The trailer is a thrilling one, with a small pill taking over the cities as people become addicted to the power that it gives them, ranging from being invisible to taking bullets. With Foxx at the center of attention, on the good side, of course, we see the course of thrilling suspense as him and his team fights the bad side wanting to test their power pill on the citizens of the city.
