What’s That Song in the ‘Project Power’ Trailer?
The upcoming Netflix film, Project Power, just got a huge promotional boost from the high-energy trailer (seen below). Music sets the tone for any compelling preview, and the trailer for this sci-fi film is no different. Here’s the scoop on the song used in the promotion for Project Power, plus what we know so far about the plot, the cast, and the release date.
What is ‘Project Power’ about?
“If there was a pill that could give you five minutes of pure power, would you take it?” The opening line of the Project Power trailer perfectly tees up the two-and-a-half minute tease. The narrative combines action, science fiction, drama, and a whole lot of swag.
The official synopsis reads as follows: “An ex-soldier, a teen, and a cop collide in New Orleans as they hunt for the source behind a dangerous new pill that grants users temporary superpowers.”
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse of the powers that individuals can acquire simply by popping a pill. “It can make you strong. It can make you invisible. You never know what your power is until you try it,” explains the cop.
“On the streets, they’re talking about superpowers. But they’re not talking about how one hit could kill you,” warns the teen. The trailer builds to an action-packed climax, leaving fans to wonder who will come out on top.
What music drives the ‘Project Power’ trailer?
“I got the feeling. I got to strike while the iron is hot. We gon’ win again. I got the feeling. It’s time to rise. It’s time to rise,” the lyrics declare. “Rise Up” is an explosive cut from Mark Victor & Dubkiller. The song pushes the frantic pace and accents the action and stunt sequences featured in the Project Power trailer.
“Rise Up” comes across as a battle anthem for the heroes of the film. Plus, the dope beat makes it a cool addition to any music aficionado’s playlist.
“Rise Up” is not the first club-banger from Mark Victor & Dubkiller. Fans may remember them for previous collaborations, including “Heart Of A Lion,” “Squad Up,” and “Party’s Never Over.”
Who are the stars of the film?
Project Power boasts a rock star cast. Academy Award winner, Jamie Foxx, plays the ex-soldier and father on a mission to rescue his beloved daughter. Movie buffs may remember his action roles in Collateral, Django Unchained, and Robin Hood, among others.
Starring alongside Foxx is Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the cop in the story. Action fans will recall Gordon-Levitt’s stunt work in Inception, as well as high-impact projects, including The Dark Knight Rises and Looper.
Rounding out the team is Dominique Fishback as the fearless teen on the squad. The relative newcomer to Hollywood has already racked up an impressive number of credits, including stints on Random Acts of Flyness and The Deuce, as well as a big-screen part in The Hate U Give.
When can fans stream ‘Project Power’?
Project Power was produced back in 2018, according to The Hollywood Reporter. So, the premiere has been a long time coming. Netflix will finally release the movie for streaming on August 14.
