Check out the first 30-second commercial for "Hardcore Henry," the videogame-inspired action thriller that allows viewers to experience a continuing sequence of unfiltered, unimaginable mayhem through the eyes of the film's protagonist: a cybernetic super-soldier, named Henry, who is scurrying through the streets of Moscow, battling a nearly never-ending flow of heavily-armed bad guys just to save his kidnapped wife from an evil Russian tyrant. (Oh no. Not that old story, again!)

Written and directed by Russian musician, music video director, and first-time feature filmmaker Ilya Naishuller, "Hardcore Henry" features an appearance by South African actor Sharlto Copley (Elysium, District 9) as a demented British agent who serves as Henry's lone sidekick.

Produced by "Wanted" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" director Timur Bekmambetov, the film is due to open theatrically 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...
