Being the prominent comedy writer he is, actor Bob Odenkirk spent two years getting in shape for his long-awaited action thriller, Nobody, from Hardcore Henry helmer Ilya Naishuller. He tells all including the following in an exclusive over at IGN on Thursday, about some of the challenges he faced in playing his character.
Director Ilya Naishuller (a.k.a. everyone’s favorite director of this 2013 music video) is reportedly on deck to helm action thriller, Nobody. Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) was attached to the film in January.
…Anyway, enough of that. It’s time to get to a trio of meaty, mighty playlists for this week’s installment of THE HIT LIST that I know you will have plenty to fill up with. And on that note, we can always count on actor, martial artist, stuntman and filmmaker Eric Jacobus to lead the way for videos specially attributed to the Tekken game franchise. With another already in tow, Armor King is now staking his claim via Eric’s YouTube channel first up in the playlist below, followed by a slew of stunt and demo reels by Luci Romberg, Jake Teel, Sakaeda Ayami, Justin Hall, Daisy Fryer, Fernando Campos, ToniMarie Chiavola, Angel Flores, Meredith Richardson, Roger Bartlett, Noelle Mulligan, Jonathan King, Cavin Mohrhardt and an awesome new fan reel inspired largely by filmmaker Steve Wang’s Guyver: Dark Hero, with actor and martial artist Anthony Houk’s central costume performance in the title role.
You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife who 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. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. If you can survive the insanity and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Strap in for a wild ride that critics are calling “a revolutionary movie experience” (Jake Spencer, Indiewire). From the director of the viral first-person shooter music video, Biting Elbows’ Bad Mother F***er (Ilya Naishuller), and the producer of Wanted (Timur Bekmanbetov), Hardcore Henry is a groundbreaking action hit that’s unlike anything you’ve seen before!
In a summer where most films will entertain audiences by placating to them and their expectations, it’s refreshing to see an absolutely insane movie created through the sheer inspiration of one filmmaker.
