It's no secret that Tom Hardy is a talented actor, and one who can carry off an array of accents. Wether it be the iconic tone of Bane, or the Brooklyn accent that he utilized in The Drop alongside James Gondolfini, Hardy has mastered his vocal chords.
After disappointingly passing on the Suicide Squad, fans of Tom Hardy can see him next in the Soviet-era Russia thriller, Child 44. Hardy, as always, impresses in this trailer and even carries off a Russian accent. Check the trailer out below!
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the thriller follows police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy) investigating a serial killer who targets young boys. As his investigation deepens, he attracts the wrath of the state, which refuses to acknowledge the crimes at all. Below is a short synopsis:
A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, CHILD 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor. Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.” Summit Entertainment presents in association with Worldview Entertainment a Scott Free production, a Daniel Espinosa film.
Starring alongside Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman and Joel Kinnaman, Child 44 is based off the novel Tom Rob Smith. Ridley Scott serves as a producer, with the film opening April 17.
