New trailer for Hardcore Henry shows off its approach to FPS action


Last month we shared the first trailer for Hardcore Henry, an FPS action movie starring Haley Bennett, Danila Kozlovsky, and Sharlto Copley. A new trailer for Hardcore Henry was released today, and while it doesn’t feature Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” it gives a good taste of the action you’ll see in the film.

Give the new Hardcore Henry trailer a watch below.

I’m not prone to motion sickness, thankfully, but I wonder how a whole film from a first-person POV will play out. I also wonder if Henry will spam proximity mines or kill a headcrab with a crowbar.

Here’s a synopsis for the film:

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…

Hardcore Henry will be out in theaters on April 8th. What do you think of the new trailer? Let us know in the comments section.
