Today, Netflix released the trailer for an intriguing-looking sci-fi film called iBoy in which Game of Thrones‘ Maisie Williams stars alongside Bill Milner (X-Men: First Class). According to Deadline Hollwyood, it “follows 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 (Williams).” iBoy arrives on Netflix January 27th.
