Games in het First Person perspectief zijn natuurlijk geen uitzondering, maar voor het eerst duikt er ook een film op die volledig wordt opgenomen vanuit een First Person standpunt. Maak kennis met Hardcore Henry, een actiefilm waarbij de kijker zelf eigenlijk het hoofdpersonage vormt. Een beknopte beschrijving van de film vind je hieronder:

“Strap in. Hardcore Henry is one of the most unflinchingly original wild-rides to hit the big screen in a long time: You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry. Five minutes later, you are being shot at, your wife has been kidnapped, and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky); he’s a powerful warlord with an army of mercenaries, and a plan for world domination. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, and everyone wants you dead. Everyone except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley.) He may be on your side, but you aren’t sure. If you can survive the insanity, and solve the mystery, you might just discover your purpose and the truth behind your identity. Good luck, Henry. You’re likely going to need it…”


Hardcore Henry verschijnt in de Verenigde Staten op 8 april. Of er ook een internationale release komt, is niet duidelijk.
