Real-life friends Melissa McCarthy and Octavia Spencer are teaming up to portray an unconventional—but not necessarily ineffective—superhero duo in their new Netflix film, Thunder Force. McCarthy and Spencer as superheroes? Say no more, fam.
Written and directed by McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone, Thunder Force stars McCarthy and Spencer as estranged childhood best friends, Lydia and Emily, who just happen to live in a world terrorized by evil supervillains known as “miscreants.” Emily (Spencer) is smart, ambitious, and determined to find a way to defeat the miscreants. Lydia (McCarthy) is laid-back, lazy, and perfectly happy to live a low-key life in her hometown. But when Lydia accidentally receives an injection for super strength that was intended for Emily, the two have no choice but to put aside their differences, and team up to save the world.
It’s true that Falcone doesn’t have the best critical track record when it comes to movies he writes and directs for his wife to star in—Tammy, The Boss, and Superintelligence to name a few—but it’s hard to resist the allure of McCarthy and Spencer on screen together. Here’s how to watch Thunder Force on Netflix, including the Thunder Force release date and the Thunder Force release time.
WHEN DOES THE MELISSA MCCARTHY AND OCTAVIA SPENCER NETFLIX MOVIE COME OUT? WHAT IS THE THUNDER FORCE RELEASE DATE?
