When history’s first filmmakers ran film through a camera at 24 frames per second, they weren’t concerned with story. They were just wowed by what they’d achieved, which was considerable.

Ever played a game like Halo or Call of Duty and thought, “Why don’t they just make movies like this? First person action films where you can do or kill any and everything?” Well, now they have. It’s called Hardcore Henry.
Yes, that's right. Sharlto Copley's next movie, Hardcore, will be like a First Person Shooter in movie form. We think. It'll be the first ever "POV action adventure film," according to director Ilya Naishuller.
