HARDCORE HENRY Gets An April 8 Release
Following its ceremonious receival late last year at the Toronto International Film Festival and subsequent climatic rights acquisition by STX Entertainment, Ilya Naishuller's newest thrilling actioner, Hardcore, has been re-titled as Hardcore Henry for an April 8 release. Deadline reports the film's release date coincides with STX Entertainment's release strategy to target college Spring breakers and 18-to-25 year olds alike with the company expected to launch a massive screening and promotional campaign between now and then.
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.
