Guns Akimbo: Trailer and Release Date for Ridiculous Daniel Radcliffe Movie

Daniel Radcliffe has guns for hands in the first trailer for his long-awaited action flick, Guns Akimbo

Daniel Radcliffe in Guns Akimbo

Guns Akimbo has been a meme for so long that it’s been pretty easy to forget that it’s an actual film that exists and that will be happening to (some of) our eyes in just a couple of months time, but having only popped up at Fantastic Fest last year to some bemused reviews, this upcoming potential eyesore is sure to be catnip to those of us who find ourselves ferociously defending the likes of Shoot ‘Em Up and Nerve in polite company.

Deathgasm‘s Jason Lei Howden is behind the bonkers actioner, in which former Pottah Daniel Radcliffe finds himself taking part in a deadly game against Samara Weaving who, if you saw last year’s Ready or Not, seems to be quite good at deadly games.

Here’s the official synopsis, because we likely couldn’t do the plot any more justice with our own summary:

“Nerdy video game developer (Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonising comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles’ hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the “fun.” Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.

“Gleefully echoing elements of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the Purge franchise, and videogames like Mortal Kombat, Guns Akimbo is hilariously dark, viciously violent, and potentially — chillingly — prescient. Director Jason Lei Howden (Deathgasm) foretells of a future that may soon await us: drone-captured live feeds, UFC-like competitions pushed to an extreme, and online streaming platforms used for gladiatorial entertainment all around the world. As Miles navigates the underworld of Skizm, the stakes — and the ratings — have never been higher.”

The following trailer will tell you all you need to know about why a flop sweat-covered Radcliffe in a robe and slippers with guns for hands should be your first real must-see film of the year

Guns Akimbo will hit theaters on Feb. 28, 2020.
