The Trailer For POV Actioner HARDCORE Totally Is
Ahead of its world premiere tonight in Toronto's Midnight Madness section, a trailer has dropped for Ilya Naishuller's first person actioner Hardcore. The less said about the trailer the better, but first...

You may recall that Naishuller and his team were behind the POV thrill rides Motherfucker and The Stampede, music videos shot on GoPros for his band Biting Elbows. I'm not quite sure what the videos did for the band, but they sure as hell got heads turning in the film industry, and Hardcore is the feature film result.

Hardcore" is told entirely from the point of view of a cyborg named Henry. Resurrected with no recollection of his past, Henry (the audience) andhis ally, Jimmy (Sharlto Copley, "District 9") must fight through the streets of Moscow in pursuit of Henry's kidnapped wife in the world's first action-adventure film to be shot 100% from the first person perspective.
Now to that trailer...

This would be awesome to watch in Oculus Rift 3D

This looks like so much fun. Reminds me of Nevaldine/Taylor's kinetic camera work, but seems like it may have some effective character moments as well.

Is that sharito getting headshot in the cab?

Looks very fun, if not a bit ADD. And I'm wondering if it can be interesting enough to watch FPS fisheye for the length of a feature film.

Btw, I get that this fisheye lenses are the only way to give us wide views like this, but it does in no way give me a realistic FPS view. But that's just a bit of nitpicking on my part! ;).

I don't know if it's just something weird with the trailer, but this seemed a lot more CGI-enhanced than the earlier Hardcore clip. I hope I am mistaken :(
