The first trailer for They Cloned Tyrone landed online – and it looks like the riots are absolute.
Revealed at Tudum 2022, a global Netflix fan event, the sci-fi comedy starring Jamie Foxx, John Boyegi and Teyonah Parris looks like it could be a huge hit when it comes out.
Check out the official trailer for fun Netflix ’70s movie below:
So far, little has been revealed about the story of They Cloned Tyrone. Before the trailer, the film only received a brief plot synopsis that read: “Three Friends for Life Are at the Center of a Healing Plot.”
However, with the launch of the trailer, we have a better idea of how its narrative will go. Boyega, Foxx, and Parris star as Fontaine, Slick, and Yo-Yo respectively, and the trio uncover a massive conspiracy following a series of incredible events that lead them to a heinous government experiment.
Netflix describes The Cloned Tyrone as “crushing, mysterious whim,” and the trailer certainly gives off those vibrations. Equally, however, the upcoming movie feels like a return to the blaxploitation era in making movies – independent movies that were shot in the 1970s and celebrated black culture, racial injustice, and more mature content. Such films consisted of a black cast and crew and covered a wide range of genres. The Cloned Tyrone is reminiscent of the celebration of that era, based on the costumes of the heroes and grainy photos.
Juel Taylor (1920s, Boomerang) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Tony Rettenmaier. The Cloned Tyrone does not have an official release date yet, but rumors suggest it may hit Netflix before the end of the year. The trailer says “soon,” so the chances of it falling by the end of 2022 are likely. Even if They Cloned Tyrone isn’t released this year, there will be plenty of new Netflix movies in the coming months for subscribers to enjoy.
