Ever Dreamt of Knowing How It Feels Like to be an Action Star? 'Hardcore Henry' Tries to Answer That
Get ready to watch and play in “Hardcore Henry” - one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time. What's so special about "Hardcore Henry"? You experience the entire film through the eyes of its main character Henry the whole time. Here's the film's trailer to show you how that feels like:
As the film begins, you remember nothing, just look around. 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.
The movie was shot on location in Moscow and shot almost entirely on GoPro cameras with custom engineered rigs, “Hardcore Henry” completely abandons, even eviscerates, traditional filmmaking and replaces it with a raw and immediate experience, allowing the audience to become one with the protagonist, so viewers go on a very personal and breathtaking journey with Henry.
Brace for an all-new viewing experience when “Hardcore Henry” opens May 4 in cinemas nationwide from Pioneer Films.
