#FIRSTLOOK: NEW ARTWORK + TRAILER FOR “HARDCORE HENRY”
After winning the coveted TIFF 2015 Midnight Madness Award, HARDCORE HENRY (formerly known as Hardcore), soon will get a theatrical release!
Strap in. Hardcore Henry is an original film that was shot completely from the hero’s perspective. 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…
The Trailer for HARDCORE HENRY debuts during a special two-hour live event on Wednesday, February 10th between 9-11 PM (EST). The event will air on summit1g‘s Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/summit1g).
VVS Films release HARDCORE HENRY Friday, April 8, 2016.
