Hey, NYC! Wanna See HARDCORE HENRY Early And For Free?

Ilya Naishuller's First Person POV action flick has been gaining buzz since premiering at Toronto last fall where our own Ryland Aldrich was much enthused citing that the film "feels like the beginning of an incredible new genre of experiential cinema. Hold on tight."

I guess it's now time to say "buckle up" as Hardcore Henry begins its nationwide rollout Aprl 8. But if you're in New York then why not catch the flick early and for free?

 

Strap in.  “Hardcore Henry” is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: You experience the entire film through the main character Henry.  When the film begins, 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.

We've partnered up with the fine folks at STX Entertainment to giveaway 50 pairs of tickets to a screening happening on March 30th, 6pm. So click this link to nab your passes, but remember, this is first come, first serve, so once they're gone, they're gone. Good luck.

This looks fucking absurd. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. Might be a little hard to take that much shakycam for the full length of a feature though.

I do believe they have thought of that, sit in the middle or the back and you will be fine.
It looks like great fun and very intriguing not just from a generational point of view but the FPS viewpoint.It must of have been challenging to film and from the trailer alone the stunt crew really earned their pay.
Of course we now have virtual reality headsets interesting times.

I reallllllllllly liked this film on the big screen and didn't have any issue with shakyness, though I'mm not generally someone who has an issue with motion sickness, etc. But the camera always struck me more as fluid than it did shaky. It's pretty marvelous to watch and try to sort out how they did half this stuff, though, and it's got a ridiculous sense of escalation to it. The gags just get bigger and bigger and bigger throughout ...
