‘Nobody’ Director Ilya Naishuller on Shooting Clean Action and Avoiding Shaky Cam [Interview]

Ilya Naishuller doesn’t let a second go to waste in Nobody. It’s a lean and mean R-rated action-comedy that begins and ends with a relentless pace while never forsaking character. Still, compared to Naishuller’s directorial debut, Hardcore Henry, his second feature is patient. The musician-filmmaker threw everything he had into the kitchen sink with his first (love-it-or-hate-it) action movie. Naishuller first directing credit, however, was a music video for his Russian indie rock band, called ...

‘Nobody’ Trailer: Bob Odenkirk Enacts Bloody Vengeance in a Thriller From the ‘John Wick’ Producers

John Wick, meet…Nobody. Bob Odenkirk has completed his transformation into action hero with the upcoming R-rated thriller, Nobody, a film written by John Wick scribe Derek Kolstad and produced by David Leitch, director of Atomic Blonde (and the un-credited co-director of the first John Wick). And with the team behind John Wick to support him, it’s no wonder that Odenkirk feels legitimately like an heir to Keanu Reeves’ assassin, or at least like his older brother — who will mow down many Russia...

Universal is making some more changes to its release date calendar due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

How to shoot “Hardcore Henry” style first person video

If you haven’t seen it by now, or even heard of it, Hardcore Henry is a feature length movie shot entirely in the first person. You can check out the trailer here.

‘Baby Driver’ and the Ongoing Evolution of Cinematic Action

As a die-hard action junkie, I constantly find myself pondering how this genre fights creative staleness. After decades of pulverized bodies and eviscerated landscapes, you’d assume filmmakers would be spinning the same bloody chainsaw blades by now. Can Hollywood forever recycle an “Expendables” formula by plugging in different renegades, a new villain, and loads more henchman deaths? At what point do franchises like Fast and Furious push too far and become ridiculous farces? How do you sustai...

‘Hardcore Henry’ Behind-the-Scenes Footage Is as Wild as You’d Expect

When I interviewed Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller at SXSW last month, we spent a fair amount of time talking about how shooting this film was a total pain in the ass. But that’s what you get when you set out to make a first-person perspective action movie – you get a lot of hard days and long nights and migraine headaches. And while I have mixed feelings on Hardcore Henry, the film is impressively assembled and utterly unlike anything you’ve seen before and the process of how it was sh...

Inside the World's First POV Action Movie: 'Everybody Has To Be Awake or Somebody Could Die'

Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated—and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto Copley, the long, hard road to the film’s April 8 release was worth it.Read more...

Alamo Drafthouse PSA: ‘Hardcore Henry’ Will Beat the Hell Out of You for Talking & Texting

In one week, you’ll be able to experience an action movie in from the point of view of the hero as Hardcore Henry turns the big screen into your own cinematic video game. But before then, the cinephiles at the Alamo Drafthouse want to make sure you’re still being courteous by avoiding talking and texting in the movie theater. However, if you happen to forget the rules, Henry and his friend Jimmy (Sharlto Copley) aren’t going to let you get away with it. In fact, they’ll beat the hell out of you...

Everything We Saw at the 2016 SXSW Film Festival

Few film festivals offer the breadth and variety of SXSW and this year was no exception. During my eight days there, I saw gentle comedies, brutal horror movies, fascinating dramas produced on shoestring budgets, inventive documentaries and even an R-rated animated film about talking food. It was one helluva week. Here is everything that I watched, including the (often very good!) movies that didn’t get full reviews.

‘Hardcore Henry’ Director Ilya Naishuller on How Making a First-Person Action Movie Is a Pain the Butt [SXSW Interview]

I had many conflicting thoughts about Hardcore Henry, one of the most impressively made movies to ever leave me unsure of what I just watched. But there is one thing I can say for sure: director Ilya Naishuller is a guy we should be keeping an eye on. No matter what you think of his ultra-violent, incredibly silly action film, there is no doubt that it is an impressive technical achievement. I can safely say that Naishuller, his crew, and his death-defying stuntmen have created a movie that is ...

‘Hardcore Henry’ is Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before, For Better and Worse [SXSW Review]

Hardcore Henry is less of a movie and more of a 95-minute assault on good taste, a bloody theme park ride in filmic clothing, and/or the gruesome collision of the video gaming and cinematic languages. It’s a singular experience that’s truly unlike any other movie, and for some viewers, it will still be, understandably, one film of its kind too many. But Hardcore Henry isn’t lazy and it isn’t half-assed and it is in no way derivative – for better and worse, it is an ambitious undertaking that ac...

World’s first feature length “first person shooter” movie coming soon, to a theatre near you

Shot almost entirely on GoPro cameras, and several years in the making, Hardcore Henry is hoping to set a new standard in action movies.
