Together, Matt Garetty (Alex Russell), Steve Montgomery (Michael B. Jordan) and Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) try to figure out what they can do - and what they can and can't do with the powers they're given.

    Get the Gum

    Video: YouTube

    Matt Garetty: "Are we rolling? I'm going to get the gum, pull it right out of his mouth."
    Steve Montgomery (laughing): "Why are we running?"

    Once the guys realize they have special powers, pranks and hilarity ensue. They start out videotaping their antics for fun. Pulling gum out of someone's mouth and making a teddy bear in a toy store levitate (and scaring the heck out of a little girl) seems harmless - but things take a dark turn, eventually.
