Hardcore Henry: First Trailer for First Person Action Movie

An action film with an identity of its own -- it’s very much worth watching the trailer for Hardcore Henry…

If you’re fed up of conventional action movies, or films that try and follow a pretty similar template, then Hardcore Henry very much has you in mind.

The movie, which arrives on April 8th, is about a man brought back to life by his wife. From that point forward, his life becomes something of a first person shooter, and… well, take a look at the first trailer for the movie…

A bit different, right?

Here’s the synopsis too…

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…
