming giant’s latest original movie, iBoy, will be available January 27, and it will introduce the world to a truly 21st Century superhero.
The official synopsis for the film is a ride:
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.
Vigilantism will play a starring role in the film, with Tom, his face covered with a scarf, looking to take on local gangs and save Lucy.
Be on the lookout for iBoy when it premieres on Netflix January 27.
