Tom Hardy stars in the Soviet era-set thriller Child 44 and the mysterious story’s first trailer has arrived.
Child 44 is based on the book of the same name by Tom Rob Smith and takes place in 1953 Russia where a murder of a young child has Hardy’s military man told to ignore it.
As the victim was the son of a friend, he clearly cannot and by delving deeper into the murder, he discovers there are more children being killed.
Hardy’s Leo Demidov cannot sit idly by, and that does not bode well for his relationship with his superior, General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman). But, he does have the support of his wife (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows star Noomi Rapace) who will join him on the search for answers.
The film is directed by Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa and lands in theaters April 17. Oh, and it’s produced by Ridley Scott!
Child 44 has also released its poster and a series of stills. Check them out in the slideshow below and don’t miss Hardy in action in the role he’s most known for and watch The Dark Knight Rises online.
