Premiering last year at the Toronto International Film Festival under ‘Hardcore,’ the unique first-person POV style gory action flick stirred up such a frenzy and STX Entertainment immediately snatched up distribution rights for a cool $10 million. Impressive, right? STX Entertainment has since changed the name to Hardcore Henry and set a theatrical release date for April 8th.
Starring Sharlto Copley as the titled character, Henry, and produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter). Also stars Haley Bennett, Danila Kozlovsky, Cyrus Arnold, Ilya Naishuller and Will Stewart.
For those with motion sickness I offer this warning before checking out the insane trailer below: This is a high speed roller coaster ride that includes sudden and dramatic acceleration, climbing, tilting, dropping, and backwards motion. Those with heart trouble should not ride.
April is shaping up to be one intense month.
