Experience an action film through the eyes of a hardcore hero.

Here's the new theatrical trailer for "Hardcore Henry," an ultra-violent, darkly comic action thriller that's told from the P.O.V. of a cybernetic super-soldier, named Henry, who sets out on a one-man mission to save his scientist wife (The Equalizer's Haley Bennet) from an evil Russian warlord (Vampire Academy's Danila Kozlovsky).

"District 9" star Sharlto Copley co-stars as Henry's lone ally, a crazed British agent, known only as Jimmy. He supplies Henry with a stockpile of weapons and periodically helps out when Henry fights a nearly endless stream of heavily-armed mercenaries as he races through the streets of Moscow.

Featuring a cameo by Tim Roth, the film is directed and written by Russian musician turned first-time feature filmmaker Ilya Naishuller, who first received attention on the internet for helming the 2013 video game-inspired music video "Bad Motherf--ker," which was also entirely shot from a first-person perspective. It was because of that viral video that Russian director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) got involved with the project, and is now serving as a producer on the upcoming film.

"Hardcore Henry" was a breakout hit when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. It's now receiving a theatrical release on April 8th.

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...
