Hold on to your seats: South African actor Sharlto Copley has just finished filming Hardcore , an R-rated, gaming-influenced, first-person shooter pitched as the cinematic equivalent of an adrenaline shot. The debut movie from Russian director Ilya Naishuller, whose Bad Motherfucker music video garnered more than 39 million views online and comparisons to Quentin Tarantino, Hardcore tells the story of a cyborg created in a Moscow lab. Fresh from filming in the Russian capital, District 9 star Copley talks to The Calvert Journal about the film and his experiences of working in Russia. That I know for sure.
New Russian action film Hardcore Henry filmed in Moscow and was shot almost entirely as a first-person movie, with body-mounted cameras worn by the actors. The film follows a robotic-limbed super-soldier who wakes in a lab with no memory and discovers he must rescue his wife from a supervillain who plans to take over the world. Wide-angle GoPro cameras, commonly used by sports fans and professionals to film their exploits, were used for the first-person style. Internationally, Russia is not known as a film-friendly location and parts of eastern Europe are usually doubled for Moscow for stories set in the capital.
