Kill Evil Mercs With Sharlto Copley In The New Indiegogo Promo For HARDCORE!
It’s been a year since producer Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) officially announced production for what he and the crew are billing as “the world’s first ever POV sci-fi action movie”, titled Hardcore. It came at the height of popularity over director Ilya Naishuller‘s explosive viral music video sensation, “Bad Motherfucker”, which featured its own theme filled with first-person POV-style parkour and car chase sequences, fist fights and whimsical elements of science fiction to boot, ultimately garnering millions upon millions of views on YouTube and multiple sites.
HARDCORE is a modern, action Sci-Fi story about HENRY, a newly resurrected cyborg who must save his wife/creator ESTELLE (Haley Bennet) from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant with telekinetic powers, AKAN (Danila Kozlovsky), and his army of mercenaries. Fighting alongside Henry is JIMMY (Sharlto Copley), who is Henry’s only hope to make it through the day. Hardcore takes place over the course of one day, in Moscow, Russia and it’s all shot in the same style as BAD MOTHERFUCKER to be released in cinemas worldwide.
The footage here is already garnering praise from viewers with a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo already underway to help finish what needs finishing. And with a little luck, Naishuller‘s latest gem will bring much more than the usual bang for our buck. So, by all means, watch the footage below and feel free to check out the Indiegogo page by CLICKIKG HERE to see what perks you can snatch for your ample donations.
