Four Friends Discover a Superhero HQ in ‘Secret Headquarters’ Trailer
“Whoever has this technology can do anything.” Paramount Pictures has finally revealed an official trailer for Secret Headquarters, a superhero action comedy from the filmmakers Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman (known for Catfish, Paranormal Activity 3 & 4, Nerve, Viral). This was originally set to open in theaters, but will instead be streaming directly on Paramount+ in August. Young Charlie Kincaid discovers a secret headquarters under his home that seems to belong to a powerful superhero. He shares it with his friends, and they start to believe that his estranged father might have a secret double life. When villains attack their home, they must team up to defend the headquarters. The film stars Walker, Scobell, Jesse Williams, Keith L. Williams, Momona Tamada, and Michael Peña, with Owen Wilson as Charlie’s father. It’s also produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, which means they spared no expense on the action. This definitely looks like it’s trying to be a new Spy Kids movie, with generic kid comedy and cheesy VFX galore. Have fun.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Joost & Schulman’s Secret Headquarters, from YouTube:
