Back in November of 2014, we saw a preview for a crazy looking action movie titled Hardcore, which was to be shot entirely from the first person perspective and was seeking funding via Indiegogo.
The movie eventually passed its $250,000 goal, and has since been in the making. Now the first official trailer for the movie, which has since been re-titled Hardcore Henry, has been released online. It’s directed by Ilya Naishuller, and stars Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova.
You can read more about the movie and check out the official trailer below.
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…
If you missed it, there’s also a first-person zombie flick coming out titled Pandemic (watch the trailer here).
