New Netflix Original has Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and smartphone superpowers - watch the trailer

Netflix has released the first trailer for its upcoming sci-fi movie, iBoy.

The film - which stars Game of Thrones’ Maisie Williams and X-Men: First Class’ Bill Milner - follows boy-next-door teen, Tom, who develops techtastic superpowers when a scuffle with petty thugs leaves him with parts of a shattered smartphone embedded into his brain.

When Tom’s best pal Lucy is attacked, he uses his newly acquired powers against the crew that assaulted her, seemingly able to remotely hack and/or control a host of technological devices at a whim.

Yeah, I know. Sounds (and looks) a bit like a live-action Watch Dogs, right?

The Netflix original film will be globally available on the streaming service from January 27, 2017.
