The new film Hardcore Henry premiering at SXSW before making a national run looks to bring all of the good and bad of a first person shooter videogame to the cinema. The action looks ridiculous and the story looks non-existent. If the whole thing is handled with tongue buried deeply in cheek this could be camp gold. We’ve got a new trailer and poster for ya here. In case you are uninformed here’s the official synopsis for Hardcore Henry:

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…
