Joe King (Jordan Ray Fox) has a problem. He can't kill himself. Worse, at a moment of supposed death, he sees his future (not his past) flash before his eyes—a future driven by an adventure with the outrageous Tallulah (Alyson Stoner, Step Up). Jaw-droppingly funny, Mr. Invincible's ratcheting tension has you eagerly anticipating what lies around the next corner. When Joe's broken heart can't be mended, killing himself seems like the only way out. But fate has other plans. Try as he may, over and over and over again, Joe cannot close the deal and die. When cell phone videos of his suicide attempts go viral, a star, Mr. Invincible, is born. But dogged by sinister premonitions of his future with the unwelcome Tallulah, Joe embarks on a wild quest to gain the upper hand. Can Mr. Invincible wrest away control of his future, or must he plunge into the roiling current of Tallulah and fate? As premonitions are fulfilled, a cast of surreal characters fly in and out of view, blurring what Joe thought was an all-too-clear picture. Fate may be unyielding, but nothing is ever absolutely certain. Mr. Invincible turns true love, mobsters, kismet, celebrity, and family (Bill Engvall, Blue Collar Comedy Tour) deliciously inside out. It's a hilarious, super fun ride.
