Incredible First-Person Shoot-Em-Up Film Trailer

Main1.jpg
Currently wearing socks? We’ve some news for you: they’re about to be knocked off.
 
Just when you thought you’d seen everything to do with film (yes, Gravity was that good) along comes a sci-fi trailer shot entirely on a GoPro camera, plunging you into the dusty battle boots of a cinematic hero like never before.
 
Held by a specially designed rig which allows for natural movement and breakneck reactions, the camerawork looks majestic, also benefiting of course from clever direction, realistic, blood-splattered action and parkour-esque stunt work. With a near video game feel, the lengthy first-person POV take reminds of us of the only good scene in the otherwise forgettable Doom.
 
Aptly titled, Hardcore, it’s a full-blooded thrill ride which sees you, the viewer, thrust into the viewpoint of a newly restructured cyborg who must fight alongside a wisecracking army type to save your wife from the clutches of a physic tyrant named Akan across the urban battlegrounds of Moscow. 
 
Recognise the moustachioed mercenary leading the cyborg on the charge? That’ll be Hollywood actor Sharlto Copley, who probably hasn't seen this many squibs go off since District 9, and it’s a casting sure to help the film achieve its funding goal on Indiegogo.
 
So, if you like what you see below, and are frankly fed up of waiting for that belated holographic gaming console, click here to donate.
