Directed by Ilya Naishuller, one of the most action-packed offerings to the adventure genre in 2015 is most definitely adrenaline-pumping Hardcore Henry. The bonkers feature, produced by Timur Bekmambetov (the Russian genius behind Wanted and Night Watch) wowed the hell out of the Toronto International Film Festival and is now up for widespread released on April 8, 2016.
If you're not sure what the movie is about, here's the official synopsis:
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…
We've already had the trailer, which took us on a wild first-person ride like no other, and now it appears that a short TV spot has appeared which gives us another glimpse into what it would be like to embark on Henry's mad journey — check it out:
