Guns Akimbo Trailer Goes Wild with Daniel Radcliffe & Samara Weaving
The first trailer for Guns Akimbo came online and, if this film doesn & Was not on your radar yet, it will almost certainly be after watching the madness contained in this piece of footage. The genre film stars former franchise star Harry Potter as a man who unwittingly finds himself with guns bolted to his hands. Rising star Samara Weaving, of renown Ready or Not also seems almost unrecognizable in what seems to be a completely wild ride, with flaming rifles and filled with bullets.
As we can see in the trailer, the film has a fairly interesting premise. There is something of a sick and twisted game set up by mysterious characters who sees two contestants fighting to the death, whether they like it or not. There are certainly vibrations Crank which occur here, with visuals which recall Scott Pilgrim vs. The World . It’s a hell of a mix. The two-minute trailer is filled with action, violence, humor and more WTF moments than you can count. One can only imagine what the full movie will look like.
This is the latest from writer / director Jason Lei Howden, who previously directed the equally insane Deathgasm . For Daniel Radcliffe, this represents another fascinating career choice in his life after Harry Potter . Undoubtedly, the actor could have gone on with large franchises and made shipments of money along the way. Instead, Radcliffe has starred extensively in short films that vary considerably from the genre to what he asked to do on the screen. He also has Swiss Army Man to his credit, which has become the "farting corpse film", as well as Kill Your Darlings Horns and Imperium .
On the other hand, Samara Weaving quickly asserts herself as a modern genre icon, with films like The Babysitter and Mayhem in his assets, in addition to last year's hit Ready or Not .
Guns Akimbo (Daniel Radcliffe) who lives a cheesy existence as a video game developer. But his life takes a dramatic turn when he inadvertently gets caught as the next competitor to SKIZM, an underground gang that deals in broadcasting live games of the dead. Miles excels at running away from everything in his life, but that won't help him survive Nix (Samara Weaving), a killer at the top of his game.
The film toured several festivals in the past year, including TIFF and Fantastic Fest. Unfortunately, I ended up missing it at the Fantastic Fest, but from the gossip I heard after the screenings, I was pretty disappointed, I couldn't tighten. He currently has a 64% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but let's be honest here, it certainly won't be for everyone. Guns Akimbo should be released in theaters on February 28 from Saban Films. Don't forget to check out the trailer for yourself.
