Sharlto Copley and Director Ilya Naishuller Talk Hardcore Henry




In the first-person, all Go-Pro shot film, Hardcore Henry, a man wakes up in a Moscow laboratory to learn that he’s been brought back from the dead as a half-human, half-robotic hybrid. With no memory of his former life, a woman who claims to be his wife tells him that his name is Henry.

Before she can activate his voice, armed thugs storm in and kidnap her. As Henry starts to understand his new abilities, he embarks on a bloody rampage through the city to in pursuit of a psychopath who plans to destroy the world. Along the way, he meets a mysterious mercenary named Jimmy, played by Sharlto Copley.

We had a chance to catch up with Sharlto Copley and Hardcore Henry’s director Ilya Naishuller (who also plays a role in the movie) to ask them about what it was like to shoot an entire movie on the Go-Pro – and, fittingly, our interview is also shot on the tiny camera – as well as the dangers of working on huge stunts in a foreign country, and how they dealt with all that blood.

Check it out below.

Hardcore Henry (formerly Hardcore) is set for release on April 8th via the STX Entertainment Motion Picture Group, and right now we have the second official trailer for you.

Hardcore Henry‘s cast includes Sharlto Copley, Danila Kozlovsky, Haley Bennett, Andrey Dementyev, Dasha Charusha, and Sveta Ustinova. The film was produced by Timur Bekmambetov, Ilya Naishuller, Inga Vainshtein Smith, and Ekaterina Kononenko.

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, and congratulations: You’re now a cyborg. Five 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 the unfamiliar city of Moscow, 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…
