Tom Hardy is getting dramatic for Child 44, and he’s also going a bit Russian, alongside an excellent cast including Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, Vincent Cassel, Joel Kinnaman, Jason Clarke and Paddy Considine.
Now the first trailer has arrived, but to watch it you’ll have to click over to Apple.
Based on Tom Rob Smith’s novel, with Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa directing, the Soviet Union set thriller is about a military police officer named Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy) who has to investigate a string of brutal child murders that took place during the Stalin era. As he begins to dig further and further into the case, he realises that his government is keeping a sharp eye on every move he makes, and refuses to admit that the killings are actually happening.
Oldman is the head of police, who has problems with what Hardy is doing, while Rapace, who’s in the image below, is Tom’s wife.
