Hardcore Henry is known in some territories as, simply, Hardcore and is an actioner which looks more like a videogame, such as the brilliant Just Cause 3 as well as a number of other games.
And now a second trailer has been released with even more action!
It’s told from a first person perspective where 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. 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….
Hardcore Henry also stars Sharlto Copley, Tim Roth and Cyrus Arnold and is written by Ilya Naishuller and Will Stewart, the former of whom directs, it’s released in the UK on April 8th and I’m really looking forward to this.
