Our mobile phones are always called ‘smart phones’ and later this month Netflix want to show how smart they are in sci-fi crime thriller iBoy. We always ask who is smarter, the phone or a human? What if the mobile is embedded in the human? Will we become smarter, faster and with all the trimmings of mobile?
Starring Bill Milner as iBoy and Game of Thrones Maisie Williams, ahead of the movie Netflix have sent us the first look images, check them out…
The Netflix original film iBoy follows Tom (Bill Milner), an average teenager whose world is turned on its head when a violent encounter with local thugs leaves fragments of his shattered smartphone embedded in his brain.

With these new powers he sets out to seek revenge on the gang, who also assaulted his best friend Lucy (Maisie Williams).
