Working your way through all the books that inspired 2015 movies? I hope you've gotten to Child 44, because the trailer is out for the Cold War thriller. Hardy plays a former secret policeman investigating a series of child murders in Soviet-era Russia. The movie looks extremely intense, but it's great to see Hardy reunited with his Dark Knight Rises costar Gary Oldman and his Drop costar Noomi Rapace. It's based partially on the true story of the Red Ripper (aka Andrei Romanovich Chikatilo), a serial killer who murdered women and children in Russia during Joseph Stalin's reign. Watch the trailer below and mark your calendar for the April 17 release date. »
Check out this first look at this captivating crime-thriller, and make sure that you mark your calendars to see Child 44 in theaters nationwide on April 17, 2015.
A politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia, Child 44 chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor.
Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys.

There are many reasons to hope that Child 44 does well. First, this period-set drama involving a serial killer looks really good — a well-acted grown-up movie that reminds me of the brilliant, under-seen Red Riding trilogy (and hardly just because it also features Paddy Considine), only this partially true child-murderer story takes place a few decades earlier and in the Soviet Union. Second, it’d be great to see Tom Hardy get a franchise that isn’t based on a comic book (he recently had to drop Suicide Squad anyway) or seems like it’s based on a comic book (Mad Max: Fury Road might as well be), and Child 44 is adapted from the first novel in a trilogy, so there’s a possibility of at least two sequels. In this one, Hardy plays a disgraced member of the military police investigating the death of a friend’s child, which »

When Johnny Depp‘s mustache comedy “Mortdecai” brought in less than $5 million on opening weekend, it marked the A-list actor’s fifth straight box office bomb. But he’s far from the only top billed actor to endure a tanker or two.

Tom Hardy has never met a funny accent that he hasn't fallen wildly in love with. His latest is a gruff Russian number for "Child 44," a new film based on Tom Rob Smith's best-selling historical thriller that follows a former secret policeman (Hardy) who is investigating a series of grisly child murders in Soviet Russia. And you can hear that accent and see Hardy in action in the gripping new trailer.
"Child 44" is based, in part, on a real life serial killer dubbed the Red Ripper who murdered more than 50 women and children in Stalin's supposedly perfect Russia. Hardy plays a man who is clued into the killer after a friend's child is murdered. This looks really intense. The all-star supporting cast includes Gary Oldman (Batman reunion!), Joel Kinnaman, Vincent Cassel (glimpsed briefly in the trailer), Paddy Considine, Jason Clarke, Noomi Rapace (re-teaming with Hardy after "The Drop") and Dev Patel. »

The big screen adaptation of Child 44 is described as a politically-charged serial killer thriller set in 1953 Soviet Russia. The movie chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Tom Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor.
Exiled from Moscow to a grim provincial outpost, Leo and Raisa join forces with General Mikhail Nesterov (Gary Oldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. Their quest for justice threatens a system-wide cover-up enforced by Leo’s psychopathic rival Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), who insists “There is no crime in Paradise.”
It’s an interesting sounding premise, and one many people will be familiar with due to the fact that movie is based on the 2008 novel of the same name. That was written by Tom Rob Smith, and was the first »

Summit Entertainment has unveiled the trailer for its upcoming "Child 44" thriller, starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Paddy Considine, and Vincent Cassel. Check it out below. Plot: Based on the first novel of a trilogy by Tom Rob Smith, the story is set in the Stalin era of the Soviet Union. An idealistic pro-Stalin security officer decides to investigate a series of child murders in a country where supposedly this sort of crime doesn't exist. The state would not hear of the existence of a child murderer let alone a serial killer. He gets demoted and exiled but decides, with just the help of his wife, to continue pursuing the case. The new movie is directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) and is set to hit theaters on April 17th. Trailer: »
One of our most eagerly awaited films of 2015 is Safe House director Daniel Espinosa's take on Tom Rob Smith's novel, Child 44. The acclaimed book was first published in 2008, and the movie adaptation of it stars Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Joel Kinnaman, Gary Oldman, Vincent Cassel and Jason Clarke.
Both the film and book are set in 1953 Russia, with the story following a secret police agent who refuses to denounce his wife as a traitor. Exiled, he joins forces with Oldman's General Nesterov to try and track down a serial killer. As you might expect, they discover more than they thought.
Nineteenth-century Italian violin virtuoso Niccolò Paganini was rumored to have made a Faustian pact in order to play like the devil, though the flexibility that enabled him to cover three octaves across four strings with one hand was more likely a side effect of a genetic connective-tissue disorder. Bernard Rose's elegantly staged but tonally flat biopic embraces the myth, even underscoring Paganini's rising fame, scandalous hedonism, and womanizing as an anachronistic form of rock-star fantasy. (It's like a humorless take on Ken Russell's Lisztomania, and who wants that?) Unlike the writer-director's 1994 success Immortal Beloved — owned by Gary Oldman's chameleonic transformation as Beethoven — Rose's cult-of-personality approach here suffers »
In the movie, Hardy plays Leo Demidov, a member of the Soviet military police in 1950’s Moscow. After his colleague’s son is found dead, Demidov becomes convinced the child was murdered. He investigates, only to be told by a superior (played by Vincent Cassel) that “murder is strictly a capitalist disease.”

We've already seen Tom Hardy and Gary Oldman at odds in The Dark Knight Rises, but now they are teaming up in the period thriller Child 44. The film chronicles the crisis of conscience for secret police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy), who loses status, power and home when he refuses to denounce his own wife, Raisa (Noomi Rapace), as a traitor. The two must work with General Mikhail Nesterov (GOldman) to track down a serial killer who preys on young boys. It looks like your average thriller, but judging from the first trailer just released, the performances seem likely to make it worth the price of admission. Watch it! Here's the first trailer for Daniel Espinosa's Child 44, originally from Apple: Stalin’s Soviet Union is an official paradise, where citizens live free from crime and fear only one thing: the all-powerful state. Defending this system is idealistic security »

We haven't talked much about the upcoming thriller Child 44 but the concept for this project is just too good to pass up.
Based on Tom Rob Smith's first novel in a trilogy, the story unfolds as a disgraced military police officer (Tom Hardy looking ragged and sporting a wicked Russian accent) investigates a number of child murders by a suspected serial killer. The big twist here is that the investigation takes place in the Soviet Union during Stalin's leadership.
The concept may well be familiar but the setting and period certainly add some unexpected intrigue to the story, not to mention a political element that usually doesn't play a part in your standard serial killer hunt movie. And then there's this cast. Aside from Hardy, the movie also stars Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman, [Continued ...] »
Tom Hardy rejoins forces with Gary Oldman for their fourth collaboration after The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Lawless, in murder mystery Child 44. The film sees a hunt for a prolific serial killer in Soviet Russia, where many claim murder just doesn’t happen. Directed by Daniel Espinosa, who graduated to Hollywood with his 2010 hit Safe House, the film looks incredibly tense, with the cold landscape adding to the atmosphere of the film.
We love a bit of Gary Oldman, especially when putting on an accent, and the duo of Oldman and Hardy hasn’t let us down before. Joining them are the likes of Charles Dance, Noomi Rapace, and Vincent Cassel, as well as Oldman’s Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes co-star Jason Clarke. It’s quite the international cast and we can’t wait to see Tom Rob Smith’s novel hit the big screen. »
