A new TV spot for action thriller Hardcore Henry has been released and it offers as much violence, mayhem and action as you would expect. It crams an astonishing amount of first-person mania in to its 30 second run-time and it is glorious.
The film is shot entirely from the perspective of ‘Henry’ so you are placed directly on the front line in the role of an action star, so get yours guns and grenades ready. It really does look like a revolutionary cinematic experience that will certainly get your head spinning. Either that or you’re going to vomit. It’s fast-paced and filled with frantic editing, so it’s going to be one hell of a 90-minute rollercoaster ride.
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…
Check out the trailer below, too, because it will blow your mind. With a cast that includes Haley Bennett, Tim Roth and Sharlto Copley, Hardcore Henry will be released by STX entertainment on 8th April in the USA and UK.
