Things are about to get really weird in Netflix’s upcoming sci-fi comedy “They Cloned Tyrone.” The movie, which Netflix announced on Jan. 18, will be heading to the screener this summer and it stars John Boyega, Teyonah Parris, and Jamie Foxx, who end up finding out way more about the world than they bargained for. The official trailer for the movie dropped on June 13, and lives up to its exhilarating logline, which reads, “A series of eerie events thrusts an unlikely trio onto the trail of a nefarious government experiment in this pulpy mystery caper.”
Foxx stars as Slick in the film (having experienced a medical complication in April, it seems he will most likely not participate in promotional activities for the film to focus on his health). Parris, who most recently appeared in “WandaVision” and is set to appear in “The Marvels,” plays Yo-Yo. Meanwhile, Boyega, who starred in September’s “The Woman King,” plays Fontaine.
The new “They Cloned Tyrone” trailer shows the trio uncover a government conspiracy that sees agents listening in on and monitoring the lives of Black people, so they can make them disappear and replace them with clones. The NSFW clip doesn’t get into the government’s motives, but it does preview Slick, Yo-Yo, and Fontaine assembling a makeshift army to take the operation down and protect their community.
Ahead of its streaming debut, the film will premiere on June 14 in Miami, Florida, for the opening night of the 2023 American Black Film Festival, the festival announced on Twitter on April 6.
“They Cloned Tyrone” is directed by Juel Taylor, who also wrote “Creed II.” Watch the trailer ahead and learn more about who else is in the cast.
