A new trailer for the first-person action film Hardcore Henry has been released online ahead of its April release.
The new trailer for one of Toronto Film Festival 2015‘s most popular films Hardcore Henry is here and it’s incredible! Filled with flowing, fast-paced action, shot from a unique first-person perspective, the footage highlights the capabilities of writer/director IIya Naishuller, who, bearing in mind HH is his first feature film, was recently dubbed “the next Tarantino” by BigThink.com.
It’s worth mentioning that Naishuller opted to film HH almost entirely using GoPro Hero 3 cameras, an ambitious idea that has evidently paid off hugely, creating a Mirror’s Edge type of experience for the big screen.
Official Synopsis and Trailer:
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…
