Tom Hardy gets his scent for justice on and tracks down a serial killer in Soviet Russia in Summit Entertainment’s drama thriller “Child 44.” Read on to know more about this preview.
Tom Hardy is definitely revving up his acting prowess ever since he was widely recognized for his role in “The Dark Knight Rises.” And he certainly has a thing in personifying his accents that started with his Brooklyn tenacity in “The Drop,” followed by his Welsh stroke in “Locke,” his Australian demeanor in “Mad Max: Fury Road,” and the metallic timbre that he was in “The Dark Knight Rises.” Now, he’s taking up the Soviet accent to a desperate, melancholic yet praiseworthy level in “Child 44.”
“The man that killed my son, he’s still out there.” From the director of “Safe House,” Daniel Espinosa, comes a drama thriller based on the bestselling novel by Tom Rob Smith — “Child 44.” The story basically centers on Leo Demidov, an agent in Russia’s secret police force played by Tom Hardy. This man of the law went through exile from his home, Moscow, because he couldn’t find it himself to brand his wife Raisa, played by Noomi Rapace, a traitor because of the loyalty he felt towards her. He then gets a new posting order that made him contact General Mikhail Nesterov, played by Gary Oldman, who beseeches his assistance for an ongoing murder investigation. It’s a case of serial killings, and the victims are young boys as Nesterov sets out to end such impunity. However, as Demidov gets deep into the case, he finds himself attracting the wrath of the state, which led to the dismissal of the crimes despite the disturbing yet plausible evidences.

The novel in which this movie was based from is actually a first of the trilogy. According to Slash Film, should this film become favorable to the Box Office, there is a high chance that it would be turned into a movie franchise. For those who’ve read the novel, they’d immediately catch on in the heavy vibe that the trailer splays out.
“Child 44” is directed by Daniel Espinosa and produced by Ridley Scott. It opens in theaters on April 17, 2015.
