The first trailer for the hilariously dark and viciously violent ‘Guns Akimbo’ featuring Daniel Radcliffe with guns attached to his hands and looking like he is having a whale of a time.
Echoing elements of Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, the Purge franchise, and videogames like Mortal Kombat the film is directed by Jason Lei Howden and stars Samara Weaving and Ned Dennehy alongside Radcliffe.
We spoke to both Radcliffe and Weaving at the premiere of the film at the Toronto Film Festival last year.
The film has a cinema release of March 5th.
Guns Akimbo Synopsis
Nerdy video game developer (Daniel Radcliffe) is a little too fond of stirring things up on the internet with his caustic, prodding, and antagonizing comments. One night, he makes the mistake of drunkenly dropping an inflammatory barb on a broadcast of Skizm, an illegal death-match fight club streamed live to the public. In response, Riktor (Ned Dennehy), the maniacal mastermind behind the channel, decides to force Miles’ hand (or hands, as it were) and have him join the “fun.” Miles wakes to find heavy pistols bolted into his bones, and learns Nix (Samara Weaving), the trigger-happy star of Skizm, is his first opponent.
