Robbie And Stephen Amell Team Up In Supernatural Fashion In ‘Code 8’ Trailer

Cousins Robbie Amell (The Flash) and Stephen Amell (Arrow) know a thing or two about playing superheroes, so now the pair are producing and starring in Code 8, a feature that may pull from their own experiences of the genre.

In the Code 8 universe 4% of the population is born with supernatural abilities, but instead of being superheroes they are shunned by society and often end up leading a life of crime to make ends meet.

Connor is eventually lured into a crime world headed by Garrett (Stephen Amell), the right hand man of a powerful drug lord named Marcus Sutcliffe (Greg Bryk).

As Garrett helps Connor hone his powers to execute Sutcliffe’s criminal operations. a militarized police unit headed by Agent Park (Fast Five’s Sung Kang) and Agent Davis (Aaron Abrams) tries to take down the crime ring.

The picture is an expansion of Jeff Chan’s 2016 short of the same name (Chan is the director of the feature). Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!

Playing with Fire centers on a crew of smoke jumpers (John Cena, John Leguizamo, Keegan-Michael Key) who rescue several kids (Finley Rose Slater, Christian Convery, Brianna Hildebrand) from a cabin fire, only to become de facto parental figures to the children. Andy Fickman (She’s The Man) directs the feature.

Thanks to her work as Negasonic Teenage Warhead in the Deadpool films and the Netflix series Trinkets, Hildebrand has seen her star steadily rise over the past several years (she’s also great in Tragedy Girls).

“My favorite thing about this movie is that it kind of tells you in a way that you can pick and choose who you want your family to be to some extent,” said Hildebrand. “And you can kind of make your family if you feel like you need that support. I hope that idea, the idea of family, resonates with people.”
