Jamie Foxx’s They Cloned Tyrone is all set to hit your screens on July 21. This sci-fi comedy, which had a limited theatrical release on July 14, is scheduled to air on Netflix. The sinister events that lead to a government cloning conspiracy will send chills down your spine with a mix of satire and dark comedy. Foxx, who both produced and stars in this movie, will appear alongside John Boyega and Kiefer Sutherland.

The 55-year-old American actor joined the cast in September 2020 and filmed from November 2020 to its end in April 2021. The Ray actor who made his first appearance in public 3 months after hospitalization will definitely give his awaiting fans the satisfaction of his Oscar-worthy acting in They Cloned Tyrone. And this teaser was a blessing amidst the ongoing strike. 

The official trailer was released earlier on June 13. Twenty-four early critics on Rotten Tomatoes have given They Cloned Tyrone a score of 96%. The critics said the amazing cast made watching the comedic group investigate a mystery amateurishly, and that made it even more amazing. Others commended how the film carried a deeper meaning and rhetoric on the prejudices that people still hold against black people.
