In the first trailer for the Netflix movie They Cloned Tyrone, three buddies discover a cloning facility and discover a bombshell of truth.

The movie stars Jamie Foxx as Slick, Teyonah Parris as Yo-Yo, and John Boyega as Fontaine, a trio who discover a government plot that is “not just a hypothesis” after taking an elevator down to a secret lab. The trio must now figure out how to decipher the “big league” government experiment that they have discovered they are now aware of.

In the two-minute teaser, the group is first seen joking around in an elevator with their weapons before exiting into a room with testing and experimentation apparatus occupied by a lone man in a lab coat.

What sort of crap is this? Slick speaks in low tones and points a revolver before giving a shaking “Don’t touch shit,” Yo-Yo said.

But when Fontaine approaches the man and asks who he is, the stranger responds in a hazy, almost menacing manner. He replies, his voice resonating, “We’re everywhere.”

The remainder of the trailer, which is set to The Gap Band’s “You Dropped a Bomb on Me,” reveals the crazy series of incidents that all three of them unexpectedly find themselves involved in — their calls are being recorded, and their whereabouts are being videotaped — that propels them towards the solution behind a funky, all-encompassing plot.

Yo-Yo claims that “someone is doing experiments on us.”

But when the trio pursues the lead in an effort to figure out what is really going on in this mystery escapade, their sleuthing abilities are put to the test as they learn that playing the part of the heroes is a little trickier than it seems.

The group finally sees what they found in the lab at the end of the trailer: a body shrouded in foil, its face hidden by the camera angle. Fontaine says, “I don’t know what that was.” But I wasn’t that person.
