TIFF 2015: HARDCORE Puts You Right In The Action With The First Trailer

And just like that, two years have passed since high-flying director Ilya Naishuller made waves over the news on his feature debut, Hardcore, leveling up the sheer brilliance he put on display in the ever-popular Biting Elbows music video, Bad Motherfucker. More to the point, as ambitious as it is to trailblaze for the sake of the world's first POV action movie told 100% entirely from the perspective of the hero, Naishuller and his crew made it happen, and the latest trailer is all the proof you need on how badass Hardcore will be when it unloads its world of unmitigated cyberpunk kickassery on the masses in Toronto next week and in the months following.

You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife. She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg.  
5 minutes later, 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 just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious, British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it. 
Oh, did I tell you that your battery is quickly running out?
Actress Haley Bennett plays the wife/creator with actor Sharlto Copley in what apparently lools like a multitude of roles conceived in Naishuller's script, which makes things just a little more interesting since last year's clip. And judging by the trailer below, I'm not worried in the least. Check it out!
