Ilya Naishuller’s first-person actioneer Hardcore Henry, which is “filled to the brim with holy shit moments,” is opening this Friday.
Even though the trailer is off-the-wall insane, this clip is truly the first taste of what you can expect in Hardcore Henry. In the clip, District 9‘s Sharlto Copley gives chase to the enemy as the title character unloads an automatic weapon, and drops a grenade into a van. This is the exact vibe of the film from start to finish…
Hardcore Henry‘s producers include Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Night Watch).
“Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky); he’s a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley.) He may be on your side, but you aren’t sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You’re likely going to need it…”
Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova star.
